Current Class

The paradox of the gospel is that it frees us from our fears yet leads us to fear. We rejoice in this because the gospel helps us see God rightly. We can at once tremble before Him in all His holiness yet trust Him to deal with all our sins and misplaced fears. In this teaching series, Dr. Michael Reeves cuts through the confusion about the fear of the Lord so that we might grow in the knowledge and wisdom of God that is promised to all those who fear Him.


Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.”  Colossians 2:6-7

Purpose: Provide a fundamental understanding of the Bible and the Christian faith.

The Plan: 12 classes have been identified as “Core Classes”. (Note below)

There will also be other classes that will study particular books in the Bible or important topics considered from a Biblical perspective.

When? The classes will be on Sunday mornings and will run from 9:00 to 10:15 am.

Each class usually continues for 13 weeks, then a new quarter with different classes will begin. Each year there will be 4 quarters with different classes offered in each of those 13 week periods.
