TUESDAY

Mining God’s Word

6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
June 5 – August 7
Instructor: JD Hettema
Asst. Instructor: Ryan Lagerstrom
Cost: $25

The course Mining God’s Word is an introduction to an inductive study of the Bible. Inductive study consists of careful observation of the text leading to sound interpretation and appropriate application. Students will learn study strategies, principles of interpretation, and principles of application throughout the course and apply them to the book of Philippians. Although the book of Philippians will serve as the primary “training grounds,” the course aims at teaching study skills that are applicable to the entire Bible. The course also aims at cultivating inductive Bible study as a lifelong habit.


Gospel Fluency

6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
June 5 – August 7
Instructors: Bob Nyquist & Ebe Puplampu
Asst. Instructor: Jeff Dagerath
Cost: $30

Even if they want to, many Christians find it hard to talk to others about Jesus. Is it possible this difficulty is because we’re trying to speak a language we haven’t actually spent time practicing? Is it possible we have neglected to understand for ourselves how the good news of Jesus impacts every facet of our own lives?

To become fluent in a new language, you must immerse yourself in it and commit to practicing it, over and over again. You must use it everyday until you actually start to think about life through it. Becoming fluent in the gospel happens the same way—after believing it, we have to intentionally rehearse it (to ourselves and to others) and immerse ourselves in its truths. Only then will we start to see how everything in our lives, from the mundane to the magnificent, is transformed by the hope of the gospel.

THURSDAY

Introduction to Phrasing

6:30 pm –8:30 pm
June 7 – August 9
Instructor: JD Hettema
Asst. Instructor: Matt Schoepf & Kevin Kress
Cost: $18

Phrasing is a course that serves to introduce the concept of Bible Phrasing by walking through the text of the book of Romans. Students will learn all of the facets of phrasing and draw theological insights from Romans. Phrasing is an excellent tool for determining a biblical author’s main point and also how he supports it. The class is designed for interested lay-people. A knowledge of grammar is not required, but we will discuss grammatical parts of the text that especially shed light on Paul’s argument throughout.


Financial Peace (FPU)

6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
June 7 – August 9
Instructor: Jacob & Ashley League
Cost: $135

Financial Peace University is a nine-lesson, money-management class taught by America's most trusted financial guru, Dave Ramsey. Dave and his teaching team will walk you through the basics of budgeting, dumping debt, planning for the future, and much more.


Parenting Class

6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
June 7 – August 9
Instructor: Steve & Katie DuBranksy
Asst. Instructors: Shawn & Kelly Hurley
Cost: $10

Parenting is hard, but there are few things in life that rise to this level of importance. God has chosen parents to be primary instruments in the shaping of a human soul.

So often we get it wrong by using power to get our children to behave in certain ways. We establish laws and then play the role of police officer and judge. As Paul Tripp explains, parenting is so much deeper than rules and regulations. A biblical view teaches that parenting is all about the exposure and change of a child's heart. Permanent behavioral change only occurs when the heart of a person is changed by grace. Getting to the Heart of Parenting covers principles of grace for children 0-5, 6-12, and 13-18.

Learn how to become an instrument of heart-changing grace in the lives of your children.
