Core Class: Retro Church

Church history is both humbling and inspiring! This 4-part class explores the history of our Christian faith and how we got to where we are today.

Part 1: The Early Church
Blake Jennings | June 5, 2019
The more we study church history, the more we are humbled by the realization that we are ALL finite, fallen humans trying as best we can to find and follow Jesus while being pushed and pulled by the currents of our society in ways we’re not even aware of!
Part 2: The Middle Church
Blake Jennings | June 12, 2019
Through the Medieval to the Modern era, the church in the West has radically changed. With multiple branches of increasingly diverse theology and practices, all at war with one another, the horrific violence birthed a new philosophical movement in Europe: The Enlightenment.
Part 3: The (Post-)Modern Church
Blake Jennings | June 19, 2019
Intellectual and philosophical movements in the West relied on human reason rather than revelation as the source of truth and progress. As the church swept along with rapid global changes, radical new freedoms — including freedom of religion — emerged as society began to separate church and state.
Part 4: The Present-Day Church
Blake Jennings | June 26, 2019
What's the most important conversation churches need to have today? What excites you about the changing opportunities to proclaim the Gospel?

Core Class: Cover to Cover

The entire Bible tells one grand story, a story centered on Jesus. In this class, we'll explore the story of Scripture in nine words divided into three parts.

The class will cover the theology of the Bible and practical ways to engage scripture for yourself. Discussion questions for groups and further individual study are included.
