Sundays beginning January 30, 1:15–2:15pm in Room 305

 

The doctrine of the Trinity is at the center of the Christian faith. Creation, the incarnation, the cross, the resurrection, our salvation, the great commission, and our present walk with the Lord all have their roots in the work of our Triune God. It’s one of the distinguishing marks of our faith as opposed to other religious views, yet many of us treat this doctrine as an abstract philosophical concept rather than a living reality in our lives. This course will help us to understand the biblical teaching of this great truth and to reflect on its implications for our lives. $20 for textbook and all materials. Taught by Scott Lilly; cost $20.

Wednesdays beginning January 26, 6:30–8:00pm in Room 107

 

The growth and expansion of Christ’s church has always been through disciples making disciples who make disciples, while the transformation of His people has always been through life-on-life relationships. This course will focus on learning key principles and practices necessary to help others grow in their relationship with Christ and to pursue a lifestyle of disciple making. $20 includes book and all materials. Taught by Pastor Kirk Baker; cost $20.

Grief Support

Wednesdays beginning January 26, 6:30–8:30pm via Zoom 

 

The loss of a loved one can be devastating.

GriefShare’s biblical, Christ-centered perspective helps people find or deepen their faith in Christ as we examine questions about death, dying, and mortality. Cost $20 for workbook.

Men's Ministry

Volume 2 begins Thursday January 20, Volume 3 Thursday April 7, 6:00–7:30am via Zoom

 

Join us for video teaching and small group discussion as we study the next two volumes in 33 The Series. Starting January 20 we’ll explore A Man and His Story, a six-lesson series that provides men with a biblical perspective of their “story.” It equips them to embrace how their past has affected their present and prepares them to deal with whatever the future may hold.

 

Beginning April 7, we’ll move to A Man and His Traps. The six sessions introduce a framework and process that challenge and equip men to go below the surface, look deep into their hearts, and explore areas that are too easy to ignore. Workbooks $15.

Teach Me Your Ways (Exodus)

Thursdays beginning January 20, 7:00 – 9:00pm via Zoom

Begin at the beginning—creation, marriage, sin, civilization. Then learn about God’s continuing lovingkindness and faithfulness to His covenant people, even when they let Him down. Book $11.

Saturday Mornings, 7:30am, Room 103

 

King Solomon once said, “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” This gathering is an uncomplicated time of encouragement from God’s Word, sharing our journey, and encouraging one another in prayer. Brothers stand with other brothers through the seasons of life, each helping the other stay true to the calling to be men of God.

 

The coffee is good; the company is better.

Sunday February 6, 1:30–2:30pm in Room 108

 

“I can’t believe I did that again. I’m a terrible person. I don’t deserve grace.” This emotion is shame. Since Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, the feeling of shame has ravaged our world. God came to redeem and set free, yet we often feel captive to our mistakes and failures. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Join us for this hour-long seminar with Pneuma Chicago Counseling on how to biblically understand, manage, and help others deal with shame.

Women's Ministry

Sundays beginning January 9, 11:30am–12:30pm in Room 304

 

Martin Luther said that “The best way to drive out the devil, if he will not yield to texts of Scripture, is to jeer and flout him, for he cannot bear scorn.” This is what C. S. Lewis does in The Screwtape Letters. At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, Lewis gives us the correspondence of the worldly-wise devil Screwtape to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man. It is entertaining, but more importantly, instructive in showing the insidious tactics of our enemy, and how we can triumph over temptation and the onslaught of Satan. Books are $9 and are available in class.
