Overview: Work is an essential part of life; it seems as normal as eating or breathing. In fact, we may feel as though we can’t escape it. Our experiences of work are all over the spectrum, and our views of work can be quite positive or incredibly negative. However, God has significant words about work, its place in our lives, and how we should view it. Be a part of this class as we think about what work is, survey current views of work, look at God’s thoughts on work, and see how our experience of work could be so much more fulfilling.
As we seek to grow together, our church family pursues instruction and relationships. Sunday mornings at 11:00, Electives are the primary time for instruction. After the morning service, we gather in a variety of classes to learn practical ways we can grow in our walk with Jesus and in our relationships with each other. Electives run for varying periods of time, and our calendar year is divided into three sections or trimesters (winter/spring, summer, and fall) with breaks scheduled between. During the adult Electives, children, middle school, and high school students meet according to their grades.

Overview:The “Book” of Psalms contains a treasure trove of rich Old Testament theology. In it are the prayers, hymns, and laments of our ancestors to our great God. The Book of Psalms is not a hymn book. It is a five-part story that chronicles the rise and fall of the Davidic dynasty (Books 1-3) while calling the nations to join YHWH (Book 2) and mourning the “failure” of the Davidic covenant (Book 3). But this story does not end in despair. Book 4 takes the reader on a journey back to the roots of authentic biblical Judaism, while anticipating the deliverance of the world by David’s greater Son—marked by the return of the king, the Messiah (Book 5). Come traverse the beautiful landscape of this book this summer.

Overview: How could David describe God’s Word as his delight (Ps. 119:174)? How could he say that the Scriptures were sweeter than honey and more precious than gold (Ps. 19:10)? Because in them he had glimpsed the beauty, majesty, power, and mercy of God himself. That’s the reason we’re going to read the Word, specifically Luke, together. This 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 Luke 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.
