FALL 2017 EQUIP
ESSENTIAL CHRISTIAN DOCTRINES
STARTS Sept. 24 // SUNDAYS 9AM // RM 120
This is an 8 week class that will attempt to systematically present what the apostle Paul called "the whole counsel of God" (Acts 20:27). We will study biblical topics by examining particular Bible passages and selected readings through Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology, and also through interacting with questions each week in a student workbook. The aim of the class will be to help students better understand Essential Christian Doctrines including: God's work in the Christian life, the purposes and structure of Christ's church, understanding spiritual gifts, the second coming of Christ and what the Scriptures teach about heaven & hell.
SUPPLIES: Bible, workbook (given the first week of class), Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology (you can find this book on Amazon or at christianbook.com)

THE PROMISED ONE: SEEING JESUS IN GENESIS
STARTS Sept. 24 // SUNDAYS 5PM // CHILDCARE AVAILABLE
After the resurrection, when Jesus used Scripture to explain who He was and why He came, where did he start? In the Old Testament. And this is where Nancy Guthrie's ten-week study, The Promised One: Seeing Jesus in Genesis, beings to look for Christ, finding him in the people, promises, and patterns of the book of Genesis. The Promised One will help you newly discover Jesus in the foreshadows of the Old Testament, apply the gospel found in Genesis to issues such as shame, fear, and the desire for security and significance, and develop your longing for what is ahead when the world is once again made new. Join the women of C3 as we gain a fresh perspective on the book of Genesis, a broader understanding of Jesus as the fulfillment of Scripture, and much more! This study utilizes videos & faciliated discussion time.
