Multiply — Becoming a Disciple who Disciples
Two thousand years ago, Jesus walked up to a handful of men and said, “Follow me.” From the start, God’s design has been for every single disciple of Jesus to make disciples who make disciples. Yet, many of us who are followers of Jesus don’t feel sufficiently knowledgeable or otherwise equipped to fully answer this call. In this video/discussion class, we will use the book Multiply, by the always challenging and inspiring Francis Chan, to grow together as followers of Jesus who are motivated and prepared to more-actively share the Gospel with others.
Class Make-up: All adults are welcome

When the letter to the Hebrews was written, certain believers who were being persecuted because they had accepted Jesus as their savior were considering turning back to Judaism (the Jewish system of law) and away from the system of grace based on Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. In addition to exhorting these Christians to persevere in the face of hardship, Hebrews provides clear integration of Jesus into the context of Old Testament history and demonstrates the superiority of the gospel of Christ. Come join us as we explore this book and its influence in our lives today!

The Tech-Wise Family: Everyday Steps for Putting Technology in Its Proper Place
Making conscientious choices about technology in our families is more than just using internet filters and determining screen time limits for our children. It's about developing wisdom, character, and courage in the way we use digital media rather than accepting technology's promises of ease, instant gratification, and the world's knowledge at our fingertips. And it's definitely not just about the kids. As we dive into Andy Crouch's book, we'll explore questions like, "Who do we want to be as a family?" and "How does our use of tech move us toward (or away from) that goal?" Anyone who has felt their family relationships suffer or their time slip away amid technology's distractions will find in this book a path forward to reclaiming their real life in a world of devices.
Class Makeup: Young Families (generally anyone with a child in elementary school or younger, but anyone/everyone is welcome)
Location: Room 201
Facillitators: Justin & Jennifer Gerhardt, Brian & Kristi Jackson, Eric & Kerri Norbut
“Yeah, but How Do I DO That!?”: Spiritual Practices and Drawing Closer to God
Each of us have a desire to draw closer to Jesus Christ, to be in a deeper, more connected relationship with Him. God, out of His love for us, has provided a multitude of practices and disciplines to grow nearer to Him and become the people He has designed us to be. But sometimes we do not fully understand the “whys” and the “hows” of practicing such disciplines as generosity, silence, fasting, celebration, praying scripture, devotional reading, and others.
This class, drawing from many resources, will be a discussion of how we, as individuals, connect to God in different ways, how and why we struggle personally with some of our spiritual disciplines, and also focus on practically increasing the ways and the time we spend getting closer to Jesus Christ.
