As an equipping church, we desire to offer regular Equipping Classes to prepare you as a minister of the gospel for your everyday life. Below are the Equipping Classes which are open to our church and others around the city beginning in January:
Perspectives Course (Tuesday nights beginning 1/14) – God has a “world-sized” role for every Christian in His global purpose. This 15-week discipleship course that takes you through the Bible, back in time and across the globe to journey together toward a better understanding who God is, what He is doing and your role within that.
Financial Peace University Course (Sunday mornings beginning 1/19) – Alongside Dave Ramsey’s FPU teaching, our Financial Stewardship Team will walk you through a 9-week course learning the basics of budgeting, dumping debt, planning for kids’ college and retirement, and much more.
History of Christian Doctrine (Sunday nights beginning 1/19) – Church history allows us to understand why the church thinks, acts and speaks the way that it does today. Join us as we journey through church history and doctrine to be comforted and challenged that Jesus Christ is faithful to his promise to build his church.
Rhythms of Renewal: Gospel Formation for Women (Sunday nights beginning 1/19) – Stress and anxiety are common threads for women regardless of life season, vocational commitment or marital status. Is there relief for this seemingly endless cycle? This class will combine truth from Scripture, stories from women “in process” and practical application steps to move us toward Gospel rhythms – rhythms that nudge our souls from stress to peace and anxiety to purpose.
Disciplines of Godly Men (Sunday nights beginning 1/19) – This class will practically equip men with practical spiritual disciplines to be men of consequence who are trained to be good at being godly men.
