Core Course: Worship
Using N.T. Wright's, For All God's Worth: True Worship and the Calling of the Church, we will explore both the meaning and results of Christian worship. Wright encourages us to celebrate the greatness and beauty of God as the ground and reason for worship, and shows us how reflection on who God is will lead us to true, heartfelt worship (from "worth-ship") as we seek to give God all He's worth.
Core Course: Prayer
With Timothy Keller's Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God as our guide, we will discuss way to make prayer more personal and powerful, and learn how to establish a practice of prayer that works for each person.
Core Course: Sharing the Word
Close Encounters with God will give us an opportunity to hear stories of how God is present and at work in the lives of others and learn how to discover how God is present and at work in our lives as well.
Core Course: Fruit of the Spirit
The Me I Want to Be, Becoming God's Bester Version of You by John Ortberg will help us to discover spiritual vitality like never before as we learn to live in the flow of the Spirit.
Core Course: Fellowship
One Anothering is a study by Richard Meyer based on the "one anothers" in Scripture such as "love one another," "bear one another's burdens," "submit to one another," and "encourage one another." This study will guide us into living an authentic life together.
Core Course: Serving
In Life Together, Dietrich Bonhoeffer recounts his unique fellowship during the Nazi years in Germany and gives practical advice on how to live life together in Christ by serving one another.
