Fall Quarter 2019 (August 18th to November 24th)
Here is a brief description of our Fall quarter class offerings.
Concise Theology, by J.I. Packer
Theology matters! This book by one of the premier theologians of Christianity uses “layman’s language” to explain nearly 100 major Christian beliefs, all from a reformed perspective. If you have questions about what our confessional church believes, this is the class for you. Your questions will be welcome. Taught by Greg Janos, Todd Patterson, and Mark Gilzean.
This class should be considered an “Introduction to GriefShare.” The full GriefShare experience will begin in January. The purpose of this S.S. introduction is to identify those in our church that could either benefit from attending the program and/or those that may want to help facilitate this ministry at our church. Each week will be a “stand-alone” session.
GriefShare is a biblical, Christ-centered grief support ministry. GriefShare videos and materials help group members apply biblical principles to the healing process after the death of a loved one. Bob and Lori Burgess will be leading the Session-approved program to help participants see how the gospel can bring hope and restoration to those who are grieving.

The YFF will be studying the Letter of James this fall, with a plan to finish before Christmas. James is a very practical book, which gives us a picture of what authentic faith looks like. The class will led by various members and is usually discussion oriented. Visitors are always welcome.
