Connections Room – February 11, 18, 25
Keith Berends, Kris Kusneske, Nate Bolhuis
Whether you are a brand new Christian or a lifelong Christian in need of a refresher, this class will lay a firm foundation to your faith by addressing a few of the most basic and important questions. There will be time for questions and discussion as we offer a brief overview on each of these three topics: Who is God? What does the Bible teach us about what it means to be human? How do you read the Bible?
Instruments in the Redeemer’s Hands by Paul David Tripp
Cambridge Room #112
The legacy we leave behind for family and friends speaks loudly about our character, our values, and our heavenward journey. The Legacy Builders Bible Study Hour class is designed for those who wish to leave a lasting impact on family and friends with the Gospel of Jesus.
“Isn’t God’s love amazing? God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things in the lives of others. God never intended us to simply be the objects of His love. We are also called to be instruments of that love in the lives of others.”
Young Married Class – You and Me Forever by Francis Chan
Wittenberg Room #106
The Young Married Class is designed to equip married couples seven years or less with the biblical design and foundational principles of the marriage relationship. It will also provide practical tools necessary for building a successful marriage. In an interactive and encouraging forum where couples learn from one another, we will cover topics through biblical study such as marital expectations, resolving conflicts, and the differences between men and women. Our kickoff study will springboard from Francis and Lisa Chan’s book and video called, You and Me Forever: Marriage in the Light of Eternity.
Reformation: History and Doctrine
Choir Room #200
It’s hard to overstate the significance of the Reformation. This year-long class will explore key doctrinal issues as well as the historical and biographical events that happened during the period. There will be ample opportunity for discussion and dialogue about doctrine, examination of its biblical support, exploration of its current application, and introduction to key primary sources. We should have fun! Bring your Bibles. Bring a notepad. Let’s dive into history and theology together!
Geneva Room #201/202
Roger Berry, Jim Rookus
The Koinonia class will have a sermon review discussion. You will experience Koinonia (fellowship) as we share coffee and treats before class, review Scripture, and share prayer requests. We will laugh and learn to love the Lord more fully as we interact on the morning sermon and the passage. We are a blended group of various ages and our goal is to encourage relationships that honor God in the body of Christ and help each of us walk in step with the Spirit in a celebration of God’s promises and the certain hope He provides.
Ladies Only – Don’t Follow Your Heart by Jon Bloom
Our biggest problems in life are heart problems and often occur because we follow our hearts instead of directing our hearts. We will use the 31 meditations in this book to help recalibrate our hearts to follow Jesus instead of our own sociopathic tendencies.
This class is designed to help connect young adults (18-30) into the life of Grace. Young adults often find themselves in new, busy, and challenging times of life. We want to offer a time to connect with peers and to think critically about their purpose and calling in the life of God’s church. Our time together ranges from discussing and applying the sermon to discussing a specific topic focused on this stage of life.
