Here and Now...Then and There: A Lecture Series on Revelation
Each week the class will discuss reflections on weekly homework assignments and view a 1 hour lesson from Beth Moore. The goal in tackling this final and somewhat mysterious book of Scripture is to explore various interpretations of scholars and to see, on Beth’s words, how “God is as deliberate about what He doesn’t tell us as what He does.” Most of all this study will enlarge the love of God in your hearts and increase the sense of urgency in sharing gospel truth with the lost. This group will meet for 12 weeks.

Sent: Living the Missional Nature of the Church
Throughout history, God has always been a sender. After all, He sent us His Son, who in turn sends us. With Sent: Living the Missional Nature of the Church, Ed Stetzer issues a call to a new kind of missional living, one that engages culture, enables Christians to live in the world while not being of the world, and motivates the purposeful sharing of the story of Christ.
Uncover the meaning of missional and explore where you fit into the overall purpose of the church. This class will be led by Hayward Armstrong and will meet on Sunday Nights from 5:00-7:00 on the 4th floor of the main building at Walnut Street. The class will last 5-7 weeks and will begin on Sunday February 6th.
