"Our lifelong nostalgia, our longing to be reunited with something in the universe from which we now feel cut off, to be on the inside of some door which we have always seen from the outside, is no mere neurotic fancy, but the truest index of our real situation. And to be at last summoned inside would be both glory and honour beyond all our merits and also the healing of that old ache."
-- C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory
Winter Quarter Adult Sunday School Classes are: Jim Stewart and Scott Chesemore will guide you through Your Money Counts by Howard Dayton. Meeting in room 13. We will show you how to manage your personal finances in a highly practical, Bible-based way. You'll be amazed at the impact that proper money management - from establishing a budget and getting out of debt to long-term investing and charitable giving - has on your relationship with God. Pastor Baile, Pastor Parker, Scott Melson, Tom Pulaski, and Marcus Cato are all tag team teaching on a study in the Psalms, meeting in the Sanctuary. We will do an overview of the 5 books of Psalms and how to interpret the Psalms. We will then consider on different weeks the variety of Psalms (lament Psalms, penitent Psalms, Messianic Psalms, the Psalms of ascents, wisdom Psalms, imprecatory Psalms, etc). Russ Rushton will continue teaching in room 10-11, J.I. Packer’s incredible book, Knowing God. Many Christians consider Knowing God to be one of the most significant Christian books they’ve ever read. In the fall quarter, we went thru the 1st 13 chapters, and now in the winter quarter we will study the last 9 chapters. The class is encouraged to keep up with the reading schedule (oftentimes one chapter a week) so that the participants can get the maximum out of our study. And some of Packer’s best chapters will be studied in the winter quarter!! Pastor Parker will also be leading the Inquirers Class in Room 12, Charlie Baile’s office, for those interested in church membership. The class begins on January 18th.
