winter/spring 2023 Classes

Today many believers fail to give the proper attention to the Old Testament that they should and therefore miss out on some rich instruction. The Old Testament can sometimes be a bit intimidating to the reader. Nonetheless, God tells us through His Word that “all Scripture is inspired by God.” Therefore we would like to invite you to join us this winter as we begin an overview of the Old Testament. This first semester we will be looking at the 5 books of the Pentateuch and the 12 Historical Books of the Old Testament, From Adam to Esther. You will become familiar with the major themes of these books as well as major themes that flow throughout the Scriptures. You will definitely be introduced to a God who is like no other. Come join us as we delve into these glorious and beneficial books of the Old Testament.
“Talk” seems so normal, so ordinary, so harmless. Yet there are few things we do that are more important. And underneath the normality of it all is a great struggle, a war of words that we fight every day. Who hasn’t been hurt by the words of another? Who hasn’t regretted something they said? Who hasn’t had to referee an argument? Who hasn’t wanted to talk seriously with a loved one, yet there seems to be no time? Recognizing that words are powerful, Paul Tripp shows us how the gospel transforms the way we communicate. Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Word, is the only hope for our words. In our war of words, he is the one who gives us the victory. Tripp directs us to a renewed reliance on our heavenly Father’s abundant grace and a more Christ-honoring, people-benefiting life of talk.
Not only will we dig down into the Scriptural, historical, and theological implications for our understanding of the Trinity, but we will also seek to understand what the practical implications are for our devotional life, convinced that every doctrine is meant to be applied… even the doctrine of the Trinity! It has been said what comes to mind when we think about God is the most important thing about us… is your view of God thoroughly Trinitarian, the view God has of Himself? Come and delight yourself in God as He really is.
