SUMMER 2014 DISCIPLESHIP CLASSES
  WEDNESDAY CLASSES
 
The Names of God in the Old Testament
Teacher: Glen Howe
May 28 - August 6 11 am in the Cornerstone Room of the ROC & 6 pm in the chapel


For most of us, our names simply identify us. However, in the Bible, God’s names and titles are windows into His character. In this 11-week study we will look at the three main names and eight compound names of God used in the Old Testament. Each study is designed to give you a clearer understanding of who God is and how to call upon the God who heals, protects and provides.
 
Grace-Based Parenting
Teacher: Shanna Hand
May 28 - July 30, 6 pm, Fellowship Hall, Room C


Parents in our post-modern world tend to be committed to, but anxious about, their child-rearing responsibilities. Parents who participate in our Grace-Based Parenting class can expect to go away with a blueprint for building confident, courageous and cooperative kids. This course will show you a grace-based, character-driven model to nurture well-rounded and loving kids—and have a great time in the process! Workbooks are $10 per family.
