Summer Electives...Join One!

Summer electives are around the corner! Electives are an important part of being and becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ. Being/Becoming a disciple of Christ involves three things (like three legs on a footstool): volunteering to serve others in a ministry, participating in small group bible study (a Life Group or an Elective), and being generous with finances. If we leave out one of these “legs” then our footstool requires unattainable balance to be of any use. Don’t lose your balance through the summer…participate in an elective!

Many Christians today live their lives, plan their schedules, and use their resources completely disconnected from what they say they believe. This spiritual disconnect is the cause of much of the stress in our lives. Foundations is a practical study of the truths of the Christian faith and how these truths are to be lived your relationships, your character, and your work. Rather than just teaching doctrinal knowledge, this elective shows you how to apply Biblical truths and implement them in your everyday life. 

Foundations is an ongoing elective...that means it goes year round. But, each study is a stand alone topic. Dave Graves leads this elective. The topics discussed in the Summer Semester will be the Doctrines of Creation, Salvation, Sanctification, and Good & Evil. Foundations is for new believers and seasoned saints. It will challenge you to behave what you say you believe. The cost for participants' materials is $10.

Lydia shows us how to influence the people around us. Elizabeth's life challenges us to care for others. Women like Herodias and Sapphira warn us against turning away from God toward bitterness and dishonesty. Cherry Duckett, Michelle Flower, and Julie Hoxworth, as co-facilitators, will introduce participants to twelve significant women of the New Testament. This bible study and times of discussion will invite you to enter into their lives and learn from them what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. This elective is for ladies, both new believers and seasoned bible readers. The cost for materials is $7 per participant.
