WHO IS LIKE YAHWEH?: EXPLORING THE HEART OF OLD TESTAMENT THEOLOGY
a 5-week class with Jim Leffel
Old Testament Theology is a 5-week class focusing on four crucial themes: (1) How we can know God through the scriptures; (2) the thematic unity of the Old Testament; (3) the uniqueness and grace of God; (4) the purpose of God in history--the meaning of "salvation." The course is more advanced than our Survey of the Bible and will require some challenging reading.  Each week, students will apply the concepts covered in class and readings to the inductive study of selected Old Testament texts.

SEXUAL INTEGRITY FOR MEN
(FOR COLLEGE MINISTRY ONLY)
a 4-week class with Doug O’Malley
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.

OFFERING SUPPORT FOR THE GRIEVING
a 4-week class with John Montgomery
Have you ever felt confused about how to help a friend who has lost a loved one?  Do you have a hard time sensing whether it’s time to move in close with deep questions or whether it’s time to create a normal atmosphere with friendly banter?  Too often, we shy away or remain silent out of fear of saying or doing the wrong thing.   This class will go in depth into how to minister to those who are grieving loss, how to ask appropriate questions and where to draw appropriate boundaries.
Note: This course is designed to help an individual learn to support a grieving person, not find support for themselves.
Wednesdays, 7 – 9:30 p.m.
April 8 – April 29

$35/adult or $12/student 

FRIENDSHIP
a 5-week class with Lee Campbell
God designed us for relationship with himself and with others. We don’t do well without relationship psychologically, physically, socially or spiritually. Yet, people report being increasingly lonely. If we had good parents they taught us that if we wanted a friend we needed to be a friend. Good advice!  This class is devoted to the art of being a friend centered on a few important principles and opportunities to practice these principles.
