Men's Life Wednesday @ 6:30AM - 7:45AM | Location: Johnson Education Building, Room ES308-314

Wednesdays, 6:30-7:45 a.m., January 17 through March 28. Led by Dr. Tom Pace. When Jesus was putting together his leadership team - the people he would apprentice to carry his world-changing work forward – he picked twelve regular guys.  They weren’t especially brilliant, or courageous, or influential.  But Jesus could see in them the seed of the Kingdom of God.  Jesus chose them intentionally, and he chooses you and me as well. This semester we will consider these twelve regular guys, and see if we can find a reflection of ourselves in them. New guys are always welcome! Because of the Fellowship Hall Renovation, we will meet in room ES308-314 this Spring.

Celebration of Discipline Tuesday @ 6:00PM - 7:30PM | Location: Johnson Education Building, Room ES306

Tuesdays, 6-7:30 p.m., February 13 through May 8, 2018, Room ES308. Led by Dr. Linda Christians and Ken Jacobson. Celebration of Discipline is a contemporary exploration of the classical spiritual disciplines. In the life of Jesus, the Apostles, and the Church throughout history, the principal purpose of the disciplines is to intentionally place the believer in a position in which the Holy Spirit can work in his or her life. Each discipline is a practical step we can take to place ourselves before God and allow him to minister to us as we grow in our faith and understanding. Our goal in this study group is to consider each of the disciplines and work to put them into practice in our lives. Strong elements of the group will be discussion and accountability around the practice of the disciplines each week. Join us as we dig in and get to the place where God will change us this spring!

Six Recurring Tensions Within the Church Sunday @ 4:00PM - 5:30PM | Location: Johnson Education Building, Room ES306

Sundays, 4-5:30 pm, February 11 through March 18, Room ES306. Led by Rev. Thomas Harper. Like most history that is worth telling, the history of Christian theology keep changing directions. Theologians not only come up with new answers, they often ask new questions. Each age of Christianity has had to deal with different issues that are a part of their distinct culture. Still, some basic issues keep appearing throughout the centuries. These tensions tend to affirm two important elements of the Christian faith that, at face value, seem at odds with one another and therefore have never fully been resolved. In this six-week study we will explore the balance and mystery of five such tensions that have had a particular importance in Christian theology: (1) The Humanity and Divinity of Christ, (2) Reason and Revelation, (3) Works and Grace, (4) Spirit and Structure, (5) Predestination and Free Will, (6) Church and State.
