ADULT EDUCATION – 2022 CLASSES NOW OPEN
Sundays, January 16 – February 27
9:15-10:15 am, Room A
The Holy Spirit resides within every Christian believer. Through the Spirit we come to know and experience Jesus! Yet the Spirit is the least understood Person of the Trinity. In this 7-session class taught by Pastor Carol Peters, we will learn to know the Holy Spirit, recognize His voice, and understand His work. (This class is a repeat of the one offered on Thursday mornings a few years ago.)
Sundays, January 16 – 30
10:30 – 11:30 am, Room B
Advances in medical technology have blurred the boundary between life and death. We are faced with complicated decisions informed by competing definitions of concepts like “care,” “compassion,” and “what is best for the patient.” This three-week class taught by Dr. Wayne Wilke will develop principles from God’s Word to help individuals in their decision-making at life’s end.
Sundays, February 6 – 27
10:30 – 11:30 am, Room B
In this book, Tim Keller – whose trademark style addresses both religious and secular readers – explores one of the most difficult questions in life. Why is there so much pain and suffering in the world? And how do we handle it in a way that won’t destroy us, but could actually make us stronger and wiser?
Facilitator Pastor Joel Bjerkestrand will show how Keller attempts to unify the complex questions and experiences related to suffering. He explores the philosophical problem of suffering, then the rich biblical teachings on the subject, and, finally, the actual experiences of dealing with suffering in the most practical terms. This book is a wonderful resource to everyone who wants to prepare themselves or others to face the inevitable prospect of pain and suffering.
There will be four sessions (four weeks) on the book, with suggested reading 100 pages each week after the first session.
Books can be purchased through Amazon in either Kindle, hard cover or paperback. If preferred, Nancy Berry will order a paperback copy for you if you email your request to her by January 4, 2022 at Cost will be $16 cash or check to Nancy Berry.

Come join Pastor Jeff Ruby on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm and Thursdays at 10 am as we explore four of Paul’s letters: Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians. These are the “heart” of Paul’s letters, and so applicable to us today!
On Wednesday evenings, come join us for dinner at 5:45 pm in The Gathering Place. Then we will move to Room B from 6:30-7:30 pm to explore Galatians and Ephesians; on Thursdays at 10 am we will study Philippians and Colossians. All classes will be held in Room B. Come to both or choose just one; the sessions will not be live streamed or recorded, as they are in person only!
THURSDAYS, January 6 – March 10
6:30 – 8:00 pm, in The Fellowship Hall
Have you had the opportunity to take The Truth Project series in the past? If so, a follow-up series called The Engagement Project by Dr. Del Tackett is now available.
Dr. Tackett’s previous worldview teachings helped us AWAKEN to God’s Truth. The Engagement Project is the next step in the journey. These 10 tours will again take us on a marvelous quest of seeking the face of God. This will lead us to understand where we are in God’s Meta-Narrative and the incredible vision He has granted to us as His representatives on earth. It will show us that He has entrusted the primary work of the Kingdom to the common, everyday Christian. It will change each of our lives, radically transform our families, and, by God’s grace, turn the world around us right side up. Led by Jan Robinson, the class runs from January 6–March 10 at 6:30 pm in Fellowship Hall.

THE POWER OF WORDS with Ted Lowe
SUNDAY February 20, 2022
9:15 – 10:15 am OR 10:30 – 11:30 am, Fellowship Hall
“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” We’ve all heard that children’s rhyme, but it’s not really true, is it? Words can hurt us. They have the power to build us up or tear us down . . . especially words that come out of the mouths of those closest to us.
You look to your spouse, your family—the people who know you best—for emotional safety, security, and encouragement. Your spouse looks to you for the same. So, what can you do to maximize the power of your words in order to build up your spouse and make your marriage the best it can be?

About La Casa de Cristo's Adult Education
Grow in Faith through the Church
The world-renowned author, preacher and evangelist, Billy Graham, spent his life delivering the gospel message to more people face-to-face than anyone else in history and ministered on every continent of the world. His sole purpose was to share the good news of Jesus Christ to everyone he met, whether individually or in a stadium packed with thousands.
Through classes and special presentations offered at La Casa de Cristo, our teachers, with great humility, also choose to share their own experiences and knowledge with all who are interested in learning more about God and His purpose for our lives.
We have been living by faith during these uncertain times and look forward to the time when we can gather together to continue this journey called life. God’s Word reminds us that we are not alone on this journey. Wherever you are in this journey, you are invited to participate in the Adult Education classes that will be offered both online and in person as soon as we can in the months ahead.
