THE CALL (September 12-December 5)
6:45 – 8:30 p.m., Room 122
The Gospel of Matthew: Old Testament Made New study is for the man who wants to dig deeply into the Scripture. It involves enough homework each week to make you think about that section with challenge, yet not so much as to burden your week. You will learn from others as you discuss the questions and then hear an overview from our teacher. Matthew will give you a new understanding of God’s Kingdom plan.
Teacher: Dr. Pete Deison

The Fathering 101 curriculum is Biblically based and is designed to equip fathers of any age to “Understand the Role” so they may “Fulfill the Role” in their family—the role of discipleship. Being the dad…God wants you to be is the highest calling for any man. God has begun a movement. Join Him!

WORK MATTERS (September 19-November 14)
6:45-8:00 p.m., Room 262
Lesslie Newbigin has written “the congregation has to be a place where its members are trained, supported, and nourished in the exercise of their parts of the priestly ministry in the world. The preaching and teaching of the local church has to be such that it enables its members to think out the problems that face them in their secular work in light of their Christian Faith.” It is for this purpose that [email protected] will be offering a class during midweek that will ask and answer the question “does my work matter to God?” We will examine what the Bible says about our work and what God expects from us in and through our work. Come and see how your work matters to God.
Teachers: Bill Lamberth and others
