Dates: March 21 — May 16
TIME: 6:45PM to 8:00PM
Soteria University is our adult education program that explores the Bible and Christianity on a deeper level. Soteria University offers classes on books of the Bible and a variety of topics like marriage, parenting, apologetics, finances, and more.
At the heart of Soteria University are core modules that cover theology, Bible survey, Bible study, and personal ministry. Core modules are modeled after the first year of a Bible college degree and allow students to dig deeper by offering optional reading, homework, and a certificate for completion. Core modules are offered on a three-year rotating basis.
Sing! — Pastor Cody (Room 101)
"Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts." Paul penned these words almost two thousand years ago. Since the resurrection of Jesus, Christians have been using music to encourage one another in the faith. This class will survey church music historically, theologically, and practically. In other words, we will look at why we sing, what we sing, and how we sing it. To give you a practical example, each week we will be singing and evaluating old and new songs for their "singability" and content.
Fit for the King — David Bush & Joe Tewell (Room 102)
Cost: $50 per person or $75 per couple.
Expert instructors lead this class that investigates what it means to live a healthy lifestyle and what God expects regarding our physical bodies. Fit for the King seeks to give a biblical perspective on health and fitness. We'll talk about myths and misunderstandings about food, diet, and fitness. We'll provide tools to help you determine a healthy living plan. The class fee includes book, class materials and binder, instruction, and healthy snacks.
Gospel Fluency — Pastor Trent (Room 105)
Cost: $15 for book
"To become fluent in a new language, you must immerse yourself in it until you actually start to think about life through it. Becoming fluent in the gospel happens the same way—after believing it, we have to intentionally rehearse it (to ourselves and to others) and immerse ourselves in its truths. Only then will we start to see how everything in our lives, from the mundane to the magnificent, is transformed by the hope of the gospel." Join Pastor Trent for a book study through one of this year's best books: Gospel Fluency by Jeff Vanderstelt.
Getting Acquainted with the Stranger — Pastor Mike (Room 106)
Cost: $10 per book
The book “The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus” has become a staple around Soteria. That’s because it’s a great tool to help anyone--whether a longtime Christian, a new believer, or unbeliever--understand the how the whole Bible fits together. Everyone should read this book! Join Pastor Mike as he teaches how to do Stranger Studies!
Growing Together: Growth Group Leader Training — Pastor Zach (Room 107)
Growing Together seeks to train leaders for one of the keep elements of our ministry: Growth Groups. This new class will explore both the biblical philosophy of growing together as well as the nuts and bolts of group life. This class is for current and potential growth group leaders.
