This course will be an in depth textual study of early Hebrew History, with strong emphasis on the first five books of the Old Testament. After covering the Judges Era, the course will survey Samuel & Kings. The purpose of this study encourages the student to see how God related to and invites individuals into a relationship.
The New Testament writings traditionally attributed to John (John's Gospel, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, and Revelation) are unique in the Christian Bible. They share similar language, style, traditions, topics and theology. They speak both as a whole and as separate writings to John's unique perspective on the personalities and attributes of God and Jesus and The Holy Spirit. This class will examine these four writings and give special attention to John's uncompromising claims to Jesus' divinity.
General Epistles are books in the New Testament in the form of letters. They are termed "general" because for the most part their intended audience seems to be Christians in general rather than individual persons or congregations. This course is designed to show students the relevance of scripture in today modern culture. Students will learn that God is not bond by time, and that His word was not only written for a first century audience but for an audience today as well.
Christian Man is a study of the role of masculinity and how to become a man patterned after God's heart. We will examine the life of David, second king of Israel, ancestor of Jesus Christ, and writer of numerous psalms. He is depicted as a righteous king, although not without fault, as well as an acclaimed warrior, musician, writer, and poet. Our aim is to teach Senior men to recover their masculine heart, defined in the image of a passionate God.
Christian Woman is both a textual and topical Bible study. Using the life stories of important women in the Bible as platforms, the study seeks to help young women explore the idea of what it means to have a true, growing relationship with God. From that starting point, the study then moves to a discussion of how to view the other significant relationships in a woman's life through a Godly lens. Because this class is responsible for girls' chapel, the students are also given the opportunity to plan and lead public worship.
Christian Worship is a co-educational class offered to juniors and seniors. The two-fold purpose of the class is to learn and discuss principles of Christian worship so that the students can then use what they have learned to lead High School chapel in increasingly meaningful ways. We will examine the historical heritage for modern Christian worship and blend those traditions with the existing skills of our students.
Foundations of Faith
This course will compare and contrast the Biblical worldview and the Gospel with the many competing philosophies, religions and worldviews. The class designed to provide students Biblical and philosophical tools to practice their faith authentically and defend it with confidence. Paul’s Epistles, especially Romans and Colossians, will form the foundation of this class. Lee Strobel’s The Case for Faith, the writings of C.S. Lewis, and popular media such as movies, music, television, and the news will also be used as resources for this class. Topics such as the Sin & Salvation, The Problem of Evil, New Age Religions, Postmodernism, Science & Faith, & the Reliability of the Bible will be addressed.
Israel’s hymnbook is a lot different than many of ours. The Psalms certainly have songs of faith and praise, but surrounding those are expressions of deep anguish, questioning, and even anger. Israel counted all of these expressions as worship. This class seeks to dive into the Psalms, all the Psalms, in hopes of discovering what it means to live your whole life, even the great disappointments, as a reflection of God’s continual presence in both the highs and lows. We hope to recover Israel’s ability to talk to God in any situation.
