Living for God’s Glory, Book Study
Taught by Elder Bob Reymond
Room 43 in the Lower Level of the Sanctuary
The theological system known as Calvinism is often caricatured or simply dismissed as a relic of the past. But as Dr. Joel R. Beeke shows us in this comprehensive treatment, Calvinism, also known as Reformed theology, is biblical, God-centered, heartfelt, winsome, and practical. As such, it is uniquely suited to help Christians fulfill the purpose for which they were created-to live to the glory of God. With the gifted help of eight contributors, Dr. Beeke traces the roots of Calvinism and sets forth its doctrinal distinctives, then explores how Calvinists live out their beliefs in every sphere of life, from their private devotions to their service in the church, from their marriages to their careers, from politics to ethics. Through the examples of John Calvin himself, the Puritans, and other Calvinists of the past, this God-exalting belief system emerges as a timeless guide for Christian living.
Sermon on the Mount, Video Discussion
Facilitated by Elder Joel Thomas
Room 44 in the Lower Level of the Sanctuary
In the face of scorn and disbelief, Jesus Christ announced His kingdom. In the face of hatred and death, He demonstrated its power. In this twelve-lecture series, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson explains how the sermon on the mount equips us to live a kingdom life in a fallen world. Dr. Ferguson highlights Christ’s exhortations to live counter culturally, to examine the deeper implications of God’s law, and to rest in the knowledge of God as Father for the cure of all our anxieties.
Hebrews Part 2
Taught by Elder Mike Preston
Room 45 of the Lower Level of the Sanctuary
Most readers of Hebrews find it among the most challenging books of the New Testament. In addition to its train of thought being clothed in language and allusions drawn from the cultic background of the Old Testament the obvious questions about authorship, why and to whom it was written, and when have no verifiable answers. In spite of these problems and the resulting interpretive challenges, the book makes a most significant contribution in dealing with what must be regarded as the most important question which constantly faces man, i.e. how can we approach God? Hebrews presents the most thoroughly detailed and convincing answer to this problem of any book in the New Testament, while at the same time giving us the clearest discussion of the Christian approach to the Old Testament of any of the New Testament writers.
Taught by Pastor Tony Felich
Room 46 in the Lower Level of the Sanctuary
Since all of the redeemed will be worshiping God in heaven for all eternity, there is no question as to its importance. But what does the Bible say about the way in which we are to worship God? Why do we worship the way we do? What are our corporate and individual responsibilities in worship? Is Redeemer’s style of worship an outmoded oddity in this day and age? Is there an aesthetic legitimacy to our worship? In this class we will examine these and other questions regarding the matter of worship in the 21st Century. There are 13 lectures in this class, questions and/or discussion about any of the lecture material are welcome in class.
