“How to Love Your Family” (Nancy Yang; September 19, 26 and October 3)
A healthy family leads to a healthy community life. Utilizing a biblical framework of Family Systems Theory, we will explore our past family dynamics to understand the way we interact with our family members today. We will learn practical skills to communicate our feelings, forgive much, and love our families to better love our community.
“The Image of God: the Crown of Creation” (Paul Yu; October 10, 17, 24)
This class seeks to answer one of life’s ultimate questions, “What does it mean to be human?” It is only through a biblical-theological lens that we are able to understand our core identity as an image bearer of the triune God. This class will provide an introduction to the fascinating topic of the image of God by unpacking how the image is first constituted at creation, ruined by the Fall, and redeemed in Christ. We will also broadly demonstrate how the image of God is central and fundamental in navigating key contemporary conversations like race, abortion, gender issues, etc.
“Ears to Hear: Sound, Silence, and the Christian Life” (Eddie Pyun; October 31, November 7, 14)
He who has an ear, let him hear! The Bible is full of commands to hear and to listen—but how often do we think about how we can use our hearing to the glory of God? In this class, we’ll think biblically and practically as we reflect together on the topics of sound and silence. We’ll aim to become better and more intentional listeners to our God, to one another, and to God’s world around us—whether in the commotion of life or in the still and quiet.
“Secrets Thoughts of the Unlikely Person” (Jenny Picard; November 21, 28)
Have you ever noticed that sometimes it is the most “unlikely person” who turns out to suffer a great deal? Suffering looks very different for everyone but sadly within the church, too many people walk through it alone while putting on smiles for others to see. We often feel it’s inappropriate or unacceptable as Christians to feel this way. Yet Scripture points us to the spiritual warfare and the encouragement from Christ that is at work in his people. In this class we will dive into the truths of God’s Word concerning the “unlikely person” and the brothers and sisters in Christ who desire to help.
“Foundations for Defending Your Faith” (Ben Picard; December 5, 12, 19)
It is often believed that defending the Christian faith is reserved only for trained theologians. And we’ve certainly felt that “untrained” feeling when sharing the truths of the gospel. Yet Scripture teaches us that all Christians should be ready to give a defense for their hope in Christ. This class will equip us with the knowledge and tools required to defend our faith with humility, love, and confidence squarely centered on the triune God and his Word.
