PSALMS PDF Document
a 5-week class with Lee Campbell
“The New Testament is in the Old Testament concealed. The Old Testament is in the New Testament revealed.” Nowhere is this more evident than in the Psalms. Psalms are God's prayer book - teaching us how to pray honestly & loyally. Psalms are poetry - moving because poetry sneaks around our reluctance to feel strong emotions. The Psalms are honest - not always nice or happy, but they tell the truth about doubt during painful times. Come hear God speak through the Hebrew poets in this enlightening, stirring and challenging study.

SEXUAL INTEGRITY FOR MEN (FOR COLLEGE MINISTRY ONLY) PDF Document
a 5-week class, teachers TBA
@ 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 27 – October 25

21st CENTURY CHRISTIAN PARENTS PDF Document
a 5-week DVD class with discussion led by Patrice McCormac
New parents in the 21st century face a daunting and confusing array of challenges to raising a godly family. The culture is growing more dogmatic about parenting theories based on naturalism and postmodernism. Children face a consensus among their peers that explicitly rejects the Christian worldview. Future marriage and family success becomes every year less likely for today's kids. This course will address these challenges with wisdom from the Word of God and the experience of older parents. (students will watch the DVDs of the class taught by Dennis McCallum then discuss afterwards)

INVESTIGATING CHRISTIANITY PDF Document
a 5-week class with Doug Rudy
Why take the Bible seriously? Hasn’t science proven the Bible wrong? How could a loving God allow so much suffering in the world? If Christianity is true, what does that say about other religions? These are great questions, and ones that deserve answers. In this class, these and other questions are carefully thought through. If you are investigating spirituality, including the Christian faith, but have questions or reservations that need answers – you should find these five discussions very interesting and thought–provoking.
