We have four different classes on campus for you to dive into this summer.
Check out your options for Summer Electives!
Through the Bible: Origins
Ever heard of The Torah, The Pentateuch or the books of Moses? All three titles actually refer to the same thing: the first five books of the Old Testament. The epic narratives of Genesis - Deuteronomy tell the foundational story of humanity’s glorious purpose and also it’s tragic failure. It’s here that we find the origins of our faith. Understanding the scope, meaning and events of these five books is essential to understanding the whole of Scripture that follows.
During Through the Bible: Origins, we’ll explore the fascinating biblical characters & customs found in the Pentateuch, as well as the core theology and overarching themes that flow throughout these incredible books. As we study the lives of Adam, Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Joshua and others… we’ll explore the culture of the time period, unearthing deeper meanings behind some familiar stories and drilling down into passages we sometimes skip over to see what these timeless truths and the patriarchs that taught them can add to our understanding of the amazing God we serve. (There are a limited number of spots available for this class!)
Financial Peace University
With Financial Peace University, we’ll learn simple, practical and powerful biblical principles that will make a huge difference in the way we think about our finances. Using proven materials from finance expert Dave Ramsey, we’ll learn how to get rid of debt and manage our money more wisely.
Imagine your life right now - completely debt free. No car payment. No credit card payments. No student loans. But that money coming back to you to save, give and enjoy. No matter how good or bad your finances are at the moment, you’ll walk away from Financial Peace University with a clear plan for how to get from where you are to where you want to be.
The cost for this class is $99 which includes books and materials that will add to our classroom experience. (There are a limited number of spots available for this class!)
The Journey Course: Road to Completion
This course was created to answer some common questions we all ask at some point in our lives about the emotional challenges we face. Questions like:
- “What causes me to react the way I do?”
- “How do I change?”
- “Why do I seem to fall into the same patterns over and over again?”
- “Where can I find real solutions and strategies that really work for dealing with things like anger, fear, shame, depression or codependency?"
We’ve updated our format and added some new material. Each week, we’ll take on one major emotional topic and identify clear, solution-focused strategies that you can begin applying right away. Not only will you leave understanding more about the problem, you’ll have a working plan that can take from where you are to where you want to be. You’ll find real help that will produce real change… and give you real hope for the incredible future God has in store for you. (Class for ages 15 & up. There are a limited number of spots available for this class!)
The way we think is far more powerful than we often realize! Success in every area of life begins with a thought; so does failure. The way we think affects our walk with God, our relationships, our self-image, our finances, our priorities, and our ability to enjoy life.
Romans 12:2 tells us, “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think….” It’s life changing when we discover that wrong thoughts are often the root of our problems, and that God is ready and waiting to give us the insights and encouragement we need to completely transform the way we think.
During our upcoming summer series, Transformed, we’ll identify strongholds of the mind - areas where we’re held in bondage due to wrong thinking; and we’ll learn how to exercise the spiritual weapons of warfare we’ve been given to fight our enemy and his attempts to fill our minds with things that will lead us to far less than God’s best for our lives. The battle for your mind is a fight and you can and must win! It’s the will of God for you to be happy, to be successful and to live with peace of mind - to be an overcomer. Join us this summer as we learn simple, practical and powerful steps that will produce real and lasting change in your thought life.
