CGS is a deliberately thoughtful community of believers, endeavoring to bear witness to the Real Jesus. One of the ways we further this desire is by meeting together on Sunday mornings at 9:30 before our worship hour begins, to study God’s Truth together. During these gatherings, our goals are to understand Scripture more clearly, for the purpose of applying it to our own daily lives more faithfully.
We tackle Life in all of its manifestations in these gatherings, because we believe Scripture is intended to inform our approach to every aspect of the world’s brokenness: Family. Vocation. Marriage. Divorce. Singleness. Sexuality. Culture. Gender. Pain and Suffering. Justice. Despair. Joy.
Come join us for education, for friendship, for discussion, for encouragement, and for perspective on living in Christian relationship with each other in service of Christ’s purposes in our world. Come learn how to apply the teachings of the Real Jesus to the problems of Real People who are confronting the daily realities of the Real World!
The following classes will run from Feb. 17-March 24, 2019.
OPEN CLASS FORMATS:
The Gospel and Race Relations. Aaron McKethan, Josh Briscoe, Kris Cooper, Evan Marbury, & Bob Burns. Room S212. Following up on our weekend with Sean Lucas and Irwyn Ince, we will explore in greater depth the dynamics of living as the New Community in the Durham/Chapel Hill area.
The Scandal of Christ. Justin Carlson. Room S203-204. Why were so many people scandalized by Jesus’ words and actions? Jesus’ mother thought he had lost his mind. John the Baptist accused him of being a fraud. His most loyal followers abandoned him in his greatest moment of need. Most importantly, are we just like all of them?
Intersection – How Faith Intersects with Life. Grant Hoffman & Doug Betts. Room S202. A practical conversation on how the gospel speaks into our life between Sundays. Grant and Doug lead us in a discussion of the counter-cultural nature of biblical community in a world that does not affirm these values.
