Bridging the Gap:

The Jewish Backgrounds of the New Testament

Overview: As we read our Bibles, we often take for granted the huge historical gap between the Old Testament and the New Testament. We finish our Old Testament reading and turn the page to the New Testament and forget that approximately 400 years of history has taken place. That would be like trying to tell someone about our country without describing any historical event except for the Mayflower voyage! When we start reading the New Testament there is the sudden appearance of new groups and traditions that were completely absent in the Old Testament. This elective will survey the history between the testaments, the Jewish history and culture of Jesus and the apostles, and the eventual destruction of the temple in 70 A.D. Join us as we navigate these events to better understand the historical context of the first century readers and hearers so we can read our New Testament with fresh eyes into the world of our Lord’s first coming!  

Teacher: Mark Centers

Week 1: Intertestamental History
Week 2: Jewish Background of the New Testament
Week 3: Birth of the Church and the Birth of Rabbinic Judaism in 70 A.D.

Disciple Making:

Investing in Followers of Christ

Overview: There are many things that the 21st century church has put on the “back-burner” when it comes to church practice, but one that stands out amongst others is discipleship. It seems lately the emphasis has turned solely to evangelism. Some will go out and knock on doors, lead altar calls, pray prayers, report baptism numbers, and then…nothing. New believers are left to fend for themselves with an enemy that is seeking to devour them. When we read Jesus’ command in Matthew 28, he doesn’t tell us to “make converts”, he tells us to “make disciples.” Join us for this class as we examine the Scriptural witness on leading new believers in discipleship and our church’s role in the process so that we may produce workers for God’s kingdom for his glory!

Teacher: Jim Knauss

Week 1: What is a “disciple” and why make them?
Week 2: The process for making disciples
Week 3: Scriptural witness to making disciples and the church’s role

Reading for Joy:

Joel

Overview: We serve a covenant making and covenant keeping God who will have his “day”, the Day of the Lord. But what do a plague of locust and an attacking army have to do with this? We will see the themes of judgment, repentance, and restoration in clear view of God’s plan for His people. Joel will open to us a fresh look on God’s redemptive plan as we ourselves anticipate the Day of the Lord. Join us as we read and discuss the book of Joel in its three chapters over the course of these three weeks.

Teacher: Kevin Johnson

Week 1: Introduction to Joel & the COMA Method; Joel 1
Week 2: The Doctrine of Scripture; Joel 2
Week 3: Reading the Bible One to One: Joel 3

The Sign of Baptism

Ephesians

Overview: Our Lord Jesus commanded disciples to be baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Baptism is a beautiful, public profession of one’s faith in the Gospel and their inclusion in the Church. It’s also the way the church publicly identifies the disciples she makes in obedience to Jesus. If you have believed in Jesus and need to be baptized—or if you just want to learn more about what we believe about baptism—this baptism class is for you. In this class we will answer three questions: What is baptism? Who should be baptized? How do we practice baptism at Heritage? You’ll be given helpful resources and spend time with a Heritage pastor to learn about baptism and next steps for getting baptized at Heritage. Contact Pastor Trent at trent@heritagegvl.com with any questions.

Teacher: Trent Hunter

Week 1: What is baptism?
Week 2: Who should be baptized?
Week 3: How do we practice baptism at Heritage?

Decision Making and the Will of God

The Doctrine of the Trinity

Overview: The average adult makes tens of thousands of decisions every day. One study suggests we make over 200 decisions a day on food alone. The overwhelming flood of decisions or the sheer magnitude of one very important choice often leaves us fatigued, anxious, joyless, and paralyzed. Can I know God’s will for my life? What job should I take? Is God calling me to this? Should I marry that person? Spend that money? Pursue that opportunity? The good news for the Christian is that God gives us everything we need to glorify him in all our decisions. We can make decisions that result in rest and not regret. Join us as we look to God’s Word together and learn how God guides us and cares for us in every decision.  

Teacher: Jason Read

Week 1: Decisions: Too Many, Too Big, Too Anxious
Week 2: God’s Will: Can We Know It?
Week 3: Pagans, Patriarchs, and Pentecost

Week 5: Suffering and Trials
Week 6: Biblical Decision Making: Tools & Processes

Evangelism 101:

Sharing Your Faith with Boldness

Overview: Perhaps you’ve heard it said, “Preach the gospel, and if necessary, use words.” Well, in Scripture, every evangelist uses words, especially the Lord Jesus! In this class, we will not only learn how to “use words”, but how to use biblically-faithful gospel words in a way that will prepare you to speak. We’ll look into the Scriptures for the theological underpinnings and the practical methods for sharing the good news with a long-time neighbor or a random person at the coffee shop. Come ready to discuss topics ranging from God’s sovereignty to conversation starters (“bridges”) in real-life opportunities. Our prayer is that no matter where you are in sharing your faith, you will leave this class with a new confidence and emboldened attitude to share the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ with a lost and dying world.

Teacher: Chris Gerber

Week 1: Why do we Evangelize?
Week 2: What is our Message?
Week 3: God’s Role in Evangelism
Week 4: The Believer’s Role in Evangelism
Week 5: Getting the Conversation Going
Week 6: Putting Evangelism into Practice

Personal Spiritual Disciplines

Exploring the Depths of Our Union with Christ

Overview: As Christians, we are taught to read our Bibles and pray as far back as we can remember. We are taught how important it is to commune with God and study his word. These important practices, we believe, are things every Christian should do. . .just because. In this class, we want to prove to you that there is a glorious purpose behind each one of these practices that goes far beyond the “just because.” We want to show you how God uses his voice and his ear as different means of his grace to bless us as believers, advance his kingdom, and bring himself glory. Please join us as we learn and practice various personal spiritual disciplines to bring ourselves into the channels of God’s grace so as to grow in him, strengthen his church, and bring him glory.

Teacher: Dan Rundle

Week 1: The Means of Grace
Week 2: God’s Voice Understood: Principles of Scripture Study
Week 3: God’s Voice in Practice: Meditation and Memorization
Week 4: God’s Ear Understood: Attributes of Prayer
Week 5: God’s Ear in Practice: Fasting and Journaling
Week 6: Putting it all Together: A Practice in the Spiritual Disciplines

Reading for Joy:

Ephesians

Overview: The church in Ephesus found itself amidst an epicenter steeped in the arts and trade. Much like our nation today, this rich mixing of various cultures and religion brought with it extensive idolatry and immoral practices. Paul’s exhortation to the church there began with none other than one of the most beautiful declarations of the gospel and what it means for the believer to be “in Christ.” He emphasized a life centered on the good news and specifically how the person and work of Christ impacts the purity of the believer and church as a whole. Join us for this 6-week class as we seek to cherish God’s Word both privately and corporately in learning to read the Bible “one-to-one.” We hope to see you for this time of rich instruction and prayerful fellowship!

God's Love in Marriage

The Doctrine of the Trinity

Overview: Whether single, dating, engaged or married, we all need an awareness of God’s love in order for our relationships to overcome the devastating effects of sin. Only when our hearts are fully aware of God’s love are we equipped to love and extend the grace that we all need and long for. In Christ, we’re fully known and yet fully loved. This is how God relates to us, and how we can and should relate to our loved ones, especially in marriage.  All are welcome to join as we explore the love of God that brings deep and lasting change.  

Teacher: Greg Fox

In Him We Live and Move and Have Our Being:

Exploring the Depths of Our Union with Christ

Overview: As Christians, our union with Christ isn’t confined to the high-water marks of our spiritual experience; it is the ever-present reality in which we live our lives. More than a remote theological concept, our union with Christ is where we truly ‘live and move and have our being,’ transforming our daily lives and faith. In this class, we will explore the richness of life joined with Christ and unearth its profound impact on what it means to be a Christian.

Teacher: Dan Cruver

Week 1: Union with the God-Man

Messianic Hope:

The Son of God in the Old Testament

Overview: After his resurrection, Jesus said to his disciples, “everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled” (Luke 24:44). The Old Testament points to the person and work of our Savior, but that’s not always easy to see. Join us as we survey the Old Testament, looking for the promised Messiah, and may the Lord cause our hearts to burn just like the experience of the disciples on the Emmaus Road as Jesus opened the Word to them.

Psalms

But much more than just a book we can relate to, Psalms recalls the history of God’s faithfulness to his covenant people and lifts our eyes to the promised Messiah and his eternal reign. Join us for this discussion-focused elective as we study the Psalms together and behold the majesty of our God. Participants will learn how to read different types of Psalms, skills for studying passages within the whole context of the Bible, and how to read the Bible one-on-one with another person.

Knowing God:

The Doctrine of the Trinity

Overview: We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—co-equal in power and glory, who has revealed Himself in the works of creation, providence, miracles, and especially in the inspired Scriptures. Our church confession proclaims that truth, and the universal church has likewise confessed and fought to guard this precious truth. In this class we’ll see how this revelation changes how we read Scripture, confess truths about God, worship, pray, and look to our eternal future. Join us as we grow in our knowledge and worship of our Triune God. 

Teacher: Tom Mackintosh

Week 1: Reading the Trinity in Scripture
Week 2: Confessing the Trinity in History
Week 3: Worshipping the Trinity

Mortification:

Killing Sin Every Day

Overview: The Scriptures promise us that if we “put to death the deeds of the body” we will “live (Romans 8:13).” But what does it mean to put the deeds of our bodies to death and what kind of “living” is God’s word talking about? So important are the answers to these questions that the great Puritan John Owen, in his classic treatise The Mortification of Sin, said, “The vigor, and power, and comfort of our spiritual life depends on the mortification of the deeds of the flesh.” Join us as we expand upon John Owen’s urgency by looking to God’s Word to understand His plan and power for killing sin.

Teacher: Jim Knauss

Week 1: What does it mean to mortify sin?
Week 2: Why do we need to mortify sin?
Week 3: How do we mortify sin?

Reading for Joy:

2 Peter

Overview: A few years after penning his first letter, the Apostle Peter once again wrote to his fellow believers. False prophets, clever teaching, and a weary impatience seem to have stirred up trouble. So Peter points them toward the glory of Christ, the trustworthiness of God’s Word, and the faithfulness of God to encourage their steadfastness and growth. Join us as we study 2 Peter together in this discussion-focused elective. Participants will learn the major themes of the letter and new skills for studying passages within the whole context of the Bible.

Teacher: Dan Rundle

Week 1: Introduction to 2 Peter and COMA Method; 2 Peter 1
Week 2: The Doctrine of Scripture; 2 Peter 2

The Gospel and Arguments for God

Overview: Introducing a friend or neighbor to the good news of Jesus Christ often includes conversations around the existence of God. A typical roadblock toward faith is the question, “Does God actually exist?” Unfortunately, in those situations of defending our Christian faith, or apologetics, we often focus on winning the argument while the gospel takes a back seat. In this class, participants will learn to use apologetics as a tool to help them better explain the hope of the gospel and the glory of Jesus Christ. We’ll explore the classical arguments for God’s existence each week by defining an argument, considering typical refutations, and explaining how the argument reveals the wonders of the gospel. Come grow your confidence and knowledge in approaching your lost neighbors with God’s truth.

The Hope of the Messiah in the Book of Daniel

Did Jesus Have to be Perfect?

Overview: Several centuries before the coming of the Messiah, God’s people found themselves once again in exile, this time in Babylon. But as with every moment of history, God was in complete control. The book of Daniel captures a portion of that history with some of the Scripture’s most memorable events and strangest dreams. From the lion’s den to the fiery furnace and four beasts coming out of the sea, every bit of the 12 chapters displays the power of our sovereign God over the nations of the world. This class will explore the text and themes of Daniel by working through the book a couple chapters at a time, looking for promises to be fulfilled when the Son of Man would finally come. Join us as we look closely at the hope of the Messiah and his unrivaled kingdom as exiles awaiting his return. 

Teacher: Mark Centers

Week 1: Daniel 1-2: The End at the Beginning
Week 2: Daniel 3-4: No Other Gods Before Me
Week 3: Daniel 5-6: Humbling of Two Kings

Reading for Joy:

Colossians

Overview: As the saints in Colossae faced the threat of false teaching and a distorted gospel, Paul wrote to them concerning the one thing that would help them hold fast to the truth—the supremacy of Christ over all things. Written while on house arrest in Rome, Paul called them to keep their focus on Christ, the one who redeemed them and united them to himself. Join us as we study the Colossian letter together and behold the preeminence of Christ in this discussion-focused elective. Participants will learn the major themes of the letter, new skills for studying passages within the whole context of the Bible, and how to read the Bible one-on-one with another person.

Marriage Relationships

Overview: Paul tells us in Ephesians 5 that marriage, in a mysterious but real way, pictures the hope and truth of the gospel. Marriage and the gospel are wed together. Our relationship with God is what makes our relationship with each other not only possible, but progressively growing and strong. So the gospel picture your marriage paints grows in beauty over time as the gospel changes you. In this course we will explore biblical tools to help marriage relationships grow and change for the glory of God.

Teachers: Travis Fleshman and Brad Hilgeman

Week 1: The Gospel: The Hope for Mankind and Marriage
Week 2: Relationship from God’s Perspective
Week 3: Marriage Basics
Week 4: Marriage Goals and the Christian Life
Week 5: Communication Comes First

Shepherding a Child's Heart

Esther

Overview: Parenting is a wonderful, God-given task that’s full of joy and heartbreak, clarity and confusion, fun and exhaustion. But what is our goal in parenting? As Christians our goal is to parent our children according to God’s Word and in a manner that clearly proclaims to our kids their need for the gospel and the hope found in Jesus Christ. We’re aiming far beyond external obedience. In the book Shepherding a Child’s Heart, author Tedd Tripp teaches us how to lead our kids to understand themselves in light of God’s rule and his Word. Join us for this 6-week, discussion-oriented class with assigned weekly reading as we consider together how to best lead our kids toward the good news of Jesus Christ.

Evangelism and World Religions:

Speaking the Gospel to Other Faiths, Part 2

Overview: This is a continuation of the class from earlier this year. The first six weeks is not required in order to take Part 2. Anyone is welcome to join! We live in a religiously diverse culture. A Muslim works in your office. Your uncle is Jewish. A Buddhist just moved next door. We no longer need to travel across oceans to meet those with different religious views. If you’ve been wondering how to approach your Hindu neighbor with the gospel, then join us. We’ll look at six different world religions. You’ll learn some distinctives of these religions and some strategies for approaching people in those religions with the gospel of Christ. We hope you join us as we equip ourselves to speak the good news about Jesus to those who need Him.

Teachers: Various Elders

Planning and Investing for Eternity

Why Getting People Saved Isn’t Enough

Overview: Jesus told one man to sell everything he owned. The disciples left everything to follow Jesus. Obediently following Christ means we submit every part of our life to Christ, including our budget now and our future financial plans. How do we steward our resources today for God’s glory? How does a Christian think about retirement differently than the world might? Join us as we explore biblical wisdom and practical considerations for budgeting, financial planning, investing, retirement, and estate planning.

Teachers: Greg Fox and Sandy McCormick

Esther

Overview: A young Jewish girl became queen of Persia and saved her people from destruction, but God is never once mentioned by name in the book of Esther. What then does this story teach us about our God, and how does it point us toward Christ? Join us as we study the book of Esther and glimpse the beauty, majesty, power, and mercy of GodThis class is designed to equip each of us to read the Bible with another person, whether believer or non-believer. In fact, a goal for class participants is that you do outside of class what we do in class—invite another person to read Esther with you just like we’re doing. Join us in this discussion-filled group effort to peer into the Scriptures so that we may find lasting joy.

Teacher: Chris Gerber

The One Another of Biblical Counseling, Part 2

Overview: This is a continuation of the class from earlier this year. The first six weeks is a prerequisite to Part 2.

Teachers: Travis Fleshman and Brad Hilgeman

Shepherding Group Leader Training:

How We Care for Each Other at Heritage

Overview: Why do we have small groups? What should happen in a small group? Why do we call them Shepherding Groups? Who gets to lead one? How is that done? In this class we’ll explore the biblical basis for small groups and our reasons for emphasizing them at Heritage. We’ll also look at details like what happens when you meet and how you lead a group discussion. From the big picture to the nuts and bolts, this class is designed to equip people to lead small groups in our church. The class is a requirement for those who will be new SG leaders; it is highly recommended for current SG leaders; and it is open to anyone in our church who is curious.

Teacher: Kevin Johnson and Jason Read

Torah and You:

A Christian’s Relationship to the Law

Overview: Paul told Timothy that all of Scripture is inspired and profitable—including the Law of Moses. Yet we often avoid that part of the Bible because of its ancient context and the challenge to rightly understand God’s purposes. However, the Law is a foundation for the rest of Scripture and it reveals the kind and tender heart of God. Most importantly, it helps us understand the necessity and purpose of Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection. Join us as we dive deep into the Torah and learn to love God more through his Word.  

Teacher: Mark Centers
