THE JOY-FILLED MARRIAGE

Spring 2020 — Registration Open

What distinguishes happy marriages from miserable ones? Surprisingly, it’s not healthy communication nor is it our conflict resolution skills. In this class we 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. 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, March 1st—April 5th
  • Time: 6:00-7:30pm
  • Duration: 6 weeks
  • Location: Littleton Campus, Kid’s Rock Building K-3 Grade Room  (9132 W. Bowles Ave. Littleton, 80123)

JESUS, ATHEISM, AND OTHER WORLD RELIGIONS

Fall 2019 — Registration Closed

With so many belief systems in this world, is Christianity the one true religion? How can the billions of people who follow other religions such as Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, etc, be wrong in their beliefs, or is there some truth to them after all? Why don’t the Jews believe Jesus is the Messiah? Why do the Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses think they have an exclusive lock on the truth? Why do atheists claim there’s no God and believe that religious faith is a delusion? Does all of this matter? Yes, it does! Because out of the whirlwind of all these questions, Christianity stands firm on the belief that there is a God who has revealed Himself in the pages of the Bible and within our own hearts. His love for us is boundless, freeing, and life changing. However, is this exclusive claim of Christianity a legitimate one? What good reasons are there to think that the founder of Christianity, Jesus Christ, really is the Way, the Truth, and the Life? (John 14:6). The goal of this class is to find the answers to these questions, be empowered in your Christian faith, and learn how to engage with those of other world views.

  • Dates: Tuesdays, September 3rd—October 15th
  • Time: 7:00-8:30pm

THE JESUS WE NEVER KNEW

HOW UNDERSTANDING BIBLICAL CULTURE REVEALS HIS TRUEST NATURE

Fall 2019 — Registration Closed

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.

  • Dates: Tuesdays, October 22nd—December 10th (Class will not take place on Nov. 5th)
  • Time: 7:00-8:30pm

THE CHRONICLES OF PAUL

JOURNEYING THROUGH ACTS

Spring 2020 — Registration Open

After Jesus’ ascension, He tasked the Church with making Heaven more Crowded. No where in Scripture do we see this more than in the Book of Acts and no one was more influential on the spread of Christianity than the Apostle Paul. The Chronicles of Paul: Journeying through Acts class will pick up from the story of Jesus’ resurrection to the spread of Christianity throughout the Roman Empire and beyond. In giving a story-driven, chronological account of the early church, this course will explore Paul’s Chronicles through the Book of Acts and the New Testament Epistles, in order to understand the basic tenets of the Christian faith and glimpse the connection between the 1st Century Believers and what God is calling us to today as the both the global and local Church. The hope of this course is that participants will understand the introduction to Paul and the narrative of this grand story, in order that we may all receive the gracious gift of God’s grace and love, which he has “poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit.”

  • Dates: Tuesdays, January 21st—February 25th

DIGGING DEEPER

A CLOSER LOOK AT THE BOOK OF ROMANS

Fall 2019 — Registration Closed — **Group Full** 

What does having a relationship with God really mean?  How do we know what God expects of us? What can we study to gain an understanding of God? If you want to understand God’s purpose for us in life, join us as we dig deeper into God’s Word and examine the book of Romans in a study by renowned pastor and author John MacArthur. Romans is an inspired masterpiece of doctrine highlighting God’s grace, truth, and redemption. The apostle Paul shares the message of good news and eternal salvation with the church, advises believers on theological truths, gives practical applications for living the Christian life, and shows how God’s righteousness comes by grace alone through faith in Christ. The book of Romans underscores that Christianity is far more than just a doctrine—it is an essential road map for daily living. Whether you are seeking to understand more about God, new to your faith, or a long-time follower of Christ, this study will help you in your journey.
