Wednesday Night Classes

Classes for all ages, Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.

Getting to the Heart of Parenting—A Video Series with Paul Tripp
Ana & Jerrod Crawford (Adult 1–2)—Moms and dads of kiddos ages 0 to 18, come and join us for this ten-week video and discussion class! 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 Christian author, 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. Come and learn how to become an instrument of heart-changing grace in the lives of your children!

City on a Hill—A Video Series with Matt Chandler
Wes Crawford (Adult 6–7)— God saves people from all walks of life, but He doesn’t just save us. He saves us into a body of believers called the Church. God is using His Church to spread the gospel, as we are called to be the salt and light of the world. To live out this calling, we must allow the gospel to change and shape every aspect of our lives. Join us on Wednesday nights, beginning February 28 as we listen to Matt Chandler discuss the City on a Hill.

Spiritual Disciplines
Various Teachers (Library)—We invite you into a deeper relationship with God and community through practices that enhance awareness and intimacy with the divine. We will meet in the library every other week starting tonight.
