Men and Women Sharing Church Leadership, Part 3

May 4, 2019

Kindy De Long

A three-day session considering a biblical "big picture" of how God creates, sees, and interacts with people not as genders, but as unique human beings. The first session explores men and women created in the image of God in partnership with each other and redeemed into a community of Christ that fulfills this creation ideal. The second session focuses on women in the Bible who used their God-given gifts to lead God's people. The third session investigates the "limiting" passages in Paul's letters in light of this larger picture of Scripture.

Join author/musician Jennifer Rundlett and author/media artist Adam Netteshiem as they share their experiences of using paintings, poems, music, and storytelling to create devotional tools for greater connection with Scripture and in turn more imaginative prayer. Guided experiences and resources to revitalize the childlike wonder and imagination in your individual quiet time and corporate worship will be offered. Come and see what the Lord has done, is doing and may yet do as we allow God to speak to our hearts while we learn to seek him through the arts.

"How to Save Your Day, Your Life, Your Children, Your Church, Your World"

Who are we as human beings? Christians, world religions, humanists, the sciences, artificial intelligence advocates—all weigh in. People of faith are in great need for a vision that meets the challenges of our time, that is intellectually and existentially defensible, and that captures our passion, hopes, and dreams.

The Incredible Shroud of Turin

The Incredible Shroud of Turin

Larry Stalley

"A Neglected Witness for the Resurrection of Jesus?"

After 40 years of extensive research, the Shroud of Turin has become the most scrutinized artifact in history. What fascinating discoveries have scientists from numerous disciplines, historians, and theologians learned from their diligent research? Does the Shroud provide remarkable evidence of the most significant event in all recorded history: the resurrection of our Lord? Might the Shroud be the “sign of Jonah” Jesus promised (Mt. 12:38-40; 16:4)? Might it have been used as an evangelistic tool by the earliest Christians? “O foolish Galatians! Has someone cast the evil eye on you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly exhibited as having been crucified?” (Gal. 3:1). An extensive PowerPoint presentation will supplement the speaker’s talk.

"The Glamorization of Doubt Among Millennials"

If you have doubts, are you no longer a Christian? Are you an immature Christian if you don't have doubts? Is there any help for doubters or are they stuck with doubts forever? We’ll distinguish between different kinds of doubt in order to best serve doubters. Through the lens of the Psalms, we'll see the benefits and limits of doubt.

Most of us stay frustrated by lack of spiritual growth. Even if we are growing, we find it frustrating to foster that growth in others. In this class you will be introduced to some simple spiritual tools called Lifeshapes. They will not only spur your own spiritual growth, but will give your church a common language to spur that same spiritual growth in others, especially in discipleship groups.

El Vergonzoso Silencio Del Rey David

May 4, 2019

Javier Villa

David experimenta el privilegio del perdón y explica el profundo sentimiento de su silencio sin darle honor a Dios ni dándole Su gloria. El también explica el remordimiento de su espíritu quebrantado, reconociendo su culpabilidad. Perdón es un alivio, es una bendición que nos trae paz a nuestro corazón avergonzado. Selah es un silencio, una pausa, es el tiempo de meditación antes del arrepentimiento. (David experienced the privilege of forgiveness and explained the deep feelings of his silence, not honoring God or giving Him praise. He also explained the remorse of his broken spirit, recognizing his guilt. Forgiveness is a relief, it is a blessing and brings peace into our ashamed hearts. Selah is a silence, a pause, it is a time for meditation before repentance.)

May 4, 2019

Doug Jacoby, Nick Zola 

In the late 1980s, the International Churches of Christ (ICOC or Boston Movement) formally split from the Churches of Christ (COC). In 1992, the ICOC was labeled by Time magazine as one of the world’s fastest growing church movements. But by 2000, the ICOC was experiencing an internal upheaval that forced it to reevaluate its identity. Today dialogue and cooperation have reopened between the COC and ICOC. This series explores reasons behind the rift and recent moves towards its repair.

Don Rose, Corrie Rose

If you were to name some foundational qualities in a godly marriage, what might leap to the front of your mind? Love, respect, integrity, fidelity, and commitment are often named—and for good reason! But what about friendship? Can we find biblical direction about the importance of spouses being friends? In our opinion, yes and yes. Hear why we believe that friendship is, indeed, a fundamental value in a godly marriage, and how you can, even after years of being married, become better friends.

We’ll also explore theological reasons for the use of art in gathered worship times, offer a variety of suggestions for its use, and provide examples (from services at the East County Church of Christ) of how to incorporate art during Sunday gatherings and beyond.
