Course Available in Spring 2021
Foundations is a once-in-a-lifetime course designed to lay the ground work for you to begin reigning in life! This 10-week journey will put you on track to experiencing & building a transformative life with God.
This class is not your ordinary Bible class or home group discussion. Participants who successfully complete this course will be confirmed in the faith. We call this confirmation. You may ask, what is confirmation? Confirmation is a formal process that authenticates a person’s experience. Almost every life skill or vocation has a ‘confirmation’ process. Teenagers go through a process to get their driver’s license. (and all the parents said, Amen!) Lawyers pass the bar before they can practice law. Plumbers, at least the ones that know what they’re doing, have been licensed. In the same way, Foundations is the formal process where believers are validated in the most important arena of life—their walk with God!
Have you been confirmed? Has there been any real validation of your spiritual life? What could be more important? Apostle Paul told the Colossian Christians, “As you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught” (Colossians 2:6-7). Not only are we to receive Jesus Christ as Lord, but we are also to be ‘established in the faith.’ Foundations is the course that is specifically designed to do just that—to make sure you are rooted, built up and established for a life well lived before God. It is a prerequisite for leadership at Community Church. The cost is $50/person for the materials.
Discovering Your Gifts
Discovering, developing & exercising your spiritual gifts are key to becoming the person and Christian leader God wants you to be. This 8-week in-person self-reflective course, taught by Pastor Charlie and Pastor Mike, will help you to better understand the Holy Spirit’s purpose in your life and discover your unique Spiritual and natural gifts. Instruction is based primarily on key Scriptural passages & the books, Discover Your God-Given Gifts by Don & Katie Fortune & Discover Your Spiritual Gifts by C. Peter Wagner. Weekly in-person classes begin Sunday, Jan. 24 5:30p – 7p in our Next Steps room. Foundations and Next Steps are prerequisites for this course. No childcare is provided. This course is for people 16 and older.
GLORIOUS MESS LAY COUNSELOR TRAINING
