Wednesday Work Outs

Our weekly small groups designed to encourage and give opportunities for students to actively follow Jesus in their daily lives. Our goal is for students that attend to build visible and lasting spiritual disciplines such as daily devotionals, testimony sharing, evangelism, and praying together.

Wednesday Work Outs are every Wednesday. The last one of the month is staff training and so the work out will be student led. 

7:30pm-9:30pm in C302

Sunday Deep - "Who is Jesus"

Sunday Deep is a new program that we are piloting.  The goal is to provide deeper understanding of following Jesus in conjunction with our adult ministry classes.  

Our pilot program will correspond with our Korean Adult ministry's Heidelberg Catechism class and will be looking at our foundation beliefs as Christians (in fancy terms: Systematic Theology).

Our classes will be from 2pm-4pm on Sundays in the Christ First office, D413.

The schedule of fall classes are:

1.   9/17 - “What is the Bible and why do we believe it?”
2.   9/24 “Who is God?”
3.   10/1 “Who are we as mankind?”
4.   10/8 “Who is Jesus?”
5.   10/15 “What did Jesus do?”
6.   10/22 “Who is the Holy Spirit?”
7.   11/5 “What do we do now?”
8.   11/12 “What is the church?”
9.   12/3 What about Heaven?”

"Am I Ready to Date?" - Equipping Seminar

The problem when many people ask this question is that they are looking for some emotional feeling as an answer.  However there are many practical character tools that are helpful in having a healthy dating relationship that we can identify and develop before we start dating.  We are going to be going through some of those things so that you can have a measurable reasons as to why you may or may not be ready to date even if your emotions are leading you another way. Also then you will know some of the areas in your life that you need God's sanctification in before seriously engaging in a dating relationship. 

This is open to all ages, parents, and those of any dating experience.

Truth Matters Conference: A Fearless Faith
Sep
9
to Sep 10

Truth Matters Conference: A Fearless Faith

Register at: http://www.thetruthmattersconference.com/

The Truth Matters Conference is about bringing the truth of the Christian Gospel to light. We’ve designed the conference to help young people think about the credibility of the Christian faith and to train them to make a gracious defense of the Gospel. Jesus says in John 18:37, “For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth.  Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.”  The truth mattered to Christ because he said of himself that he was “the way, the truth, and the life”. We live in an age that needs convicted men and women, driven by grace and truth, to be a witness to the world around us.  Through our actions, our conversations, our prayers, and our worship, we desire to see a movement of the glorious gospel in our city.

For this Fall conference, we are partnering up with the ministry of Dr. Frank Turek, founder of CrossExamined.org.  Here’s their take on the need for a Fearless Faith:

“Dad, I don’t believe in God anymore.” Those are the words of a former Church youth group leader to her father after only four weeks of classes at UNC Chapel Hill.  This is not an exception but the norm: 75% of Christian youth walk away from the church when they go to college. And most Christian adults are afraid to talk about Christ because they don’t know how to answer objections to their faith.

The Christian faith is being strongly challenged from nearly every segment of society, from the college classroom to the corporate boardroom. In fact, college professors are five times more likely to be atheists than the general public, and more than half of professors have unfavorable feelings toward Evangelical Christians. Add to this, a barrage of “sensitivity training,” politically correct indoctrination and peer pressure both at school and in the workplace, and we have a perfect storm, toxic to faith.  Unfortunately, most students and adults go into that hostile environment unarmed and unprepared.  That’s why the Fearless Faith Seminar is essential!
