The Marriage Course
When: Monday Nights from 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Dates: February 20th - April 10th
Costs: $25 per couple for the Workbook
Leaders: Brian & Sandy Hays
Today we are facing a global crisis when it comes to families. Marriages are under more pressure than ever. Many children are growing up without experiencing the security of their parents' love and commitment to each other—and consequently are finding it harder to receive God's unconditional love. There is an urgent need to invest in marriage and family life, for strong societies are built on strong families, and strong families are built on strong marriages.
This course was developed by Nicky and Sila Lee (Alpha Course) and includes talks from experts including Dr. Gray Chapman, Dr. Henry Cloud, and Dr. Sue Johnson on topics such as money, sex, love languages, conflict resolution, healthy boundaries, and building connections.
When: 7 weeks, starting end of February
Dates: Either Monday nights at 6:30pm or Tuesday Mornings at 10am
Leader: Alex Rowan
Everyone has a theology. The question is this: Is your theology good theology? This is an important question, because your beliefs about God and about the World shape everything about the way you live and how you relate to those around you. This means that theology is deeply practical for Christian living. The word “theology” is derived from two Greek words: Theos (God) and logos (speech or reason). So in its simplest terms theology is rational discussion about God. It has been described as "the study or science of God and his relationship to man and the world." And we live in a time and place where good Theology is needed more than ever for Christians to know God and represent him well to the world.
If you would like to better understand some core Theological teachings of the Christian faith—such as the doctrines of the Trinity, Christology, the Church, Salvation, and the Calvinism/Arminianism debate, join Pastor Alex Rowan as he opens the scriptures to help us see what God has in mind and in store for us. This 8 week course will cover such topics and more!
