Spring Term Classes

So You Think You Know the Apostle Paul?

Wednesdays, Apr 3 – May 1, 7:00 pm (5 weeks)

As a kid in Sunday school, lessons on the Apostle Paul were frequent… and then frequently forgotten. Classes on “Saul” / “Paul” didn’t stick because they didn’t affect me in a way that made me understand who he was (and what he went through). They weren’t personalized. The stories were just words on a page… blah blah blah. I hope this class changes your thoughts on the biblical account of this extraordinary man, and as a result… changes you. It would be impossible in 5 classes to cover his entire life and all he went through, so this class will focus on these 5 items:

  • I Once Was Blind
  • A Fresh Start
  • Missionary Monotony?
  • On Trial
  • In the Boat With Paul

Jesus: Real or Fraud  

Thursdays, Apr 4 – May 2, 7:00 pm (5 weeks)

No person in history has impacted our world as much as Jesus of Nazareth.  Who was he? What does history have to say about him? How reliable is the claim that he rose from the dead?  If he did rise, what are the consequences? How does struggling with these issues impact my life in the here and now?  Join us as we explore these contrasts:

  • Fantasy or History
  • Dead or Alive
  • Sand or Rock
  • Reject or Receive
  • Strength in Weakness
