Discipleship for Adults, Students, and Children
Room: Fellowship Hall Leader: Pastor Bob Palmer
Prayer lies at the root of our walk with God. It is a “…slender nerve that moves the muscle of omnipotence.” As in every activity of the believer’s life, our Savior is God’s final word…God’s perfect word. It is, therefore, His pre-eminent message and ministry that will be the focus of our first four studies. Lessons five to twelve will center on a number of God’s Old Testament servants. The scope of their communion with God is one that should make a dramatic difference in our 21st Century pilgrimage.
Room: FH 212 Leader: Sharon Poole
Theological Training for Leaders
Leadership in the church of Jesus Christ is not to be taken lightly. Spiritual, emotional, and relational maturity are all necessary requirements. But in addition to these, teaching or leading God’s people requires that leaders also possess an increasing measure of theological maturity. This class is designed to meet that need.
Over the course of 10 weeks, we will examine some of the foundational doctrines of our faith as written in the Bible and in our confessional standard, The Westminster Confession of Faith. In addition to this, we will discuss how we understand and teach these truths at Covenant Church. Followers of Christ who invest in this course will come away with a deeper understanding of Scripture, a greater ability to explain our core doctrines, and hopefully with a more theologically robust passion for Christ and his church. The course is open to men and women who currently teach or serve in a leadership capacity or who aspire to do so. There is a $35 fee for the class associated with the required books and materials. Additionally, participants are expected to spend approximately four hours each week outside of class time in preparation for class discussions. Westminister Confession of Faith, The Five Points of Calvinism, and A Summary of Christian Doctrine. Materials available for purchase at the first class.
