In addition to Core Classes and Bible Fellowships, we offer the following Sunday electives:
Get an overview of how Jesus made disciples, with a view to developing or enhancing your personal disciple-making strategy. This class is designed for teens and adults, and is ideal to attend with someone that can serve as your disciple-making partner after the class ends. Participants will be invited to the full experience beyond the classroom: a devotional study of Jesus’ disciple-making strategy and a post-class coaching. Regardless of where you are in your walk with Christ, this class will help you develop as a disciple of Christ and your next steps in obedience to Matthew 28:19–20. REGISTER FOR SPRING 2019.
Do you know what to expect when you pray? How does God view prayer, and what moves His heart? What happens if we don’t pray? Developed to lay a strong foundation for your prayer life (whether you’re called to prayer ministry or just want a deeper walk with Jesus), this class will cover these questions and other foundational aspects of prayer. Participants will also learn about—and receive an invitation to join—our prayer ministry. REGISTER FOR SPRING 2019.
Refugee Ministry Elective
According to the United Nations, there are more refugees in the world today than in any other time in history. Many refugees have been resettled in Northern Virginia and Cherrydale’s current Focus for Four is on Syrian refugees. This six-week class elective will help you learn more about refugees, how to start serving them, and how to better minister to them and to their unique needs. REGISTER FOR SPRING 2019.
Women’s Elective: Women and the Redemption Story
What does the Bible really say about women? Throughout the Bible, we’re told the story of God’s redeeming love—a love that is revealed in God’s unique design of men and women. We’ll journey through the Scriptures, focusing specifically on key passages that reveal God’s heart for women and our important role in His plan. During this class, we’ll explore difficult questions from often-avoided passages and find fresh insights from more familiar passages. Women taking this class will be encouraged and inspired by how our lives can tell the beautiful story of God’s redemption. Class registration closed; all spots filled as of 1/3/18.
