Galatians Study Program

Monday, July 10th – 14th, 2017

As the gospel spread across the Roman world in the first decades after Jesus’ earthly ministry, conflict arose. Jews and Gentiles were believing the gospel, and a struggle over what it meant to be a Christian began. What does it mean to live under grace? Do you have to keep the Law to be a Christian? All of it or just part of it? Who is right? How will we know?

Join us for the Galatians study program, where we will work together through the Galatians Precept Upon Precept® workbook together, discuss the study with like-minded believers, and see how this important letter to the Galatians is relevant for us today.

Each day we will begin with a time of prayer, have a discussion and a video lecture based on the lesson for that day.

Trainer: Mark Sheldrake
COST: $99

40-Minute FastTrack Leader Training – Being a Disciple: Counting the Real Cost

Saturday, July  15th, 2017

These days it’s often difficult to identify any differences in lifestyle between those who profess to be Christians and those who don’t. But Jesus challenged those who choose to follow Him to count the cost. So what does true discipleship look like? What does it require of us?

Through this important study on Discipleship, you will learn what it really means to deny yourself and follow Christ, as well as learning a proven method of Bible Study that you can use to disciple others – in a group or one-on-one.

By the end of this workshop, you will feel renewed, trained and ready to join a group or begin making disciples using the 40-Minute Bible Study Series.
