The Life of David
What a guy! From shepherd boy to warrior to King of Israel, David stands out as a larger-than-life-figure and the “man after God’s own heart.” Yet for all the storied success, his life is riddled with contradictions: victories and set-backs, good choices and regrets. Aided by his own ample reflections as recorded in Psalms, we will look at David through the people he encountered: his best friend; his wily boss; his traitorous son; his wives and lovers. As current and exciting as a modern tabloid, we will explore David’s life and hear his heart with fresh insights.

"The Sent" - What is a Missional Church?
For six weeks, Dr. Daniel Ahn will take us on an exciting journey as we explore what it means to be “The Sent” and to be a missional church. We will learn about God’s global mission in both a centrifugal way (go), and a centripetal way (come). We will be reminded of God’s mission from the Old and New Testaments with an emphasis on how the Holy Father sent the Holy Son as a missionary, and how we are sent as missionaries in His master plan. In this regard, Daniel will also highlight that the place where we stand, live, and work is our mission field - "mission from everywhere to everywhere", and "mission by everyone for everyone."
For most of us, life is busy and loud. We rush from place to place, make long to-do lists, check Instagram and email hourly. The spiritual disciplines of silence and solitude are challenging for us to practice. And yet we desperately need quiet spaces if we are to receive the abundant life that Christ promises. This class, led by Dr. Kerilyn Harkaway-Krieger, will examine how Christians from past and present approach these disciplines, and will offer time for self reflection and experimentation. Class participants will be invited to try incorporating silence and solitude into their weeks, and to reflect on what they have learned by making space for God in these ways.
