September through November 2017
Sundays 9:45-10:45 a.m.
Taught by Elders
We believe that Making Disciples is God’s primary purpose for Faith Church. If you are interested in learning more about Faith Church and how we are fulfilling that purpose, we would like to invite you to attend this Encounters Class. This class provides an opportunity to understand our beliefs and how these beliefs are carried out through the various ministries of Faith. Of course, we will also talk about how we want to come alongside you in your journey as a disciple of Christ. Towards the end of the class, we will provide an opportunity to discuss the possibility of joining Faith – but, know that joining is not a requirement of those who attend the class.
How Should We Then Live
Taught by Chris Jones and Cory Touard
In this brilliant book, Francis Schaeffer analyzed the reasons for modern society's state of affairs and presented the only viable alternative: living by the Christian ethic, acceptance of God's revelation, and total affirmation of the Bible's morals, values, and meaning. Chris and Cory will help us explore why after 41 years from when this was first published the thought behind the book is relative and practical for Christians today. We will consider how our thinking and beliefs must be based on God’s Word and how Christian thinking should be evident in how we live. Come and explore living with us.
The Book of Acts
Taught by John Harvey and Cameron Ramsey
What Jesus began to do and teach during his ministry, the Holy Spirit continues to do and teach through his Church. The book of Acts traces the growth of the new Christian movement as it spreads geographically from Jerusalem to Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth. It also traces the way the movement crosses cultural barriers from Hebrew-speaking Jews, to Greek-speaking Jews, to Samaritans, and to Gentiles. Along the way, the Church experiences its first evangelistic event, its first opposition, its first revival, its first benevolence, its first problem, the launch of its first mercy ministry team, its first martyr, its first persecution, and the launch of its first missionary team. In this class, you will also consider what principles and practices from the first-century church apply to the twenty-first-century church. Come and learn.
