Electives for September 2nd – November 25

  • Acts | Pastor LeTowt | Sanctuary

    Just before Christ ascended back to heaven, he gave his small group of followers a mission.  The book of Acts is the story of these ordinary people on a mission to spread the gospel that turned the world upside down.  It is the story of the early church: what it believed, how it grew, and the people who were transformed.  Today we join this story as lives continue to be changed by the very same gospel.

  • Basic Christianity | Pastor Grossman | Overflow

    This class will be a study of the classic evangelistic book by John R. W, Stott entitled Basic Christianity. Each student will receive a free copy of the book and each week we will read a chapter and discuss it.
    After an introductory lesson on the amazing career of this twentieth century giant of evangelicalism, we will study chapters on Who Christ Is, What We Need, What Christ Has Done, and How to Respond. The book is a summary of Stott’s hundreds of lectures to skeptical
    students on college campuses all over the world. At the end of the course, every student that completes the reading will receive a
    second copy of the book to give to a friend who needs the Lord. Join us for this practical course on understanding and sharing our faith!

  • Peacemaking | Dottie Haines | Fellowship Hall

    Based on The Peacemaker: A Biblical Guide to Resolving Personal Conflict by Ken Sande

    Topics include:

    The foundation for peace, Growing in grace, Conflict resolution God’s way, and Lasting peace

    “Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all.” –II Thessalonians 3:16

    Although conflict is painful, the gospel message of reconciliation is our mandate to show Christ to the world. Instead of considering
    conflicts as wrong or damaging, they provide opportunities for us to glorify God, serve others and grow to be like Christ by prayerfully and humbly striving to be reconciled “inasmuch as it depends on me”.

Musical selections range from Contemporary Christian to Spirituals to the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah. Choir season typically runs from Labor Day to Memorial Day and usually involves singing during the Worship Service two or three times per month.

Prayer Meeting

Every Wednesday evening from 6:15 PM to 7:15 PM, a prayer meeting is conducted for adults. Following songtime and a brief devotional from the Bible, prayer is offered in individual, small group, and corporate settings. Each week, a different focus for prayer is emphasized such as local and national political concerns, world missions, various ministries and outreaches of the church, needs of individuals and families within the congregation, or Christians persecuted around the world.
