Are my kids getting enough vegetables? Do they do enough activities? Have I read enough Bible stories to them? Memorized enough scripture with them? Do they do enough with the Youth Group? Am I a good parent? Am I raising a good kid? If you’re anything like us, you question and second guess every move you make as a parent. But what if parenting isn’t about checking all of the right boxes in order to raise a good kid? What if parenting is about the relentless and rescuing grace of God? Join us in this class, as we allow Christ to free us from the burden we place on ourselves, and live into the fullness of the Gospel as Parents. Whether you are a Parent, Grandparent, God Parent, or Prospective Parent, all are welcome to join this class as we read and discuss Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family

Pugliese Class: Effective Discipleship While Persevering in Faith
A Study of the Minor Prophet Hosea: “The prophesy of Hosea comes first in the Biblical order of the Minor Prophets. Rightly so. It is not the first of the twelve either to be written or spoken, but it is first in regard to its message, being what I have called ‘the second greatest story in the Bible.’ No Christian can doubt that the greatest story in the Bible is the story of the incarnation, life, suffering, death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. But the story of Hosea is second precisely because it is an anticipation in pageant form of Christ’s story.” (James Montgomery Boice, The Minor Prophets, Vol.1: An Expositional Commentary, Hosea-Jonah, page 13, 1983, Baker Books). Our class will investigate the message of Hosea to see how it reflects the message of the Gospel.

More than ever, effective discipleship while persevering in faith is essential to the health of anyone who proclaims to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Our time in His word is what helps prepare us to take on the challenges before us. The world is in need of the gospel. The hope that it offers is life giving. Are we ready to take this message into the world? We must live into the gospel if we are going to be voices for the gospel. During this session we will study 2 Thessalonians.
