Starting Point

(Starts Sept. 16) Everything has a beginning or a starting point – your life, your relationships, your education, your career. Sometimes we forget that faith has a starting point as well. For some of us, our faith journey began in childhood as a handed down set of beliefs. Or perhaps you developed a framework of faith through personal experience. Or maybe you had no faith at all. But what if you cound find a new starting point for faith?

Starting Point is a 12 week conversational environment where you can explore faith and experience community. Your questions about God can turn into a conversation about faith. It’s a place with opportunities to discuss your questions with others who are on a similar journey.

Students watch a video by Andy Stanley on their phone or computer at home before coming to class as well as read a short chapter with opinion questions in a book ($10 purchase). Books can be ordered for you or we can tell you how to order your own.

Faith Works: Living What We Claim to Believe

From the first to the last verse of the book of James, God gives us one of the most practical pictures of the Christian faith in all the Bible. Written to a people who were scattered and suffering, James envisions communities of faith; caring, providing, and praying for one another as they show what the life of Christ looks like in action.

Possibly more than any other new testament book, this letter from James lifts our lives far above the superficial religious formatlities we are so prone to settle for and sets our sights on active, authentic faith that makes a radical difference in the needs of the world around us.

The Timothies Class will be watching and discussing this study written by David Platt and available through righnowmedia.org.

Location: Room 101 (ground floor of the Education Bldg.)

John: Finding Life

A warm welcome awaits you in the “Together in Christ” class as we explore the Gospel of John, one of the most beloved books of all Scripture. John, the discipile closest to Jesus in spiritual fellowship, provides an eyewitness account of Jesus’ life, ministry, death and resurrection. Under divine inspiration, he records some of Jesus’ deepest thoughts and sayings.

Jesus’ claims about himself and his deity are presented clearly by John – “I am the bread of life”, (John 6:35), “I am the light of the world”, (John 8:12), “I am the good shepherd”, (John 10:11), “I am the way the truth and the life”, (John 14:6). John himself tells us why he wrote, so “you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”

A pulpit in our church has words inscribed from John 12, “We would see Jesus”. Knowing that truly “seeing Jesus” is life altering, Together in Christ has this desire as we study the Gospel of John. Come and join us!
