COMMUNITY LIFE CENTER
Please click here for a map/layout of the Community Life Center and where each classroom is located. All classes, except the Senior Adults and Young Seniors have moved from their previous locations.
Location: Worship Center, Room 201 (Choir Room)
Topic: God Spoke in Times Past (continued)
Teacher: Pastor Bruce Creswell
For the winter quarter, we will finish our journey in
the Old Testament, looking at the last seven minor
prophets. We will consider each book: its history,
the key characters and events, and how they point
to Christ. Come join us on our journey as we travel
through to the end of the Old Testament.
Location: Worship Center, Room 211
Topic: In His Light We See Light
Teacher: Clifford Chin
We live in an ever changing environment where our
flesh, the world, and Satan are ever before us. God
calls us as believers to be in this world but not of
it… for this is not our home. So how are you doing?
The Christian life is so much about perspective: how
we see things, what we make of them, and how we
respond to them. How we see things governs how we
live our lives. This quarter, we will be exploring the
simple truth that “In His light we see light,” for “Jesus
is the True Light.” When we see things in the light of
Jesus, the Word, and His Spirit, amazing things happen.
As we journey to our heavenly home, God is at
work and there is nothing that enters our lives that is
not sovereignly in His kind and gracious hand.
Community: Parents of college-age students
Location: Community Life Center (CLC) Rooms 5 & 6
Teacher: Pastor Mike Miller
The Sojourner community will be exploring how the
Bible and the power of Christ reframe our lives by
connecting the Gospel to all of life. Especially considering
our vocational callings, we will study how
Christians should value the work God has called us to
and use it for His glory.
Community: Parents of middle school and high school students
Location: Community Life Center (CLC) Chapel
Topic:The Acts of the Apostles (continued)
Teacher: Pastor Brian Peterson
The book of Acts has long been a source of encouragement
and challenge to Christians. We see ourselves
in the early church’s struggles and successes. At
times the Lord brought them to soaring heights and
at others, discouraging valleys. More than that, they
lived at a time of massive cultural change. Yet they
were faithful to the God of their salvation, and thus
they thrived. This quarter, we will continue to study
this majestic book and learn from the early Christian
church how our lives are to reflect the glory of the
Gospel in a changing world that no longer accepts its
message. These are challenging days, but they are not
unique. The church has been here before. The Acts of
the Apostles will point us to the lessons that will carry
us into a new generation of biblical faithfulness.
Location: Community Life Center (CLC) Rooms 1 & 2
Topic: Prayers of the Apostle Paul (continued)
Teachers: Class rotation. Contact RE Wade Byrum or Deacon Adam Long
For the Christian, prayer is evidence of being born
again. Yet Martin Luther said of prayer, it is the
“hardest work of all.” Few of us would admit that our
prayer lives are where we want them to be. God certainly
knows that our prayer-hearts beat very slowly
at times. For the winter quarter, the Young Families
Sunday school community will continue to study the
prayers of the Apostle Paul. Whether it is the bounty
of God’s gifts in 1 Corinthians 1, the sweeping prayer
of Ephesians 1, the overflowing gratitude of Philippians
1, or the pointed hortatory prayer of Colossians 1,
we will ask the Lord to review and refashion our own
prayer lives so that they rise to the same kingdom
concerns. Please join us as we work together to be
men and women of faithful kingdom prayer.
Community: Young singles & newly married, college age
Location: Community Life Center (CLC) Rooms 3 & 4
Topic: Living Hope in Hard Times
Teacher: Pastor Dave Baxter
These are hard days – often threatening to consume
us with discouragement and fear. This winter quarter,
we will be looking at how we can live with hope in the
midst of hard times by remembering that God is always
at work, training us to see what He is doing, and
aligning our lives (and hopes) with His purposes.
Community: High School
Location: Youth Center (lower level of CLC)
Topic: Do You Know the One True God?
Teachers: Pastor Stewart Neely, Youth Staff
This winter, we will continue our walk through
the attributes of God, using John 17:3 as our key
verse. Each Sunday, there will be teaching on an
attribute of God following the outline provided in J.
I. Packer’s Knowing God. This curriculum will also
have an apologetic angle as we incorporate discussion
on opposition to the doctrines and attributes
we discuss. Our goal is to encourage our students to
deepen their knowledge of the One True God and
to be able to live as worshippers whose knowledge
shapes our convictions, feelings, and actions.
Community: Middle School
Location: Youth Center (lower level of CLC)
Topic: Being Faithful to Your Calling
Teachers: Pastor Andy Schuster, Youth Staff
Our middle school students continue to discuss
“Being Faithful to Your Calling.” We will explore
many different things that comprise our calling and
emphasize the truth that all Christians are called to
be faithful to what God has assigned to us in our life.
