Jim Yoder | Room 109
The book of Jonah is more than a fish story! Its 48 verses can be leisurely read in less than ten minutes. But it is dense with insights into the nature of prophecy, the prophet, the city, the casting of lots, the power of prayer, the sovereignty of God, and the immeasurable results of God-directed evangelism. So, we hope to have some stimulating discussions, much of which will resonate with our own times.
Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers
Matt Bender, Andy & Amber Stites, and Clint Van't Land | Room 111
Would you like to grow in your knowledge and understanding of who Jesus is—not just what He has done, but who is He, what is most natural to Him, what is His heart toward sinners, toward us? Would you like to invigorate your worship and increase your awe of and devotion to Jesus by beholding Him and becoming more like Him? We will strive to do this in our 8 weeks together as we read, reflect, and discuss Dane Ortlund’s book, Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers.
Why Christians Need to Talk about Virtues in Church and Home
Ben Burkholder | Room 112
Is moral life more about doing the right things or about becoming the right kind of people? In this class, we will explore the rich history of virtue from a Christian perspective, especially regarding character growth by means of God’s grace. Most importantly, we will discuss what this means for how we personally grow as individuals and parent our children toward being people of character.
