Morning Bible Hour – Juan Hernandez
Title: “Christ Through Four Gospel Portraits”
Description: Christ Through Four Gospel Portraits will explore the distinct historical, literary and theological contributions of each of the NT Gospels to the question of the identity and mission of Jesus for its earliest readers. The series will begin with a general introduction to the four gospels and then explore each one individually and in a more in-depth manner.

 

Adult Christian Life Communities

Wanda Walborn – Drawing Near to God in the Midst of a Crazy Life, Part 2
What if we imagined more in our relationship with God? What if we embraced our brokenness and removed the masks we hide behind? What if we faced our fears and learned to overcome them? What if we listened to God and obeyed immediately? How might we be different if we leaned into the abiding presence of God? Join us as we explore these “what ifs” and allow the presence of God to draw us closer.

Ron Walborn – Developing a Healthy Healing Theology and Ministry
Is divine healing for today? If so, why are more people not healed? How can we make sure we are healthy in our approach to this important ministry? Are there things we can do to see healing occur more frequently in our lives, our families, and our churches? These and other questions will be addressed and discussed in this seminar on the continuing healing ministry of Jesus.

Dusty White – Caugh Not Taught: How to Build Christian Discipleship in Your Home
The aim of this course is to be super practical. There will be five topics, one for each day: 1) The three different important stages of parenting 2) Creating family values, not just rules 3) The importance of family rhythms and traditions (intentional vs reactive)
4) Parenting in a digital age (regarding tech devices) 5) Ballerinas and ninjas: discipling boys and girls in distinct ways.

Mark Schwarz – “EXILES” Hope in a World That’s Not Our Home
Do you ever feel like throwing in the towel when it comes to your relationship with God?  Well, the first-century Christians were feeling this same discouragement.  They were experiencing intense abuse and persecution for simply believing in and following Jesus.  So, the Apostle Peter wrote to encourage these suffering believers who had been scattered and exiled out of their homes and into a foreign land.  You may not be someone being thrown to the lions, but you might be experiencing some similar feelings of rejection and persecution because you follow Jesus.  My hope is that as we spend time together in 1 Peter we will discover the great transforming HOPE that Peter gives us in the powerful book of encouragement.

Amy Stout – Thriving Even When Life Disappoints
During seasons that feel wrapped in the cloak of disappointment, despair, hurt, burdens, and stress, we often kick into the barely-making-it-but-sure-faking-it survival mode. As we dig into God’s Word during this session and apply the truth we glean from the lives of Jesus, Moses, Leah, Hagar, Elizabeth, and others, I can promise, based on the faithfulness of God, that you will experience a renewed hope, a refreshed perspective, a release of burdens, a recovered joy, and a revived spirit!

Scottie May – Walking With Children Toward Jesus
From generation to generation, passing faith in the Lord Jesus to our children and grandchildren is our heart’s desire. But how do we do that effectively in the 21st century? We need to encounter God together through scripture and daily life. That means that I need to lead but also be a learner so that “one generation will commend your works to another” (Psalm 145:4a). We’ll explore how children can be formed in the image of Christ and the role that adults play in that process.

Chad Hayenga – (Weekend Community August 10 & 11) Spiritual Warfare 101
Spiritual Warfare: What is it? What isn’t it? How can Christians fight the battle effectively?
