Life Courses will be offered September 8 – May 17 during our Sunday Morning Education Hour from 9:15-10:15am. Courses are taught by church members, TEDS professors, and visiting teachers. Adults, college students, and high school students will be invited to attend Fall 2019 Life Courses.
 
These courses serve the vision for our Adult Ministry: to coordinate and interact with Student Ministry and Kids Ministry in a commitment to moving from the Well to the Word to the World.
 
 
LIFE COURSE MASTER SCHEDULE – FALL 2019
 
 
CURRENT COURSE DESCRIPTIONS
 
Questioning Evangelism  Gym (Oct 20 & 27, Nov 17 & 24) Clayton Schmidt
In this life course, you’ll learn and practice a simple, effective style of evangelism, which focuses on how to use insightful questions and dialogue to help others understand the good news!
 
Problem of Evil  Hospitality Room (Oct 20 & 27, Nov 17 & 24) Pastor Tim Higgins
From death to crimes to natural disaster, it seems that suffering and evil are all around us. How should Christians properly understand evil, and how can they respond when others raise this common objection to faith? 
 
Taste of Alpha  Café (Oct 27, Nov 17 & 24) Pastor Craig & Marsha Baldacci
So you don’t know what Alpha is about?  You’re nervous inviting someone? Come, taste and see as we provide a sampling of Alpha for you to experience on Sunday mornings. You’ll walk away with an understanding of Alpha and a desire to invite someone.
 
Faithful Foreigners  Gym (Nov 3 & 10) Guest teacher Dr. Madison Pierce, Professor of New Testament at TEDS,
Hebrews Scholar
This 2-week course will focus on Hebrews 11. Often called the ‘Hall of Faith’, Hebrews 11 describes faithful actions of the people of God in familiar stories about characters from the Old Testament. In each story, the author highlights something that ties these characters together in a new way: they are foreigners on earth.
 
Guest Speakers Gym (10/13) Ebenezer Perinbaraj and Esther Rajamani
Ebenezer and his wife Esther will talk about their previous ministry and experiences as Christians in India, their experience in the past few years here in our church and while studying at Trinity, and their upcoming ministry with Reach Global.
 
Evangelism as Exiles Café (9/8-10/6) Marc Sharpee
 
We will be going through the book ‘Evangelism as Exiles’ by Elliot Clark. Mr. Clark spent several years proclaiming the gospel in a predominantly Muslim country in Central Asia. Throughout this book he draws from 1 Peter and his own experiences in Asia to get to the heart of evangelism and encourage us to be evangelists in our own communities.
 
Christianity’s influence in our culture is waning and Clark’s solution is that we should reclaim a sense of living as exiles; faithfully waiting for the return of Christ while living in a land that is not our own. This book will challenge our expectations of what evangelism is, why we don’t evangelize and how we should evangelize in our ever changing culture. It will be a more interactive class where we will wrestle with how this applies to us and how we can live it out here on the North Shore.
 
This class requires sign-up because the church is going to provide you with a copy of the book. We will be requesting that you commit to do your best to attend the 5 sessions. Click here to sign-up or let Karen know you want to be a part of the class (ksantelik@northsub.com).
 
Visages of Jesus Gym (9/8-10/6) Tage Klint
A visage is the surface of an object presented to view. Join us Sunday Mornings at 9:15am as we take a deeper dive into understanding all the different aspects displayed by the Second Person of the Trinity and their significance. In the Visages of Jesus adult education class, we will take a look at 5 different visages or facets of Jesus that are presented in Scripture. We will trace these ideas from their introduction in the Old Testament, the significance to our understanding of God, the Messianic implications, how and when we will see their final fulfillment.
