Gospel of Mark|Sanctuary|John Janney
Speaking about Jesus, “…Renan tells us that He was the greatest religious genius who ever lived, or probably ever shall live. Mill tells us that religion cannot be said to have made a bad choice in pitching on this Man as the ideal representative and guide of humanity. And Strauss thinks that we know enough of Him to assert that His consciousness was unclouded by the memory of any sin.” [George A. Chadwick, “The Gospel According to St. Mark,” The Expositor’s Bible IV edited by W. Robertson Nicoll, (Hartford, CT: The S. S. Scranton Company, 1908), p. 931] Yet each of these men was an unbeliever and skeptic.
What is there about our Lord that draws such praise even from those who refused to trust in Him? Why did they admire Him? How can you show His winsomeness in ways that will lead your children and your lost friend to look to Him?
For those purposes there is no better book than the Gospel of Mark, written by an intimate friend of Peter, recalling the preaching of great Apostle as he explained to the lost the One who could bring them home to God winning many to Christ. This class on Mark’s Gospel can help you do the same and help you know Christ even better yourself.
The Christian Life According to Luther|Overflow|Pastor Grossman
This October marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, the largest revival of Christianity since the birth of the Christian Church. God used Martin Luther, a German monk, priest, and university professor, to bring the gospel back to the people. Join us as we survey the many ways which Luther brought the church back to the Bible, to justification by faith, to the true sacraments, to the priesthood of every believer, to the Christian family to serve God and our neighbors, through our vocation. Luther’s ideas are for today!
Marriage Matters|Classroom 2|Bryon Kauffman & Greg Fairbanks
Our society would have us believe that marriage, certainly the particulars of marriage, don’t matter much. It doesn’t really matter if you get married, it doesn’t matter who you marry, it doesn’t really matter if you stay married and it doesn’t even matter what the definition of marriage is. As Christians, we believe that our marriages matter very much and they certainly matter to God. Because our marriages matter to God it is important that He be an active part of them…even the most ordinary moments which are exactly what our marriages are comprised of….lots of seemingly ordinary moments. This class is for married couples of all ages and will include a fair amount of discussion.
