CURRENT ELECTIVE CLASSES:

 

Ezekiel
a 5-week class with Lee Campbell
Studying this prophecy is like climbing a mountain: challenging, confusing and just plain hard work.  But, like a great mountain climb, the view from the top of the glory, sovereignty and mercy of God is breathtaking.  We will dive into visions that are significantly alien.  We will ponder the meaning of many unusual performance prophecies.  We will wrestle with predictions that don’t easily mesh with those of other prophets.  This class isn’t for everybody but it will be a blessing for those who are willing to take the hike.  

Wednesdays, 7 – 9:30 p.m.
July 1 - 29
$45/adult or $15/student 

 

discipleship for adults
a 5-week class with Ben Foust
What does effective discipleship look like in adult ministry? This class will explore that question from biblical foundations for discipleship, to factors in our adult ministry field, to key practical components of discipleship.  This class is a good fit for anyone in adult ministry who aspires to make disciples, wants to sharpen their discipleship ministry, or who wrestles with with what discipleship should look like in their home church setting. 
Wednesdays, 7 – 9 p.m.
July 8 – August 5
$45/adult or $15/student

 

Genesis: The Conflict over Creation
a 5-week class with James Rochford
How do we interpret the opening chapters of Genesis? Does Genesis allow for an Old Earth? What about theistic evolution? Is the genre of Genesis history, poetry, or mythology? In this class, James Rochford will primarily focus on the hermeneutics and interpretation of the text of Genesis. Though he will discuss how to integrate the natural sciences with Genesis at times, the focus of this course will be the interpretive issues regarding Genesis. Students will learn to assess the genre of Genesis 1-3, as well as evaluate the various interpretations, including Young-Earth, Old-Earth, Theistic Evolution, Day-Age, Gap Theory, Literary-Framework, Six-Day Revelatory, John Walton's Function Interpretation, and William Lane Craig's Mytho-Historical Interpretation. Rochford will also take students through a verse-by-verse interpretation of Genesis 1-3, comparing and contrasting these various views. This class will be in hybrid digital format on both Youtube and Zoom.
Wednesdays, YouTube video lecture posted at 7 p.m.  Zoom discussion following at 8:30 p.m.
July 1 – 29
$45/adult or $15/student
