LIFEclasses are a series of classes to help you become established as a fully devoted follower of Jesus.
The classes are divided into two groups: The Essential Five (E5) and Building Blocks
The Essential Five
Growing into Christlikeness is never “done.” But, we believe if every Christ-follower were to embrace a minimum “baseline of maturity” they, and our community, would be radically transformed.
The following five classes are what we like to refer to as "The Essential Five":
Everything has a starting point. Faith has a starting point as well. For some of us, our faith journeys began in childhood, or maybe you had no faith at all. Too often, a faith formed in childhood isn't strong enough to withstand the pressures of adult life.
But what if you could find a new starting point for faith? This is an 8-session small group conversation about faith. Whether you're new to faith or not, it's a place where your opinions are valued, and no question is off limits.
INTRODUCTION TO THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is often portrayed as something “weird.” But the Spirit is not a something, but rather someone. This class will lead you into a personal discovery of the most ignored and misunderstood person in the church: the Holy Spirit.
You can overcome conflicts in your life because of your position in Christ as a child of God. This class will help you identify and break free from condemning thoughts, compulsive behaviors, personal conflicts, despair and spiritual struggles.
FAST TRACK TO UNDERSTANDING THE BIBLE
In this class, you will be introduced to the entire Bible – Genesis to Revelation – in only eight sessions. Through a creative memory technique, you will understand key points, principle figures, major events and big-picture themes of the Bible.
THINKING LIKE GOD WHILE LIVING AMONG HUMANS
What does it mean to consistently think and act like God? Are you sure the way you view and interact with today’s culture is biblical? This class will help you filter through the myriad of voices competing to shape your worldview.
Beyond E5, are a group of classes structured to provide foundational strength in key areas of life. While not a comprehensive list, Building Block classes include:
DEFINING THE RELATIONSHIP
LOVING OUR KIDS ON PURPOSE
