THE JOY-FILLED MARRIAGE

Spring 2021 — Registration Open

What distinguishes happy marriages from miserable ones? Surprisingly, it’s not healthy communication nor is it your conflict resolution skills. It’s joy within your relationship. Within this class, we will dive into an aspect of marriage called the “joy gap”, which is the length of time between moments of shared joy within your marriage. When the joy gap gets bigger, problems are more likely to overwhelm you, resentment creeps in, and you start to feel distant and alone in your marriage. When the joy gap is smaller, you regularly feel connected and happy, problems feel manageable, and your marriage becomes a reliable source of joy. But how do you ensure that you are experiencing joy regularly? We will discover and discuss four habits that keep joy regular and problems small. Each session will combine teaching as well as relational-exercises meant to boost joy and re-train your brain to make joy your default setting. Whether you are married or in a relationship, the skills taught in this class will help you return to joy more quickly after periods of disconnection, create stronger relational-bonds, elongate times of happiness, and boost your enjoyment of physical and emotional intimacy.

  • Dates: Sundays, April 11th—May 16th
  • Time: 6:00-7:30pm
  • Duration: 6 weeks
  • Location: Littleton Campus, Main Auditorium  (9136 W. Bowles Ave. Littleton 80123)

JESUS, ATHEISM, AND OTHER WORLD RELIGIONS

Fall 2020  Registration Closed — ONLINE ONLY

How we see God, and Jesus, determines everything about how we see the world, ourselves, and what will satisfy the deepest longing of our hearts. What do other world religions believe, and why is Christianity THE truth? Interestingly enough, many atheists in Western culture have come from a Christian background. Hindus, Buddhists, and those of the New Age Movement set Jesus Christ on the same level as their other spiritual teachers. Jews think Jesus was a misguided teacher. Muslims honor Him as prophet, but not as savior or divine. Both Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses preach Jesus as a created being, not God almighty in the flesh. On the other hand, is Christianity narrow minded, or exceptionally true among all these other voices? How do we understand those who believe differently than we do, and how can we show them the truth, in love, that the real Jesus Christ is who we’re all searching for? The goal of this class is to empower Christians in their own faith and in engaging with those of other world views.

  • Dates: Tuesdays, September 8th—October 20th

THE JESUS WE NEVER KNEW

HOW UNDERSTANDING BIBLICAL CULTURE REVEALS HIS TRUEST NATURE

Fall 2020 — Registration Closed — ONLINE ONLY

Our 21st century American culture is extraordinarily different from the culture in which Jesus lived.  So many treasures of the life of Jesus either go unnoticed or are misinterpreted simply because we’re unaware of the Jewish and pagan cultural context in which Jesus lived out His mission.  Even our English translations of the Bible can cause us to miss the richness of the Scriptures.  The goal of this class is to make the Gospels come alive to you by discovering what the many storylines and events meant within the intriguing culture of these ancient people.  If you begin to unearth these hidden treasures, you’ll gain priceless insights into the heart of Jesus and have a new-found motivation for reading God’s word.

JESUS, ATHEISM, AND THE CASE FOR CHRISTIANITY

Fall 2020  Registration Closed — ONLINE ONLY

“Honor the Messiah as Lord in your hearts. Always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you. However, do this with gentleness and respect.” (1 Peter 3:15-16a) As Christians, the challenges to our faith are fired at many angles by a skeptical world. If we are honest, we can even face these struggles within our own hearts. The questions are hard, and they are many: How do I really know God exists and cares about me? Is the God of the Old Testament the same as the God of New Testament? How can we know for sure that the Bible is God’s actual word and can be trusted? How could all the other religions be wrong, don’t they have some truth also? What do they think about Jesus? Does the Bible and science disagree? Did God create us or did we evolve? What is God doing about all the evil and suffering in the world? These questions are daunting, but don’t be discouraged. Your Christian faith holds the key to these answers. By the end of this class, you will be empowered in your own belief and in your engagement with a skeptical world.

THRIVE: WOMEN OF THE WORD

Winter/Spring 2021 — Registration Open

Thrive is a gathering of women from all walks of life who seek to study God’s Word together on a regular basis. It’s our desire to constantly grow in our knowledge and understanding of God’s word as we dig deep into different studies in order to do so. Our newest study will be “Jesus & Women: In the First Century and Now” by biblical culturalist Kristi McLelland.

Imagine walking the dusty roads of Galilee with Jesus of Nazareth—braving jostling crowds just to touch the edge of His cloak and hear Him say, “Take heart, daughter, your faith has healed you.” Those words, once meant to comfort a hurting woman’s soul thousands of years ago, were also meant for you. On those dusty roads, Kristi will transport you back to Jesus’ world, following in the footsteps of the women who came face-to-face with the Living God. Over the course of this study, you will examine the historical and cultural climate of first-century Middle Eastern society to not only understand Jesus more deeply, but also to fuel your worship of Him today.

  • Dates: Tuesdays, Jan. 12th—April 27th or Thursdays, Jan. 14th—April 29th
  • Time: Tuesdays 9:00-11:15am or Thursdays 6:30-8:30pm
  • Duration: 14 weeks (Group NOT meeting the week of Spring Break)
  • Location: Either Online Video Conferencing Group or In-Home Small Group
