Winter Term Classes

Hezekiah – Faith in Desperate Times
Wednesdays, January 10 – 24, 7:00pm  (3 weeks)
Instructor:  Jason Hensley

Do you ever feel overwhelmed?  Do you ever feel that God is pushing you further than you can handle?  Hezekiah was a king who lived centuries and centuries ago––but God worked with him just as He works with us. Hezekiah was tested, pushed, and challenged by the God whom he loved. Yet amazingly, Hezekiah emerged from these harrowing experiences even more faithful and more humble. What was his secret?  Join us as we consider how to overcome challenges in faith, learning important lessons from this remarkable man.

Forgiveness – Doing the Unthinkable
Thursdays, January 11 – February 8, 7:00pm (5 weeks)
Instructor:  Jeff Gelineau

Forgiveness is the hardest thing to do. It’s clearly also something that God wants us to do. But, how do you do it? Frankly, not very many of us have much experience with truly forgiving. God has developed a process for us, and it’s fairly simple to learn but not so simple to apply. Join us for some life-changing insights into this difficult but necessary aspect of healthy relationships.

  • Learning to Forgive
  • What Forgiveness Is
  • Forgiving Others
  • Judging
  • Forgiving Yourself
