Christian Life Academy

Spring 2019

All Classes begin at 9:00 a.m. each Sunday morning at the Hilton Greenville.
The key to Spiritual Growth that we see from both the model and the instruction of the New Testament is to connect with other believers in small groups to study God’s Word, and to apply it to our lives. The relationships that are built in small groups are resources God gives us for encouragement, understanding, and walking in step with the Holy Spirit on a daily basis. On Sunday mornings we encourage you to connect with one of the following studies to strengthen your walk with God, and to be an encouragement to others. 
 
 
 

Bible Studies for Life, Spring 2019 (with Dave Ballard)

The two studies in the Spring 2019 session of Bible Studies for Life are subjects of interest to this inside and outside the family of God. Finding Meaning: Wisdom from Ecclesiastes looks at the question asked by so many: Is there any meaning in this life? The second study, He Said What? Hard Sayings of Jesus, looks at seven things Jesus said with which we often struggle. Discovering the rich truths “hidden” in His teaching opens the door for a deeper relationship with Christ.

Invite someone to join you in your Bible study group this Spring. As you walk through these studies, you will discover a richer relationship with Christ – and they will, too, along with a community to encourage their growth.

 

The Gospel Project: Into the Promised Land (with Oregon Lawton)

In His compassionate time, the Lord delivered His people from slavery in Egypt by means of Moses and great signs and wonders, and then guided them to the edge of the promised land in spite of their unbelief and disobedience. God was faithful. The next generation of Israelites returned to the edge of the promised land forty years later, and this time they marched in faith behind their new leader, Joshua. The Lord fought for His people and settled them in their new home, fulfilling His promise to Abraham. The Israelites had peace in the land, but they still had work to do to drive out their enemies. Rather than obey in faith, they rebelled once again, causing God to discipline them with other nations. Still the Lord is always faithful and compassionate, and He raised up deliverers for His people. But their shortcomings revealed the need for the ultimate Deliverer from the curse of sin, Jesus Christ.

 

Old Testament Survey (with Marty Price)

While we know stories from the Old Testament, such as Daniel and Lion’s Den, David and Goliath, and the Tower of Babel, we struggle to know where and why these events took place, how they fit into the flow of Bible history, and why they are important for us today. Pastor Marty will lead us through a survey of the entire Old Testament, examining the chronological order of events, and the preparation for God’s redemptive work through Jesus Christ in the New Testament.
