Sunday Morning Classes

Sunday Morning Classes

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!

OPEN CLASS FORMAT

The Anxious Generation. Kyle Osborne & Bob Burns. Room S203-204.  A review, critique, and discussion of Jonathan Haidt’s new book, The Anxious Generation. Haidt proposes that since 1995 the overprotection of children from the real world and the underprotection of children from the virtual world has created a severe mental health crisis among adolescents and young adults. How should parents and the church respond to this situation?

Sorrow and Hope: Covenant in the Prophets. Josh Briscoe. Room S212. God wants to be in a relationship with His people. This is clear from the covenants He made with Adam, with Noah, and with Abraham, with Israel at Mount Sinai, and with David. But what happens when those people turn their backs on God? Come explore what the prophets of the Old Testament have to say about God’s love and sorrow for His wayward people, and the hope He has in store for the world.

James. Chris Garrett. Room S202. IThe book of James is sometimes called “the Proverbs of the New Testament.” This book aids Christians in living authentically and wisely for Christ. Join us for this four-week dive into this important NT book.

 

Coffee available in the Concourse beginning at 9:15am. All classes begin at 9:30am.
