"PAUL'S LETTER TO THE PHILIPPIANS"

"Written from jail, Paul thanks the Lord's followers at Philippi for helping him with their gifts and prayers.  It was at Philippi that Paul entered Europe for the first time, preached the Good News and began a Church. He warns them that they may have to suffer, just as Christ did and he is doing.

The Church was having problems because some of the members claimed you must obey the law of Moses, or they could not be saved. Paul warns them against such false teaching and reminds them that GOD's people are to live in harmony and to think the same way Christ did. This letter is also filled with joy".
This class is facilitated by Wayne Rackley and meets in the Chapel.

“WHAT WE BELIEVE”

Who We Are and What We Believe” is a 12 week class that speaks of our history as a non-denominational Church, our beliefs, the Bible and where it came from, creation  verses evolution, God’s Grace and salvation, and the Independent Christian Churches view on salvation, theology, and many of the other issues that face us today.

 

In our class we will answer questions like: 

  •  What does our Church believe about the Bible?
  •  Why don’t we belong to a Denomination?
  • Do we have a ‘Statement of Faith’?
  • What is our position on abortion, gay marriage, and other issues?
  • Why don’t we believe in some of the things the other churches believe?
  • Why do we have Elders and Pastors and where does their authority come from?
  • What is the function of the Deacons?
  • Why is the Bible Pastor David uses in his sermon outlines different than mine?
This class is facilitated by Pastor Ray Westman

GRACE: 
More Than We Deserve,
Greater Than We Imagine

 

Ever feel like you have written too many checks on God’s kindness account, or you drag regrets around like a ball and chain?  Do you think your life is so messed up you are beyond repair?  If so, GRACE is what you need.

 

Join our Women’s Sunday School Class  and discover just how much Grace God has and how His Grace can transform your life. 
Grace is the voice that calls us to change
and then gives us the power to do it.”  (Max Lucado)

 

This study by Max Lucado will teach us that grace may be a noun but we can experience it as a verb in action and something we should all experience to help transform our lives and the lives of those around us.

Facilitators:  Sharon Lombardo and Annette Ware

We will continue to travel with Moses and Aaron to Mount Sinai and the giving of the Ten Commandments - reading and studying each verse as we go relating it to Christ and God's Plan for the redemption and salvation of man.  We will see that the nature of man has not changed and our tendency to stray from God's Plan is still the same today.  Join us as we study God's Plan for His people today.
This class is facilitated by Darrell Riemer.

“Understanding & Recognizing Spiritual Warfare”

Are you aware that we are in a spiritual battle?  Jesus told us the thief came to steal, kill, and destroy; but He came so that we might have life more abundantly.  If you are not experiencing life abundantly and situations, circumstances, and relationships are not what they should be - then this class is for you.

 

Discover the three categories of curses that might be operating in your life and soul and how they impact your quality of life and your ability to function in His kingdom.  The enemy has eight doors that he enters through to destroy us.  Learn how to close those doors and breakdown the strongholds he creates to keep you in chains.

 

Discover the truth and life abundantly and walk in freedom and victory.
 

This class is facilitated by Joe and Valerie DeSapio

“Who Does God Say That He Is?

Misconceptions about God abound. But they don't have to. God has revealed His character in Scripture, illuminating the attributes that define Him. While we, being finite creatures, can never truly comprehend everything that God is, we should study what He Himself has said.

 

The Attributes of God, as presented by Dr. Steven Lawson, articulates a biblical understanding of divine attributes and explores how a right understanding of God can affect every aspect of our lives.

 

Each class will begin with 23-Minute video presentation followed by an interactive class discussion.
 
This class is facilitated by Bob Waas
