In addition to Sunday morning core classes and Bible fellowships, we also offer electives on key topics:
A Christian View of Work
Following Timothy Keller’s Every Good Endeavor, this elective seeks to understand, from the wisdom of God’s Word, how the Christian gospel changes not only our lives but the way we work. This Christian view of work—that we work to serve God and others, not ourselves—is foundational to a faithful witness, regardless of the specific work to which He has called us. Participants can purchase the book, though it is not necessary for class participation. Financial help with the purchase of the book is available. Chapter 1 will be covered in week one.
This class equips parents and those supporting them (friends, family, teachers, group leaders) with a gospel-centered perspective on parenting and disciple-making. We follow Paul David Tripp’s book Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles that Can Radically Change Your Family, which emphasizes that in our discipleship of children, we need God’s grace more than we need the latest tips and techniques. Participants can purchase the book, though it will not be necessary for class participation. Financial help with the purchase of the book is available.
Tech-Wise Christianity: Biblical Perspective for a Digital Age
This class explores what the Bible has to say about technology so that we can both understand what it is and use it personally to honor God. We focus our applications on our smartphones, considering 12 ways that this revolutionary technology is changing us and, in response, seek to develop wise, healthy habits for ourselves and our families that maximize benefits and blessings and avoid unhealthy pitfalls.
