Sunday Night Life

We realize that disciples are made in the context of biblical community where people connect to God’s Word and to each other. Sunday Night Life is one of our disciple-making venues on campus where each family member can engage in faith-building activities and fellowship on Sunday evenings. The classes and programs that make up Sunday Night Life encourage love for God, love for others and love for a lost world. Please check out the opportunities available to people in our church and community through Sunday Night Life:

For All Adults

Grasping God’s Word: A Hands-on Approach to Reading, Interpreting and Applying the Bible 
Led by:      David Ivey
Day/Time: Sundays, 5:30 to 7:00 pm 
Start Date: Sunday, September 10
Length:      7 weeks 
Location:   Crossroad, Room E11

Just as a rock climber’s handhold enables him to master the mountain, a firm grasp on God’s Word empowers us to traverse the challenging, risky slopes of life. Grasping God’s Word help men and women get a grip on the solid rock of Scriptures – how to read it, how to interpret it, and how to apply it. This class will follow along with the text book, Grasping God’s Word, as it progresses through these five sections: 

1. How to Read the Book
2. Contexts – Now and Then
3. Meaning and Application 
4. The Interpretive Journey – New Testament 
5. The Interpretive Journey – Old Testament 
We hope you’ll join us this Fall as we dive into learning to read and understand God’s Word!

The Book of Titus by Chip Ingram

Day/Time: Sunday, 5:30-7:00pm
Start Date: September 10
Length:      8 weeks

In this study, Chip Ingram challenges us to display the gospel in our lives through doing good. We do good works not to earn God’s favor, but as a result of God’s favor. When the gospel has truly taken root in our lives, it produces the fruit of godliness. As we pass these things on to future generations, the Church stands in bright contrast to the darkness of the world.
