a 10-week class with Gary DeLashmutt & John Cleary
This class covers both courses on Ecclesiology – Previously divided into Ecclesiology 1 & 2. The material is designed to not only establish the foundations of the "why" and "what" questions about the church - but "how"to make these practical in our daily living as "the church".Topics include the origin and mission of the church, how to create and implement structures that advance the church’s mission, and areas of ministry every church should be engaged in – worship, evangelism, follow-up, and discipleship. It will address several questions: What kind of people should lead the church? How much authority should they have? How should they respond to sin? Who should give money to the church and how should these funds be handled? What can we do to ensure that our ministry is built on a solid, lasting foundation?

Xenos Elective Classes:

a 5-week class with Brian Gardner
Are you struggling with sexual sin, lust, and pornography? This class, based on the book, Porn Free: Finding Renewal through Truth and Community, will show you how the grace of God, the power of the Word, and building accountability in relationships can set you free from bondage. You'll learn how the gospel affects our sexuality and releases us from the power of sexual sin. You'll also experience the release of grace in discussion groups, where you can walk in the light with other brothers who are seeking to grow in this area.

Students will need to obtain a copy of the book Porn Free: Finding Renewal through Truth and Community which can be purchased in the Study Center bookstore or 4th St Coffee bar.

Wednesdays, 7 – 9:30 p.m.
April 1 – April 29
$10  for all  (Register before 3/31)


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.

Wednesdays, 7 – 9:30 p.m.

a 4-week class with Mary Beth Gladwell
Can marriage work in the 21st century? What would a good marriage look like? Could the Bible, written thousands of years ago, possibly have anything relevant to say about this issue? This four week course will consider what we can do as women to improve our marriages. We will explore such topics as sex, forgiveness, how to create an environment of acceptance and many more.

Wednesdays, 7 – 10 p.m.

a 3-week class with Mike Sullivan
If you haven't studied the lives of other Christians, you should! Christian biographies inspire us to live for Christ and help us avoid the mistakes others have made. They are filled with adventure and suspense. They demonstrate how theology influences our actions. And they give us deeper insight into human nature and ourselves. This three week course will help you read biographies critically and introduce you to the life of Watchman Nee, George Whitfield, William Carey, and a few other amazing people you've probably never heard of. You'll be inspired and sobered by their stories.

Wednesdays, 7 – 9:15 p.m.
April 1 – April 15
$22/adult or $7/student 
(Register before 3/31) 


GRIEFSHARE: the journey from mourning to joy
a 10-week class with John Montgomery
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.
