2019 Discovery Group Courses
Christianity and Sexuality (Quest)
John Sung Building
11:00a - 12:15p
Questions you've wanted to ask in church but have been afraid to. Join us as we tackle real-life questions on topics relating to sexuality: dating, LGBTQ, pornography, self- esteem, sex in the media, and sexual/emotional abuse. Learn to love as God loves as we explore these topics through the lens of God's purpose for human sexuality.
Come, Lord Jesus
Ming Dao Classroom 2
11:05a - 12:15p
"Come, Lord Jesus" is the last chapter of our three-year journey through the Bible. Join us as we examine the source of our hope and joy in all of life's circumstances through the testimony of Paul's last days and the various letters at the end of the Bible.
Heaven Meets Earth: The Surprising Christian Hope
Ming Dao Classroom 1
11:05a - 12:15p
“What do Christians hope for? To leave this physical world and go to “heaven” after death? What is “heaven” anyway, and how does it relate to “earth”? What do we mean by the “resurrection of the body” and “new creation”? Please join us for “Heaven Meets Earth” as we explore these and other questions about the Christian hope. In the process, our preconceptions about that hope may be challenged in surprising and exciting ways. This course will engage all who are interested in the meaning of life — not only after death but also before it.
The Money Challenge
Ming Dao Classroom 3
11:05a - 12:15p
Did you know that Jesus said more about money than he did about heaven and hell combined? What does the Bible teach us about money? How does God want us to manage the resources we have? How do we decide how much to spend, save, invest, or give? Let’s study the Scriptures together and strive toward the goals of “giving generously, saving wisely, and living appropriately.” (Rainer)

Principles of Prayer
Luke 18: 1-17
One of the areas in which we all need to grow is in our prayer lives. But, for some reason, it seems to be a challenge and an area in which we struggle. Jesus taught His disciples some principles about prayer that might help us grow and thrive in prayer as individuals and as a church.Listen
