Current Class

What is the difference between genuine faith and counterfeit faith? How do we know for sure that our faith is real? How can we know joy even in trials, and patience even in suffering?

Well-known and often quoted, James is concise, intensely practical, and filled with memorable metaphors and illustrations. As such, it has become one of the most popular New Testament books in the church. Join us each week as we consider what the book of James teaches us and how we can apply it to our daily lives.


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.
