WEDNESDAYS - FEBRUARY 1

LEADERS AND THE EARLY CHURCH*     REGISTER NOW
6:45 PM • Weekly •  $75 material cost • *SUGGESTED PREREQUISITE: ACTS

There is a lot of debate in the church world today regarding the topic of church leadership. What are the biblical offices? What are the roles and functions of church leaders? What is the breadth of a spiritual leader's authority? This class will look at how the first century church was structured and the roles and responsibilities of those early church leaders.

 

SATURDAYS - FEBRUARY 4

ACTS     REGISTER NOW
7:30 AM • Weekly • $75 material cost

The objective of this course is to determine the fundamental biblical principles that drive the mission of the church. As the book of Acts unfolds, you will begin to form convictions about the role of the church in missions, and uncover a strategy that was repeated in the early church's fulfillment of the Great Commission. The larger question remains, are these convictions and strategies for us today?

Women of the Word (FOR WOMEN)     REGISTER NOW

Today, the gospel and teachings are not being picked up by young people.

This study will look at Passing on Your Beliefs (Series 2 of BILD's First Principles Series) as well as the Scriptures to draw out the foundational principles for passing on your beliefs to the next generation in your home.

Drawing on the apostle Paul's letters to Timothy and Titus, Dr. Getz explains 20 attributes of a godly man in his book, The Measure of a Man. Men will gain encouragement for who they can be in Christ as fathers, husbands, and mentors to other men; and how to live according to God's direction faithfully, lovingly, and spiritually. True masculinity is not measured by the strength of a man but rather by biblical guidelines.

MEN OF HONOR (FOR MEN)     REGISTER NOW
6:45 PM • BI-WEEKLY • $10 material cost

Why does Bill lose his temper at his wife? Why does she respond by having a third glass of wine every night to dull her pain? Why is their daughter so deeply involved in sinful and shameful behavior that never delivers what she is looking for? The reason is the way they think. Beyond behaviors and deeper than attitudes, thinking determines outcomes more than anything else. If you repeatedly find yourself in places where you don’t want to go, it’s your thinking that’s leading you there. God offers your only hope for victory over disposition, dysfunction, double mindedness, and every mental stronghold. With Him you can think differently.
