Sundays 10 AM- 10:45 AM
Jerusalem & Athens: Christian Life on the College Campus
Rev. Juan Carlos Martinez, Room 214
What challenges do Christians face in college today? Are there opportunities for Christian students to continue to grow and mature in their faith, or is the assault on their faith unbearable? In this course, especially targeted for parents of high school students, pastor Juan Carlos Martínez will lean on his years of experience as a campus minister to help parents understand the unique spiritual challenges that their kids will face when they leave the home to attend college. This class will run for the month of May.
Philippians: Joy In Christ
Rev. Bob Roane, Room 204
Scripture says that the joy of the Lord strengthens us for Christ-like living. Paul writes this letter from prison in Rome yet rejoices in Jesus and urges us to do the same. Big themes include confidence in Christ; Jesus’ humiliation and exaltation; Christian unity, maturity, and thanksgiving; living for the goal of our prize in heaven; joy and peace in spite of suffering. We will use Let’s Study Philippians by Sinclair B. Ferguson.
A Revealing Walk Through the Revelation of Jesus Christ
Rev. Tim McKeown, Room 211
This is a slow-paced study of the book of Revelation. Our focus will uncover (Reveal!) that this book is a pastoral letter from Jesus Christ to his chosen and elect people of all centuries from the 1st to the 21st and beyond. It is written to help them and us understand and know what is going on behind the scenes as we experience increasing trials, tribulations, and anti-Christian tactics. The study includes a series of 22 videos approximately 25 minutes in length produced by Ligonier Ministries. After the video on each chapter, we will enter a time of Q & A where we will attempt to answer each question you, the class member, might have with the best biblical answer possible.
Theology & Life: Who Is the Holy Spirit?
-NEW CLASS BEGINNING MAY 15-
Dan Tidwell, Room 212
Starting on May 15 and going through the summer, this twelve-week series will feature Dr. Sinclair Ferguson as he traces the work of the third person of the Trinity through Scripture – from creation to the work of Christ to his dwelling in our hearts today. Along the way, he sheds light on the vital role the Holy Spirit serves. Dr. Ferguson’s goal is to help us know the Holy Spirit as a person, in addition to knowing of his power and work within us. Although the Holy Spirit is sometimes the forgotten Person of the Trinity, his presence and work is found throughout redemptive history in Old Testament as well as New Testament. This class is a combination of short teaching, video and discussion.
We will continue the Foundations of Grace series on New Testament in the Fall. We hope you will join us for both teaching series.
Women's Book Discussion
Lisa Swank, Stephanie Greene, and Anjali Berger, SonRise 203
This class exists to foster deeper community among CEPC women through Christ-focused discussion and prayer. Women will be reading and discussing, Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus: How the Jewishness of Jesus Can Transform Your Faith, by Ann Spangler and Lois Tverberg. This book considers the customs, beliefs, and traditions of the Jewish culture in which Jesus lived to help deepen one’s understanding of the gospel. For more information please contact Lisa Swank (firstname.lastname@example.org), Stephanie Greene (email@example.com), or Anjali Berger (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Young Adults: A Call to Christian Maturity
Marcelo Jakubovic & Julio Rodriguez, Room 213
The writers of the New Testament were deeply concerned with the spiritual maturity of every Christian. The Apostle Paul labored endlessly to present everyone “mature in Christ.” In this Sunday school, we will examine key passages and topics that address spiritual maturity, such as spiritual decay, abiding in Christ, the problem of sin, assurance of faith, and more.
ESL: The Gospel of Mark
Axel Sotelo, Chapel
The focus is to provide additional vocabulary to the ESL learners and to give them extra time during the week to hear and speak in English. All this will be done while studying the Gospel of Mark.
