what is man that you are mindful of him? God’s image in humanity
One of the defining controversies of our modern age is the nature of humanity itself. From ethics to technology to politics, the debate concerning what exactly we are as human beings is of central fascination to the world around us, causing both confusion and contention between various points of view and leading to social and personal turmoil.Yet where the secular world seems at a loss to establish any true answer, the Christian is equipped with the answers furnished by God in His Word, where we are taught that humanity has a special dignity and worth that comes with having been created in God’s image. This class will cover doctrinal issues including the creation of humanity, the fall, sin, salvation in Christ, resurrection, and glorification, seeking to equip our hearts and minds with the tools to answer the question posed by David to God, “What is man that you are mindful of him?”

About Our Classes
Our Sunday classes seek to equip our congregation to live more faithfully and authentically for the glory of Christ. At the heart of all our classes is the gospel - the good news of the grace of Jesus Christ - and the belief that true spiritual transformation happens when we apply the Gospel to all of life. As the biblical gospel takes root in our minds and hearts, we come to love God more fully, live in community more authentically, and serve God more faithfully in the world.
Most broadly, our class topics fall into one of three categories:
First, we want to teach the core elements of the Christian Faith. These courses include overviews of the Bible, the basics of Christian theology, and surveys of church history.
Second, we want to build Christian character. These classes explore the ways in which the gospel teaches us to pray, worship, grow in holiness, forgive and reconcile, and live in community.
Third, we want to equip for Christian service. Every Christian is called to serve. Thus, these classes discuss living a gospel-centered life for the sake of others. Classes include personal evangelism, apologetics, world missions, work, mercy ministry, marriage, parenting, and financial stewardship.
Classes meet downstairs in the Fellowship Hall.
