GROW CLASSES

Clear Pathways to Spiritual Growth

We are all engaged in a life-long process of spiritual growth.  No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, we have opportunities for you to develop at your own pace.

 

Each of our GROW classes and experiences are designed to help meet the specific needs of people at each stage of their journey.

 

New classes will be offered this fall. Here are some recent offerings.

Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes: Removing Cultural Blinders to Better Understand the Bible

Wednesdays, 7-8pm, Zoom (April 7 - May 26)

Teachers: David Huntley
Cost: $15 (scholarships available when you register)

What was clear to the original readers of Scripture is not always clear to us. Because of the cultural distance between the biblical world and our contemporary setting, we often bring modern Western biases to the text.  This class will help us better understand our own cultural lenses and how they can distort a text. The class, based on the book by the same title, will have weekly reading and homework questions.

Sacred Rhythms: Arranging Our Lives for Spiritual Transformation

Wednesdays, 1-2pm, College Church (April 7 - May 19)
This class will meet outdoors when suitable, otherwise, indoors with masks and social distancing.

Facilitator: Betsy Wassmann
Cost: $14 (scholarships available when you register)

Do you long for a deep, fundamental change in your life with God? Do you desire a greater intimacy with God? Do you wonder how you might truly live your life as God created you to live it? Spiritual disciplines are activities that open us to God's transforming love and the changes that only God can bring about in our lives. This class will invite you to understand and experience Solitude and Silence, Sabbath, Lectio Divina, and more—and provide practical ideas for weaving these ancient practices into your everyday life.

The Good and Beautiful God: Falling in Love with the God Jesus Knows

Wednesdays, 7-8pm, Zoom (April 7 - May 26)

Facilitators: Pierre & Deana Willems
Cost: $15 (scholarships available when you register)

“God wants me to try harder.”

“God blesses me when I'm good and punishes me when I'm bad.”

“God is angry with me.”

We all have ideas that we tell ourselves about God and how he works in our lives. Some are true--but many are false. James Bryan Smith believes that the most important thing about a person is what they think about God. The path to spiritual transformation begins here. This class will invite you to put your ideas to the test to see if they match up with what Jesus himself reveals about God. It will also equip you to engage in spiritual practices that work these truths into your mind and heart.
