Adult Education And Enrichment

NEW: The Kingdom Agenda video series with Tony Evans begins TODAY, Sun, May 1st @ 9:20am in W246/247.

Class Description: In this series, we will discover how, under God, this kingdom vision:

  • Helps you find greater purpose in life
  • Guides your family toward Him
  • Deepens your understanding of God's use of the church
  • Changes the way you think about politics, culture, and philosophy

What Will I Learn?
God's kingdom isn't just about theology and church. It isn't just a quaint religious idea of an obscure theological concept. It's about a whole new way of seeing the world and your place in it. This study will help you think differently about your life, your relationships, and your walk with God. When you start with a kingdom agenda and embracing your place in His kingdom, nothing will ever be the same!
Sundays @ 9:20 - 10:30 AM ~ May 1 - August 28, 2016.
