Gospel Shaped Mercy from the Gospel Shaped Church (Tyrannus) ♦ May 6 – June 17

Christians have rightly been suspicious of churches that give themselves to political and social campaigns—and seem to lose focus on the gospel at the same time. Explore how a right understanding of the gospel moves us towards ministries of mercy. This track stimulates discussion as to how this looks in everyday life and in our local church context. Click here to watch video. Open to all.

Christianity Explored (The Well) ♦ April 8 – May 20

The message at the heart of Christianity is pretty simple. What is Christianity? It’s all about one life, the life of Jesus, and it can be summed up in the answers to three questions: Who is Jesus? Why did Jesus come? What does it mean for us? Find out what it’s all about in our 7-week class. Click here to watch video. Open to all.

DiscoverMe (Tyrannus) ♦ May 27-June 17

God designed us all uniquely—different gifts, different passions, different personalities—to accomplish unique ministry opportunities. Discover who you are as you study what the Bible has to say about spiritual gifts and our ministry callings, understand your personality type, and identify your strengths—all with an aim to discovering how God would have you serve in his kingdom. Open to all. Some outside assignments will be required.

1,2 Corinthians (Berea) ♦ March 11 – June 3 (No class Easter, Apr 1)

The church has never been perfect. Only the Lord of the church is perfect, a truth that is abundantly clear in 1 and 2 Corinthians. Here we find the gospel in all of its glory and life with all its complexities. Paul wrote to a people who loved Christ but struggled with divisions of all kinds, manifold rebellion, and downright  immorality. When you read and study these two books, you are reminded that although Jesus is Lord of the church, there is no perfect church. Open to all.
