LIFE CLASSES

What are Life Classes?

“Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6-7
Life Classes are semester-long classes designed to equip and establish believers (both youth and adults) in various aspects of Christian life and doctrine. Multiple classes are offered on Sundays at 9:00 am in the spring and fall, while only one class is offered in the summer.

Fall 2018 Life Classes (September 16 – December 2)

THE GOSPEL PROJECT – IN THE BEGINNING (grades K-5)
If your children have not yet been involved in The Gospel Project during LIFE class time, or have picked up anywhere along the way, they will not want to miss out!  We are beginning again at the very beginning of this Christ-centered, chronological journey through Scripture. Kids will discover how the gospel unfolds from Genesis through Revelation.
KNOWING GOD (grades 6-12)
This semester the students of High Pointe will take time to dive in and work through J.I. Packer’s book, Knowing God. There is a difference between knowing about God and knowing God through the context of a personal relationship. Echoing the book, this class is designed to show students who God is and how we can relate to him. 
REFORMATION THEOLOGY
For the last 500 years, Protestant churches have gladly embraced key doctrines from the Reformation. However, many remain largely unaware of what the Reformers taught or why it matters. This class will take an in-depth look at Reformation theology. What did the Reformers actually believe and teach? What were the key doctrines confessed during the Reformation? And why is that significant for us today? Topics will include the authority of Scripture, the grace of God in salvation, justification by faith alone, the glory of God, and the priority of preaching in corporate worship.
 
SPORTS AND COMPETITION
Paul says in 1 Corinthians 10:13, “So, whatever you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” “Whatever you do” inlcudes the way we interact in and with sports and competition. Taking what we know from Scripture about God and his image bearers, how do we apply it to our lives as we relate to sports? Whether you watch sports, play sports, or parent a student involved in sports, this classs will address every level of involvement one could have with sports and competition. Join us as we learn to navigate through a “sports-obesses” world from a biblical perspective.
QUIEN ES DIOS? 
Describir a Dios es una tarea eterna. De hecho, conocer a Dios es una tarea imposible… a menos que Él se revele a sí mismo. En la Biblia encontramos que Dios nos ha mostrado quién es Él y cómo es su carácter. En esta clase estudiaremos los atributos de Dios descritos en su Palabra. 
THE BOOK OF HEBREWS
God intends to bring us face to face with the person and work of Jesus Christ in all of Scripture. In Hebrews, God intends to remind us of the reality that Jesus is better than anything else we might be tempted to abandon him for. Have you ever been tempted to return to old ways of thinking, old practices, or old sinful ways, especially during times fo great difficulty? Join us as we are encouraged from Hebrews to demonstrate that Jesus truly is better than anything else as we persevere in faith.
