World Religions & Worldviews
Living in a diverse, global society affords us the opportunity to interact with people from all around the world. The challenge is understanding what they believe and what possible obstacles they might have to the Gospel. This fall we will evaluate the major world religions and prominent worldviews in hopes that students may learn to have an informed conversation with others.
The Essential Commandment
When Jesus was asked what is the greatest commandment his response was to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself. This fall we will study what the Great Commandment looks like on the ground in our day-to-day lives, in hopes that we will truly be changed by Christ into people who love God and love others with all that we are.
James - Live Your Faith
The Book of James was not written to a specific church or group. It is written with the general church audience in mind and makes the book readily applicable to a wide range of circumstances and situations across many cultures and centuries. We will address matters such as: the testing of our faith, overcoming temptation, demonstrating our faith, prejudice, controlling our tongues, harmony within the church, recognizing the dangers of wealth, patience, and the power of prayer.
Radical by David Platt
We invite you to encounter what Jesus actually said about being his disciple, and then obey what you have heard. Consider with an open heart how we have manipulated a God-centered gospel to fit our human-centered preferences. Let's take back our faith from the American Dream. This includes a 6 part DVD series with David Platt. This class will challenge you to discover a true biblical worldview and provide a fresh vision for you and the church's mission in the world.
