Practical Wisdom for the Christian Life, According to James         Café (10/21-11/18)
Suppose someone said to you, “When it comes to learning about Christianity, I think we should just look at Paul. He’s the best resource for finding out what it means to be a Christian.” How would you respond? If you are honest with yourself, do you first turn to Paul for answers to issues or tough situations in life, or do you turn to Jesus? James turned to Jesus. When he came across difficult situations or issues, he looked to the words of Christ to understand how the Christian ought to live. In other words, James took the teachings of Jesus and worked it out on the ground in terms of theology and practice. He gives us practical theology and wisdom for the Christian way of life. This is faith-seeking-understanding when it comes to tough issues in life, like money, speech, anger, and good deeds. This class will walk through some of the main lessons in the epistle of James, which are everyday issues for Christians, and explain how he addresses those issues by using the teachings of Jesus.
 
 
God Showed Up   Gym (9/9-9/23, 10/21-11/18)
It is incredibly easy for someone like Moses or Daniel to have faith and obedience in God when God audibly spoke to them. But what about the rest of us who live in an age when God does not ordinarily operate like that anymore?  Come join us in the gym as we review the stories of real life people who faced real life challenges and decided to do the right thing based on God‘s Word. This class will encourage you to take bold, righteous actions to accomplish the works of God in your every day life. God Showed Up takes a second look at some of the less famous characters in the Bible.  These men and women never had a vision or a voice from heaven telling them what to do. All they had was the Scripture, a problem, and some faith. We will see what happens when the people of God execute the actions of God based on faith in God even when the world and all logic say do something else.  Your faith will be encouraged to act boldly and expect God to show up when you do.
 
 
Teams: Three Groups Using Their Gifts at North Sub    Hospitality Room (10/28-11/11)
Ever wonder what the GO Team is? Ever curious about what a deaconess does, or what the difference is between an elder and a deacon? Come to this three-week class to get to know three teams of people serving at North Sub – who they are, what they do, and how you can participate. On 10/28, you’ll meet the GO Team that spearheads our church’s global outreach. On 11/4, you’ll meet the elders who shepherd our church family. And on 11/11, you’ll meet the deacons and deaconesses who serve behind the scenes to meet a number of ministry needs. You might catch a vision for a way you might use your gifts in the church now and in the future!
