A continuation of the theologically and philosophically profound account of His life, death, and resurrection in the New Testament.

"Messy Grace and Beyond"
Teachers: Doreen Reysen, Rebecca Spangler | January 9 - May 29 | C-207 (Upstairs behind MPC)
Very few issues in Christianity are as divisive as the acceptance of the LGBT community in the church. Messy Grace shows us that Jesus' command to "love your neighbor as yourself" doesn't have an exception clause for a gay "neighbor" - or for that matter, any other "neighbor" we might find it hard to relate to. Jesus was able to love these people, and yet still hold on to His beliefs, and so can you.
Materials: Book Fee: $10 (optional book)

"James - Faith/Works"
Teacher: Rob Rogers | January 9 - April 10 | Annex E-8
This study examines the core message of James: the relationship between faith and works. In our own ability, we cannot stand in the face of adversity. Without faith, we could never find the strength to trust God. We would never be able to see above the trials we meet and to keep our eyes focused on the King while counting our trials as joy. This is the essence of James. We do not work to be saved; we work because we are saved. Faith apart from works can never be sustained.
Materials: Book Fee: $13
