Living in the Riches and Power of the Gospel
Ben Marquez; C-13/14. Meets March 8 – May 3
The greatest problem that every believer, young and old, will face in this life is sin. As believers, our sin brings about feelings of guilt, shame, condemnation and an overall sense of God’s displeasure with us. Many of us believe that God loves us, but we are not fully convinced that he likes us. Join Ben for this seven-week class as he explores how the riches and power of the gospel free us from the power of sin and allow us to know the pleasure and goodness of God.
This class is open to anyone, and is also one of our Starting Points, designed for those who are new or looking to connect. Learn more about Starting Point here.

The Book of Galatians
Thursdays, 10:30 a.m.; C-15. With David Hitchcock.
In the book of Galatians, the churches Paul established had become strong churches. Yet they were severely affected by the false teaching of the Judaizers. Paul deals with their false doctrines and their attacks at his apostleship, and shows clearly how Christianity cannot be mingled with Jewish laws and circumcision. The true purpose of the law was to point to Jesus Christ, and the gospel makes no distinction among the Jew, the Greek, the free man, the slave, nor male nor female. Studying this book shows that following our Lord and his teachings is much more than observing the do’s and don’ts of mere religion. Come join us to make this wonderful discovery!
