Christian Growth Institute
Starting Sunday September 7th 2014, 9-10am.
Be transformed by the renewal of your mind Rom 12:2a
Christian Growth Institute is a collection of classes and curriculum designed to instruct and disciple Christians at differing levels of interest and maturity. Not everyone has the same shoe size but everyone wears shoes. In like manner, every Christian is clearly admonished to grow in the faith regardless whether they are new or more experienced.
I Peter 2:2 "Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk that by it you may grow up into salvation"
Therefore Christian Growth Institute has been developed to offer a range of classes for those still learning the basics to those more seasoned in Christ.
Bible Class: The Revelation of St. John
Sept. 7 - April 2015
Leader: Dr. Bellamy
Location: Fellowship Hall
The Apostle John writes in his opening paragraph: "Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near." So begins the Book of Revelation, with a promise we cannot ignore, one that should excite us with Anticipation. Bring your Bible and let's plunge into this fascinating book to discover treasures that we may not have expected to find. It is here that God reveals to John how the Kingdom of God will be brought to completion.
Christian Living Class: Unnoticed Idols
Sept. 7 -Oct. 5, 2014
Leader: Andy Black
Location: Family Life Center
Idol worship seems like something so foreign to us. We can't imagine bowing down to a rock or a piece of wood. But how many of us unwittingly turn parts of our lives over to other things without even realizing it? Come have coffee, sit with us at the round tables and join in!
Christian Foundations Class: What the Bible is all about.
Sept. 7 - Dec. 14, 2014
Leader: David Field and team
Location: Choir Room
Usually it is a good idea to get a little training when using a tool - so Christians can also benefit from training on the Bible. Have you ever had any of these questions? What is the origin of the Bible? How do you read the Bible? Can it be trusted? What are the guidelines for interpreting the Bible? In this class you will answer those questions and be much more comfortable with and confident in the Bible.
Coffee and snacks served in all locations.
Children's Sunday School will be restarting at the same date. Nursery provided for children Birth to 3 years.
Look forward to seeing you at Christian Growth Institute!
