Bridges: A Powerful Course Paving the Way for Fruitful Relationships with Muslims

February 25th - April 1st, 2018

$10

All too often, we as Christians can respond to Muslims without the compassion that characterized Jesus. Bridges seeks to replace fear with love and gentle boldness, reshaping the way Christians respond to their Muslim neighbors.

Bridges focuses on similarities, not differences. Despite deep differences in Christianity and Islam, areas of overlap exist, providing common ground upon which to connect. Bridges teaches how to use similar concepts in Christianity and Islam as a bridge to understanding and open hearts.

Bridges meets you where you are. Bridges content is understandable even without much prior knowledge of Islam, and deep enough to be valuable to those seeking to build on what they already know about Muslims.

Bridges is practical and biblical. Bridges allows you to gain biblical insight into Islamic history and Muslim beliefs, while providing useful next steps and stories that help you put the teaching into practice.

Bridges is widely used and respected. From full-time missionaries to informal small-groups, Bridges is a trusted resource for thousands of Christians globally, and comes strongly recommended by respected Christian leaders.

The Bridges Course will be taught over 6 consecutive weeks on Sunday Mornings at Oak Grove Middle School. 8:30-9:45am.

The $10 registration fee covers course materials and refreshments. Register Here

Money and the Gospel

April 8th - April 29th, 2018

Money and the Gospel is a four week introduction to learning and applying the implications of the gospel to money. The gospel transforms everything and therefore our priorities shift in regards to money as we align all of our lives with God’s mission and purposes.

Join us in taking those next steps towards stewarding money well as we look at how to view money, priorities, spending, and budgeting through the lens of the gospel. You will develop a budget as well as have the opportunity to meet individually (as a couple if married) with a financial counselor who will help you develop and implement your plan. Waldean Wall, a member of Sovereign Grace, has developed and written our material and will be teaching this interactive class. He has many years experience in helping others examine their financial priorities and developing a plan to live out those priorities.

• The class will meet: Sundays from 8:30am – 9:45am at Oak Grove • The class is free! • Childcare is available.

Please RSVP for this event.

Marriage Seminar w/ Ray and Jani Ortlund

May 4th - May 5th, 2018

$38

“This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.” Ephesians 5:32

Marriage reveals something of eternal significance. From the beginning, God designed marriage to convey a greater reality—the passionate, unfailing, redeeming love of God for sinners, the eternal romance between Christ and his bride.

Tracing marriage throughout Scripture, from the first marriage in the garden of Eden to the ultimate marriage in the book of Revelation, this seminar will lay out a transcendent vision of marriage that dignifies our own imperfect unions as a display of the gospel, offering insight and hope to every married person.
