At Cityview, we believe in the importance of lifelong learning.

We provide a variety of classes during our Explore Hour (Sundays at 9a) that will help enrich your understanding of the faith. These classes promote spiritual growth, theological and biblical insight, and ministry development, all of which will help you to become a mature and equipped follower of Christ.

We offer certain classes regularly, such as our Membership and Spiritual Gifts classes. We also offer a variety of electives, typically offering one class each quarter in these five tracks:

Jesus, Continued… (Tyrannus), led by Joe Dwyer, Fellowship Hall ♦ Sept 15-Nov 3

Why do so many of us think of Christianity as a lifestyle to which we conform, rather than a God with whom we commune? Jesus gave His disciples the audacious promise that it was to their advantage that He go back to heaven because the Holy Spirit could then come to live inside of them. How many of us consider our connection to the Holy Spirit so strong and so real that we would call his presence in us better than Jesus beside us? Open to all. Video Introduction

Hosea (Berea), led by Dave Fox, Rm. 204 ♦ Sept 15-Nov 3

The book of Hosea is a love song whose singer is God. He sings of a love that doesn’t leave us hurt or disappointed, because it is his own love for his people. His love song is surprising, raw, emotional, at times uncomfortable, but always compelling. This study will thrill you with the wonder of God’s love. Open to all.

Tactics (Areopagus), led by Gary Van Zandbergen, Rm. 205 ♦ Sept 15-Nov 3

This class teaches you how to maneuver comfortably and graciously as you share your faith with others. Learn how to navigate the mind fields, stop challengers in their tracks, turn the table and—most importantly—get people thinking about Jesus. Open to all.

Study Mark through Prayer & P.R.A.I.S.E (Berea), led by Nancy Russell, Rm. 206 ♦ Sept 15-May 31

This women’s study provides an opportunity to walk with Jesus as we join his disciples in listening to Jesus, watching what he does, seeing his impact on the lives of others,and understanding what is important to him. This method of study allows each woman to interact with God during the week over a small portion of scripture. Then, we come back together to share what we’ve learned and pray for each other. Open to all women 18+.
