Sundays 10 AM- 10:45 AM
Women’s Book Discussion: Mama Bear Apologetics
Lisa Swank and Stephanie Greene, SonRise Building 201
Now more than ever, it is important to be prepared to make a defense for our Christian faith. I Peter 3 says, “Always be prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you.” This book simplifies apologetics, making it clear and accessible to ordinary people. It is not just for moms but for anyone who wants to be equipped to give a clear and concise answer for their faith to friends and family. This study will help us think critically about the underlying philosophies that have helped shape the postmodern era and will help us respond to those lies with the truth of the gospel. Come join us as we encourage one another through lively discussion and prayer time.
The Theology and Practice of Sanctification
Tim McKeown and David Sapp, SonRise 202
The class will encourage believers in becoming more Christ-like by covering topics related to sanctification, including what sanctification is and isn’t, God’s purpose for humanity, the image of God, what happened when Adam and Eve sinned, free will and human inclinations, marks of true faith in Christ, positional sanctification in Christ vs progressive sanctification through the Spirit, biblical “means of grace” that help us become more Christ-like, temptations and triggers, and sanctification for specific concerns such as addiction, depression, and emotions.
Christ’s Wisdom in Proverbs
Rev. Bob Roane, SonRise Building 204
Jesus taught that all the Old Testament Scriptures point to him and that the Spirit of Christ moved the Old Testament writers to write all that they did. God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) made Solomon very wise, but Jesus said that he was greater than Solomon in every way. In Proverbs, Jesus helps us to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. Christ gave us the Proverbs and walked according to them himself. Now after his sinless life, atoning death, and powerful resurrection, Jesus helps us to follow him in paths of righteousness. He is our Wonderful Counselor who came to save us and make us Christ-like.
Philippians: Applied and Practiced
Roger Wernette, Main Building Room 210 (former Bridal Room)
The class will study Paul’s letter to the Philippians with the intent of finding what Paul would tell us about living the Christian life and how he made disciples. We want to learn what God is telling us in Philippians and then we want to encourage each other to be obedient to that message. We are expecting to do a practical study of the book that we can then apply to our lives.
Young Families Class: The Gospel Shaped Marriage
Rev. Juan Carlos Martinez, Main Building Room 211
Marriage is the union of two sinners, so there is always room for growth. In this class, we will study Gospel Shaped Marriage, by Chad and Emily Van Dixhoorn, to learn how Christ calls and enables us to love our spouse well. Whether you are planning on getting married, are newly married, or are married and have kids, this class will help you learn about God’s plan for marriage, and will offer real-world advice from a biblical perspective.
Union with Christ by Sinclair Ferguson
Dan Tidwell, Main Building Room 212
The Apostle Paul had no question about what it meant to be a Christian: he was “in Christ.” This simple phrase encapsulates the glorious benefits and blessings of the Christian life, and the importance of this expression is underscored by how regularly Paul used it. But many Christians today suffer from an identity crisis, unaware of this truth and how this new identity can reshape every aspect of their lives. In this 12-part teaching series, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson explores the crucial meaning of our union with Christ, revealing that being a Christian is far more wonderful than many of us know.
Confessing Together: The Westminster Confession of Faith
Travis Graham, Tommy Ikard, and O'Banion Williams, Main Building Room 213
What is the Westminster Confession of Faith? Why is it still relevant today? Why should I care? This class will walk through the Westminster Confession in a conversational setting, applying these truths to our everyday lives.
Young Adults Class: Fruit of the Spirit
Marcelo Jakubovic and Julio Rodriguez, Main Building Room 214
In this series, we will explore Paul’s famous fruit of the Spirit passage as recorded in Galatians 5:22 (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control). The fruit of the Spirit is not brought about by our own efforts and works, rather, the fruit is produced in the life of the believer by the work of the Holy Spirit. In this study, we will be looking at different New Testament and Old Testament passages and see that the Spirit of God, in the history of redemption, has always been using the Word of God in the hearts of the people of God to produce fruit and mold us and conform us to the image of Christ.
