Lent 2016 Class Series

Making Sense of the Bible – Rediscovering the Power of Scripture Today

“Denominations from evangelical to mainline continue to experience deep divisions over universal social issues. The underlying debate isn’t about a particular social issue, but instead it is about how we understand the nature of scripture and how we should interpret it. The world’s bestselling, most-read, and most-loved book is also one of the most confusing.” – Adam Hamilton Rev. John will be basing this study on material written by Rev. Adam Hamilton, one of the country’s leading pastors and Christian authors. We will be addressing the hot-button issues that plague the church and cultural debate, and answer many of the questions frequently asked by Christians and non-Christians alike. Who decided which books made it into the scriptures and why? Is the Bible ever wrong? Is Revelation just about end-times? The goal of this study is to discuss often misunderstood biblical themes and hopefully lead people to a deeper appreciation of the Bible so that we might hear God speak through it and find its words to be life-changing and life-giving.

The 7 Experiment: A Mutiny Against Excess

Do you feel trapped in the machine of excess? Author Jen Hatmaker was. Her friends were. And some might say that our culture is. When Jen was called “rich” by a child who was living in poverty, she began a social experiment which evolved into a spiritual journey. Through this study, you’ll start that same experiment, at whatever level you choose. We will be focusing on 5 key areas. The class schedule will be: 2/21 @ 4pm - Food; 2/28 @ 10am - Spending; 2/28 @ 4pm - Media; 3/6 @ 4pm - Possessions; 3/20 @ 10am - Stress.
