Our mission is to provide men and women opportunities and resources so that they may be grounded in the Word of God, grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ, and be transformed into Kingdom disciples. (Luke 2:52; II Peter 3:18; Romans 12:2; and Psalm 1)
Adult Sunday School | June 18—July 30
There are three classes offered:
Jesus Outside the Lines: American Christians can be tempted to define themselves in cultural language rather than in Biblical terms. Conservative or liberal, right or left, for the establishment or against it, and so on. Is it possible to take a stand for Christ and His Kingdom, rather than taking sides? Join us as we explore this very pertinent topic. Taught by Micah Everett, Curt Presley & Gray Tollison. Meets in the sanctuary.
What Did You Expect?: Whether you are single or married, this series on marriage with Paul David Tripp challenges us to look into the mirror of God’s Word and see ourselves with clarity. Perhaps we love ourselves more than our spouse; perhaps we love our little kingdom more than God’s big Kingdom. Join us as we learn what it means to pursue unity, understanding, and love in marriage relationships. Discussions facilitated by different CPC couples. Meets in front room of annex.
Getting to the Heart of Parenting: This class on the Christian family provides Biblical foundations for believers in any stage of life. Parenting is hard, but few things in life rise to this level of importance. As Paul Tripp explains in this conference series, parenting is so much deeper than rules and regulations. Come learn how a biblical view teaches that parenting is all about the exposure and change of a child’s heart. Discussions facilitated by Rob and Linda Coleman & Doug and Terri Sanford. Meets in the back room of annex.
