Adult Electives Available:
1. Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll – Ben Kerns
Some things never change. Each generation of parents have the challenge of figuring out how to help their kids navigate (or be prepared to navigate) the culture in which they live and breathe. This class will help parents of all ages equip their kids to walk through the today’s world of sexuality, drugs and alcohol, and media.

2. What Is So Unique About Jesus? — Dan Nichols
Who was Jesus, really? What made him or makes him so singularly different than anyone in history (so claim Christians)? This is going to be an interactive-dynamic class on everything imaginable about Jesus. Not only will we consider the uniqueness of Jesus, but we’ll look at the divinity, the exclusivity, the historicity, and the humanity of this man who walked in Palestine 2000 years ago. Also, we’ll study the radical events of his life from the virgin birth to the resurrection from the tomb.

3. “The Sign of Jonah”: An in-depth Bible study on Matthew 12:38-42 — Arv Kretz
Jonah had no idea his disobedience to God, and subsequent rescue by a big fish, would come to symbolize THE watershed event in world history — The death and resurrection of Jesus.
This class will be an in-depth study of Jesus’s fascinating teaching in Matthew 12. If you love opening the scriptures, asking all the hard questions, learning all about the cultural context, and mining Jesus’ teaching for all it’s worth, you will love this experience.

4. A SOLUTIONS Mini-Course: How Do We Deal With Conflict? — Donna Kramer
Conflict is a distracting and stressful reality in every one of our lives, and in the lives of those we love. Leaving it unresolved is a recipe for disaster in so many ways. The class will teach us to help ourselves and help others healthfully navigate and resolve conflict in our lives. We’ll give you guidance in how to avoid detours and dead-ends by understanding the anatomy of conflict and dealing with difficult people. And we’ll give you sign posts that will help re-route you on a constructive road to resolution and reconciliation.

5. Spiritual Formation for Dummies — Jeff Mazzariello
God wants to grow us… to form us… to lead us… to heal us… to form us by the Holy Spirit. This is a foundational concept in the scriptures. But the truth is, most of us aren’t in touch with the state of our hearts and souls. Nor, if we were honest, would we know what to do next to grow. This class will help us learn the ABC’s of encountering God.

Hope to see you there!
