Session 2 - September 16 - December 9
God and Government (Ryan Krell)
This CLC class will focus on God’s relationship to government throughout Biblical history, starting with a discussion of government forms from the Old Testament through the early church. The class will also include a discussion of the Christian’s role in current political systems (i.e. the United States), and will Biblically examine issues including the kingdom of God, the Christian’s role as legislator, the separation of church and state, civil disobedience, and the application of being “in subjection to the governing authorities.” (Rom. 13:1)
How People Change (Pastor Dave Trepanier)
Paul said in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” In How People Change, Dave Trepanier will take the class through a study on biblical sanctification. The class will look closely at what the Bible teaches concerning the nature and composition of man, what happens to a person at salvation, how sanctification happens, and what sanctification looks like in every day life. Can people really change? The Bible’s answer is a resounding yes.
Shepherding in the Family (Andy Hixon)
Are you a parent? Do you feel like you have it all together when it comes to raising your kids to be responsible, compassionate and Spirit filled followers of Christ? You’re not alone if you struggle with making that a reality. Andy Hixon will lead us as we discuss Biblical principles that we can use to help our children be internally motivated instead of relying on external pressure. God has a wonderful plan for each of our kids, and we want each of you to be equipped to move them in that direction.
