The Story of Elijah
January 7 – March 11, 2018 at 9am in Room A8
While many of the Old Testament’s stories are fascinating, it’s often difficult for readers to understand what the Old Testament has to say to us today. One of the ways to see the real value of these stories is to read them within the greater context of a character study. In this class, we will be looking at the life of Elijah, one of the greatest of ancient Israel’s prophets. A man chosen by God to stand against rampant idolatry, Elijah’s life is full of clear examples of God’s power. Yet he still struggled with doubt, fear, anger, and depression. He was alone for much of his ministry, and was hunted and threatened by his enemies. Through it all, though, we see God’s grace poured out to him. In this class, we will be finding inspiration through Elijah’s life as we face today’s struggles.
Go and Do – Missions as a Discipline
January 7 – March 11, 2018 at 10:30 in Room A8
We’re not meant to live safe, happy, successful Christian lives! Jesus calls us to something more. Why settle for a life that will soon be forgotten? Get caught up in God’s work in this world. We’ll look together at what it means to have eyes that see, hands that serve and feet that go. We’ll explore following God’s call to action in your family, your personal life, in the city and in global cross-cultural witness using the book Go and Do by Don Everts. You’ll see how you can live your life on mission, whoever you are, whatever you do, wherever you go. Get a glimpse of what Jesus is doing, and go and do likewise.
