- Tackling Your Kids’ Tough Questions: Grounding Our Children in Faith. (Sept. 10 - Oct. 15) Teacher - Christopher Barnes, FLC #201
There are two things challenging about the questions that our children have: They are really tough! 1. They can think of some things that we might never think of. And they think of questions for which we have never yet found an answer. 2. We may know an answer, but how do we explain this on a level that a four year, six year or even a ten year old can understand? In this class we will start with a few key questions that children often ask. But more importantly, we will open up the floor for questions that you may have been hit with. I trust these six weeks will give you a game plan for answering the tough questions so that your children can have confidence in God and His Word going forward!
- A Big Screen Perspective: Old Testament Survey (Sept. 10-Oct. 15) Teacher - Pastor Erwin Klingenberg, FLC #202
For some of us, our knowledge of the Bible is like a refrigerator door covered with post-it notes, each containing an important message but there is no coherence between them. For some it’s like reading a Dictionary; a lot of important pieces of information but no thread to the story. This class will help you make sense of all those pieces. Pastor Erwin will give you a file cabinet containing major folders into which you can insert your individual file folders. If you want to be able to summarize the Bible on a table napkin, this will give you a way to do that. (This Survey will focus mainly on the Old Testament)
- New Testament Greek I (Starts Sept. 10) - Teacher - Mike Hagedon FLC#203

- The God Who Is There DVD series (Sept. 10-Dec. 10) - Teacher - Elder Kevin Westbrooks FLC#201
Most people--even most Christians--do not have a basic working knowledge of the Bible. How can we understand the story of God--and our part in it--when we're not familiar with it? In this basic introduction to faith, D. A. Carson takes you through the big story of Scripture to help you know what you believe and why you believe it. Cost $12 for optional book.
- God In Our Midst DVD series (Sept. 10-Dec. 3) - Teacher - Andy Stang FLC #202
How does an ancient tent in the wilderness of Sinai relate to our relationship with God? The description of the tabernacle, God’s Old Testament dwelling place, spans sixteen chapters of the Bible. Yet many of us pass over this extended description without understanding its significance. In this series, Rev. Daniel R. Hyde encourages us to consider this “tent of meeting” (Ex. 27:21). By studying the particulars of this first tabernacle, we will better understand Jesus, the One who dwelt, or “tabernacled,” among us (John 1:14). Cost: $2.50 (pdf copy) or $12.00 for optional book.
Wednesday Night Class 6:30pm
- EPHESIANS: Teacher - Pastor Eric Naus - FLC #201
Join pastor Eric as we continue an interactive Bible study through the book of Ephesians! This well-loved book explores the astounding depths of God’s grace, and shows us how the gospel should impact our church, our families, and our everyday lives. We hope you’ll join the discussion!
