FALL DISCIPLESHIP CLASSES STARTING AUGUST 15TH
Why I Believe
Do you have questions about the resurrection of Christ, the evidence of an afterlife, the debate between creation and evolution, and more? You've come to the right place! Providing logical, satisfying answers to the most pivotal questions about Christianity, author Chip Ingram equips you to know what and why you believe--and how to explain it to others.
Facilitator: Jeff Engel, Location: CMC Family Theater, 12 Sessions, Cost: Books are $8.99 and there will be some available in the class.
Big Bang or Big God?
In the book “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist”, Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. With conviction and clear thinking, Geisler and Turek guide readers through some of the traditional, tested arguments for the existence of a creator God. They move into an examination of the source of morality and the reliability of the New Testament accounts concerning Jesus. The final section of the book deals with a detailed investigation of the claims of Christ. This volume will be an interesting read for those skeptical about Christianity, as well as a helpful resource for Christians seeking to articulate a more sophisticated defense of their faith.

Malachi: A Love That Never Lets Go
This Bible Study Book is an 8 session women's Bible study on the book of Malachi. In this study Lisa Harper focuses on God’s mercy. On our worst day, God doesn’t walk away from us.

No matter how many times we mess up, God loves (and never leaves) broken people. “I the LORD do not change” Malachi 3:6 Women taking this Bible study will gain a fresh perspective on the Book of Malachi. It is more than a book in the Bible about tithing. Lisa brings the Scripture to life through dynamic storytelling.

Breathe: Making Room for Sabbath
This Bible Study is a 5 week course on making space for God to speak. We will discover how to make space—space for God to speak to us and the room for us to hear. It’s time to set aside the activities and busyness which swallow up our rest and our peace—time for us to breathe.
