LABS – or “Life and Bible Study” – are designed to be experiential learning opportunities, driven by questions and fueled creative leadership. LABS are different from the “classes” you may have taken in the past because your questions and comments (not a teacher’s answers) drive the experience. Your LABS leaders are knowledgeable in their fields, engaging in their approach, and committed to helping you. No matter what level of Bible knowledge or experience in Christian living you have, LABS can help you live a faithful, abundant, life. Each 6-week LABS session offers a variety of experiences from which to choose. Our goal is to make the offerings so attractive that you have trouble choosing which Lab to take!
LABS are held on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. following Wednesday Night Dinner.
Our February 28 - April 11 class offerings are:
What do We Believe? The Essential Tenets of ECO
Led by Greg Chao | Location: B014
Are you curious about what our new denomination (Evangelical Covenant Order of Presbyterians) believes in and stands for? We will be walking through the “Essential Tenets,” a wonderful statement that highlights the core beliefs of our Christian faith and our denomination. Join Greg Chao in a discussion of the foundational beliefs of the Christian Church and ECO Presbyterians. Along the way, we’ll answer questions, explore what our church believes, and apply it to our lives – all while looking at this strong and hopeful message of God’s love for all people.
Continuing the Conversation – a post-sermon discussion with the Preacher
Led by the Pastors | Location: Grace Chapel
What did you enjoy about last weekend’s sermon? What got you thinking? What did you disagree with? If you’ve ever wanted to talk back to the preacher, ask questions about what the sermon could have said, or just wanted to hear more about the message, then this group is for you! Each Wednesday, the preacher from the previous weekend will continue the conversation that the sermon began.
How Can I Read the Bible for All Its Worth? – A look at the Prophets and the Letters
Led by Bryan and Timberly Eckelmann | Location: Dierenfield Hall
How can we understand prophecy in the Bible? What do the Old Testament prophets tell us about God and our lives today? And how can the letters of the New Testament speak to us and to our world? Join Bryan and Timberly Eckelmann as we – with Bible study, discussion and debate –consider these fascinating sections of the Bible, the questions they raise, and the message they speak.
Note: these topics will prepare participants for the next study of the Book of Revelation, which will be offered in the next LABS session (beginning April 18).
