Campaign Sunday Class: The 5 Solas: Foundational Truth That Defines Our Faith begin Jan. 14th. Register online!

October 31st, 2017, marked the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, which began when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of the church at Wittenberg University in Germany. The Reformation signified a turning point in church history. Many people began to rediscover the gospel for themselves by reading the Bible in their own language and having it preached to them in church. Entire cultures were transformed, cities were greatly impacted, and individuals came to know God more fully as a result of the preaching and teaching of the Reformation. Every Protestant church can trace their beliefs back to the time of the Reformation and beyond. The essential truth is that we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, for the glory of God alone, according to the Bible alone. As we discover these great truths together, our hope is for God to transform us so that we can reach the world with the glorious gospel of God's grace.

Good $ense Budget Class begins TODAY, Sun, 1/14, @ 9:20am in W246.

In this class you will discover what the Bible teaches about finances, how to develop spending plans for the coming year, how much you should save for retirement, and how future social security benefits fit into a long term plan. Learn how to honor God by becoming a Diligent Earner, Generous Giver, Wise Saver, Cautious Debtor & a Prudent Consumer.

Primetimers Ministries

PrimeTimers Sunday Class: 9:20am in W129/130. NEW study on Jonah led by Gary Middleton.

"Jonah: What's Lurking Below" -- Sometimes everything seems right in our life. And then an event happens that brings out an attitude in ourselves that God wants us to address. This is what happened to Jonah. God asked him to go to Nineveh and help the people of that great city repent and turn to God. This revealed Jonah's negative attitude toward the Ninevites which had been lurking below the surface of his heart. Through various means, God reached out to both the people of Nineveh and also to Jonah. Interestingly, we discover that the Ninevites repented; but we are left wondering if Jonah did. What's lurking below the surface of our hearts? This exciting study is taught by Gary Middleton.

Coming Events: 2/11--"The Hallelujah Girls" play, El Campanil Theater; 4/24--"West Side Story" play, Hoffman Theater, WC.
