WORSHIP II: BIBLICAL FOUNDATIONS OF WORSHIP Tuesdays, 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. starting Jan 6 Taught by Holly Benner What do you give a God who has everything? When the Trinity created this earth, they had in mind an intentional design for what worship would be like for us in relationship with Him. Before sin entered the scene, worship and relationship took on a different form than what we see laid out for us in the rest of Scripture. Sin changed everything and after Jesus' death and resurrection, love & grace changed everything once again. This class will seek out the story of worship as it unfolds throughout the Old & New Testament to find God's original intention and how it applies to our lives today.
COFFEE AND APOLOGETICS Wednesdays, 9:30 - 11 a.m. Starting Jan 14 Taught by John Piippo "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect." - 1 Peter 3:15
