The purpose of these classes is to equip believers for life and ministry. Each class will seek to equip people's heads (i.e. educate our minds), hearts (i.e. fuel our affections for Jesus and other people), and hands (i.e. motivate our wills to obey and serve).

We hope you'll join us for one of our classes this quarter. You can view and sign up for current offerings below. Note that free childcare is provided during these classes.

If you are new or just checking out the church, you're welcome to come and check out classes, too!

Stewardship

How we can use gifts we’ve been given to Glorify god and bless others

May 12 - June 30 (8 Weeks)
Teacher: Seth wachtel

Look around you. In your home. In your closet. In your wallet. Look in your bank account. In your garage. Look at your talents and your calendar. Look at your health and your body.

You’ve been given a lot. Or, or accurately, you’ve been entrusted with a lot. So what would God have you do with it all? What does faithfulness look like when it comes to the things we have?

This is the question of stewardship: how do we manage what God has given us to his glory and to the good of others?

And this is what we’re diving into in this class. What would God have you do with your money? How about your talents? Or your time?

If it’s true that we’ll be held accountable for how we lived with these things, then what does it look like to do it faithfully?

In this class, we’ll dive into these questions head-on, asking what the Lord asks of us when it comes to stewarding the gifts he’s graciously given to us.

 

Moving On: Beyond Forgive & Forget

a book study focusing on the topic of forgiveness

May 12 - June 30 (8 Weeks)
Teacher: Brenda Pauken

Forgiveness is an everyday part of the Christian life, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Sometimes we experience trauma or betrayal that feels impossible to forgive. Or maybe it’s a smaller matter that happens over and over again. Maybe it’s a relationship that is broken and difficult. Or maybe forgiveness is just not a pattern you’ve ever developed in your life. If any of these situations apply to you, then I invite you to read and study Moving On: Beyond Forgive and Forget by Ruth Ann Batstone. Together, we’ll consider whys and hows of this vital spiritual practice. 

(Note: You will need to purchase your own copy of this book in time to do some reading before the first class. Please contact brenda@sterlingparkbc.org if this presents an obstacle to your participation in the class.)
