2018 LIFEtime Electives

Book of Exodus, January 14 to the end of May (11:15 am to 12 noon)

  • Open to all age groups, this class is part of the ongoing Scripture Press series. The focus of study will be Exodus. Key themes will include the call of Moses; the Exodus; Mount Sinai; laws of the covenant; and the tabernacle. Also, the story of the Exodus will be related to the New Testament message of redemption and freedom. The greatest spiritual dividends will come to those who can be at all or most of the classes. However, the class is open to those who can only step in on occasion.
  • The class will be led primarily by Pastor H. Strauss. Location: Church Lounge

Anabaptism, February 4, 11, and 18 (11:15 am to 12 noon)

  • As a whole the evangelical church has placed less of an emphasis upon its history when compared to our Catholic or Orthodox brethren. In doing so we miss the chance to experience the richness of belief and the encouragement of the example set by or forerunners in faith. The Anabaptist tradition is rich and stimulating. This three-week course will examine the foundations of the Anabaptist reformation (in the 500th year of the Reformation). What was happening in the medieval world that precipitated this cataclysmic event and who were the first leaders who became convicted even to the point of death? What impact should this have on the lives of Anabaptist believers today?
  • The class will be led by James Dobson, whose history studies focussed on Anabaptism. Location: Room 207.

Free English Conversation Classes, January 14 to May (9:30 am to 10:45am).

  • The Basic class will provide practical topics and vocab to build conversation competence for newcomers to use in daily life. The Intermediate class will build vocab and understanding of English through use of the Bible. We will also talk about cultural questions.
  • Also, more volunteers are needed as conversation partners or teachers in both classes.  No experience needed! Further, opportunity exists to host newcomers or international students for a meal or a holiday.
  • Contact Lori at (639) 317-4584, email at: or The Intermediate Advanced Class will be in room 211 (board room) and the Basic Class in room 220, located in the far wing of the building.
