  • Reasons for the Bible -- Brian S. Chan
    The Bible is the foundation for all Christian beliefs. How can we know the Bible is God's Word versus a book by mere people? This class looks at reasons for why we revere the Bible as God's Word. We'll consider problems claimed about the Scriptures. We'll look at canonization, amazing histories, external sources validating the Bible, transmission, translation and, of course, a theology of Scriptures. The goal of this class is to intelligently form a foundation for which all our beliefs as a Christian are built on.
     
  • Digging Deeper -- Connie and Randy Karman
    God has called us to abundant life, but we often question what that 
    looks like. Yet our lives can flourish, spiritually and emotionally. Each week we will look deeper into Sunday's sermon, and discuss together how we can apply it personally and as a community.
     
  • Disney Devos -- David Hoffman 
    How do we engage with one of the largest entertainment companies in the world? Is there anything there that points to Christ? David Hoffman shares how the various Disney things he loves can be used to reveal Gospel truth. Disney Devos Zoom link.
     
  • Conversations in Romans -- Bob Drummond
    Romans chapters 1-10 are some of the most interesting, meaningful, and powerful chapters in all of scripture. Literally every verse seems to jump off the page and demand discussion. In "Conversations in Romans," Pastor Bob will lead a weekly discussion highlighting one chapter a week, and will guide you through these theologically rich and practical chapters. Come prepared to discuss what you read and bring your questions. Romans Zoom link.
 
HOLEY BUCKETS! PARENTING LIFE GROUP: Parents, are your
buckets holey or empty? Let's dig deeper into what it means to become spiritually whole parents, with our buckets so full the contents sprinkle out onto our kids. Save the date for our Introduction/Q&A Meeting on Thurs., Sept. 17, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. RSVP to Ingrid Moss at Ingrid@IngridMoss.com.
