This Semester's Classes
A beginner's class from a seasoned leader. On Thursday nights from April 19-May 24, Sermon Writing will take you through the basics of how to prepare and give a message in the sermon format, and show you some useful tools for future growth. There is a more difficult preaching class later in the year, and this is a recommended first course.
On Tuesday nights from April 17-May 22, Gospels & Acts will explore why each of the first five books in the New Testament was written, how these books might have affected each other, and what major cultural events were surrounding the immediate aftermath of Jesus' death and resurrection.
