Weekday Classes

WEDNESDAYS: EQUIPPING NIGHT

January 10 – May 2 (no meeting March 21 and 28)
Our mid-week classes are for the entire church family and are designed to equip you for life, ministry and mission. Children and middle school kids can attend special programs while adults attend one of our equipping classes. Some classes require advanced registration. Fellowship Hall will be open if you’d like to bring your own dinner and connect before classes.

 

The Parables of Jesus (Starting Point Group)
Ben Marquez; C-13/14

Parables, perhaps more than other portions of Scripture, bring us to truly consider what it means to live as members of God’s kingdom. They cause us to wonder if the gospel has made any real difference in our lives. Join Ben as he spends this semester teaching through the parables, which consist of five major themes: parables of the kingdom, parables of salvation, parables of wisdom and folly, parables of the Christian life and parables of judgment. Questions? Contact bmarquez@eastminster.org.

 

Grow Your GO

Susan Lear; C-15
You have a critical part to play in bringing the hope of Christ to the world. With 50% of Wichita unchurched and 6,600 people groups worldwide in need of the gospel, each believer is crucial to fulfilling God’s global mission! Here at Eastminster we want the whole congregation excited about reaching our neighborhoods and the nations for Christ. Launched from the inspiration of Pastor Stan’s GO Series, this eight-week session is created to educate, inspire and equip all of us at Eastminster to see the beauty and privilege of the Great Commission and to KNOW how to GO at Eastminster! Make 2018 the year you GROW YOUR GO! Questions? Contact susanlear@cox.net

Navigators: Topical Memory System
Dr. Richard Spann; C-11
This system was developed by The Navigators as a simple, easy-to-use system to help followers of Jesus memorize key verses that point to basic truths. We’ll start with six aspects of the Christian life, like making Christ the center of our life, the Word, prayer and community. The second six weeks are centered around the gospel, with topics like sin, Christ’s payment for our sins, and the assurance of our salvation. These serve to not only train us in the truth of our relationship with Christ, but they are also beneficial in explaining the gospel message to others. Questions? Contact rspann@cox.net.

Generosity: How God’s Radical Grace Makes Us Givers by Tim Keller
Rob Ramseyer; C-12. Meets through February 21.
According to the Bible, generosity is so much more than just being generous with your money. The source of generosity that is truly radical is a gospel-transformed heart that has received the costly grace of God. In this sermon series originally preached at Redeemer Presbyterian Church, Tim Keller and Abraham Cho look at what it means to be generous through service, through relationships, through hospitality, through the privileges and power we hold, and lastly, through our wealth.  Please join Rob as he facilitates discussion through this seven-week series. Questions? Contact raramseyer@gmail.com

The Book of Genesis
Thursdays, 10:30 a.m.; C-15. With David Hitchcock. For retired couples and individuals.
In this Winter quarter, we continue our study of the creation account given in Genesis, chapter one. Our DVD study is led by Dr. Chuck Missler, described as a “genius” in showing and explaining the harmony between open-minded scientific thought and discoveries and the biblical description of how creation took place. His background of 40 years as a theologian, engineer and physicist enables us to grasp that there is no essential conflict between the wording of Scripture and true science – they agree with each other! We invite you to join us in this astounding and exciting study. Bring your Bibles, along with a desire to see the Pre-Patriarchal period in a new way – we promise, you will find yourself blessed!
