A Passion for Prayer

Of all the disciplines of the Christian life, prayer is perhaps the most neglected. However, Jesus’ brief, earthly life was permeated with it. If our Lord made prayer such a priority in word and deed, shouldn’t we? A Passion for Prayer, by Tom Elliff, seeks to help you develop and deepen your communion with God. By drawing on personal experience and the reassurances of God’s Word, Pastor Tom Elliff shares the principles, challenges, and disciplines of prayer.

A Beautiful Design

God created us to function according to His perfect design and, for all of human history, our world has been male and female. But our ever-changing culture faces challenges because of sin. The church no more than ever needs to be a safe refuge for the gender confused, the sexually broken, the single, the married, and the divorced. This study gives evidence that God’s plan for man and woman is the ultimate design and that life lived within this beautiful, unchanging design leads to our greatest joy.

Biblical Parenthood

Biblical Parenthood is more than just a class on parenting. It’s a journey that will explore what the Bible says about parenthood and the family as well as help participants in understand the reason for the family, God’s purpose for parenting, and why this impacts everyone in the church. This class is applicable not only to those in the parenting stage of life but also to singles, those married with no children, and those past parenting years as empty nesters and senior adults. Topics like God’s purpose for the family, family worship, formative discipline, fatherhood and boys, motherhood and girls, teen years, tech kids and social media, and the overzealous parent will be covered.

The purpose of New Testament Survey is to deepen participants’ knowledge of the context, content, and theology of the New Testament as well as prepare them for focused study of individual New Testament books. We will cover aspects of the cultural backgrounds of the New Testament, the history of the Church, and the essential teaching of the New Testament, and its Biblical Theological framework. Substantial emphasis will also be given to themes of each New Testament book. This semester we will focus primarily on the Gospels and Acts.

Intro to Apologetics

The purpose and nature of apologetics is often misunderstood. Some people think it’s about arguing for the faith, while others think it’s about apologizing. In reality, apologetics simply refers to the defense of what you believe to be true. It is a ministry of helping people with tough questions. This class is designed to show students how apologetics will help them serve the church, build their confidence, and better articulate and defend their faith.
