    College Class: The Essentials

    Chris & Liz Lawson (Terrace Room)

    Whether we’re new to the Christian faith or we’ve been walking with God for years, grounding ourselves in the essential elements of our faith is critical to our spiritual growth. Join us in this 10-part series as we take a closer look at the foundational elements and practices of the Christian faith such as the doctrine of the Trintiy, our assurance of salvation, and the role of the Holy Spirit in our lives.


    Genesis

    Mary Harvey, Norm Graf (Common Room)

    Genesis narrates incredible stories involving God at work in the lives of his people. Moses’s first book seeks to educate God’s people concerning foundational ideas and beliefs that were vital for God’s people to know and remember. Through these stories, Moses presents profound truths of God’s character, promises, presence, and his covenant with his people that can vitally affect our faith today.
