restoring all things

a practical guide to culture

Cultural pressure is increasing, especially on our youth. Yet even in a world of addictions and contridictions, we can live with clarity and confidence. In this honest, practical guide for students and adults we consider how we can influence the culture, rather than culture changing us. Guided by: Gary Heffner, Kyle Mason & Noel Aldrich

According to Psalm 19, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky proclaims his handiwork.” What can we learn and how should we respond to God’s power, design, and beauty of creation? Teacher: Chuck Griffith

DEUTERONOMY What does it mean to have a relationship with Jesus Christ? Deuteronomy is the foundation upon which the rest of the Bible is written, and as such, is the document that most explicitly describes the relationship between the Great King and His people throughout all of history and into eternity. Teacher: Scott Mawhinney

October 29 - December 17 Sunday @ 10:15 AM

HOLY HOLY HOLY

PURSUIT

This class will explore some of the dynamics of relational discipleship that can lead to greater spiritual maturity and change. The class is not so much about 'how to grow as a disciple' as much as 'how a disciple grows’.

God is holy. And yet He calls us to "be holy as I am holy" (Leviticus11:45). He desires to conform us to His holiness through grace, and the result will be worship and a living testimony to a dying world.

Teachers: Ken Aldrich

Teacher: Craig Coleman

DISCOVER YOUR UNIQUE S.H.A.P.E.

A S T U D Y I N R O M A N S

We are sinners who struggle with truly knowing Jesus. We are wired to be performance driven and to earn our justification and sanctification. God’s gift to us is so beautifully shown in Romans where Jesus is the subject and we are the object of Grace! Teacher: Kevin Carlson

In all of history, God has never made anyone else like you. He has given you unique gifts, abilities, passions, personality and experiences. Through this class you will encounter more deeply the beauty of who God has made you to be and invite you to serve the kingdom of God out of your unique S.H.A.PE. Teacher: Chris Knaebel

Even Jesus didn’t know the day or the hour when the end would come. This class investigates what the bible actually teaches about heaven, the gutwrenching reality of hell, how it will all come to be...and why it should even matter to us. Teacher: Steve Jeantet

Many children will never receive another birthday gift from their father or mother who gave their life while defending our freedoms. But we can give that gift by providing a special birthday celebration for those children in our area who are up to 18 years of age.
