Spring 2017 Class Descriptions

 

Sunday Morning Courses – 10:15-11am

The Gospel of Mark – Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to be one of Jesus’ disciples – following Him, listening to His teaching, asking Him questions, observing His life, and helping Him in ministry? In this class, we will retrace Christ’s steps through the Gospel of Mark and learn many lessons along the way. And in the process, we will find that time spent with Jesus and the application of His truth to our hearts is life-changing. This class meets from January 15 through May 28 in CLC Room 204 and will be led by Mary-Evelyn Starnes.

Essential Virtues: Marks of the Christ-Centered Life – What are the marks of a truly mature Christian? The apostle Peter spoke of knowledge, self-control, endurance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love. We all aspire to these characteristics—but are they truly attainable? This course will help every believer see how they can embody these virtues—with God’s help. This class meets in CLC Room 208 from January 15 through May 28 and will be led by Eddie and Teri Capparucci.

Discussing Mere Christianity: Exploring the History, Meaning, and Relevance of C.S. Lewis’s Greatest BookMere Christianity by C.S. Lewis is one of the most read and beloved Christian books of all time. But seventy years later from when it was first delivered on radio, what relevance does it have to our world today? Host Eric Metaxas and a variety of Christian leaders−including Philip Yancey, Alister McGrath, Devin Brown, Paul McCusker, Douglas Gresham, and others−help us understand the timeless message of C. S. Lewis in fresh ways for a new generation.Meets from January 15 through May 28 in CLC Room 209 and will be led by Carolyn Waters.

 

 

Wednesday Night Courses (7-8pm)

Classes meet following the Fellowship Dinner from 6-7pm. Childcare is provided in Room 3.

The Pastor’s Study: Moving From “I Am” To “I Will” – OK, folks, it’s time to gear up. Have you been praying that God would prepare someone to be the new Senior Pastor? That’s great, but its only half the equation. We need to be getting ourselves ready, too. So that’s what we’re going to focus on in the Pastor’s study for Winter. In his book, I Will: 9 Traits of the Outwardly Focused Christian, Thom Rainer takes an uncomplicated, bold, and fresh look into what being a church member means in the 21st century. It’s more than just having our names on a roster. Rather, it “is an expression of a natural overflow of ministry that should take place because of our love of Christ and His church” (page 84). One word of caution: this is an intensely practical course for people seriously interested in activating their faith at Eastminster and in the world by becoming outwardly focused. Rainer unashamedly tackles difficult matters we often don’t want to discuss in the hope that we will emerge as partners in ministry. My hope is that those who take this course will emerge committed to partnering with the new Senior Pastor to build on our great foundation and take Eastminster to the next level. This class begins on January 18in CLC Room 209 and will be led by Dr. Tom Boone.
