SPIRITUAL FOUNDATIONS
Dates TBD
As a Christ-follower, what drives you toward a deeper relationship with God? We will explore the Christian practices and spiritual disciplines that shape our relationship with our Lord.

GROWING WITH OTHERS
Dates TBD
A solid understanding of scripture is foundational to living out a total surrender of every area of your life to Jesus’ Lordship. However, becoming a mature disciple of Christ must be lived out in a healthy community and with others that God places in your life. Throughout this class we will explore what living a life of total surrender and obedience to the Word looks like.

LIVING YOUR FAITH
Dates TBD
One of the greatest gifts we are given as Christ-followers is the testimony of our journey. Throughout this class, you will become confident in the person Jesus made you to be, and learn how to share your story with others who to need to hear His message of hope in a hurting world.

THE LETTERS OF PAUL
Dates TBD
Throughout the New Testament, Paul plays a significant role in authorship, theme, and influence during the first century. During these eight weeks, you will gain a deep understanding of the context in which Paul expressed theological truth to the early church and the background of his missionary journeys.
