Plan and Promise (Year 2 begins again January 3, 2021) 

We are teaching through the entirety of the Bible in a four-year window (see link below for a detailed scope and sequence and schedule). This class is primarily taught by the pastor of discipleship, Nate Meece, along with other pastors and elders. Plan and Promise traces the storyline of God’s people from Adam to Abraham to the establishment of the nation of Israel and then culminated in the New Testament Church. This weekly study meets every Sunday during first service and is designed to take participants through the entire Bible in four years. A devotional guide is available below and at the Information Center to help you stay in the Word and prepare you for the teaching.  You are welcome to join us any time for this class, and the latest class recording is available to you for several months, as listed below the following materials:

Fellows Program

The LifePoint Fellows program is an intensive discipleship track that exists to provide a framework aimed at equipping mature believers for ministry, both corporately and in their individual lives and families. It is a 36-week program (Sept.-May) that takes students through topics from church history to systematic theology to hermeneutics to worldview and the life of the church. It is a literature-oriented curriculum with an expected investment of 3-5 hours of reading a week followed by a 90-minute class on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 p.m. You can download a copy of the class overview or scope and sequence for more information. If this is something that interests you, please contact the church office or Pastor Nate directly. Space is limited and fills up quickly.

Hermeneutics

We offer a 16-18 week course on Biblical interpretation. It meets weekly and requires 3-5 hours of reading and working through Biblical texts, taking into account cultural and literary context and seeking appropriate application to today’s world. Contact Pastor Nate if you are interested.  Classes are capped at 8 people and space is limited.
