Xenos Elective Classes:

a 10-week class with Randy Jones
It’s sometimes hard to move on in life when you are still dealing with the grief and emptiness that happens after a loved one dies. GriefShare is a seminar and support group for people grieving the loss of a loved one. It features biblical perspective on topics such as the different effects of grief, the “why” issue of death, how joy and pain can coexist, how God uses suffering to help us grow, what suffering tells us about ourselves, and how suffering helps us to serve others. Whether your loss is recent or in the remote past, the GriefShare seminar is a beneficial tool in understanding of the impact of death on our lives. You’ll learn how to go through a healthy season of grieving, then begin transitioning to emotional and spiritual wholeness.
First class will be held Tuesday, Sept 8 due to labor day
Then Mondays, 7 - 9 p.m.
September 14 - November 16
$15 for all

a 5-week class with Pat Reeder
This course is the second of four courses on the Pentateuch (first five books of the Bible). Exodus contains the flowering of many themes first glimpsed in Genesis. We first see Israel as a full nation. God rescues his people from Egypt with spectacular signs and acts of judgment. The Law is given on the Mt. Sinai. All the while, God is dealing with stubborn ingratitude of Israel and the flawed leadership of Moses and Aaron. We will naturally examine the epic-scale narratives and their lessons for us. We will also explore what exactly we can learn about God from his law: a tutor to leads us to Christ and a yoke that neither the Israelites nor the apostles could bear (Cf. Acts 15:10; Gal 3:24).

Wednesdays, 7 – 9:30 p.m.
September 23 – October 28 (Skipping 10/21)

$38/adult or $12/student

a 4-week class with Kevin Furno
C. J. Mahaney in, The Cross Centered Life, observes: “Name the area of Christian life that you want to learn about or you want to grow in … to become a better husband, wife or parent? None of these can be rightly understood apart from God’s grace through Jesus’ death. They, and indeed all topics, should be studied through the lens of the gospel”, p. 76. This four week class will teach and discuss how a married couple builds a grace-centered marriage through three grace-centered lenses – What is a grace centered marriage, barriers to a grace-centered marriage, building a grace-centered marriage.

a 5-week class with John Ross, Doug O’Malley & Brian Adams
@ the 4th st Pavilion: 1934 N 4th St
Maintaining sexual integrity within Christian community is harder than ever with the availability, accessibility, anonymity and extent of sexual stimulation in our culture today. Pornography use among Christian men is widespread, and the consequences are extensive. More and more Christian men are abandoning the values portrayed in the Bible of sexual integrity. Do you struggle with pornography, lust or sexual sin? This class seeks to define the problem and help Christian men renew their vision for being men of sexual integrity.

Saturdays, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
September 26 – October 24
