CLASSES & INTENSIVES

Sign-ups for Fall 2019 Classes and Weekend Intensives are open. See the list below with descriptions and sign-up links.

As we seek to help you grow in your relationship with God, we are creating several Core Classes that we hope every person who calls Grace home will find time to invest in. Being a disciple means literally to become a learner, and so we have chosen to create several continual learning opportunities. Our hope in these classes is that we will all become life-long learners of the Words, Ways and Works of God in our lives and in our world.

We also know that you are very busy and that learning for many of you will need to be available on the journey and not simply in the classroom. That is why we are working hard to deliver the Class content to you in several different ways:

Weekly Classes: Weekly classes will be offered in both the Fall and Spring Seasons. These 10-12 weekly sessions will be offered at a predictable time each week for the duration of the season. View the listing of Classes.

Weekend Intensives: Because we know many of you may have difficulty finding a weekly time to attend our Core Classes, we are also offering classes as Weekend Intensives which will help you grab hold of our Core Content in a concentrated way through a Friday evening and all day Saturday experience. View the listing of Weekend Intensives.

Fall 2019 Classes

Family on Mission for Women
Family on Mission for Women is a closer look at establishing rhythms and predictability in our own personal lives, as well as looking at what those same rhythms look like in our families. We’ll look to the life of Jesus and learn to see what He saw and do what He did. We will also engage with practical discipleship tools that will help us learn to live a more integrated life. Childcare available.

Discipleship 101
Do you have a life worth imitating? Is anyone following you? Has anyone picked up the way of Jesus in and through your life? If you answered “No” to any of these questions, you might want to pause a second and ask “Why not?” Discipleship 101 is a course built to help you look more like who you were always destined to be, by teaching and training you in the words, ways and works of Jesus. It teaches you how to get a life others might want. And it helps you learn to lead others by training you on how to give that life away. Childcare available.

Story of God
The Story of God through human history is filled with lots of different stories. Each of these stories holds a special place in our heart and often releases new promise and potential in our walk with God. But the Story of God is also ONE STORY. It is one story of a good God’s good and beautiful creation, mankind’s fall and brokenness and God continuing to first redeem and then restore everything to His most beautiful intention. One Story is dynamic “re-telling” and “communal conversation” through the BIG STORY of the Bible for people who have never heard the whole story before, for those who are looking to share the story with others and for everyone (like all of us) who need to hear it again! Childcare available.

Listening Prayer 1: Learning to Listen to God and Live in Freedom
Here at Grace, we believe the truth of scripture that says the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but that God has come to set us free and bring abundant life (John 8, 10:10). We all experience hindrances that impact our thoughts and behaviors and keep us from living in health and wholeness. When we invite the truth of the Holy Spirit to speak into these places, we begin to experience the freedom and abundance that Scripture describes. Listening Prayer 1 provides training on how to hear from God and invite Him to speak life into dead places and bring hope to situations that may seem hopeless. Childcare available.

Investment Strategies for Growing the Stuff that Matters. Life is a series of investments. Every day we are faced with decisions on how to spend our time and other assets.

Ventures in Oneness Core Intensive / November 8-9 COST: $50/couple
In Scripture, marriage is sacred. It is the highest form of covenantal relationship in which two people become one flesh – solidified in unity, intimacy, direction and pursuit. In fact, the apostle Paul uses the marriage bond as a metaphor for the unbreakable relationship between Christ and His church. Unfortunately, however, what we read so easily in Scripture isn’t always as easily lived out in real life. In a world where 1 + 1 = 2, not just in basic math but in basic marriage, Ventures in Oneness invites all of us into the brave new world of covenantal companionship where together we will find what life might look like when 1 + 1 become 1.

Discovery Bible Core Intensive / November 8-9 COST: $25/couple
Suppose you have been praying for people in your city or workplace. You have taken some risks and gotten into some conversations on spiritual topics. So what do you do next? How about inviting people to discover who God is through reading the Bible together? During a Discovery Bible Study, participants learn first-hand what the Bible says about God, about people, and what it means to follow Jesus. It’s a non-threatening way to start discipling someone, even before they become a believer. You don’t need to be a Bible or theology expert to launch an effective Discovery Bible Study. A Discovery Bible Study is based on the belief that God’s word is powerful, and that God’s Spirit is faithful to lead us into all truth.
