September 22 - December 15
The Bible tells us that God owns everything. Our possessions, our money, our time - everything we have has been entrusted to us by our God. So our job is to be faithful in how we steward all that which belongs to God. What does it look like to be a faithful steward of God's resources? This class aims to get at the heart of stewardship. We will explore what our handling of money and possessions reveals about our heart, and we will seek to grow in practical ways of how to be faithful stewards in our daily lives.
The Things of Earth: Treasuring God by Enjoying His Gifts
Why did God make this world? Why did he make a world for his own glory in Christ and then fill it to the brim with pleasures--physical pleasures, sensible pleasures, emotional pleasures, and relational pleasures? The goal of this class is to offer a breath of fresh air to Christians who are burdened by false standards, impossible expectations, and misguided notions of holiness. Steering a middle course between idolatry on the one hand and ingratitude on the other, based on the book by the same name this class aims to remind us that every good gift comes from the Father’s hand, that God’s blessings should drive us to worship and generosity, and that a passion for God’s glory is as wide as the world.
In Matthew 16:18, Jesus declared that he will build his church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. But what exactly is this 'church' that Jesus promised to build? How is it meant to function? Why does it exist? What role does scripture play in the life of the church? If you desire to be able to answer these and other critical questions about the church for yourself, then this class is for you. With our bibles in hand, we will explore the great doctrine of the church and consider how it is being applied here at High Pointe.
The Gospel Project (Kids K-5th)
Despite all God had done for Israel, God’s people continued to rebel against Him. They demanded a king, going against God’s plan and ignoring His warnings about how a king would rule them. God provided Israel’s first king, Saul, but because of Saul’s disobedience, God rejected him and chose David to be king. David’s son Solomon ruled Israel with great wisdom, yet his sin led to the nation of Israel being divided into two kingdoms. Solomon reminds us of our need for Jesus—the sinless, truly wise King. Whether your child is continuing with us in Life Classes or this will be your child's first time, this a perfect time to jump into our study through God's Word!
