Forming the Faithful
Our word “disciple” comes from the Greek word mathétés, which primarily means “learner.” While discipleship at Peace Church means much more than just learning “head knowledge,” we have to acknowledge that learning about and from Jesus is a primary way through which we become more faithful disciples.
Peace Church Classes are one way in which we engage in such learning, diving deeper into the Bible, theology, history, and culture in a thoughtful, discussion-oriented way.
View this year’s upcoming classes below and join us on Sundays from 5:30–7:00 PM in Room 207.
Sept 15 – October 6
Whether it’s at school, work, our neighborhood, our living room, or the grocery store, we encounter people who don’t know Jesus and who are asking tough questions. But the question for us is this: can we give an answer? One of the leading reasons Christians say they don’t share about their faith with others is that they are afraid of being asked tough questions. In this series, we’ll look at four questions the world is asking and consider how Christians can respond in truth and love.
October 13 – November 24
God saved me. These are perhaps the first words of a newborn Christian. But what do they mean? How did they happen? The Bible has a lot to say about how God saves sinners, but some of it is hard to understand and contains some tricky words like election and predestination. On top of that, Reformed people have attached another tricky word to this conversation, a word that carries a lot of baggage – Calvinism. So what does it all mean and why does it matter? In this series, we’ll explore the Bible’s teaching about how precisely God rescues sinful people and why it matters for your life everyday.
