The Apostles’ Creed – Led by Kelly Crabbe in the Community Room
Our Creeds have purpose: our Creeds summarize the truths we believe as Christians. In post-Christendom, we hear that truth is relative. But Jesus said, “‘For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.’ Pilate said to him, ‘What is truth?’” (Jn 18) Many of us have memorized the Apostles’ Creed. In this study we will dive deep to understand what the creed means, and why we believe these eternal truths and therefore listen to the voice of Jesus.

Colossians – Led by Tom Hacker in the Conference Room
Colossians is a circular letter (4:16) written by Paul during his imprisonment in Rome.  Notable for its high Christology (1:13ff, 2:13ff) Paul emphasizes that sufficiency is found in Christ alone apart from works, cautioning his hearers to continue in faith (1:23).

Defending Your Faith – Led by Pastor Scott Abel and Vicar Micah Steiner in the Fellowship Hall
An introduction on how to defend the faith and challenge the unbelief within the modern world. We focus on developing a biblical method of apologetics that can be effective in sharing with others the reason for the hope you have in Christ.

5 Love Languages – Led by Cassie Schermbeck in Room 300
There are five love languages: Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Receiving Gifts, Quality Time, and Physical Touch. Each one is important and expresses love in its own way. Learning your partner’s and your own primary love language will help create a stronger bond in your relationship. We will be using the curriculum and books of Dr. Gary Chapman.

New Member Weekend is October 12-13.
