Please click here for a map/layout of the Community Life Center and where most of the classrooms are located. The Senior Adults and Young Seniors meet in the Worship Center.
Senior Adults "Coram Deo"
Location: Worship Center, Room 201 (Choir Room)
Topic: The Righteousness of God
Teacher: Chris Williams, RE
“Oh the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God!” Paul wrote this in the book of Romans, after spending eleven chapters explaining in detail how God saves sinners. Reflecting back on this amazing salvation plan, he offers this word of praise. Our study will unpack his explanation chapter by chapter so we may join with his voice in praising our Redeeming God. We invite you to join us as we journey through this great epistle.
Location: Worship Center, Room 211
Topic: Meeting Jesus at the Feast: Israel's Festivals and the Gospel
Teacher: Bob Medeiros
The Bible tells the unique story of the history of God's redemption, focusing on the central character, Jesus. It was difficult for the ancient people of Israel to put their faith and hope in a Messiah who would not make His appearance for more than a thousand years, so God gave them a series of feasts that provided a hint of the One who was coming. Join us as we fellowship and together consider the seven feasts God gave Israel with the goal of meeting Jesus in the feast.
Community: Parents of college-age students
Location: Community Life Center (CLC), Rooms 5 & 6
Topic: Heroes of the Reformation: Exploring the Lives of Reformers Who Changed History
Teacher: Paul Engle, TE
Have you ever wondered how our Protestant faith got its start and who were the influential men God used to change the world? You are invited to join us for a stimulating study to get acquainted with some of the leading heroes of the Protestant Reformation as we approach the 500th anniversary. We will look at the lives, times, and teachings of Calvin, Luther, Zwingli, Hus, Knox, Tyndale, and others. Our teacher Paul Engle is a seasoned Teaching Elder in the PCA and has traveled to Reformation sites so will use photographs and other visuals to illustrate this biographical study.
Community: Parents of middle school and high school students
Location: Community Life Center (CLC) Chapel
Topic: The Whole Story of the Bible in 16 Verses
Teacher: Pastor Brian Peterson
Student Families will be going through the book The Whole Story of the Bible in 16 Verses by Chris Bruno. This book captures the plotline of the Bible and highlights sixteen key Bible verses that stand as “turning points” in the biblical storyline — enabling us to see God’s incredible plan to redeem His people and glorify His name from Genesis to Revelation. Whether it’s exploring the creation of humanity, the establishment of the covenants, or the coming of the Messiah, this book will help Christians see how God’s Word tells a single story about His sovereignty, glory, and grace.
Location: Community Life Center (CLC), Rooms 1 & 2
Teachers: Elders from the Young Families community
Is there a better book in the Bible that invites us to plumb the depths of the freedom that has been granted us in Christ than the book of Galatians? We would all be hard pressed to find a better one! Your Young Families' elders will be leading the community through a study of Paul’s letter that we might better live – individually and communally – as those set free.
Community: Young singles & newly married
Location: Community Life Center (CLC), Rooms 3 & 4
Topic: The Christian Life and the Local Church
Teacher: Pastor Dave Baxter
Why do I have to go? I worship just as well on the trail or in a park. I listen to a podcast of my favorite preacher every day on my commute to work. Is it really necessary to join? I’m a Christian, isn’t that enough? What’s wrong with just being a regular church attender? Why are they are always asking for more volunteers — or more money? Aren’t there more effective ministries out there for serving my community and reaching unbelievers? And don’t all these different churches just reflect the kind of division in the body of Christ that Jesus prayed against in the upper room? Why should I join just one? Or more specifically – why should I join this one? These are the all good questions. Many of us have asked them – at least some of them – at some point. This summer we will tackle these questions and more as we consider the priority of the local church and its role in our lives.
Community: College age
Location: Community Life Center (CLC)
Topic: The Character of David
Teachers: Church members
This summer 18|22 will study the character of David. You can expect to learn from a variety of teachers within our church about how our lives relate to the very ordinary man of David. We will learn more specifically about what it means to mature as a Christian, wrestle with sin, and depend on God in trying circumstances.
Community: High school and middle school (combining for the summer)
Location: Youth Center (lower level of CLC)
