Taught by: Pastor Josh Kappes

Is it harder for you to change and grow as a Christian than it should be?  Do you wonder what is holding you back? Have you ever considered it might be idolatry?  Using real-life stories and examples, Brad Bigney shows us how the idols we might not even recognize can still have devastating effects in our lives.  In this transparent, honest book, he helps us  to identify our idols, understand how they lead us to commit treason against the gospel--and finally repent of them and root them out forever by turning to the only One who can fill our every need.

Pre-Marriage, Marriage, and Family

Taught by: Mike and Christel Allen, Scott and Tracie Forrest, and Elliot and Ginny Forbes-Robinson

Description: For couples, married or engaged, who desire to know God’s design and purpose for marriage as well as what to do when your marriage is missing the mark.  Topics include:  God’s blueprint for marriage, communication to share hearts and resolve conflicts, intimacy in marriage and overcoming barriers to it, the roles of the husband and wife, and dealing with family issues in our modern culture.  The course will be taught by three couples, with differing backgrounds and experiences in marriage, who share a passion to see Christian marriages start or become healthy, stay healthy, and last a lifetime with Jesus Christ at the center. 


Counter Culture

Taught by: Kevin Johnson and Eric Showmaker

Description: Everywhere we turn, battle lines are being drawn—traditional marriage vs. gay marriage, pro-life vs. pro-choice, personal freedom vs. governmental protection. And as difficult conversations about homosexuality, abortion, and religious liberty continue to inject themselves into our workplaces, our churches, our schools, and our homes, Christians everywhere are asking the same question: HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO RESPOND TO ALL THIS?
