TREC Presents: Mid-Faith Crisis
with Tom Sweeney [Four-Week Class begins September 23]
Christians throughout history have experienced an unsettling sense, often called "The Dark Night of the Soul", that God feels less "real" than He did when they were new believers. And as they consider the events of their lives, they even start to wonder who God really is. This experience is not a detour in the life of faith, but the royal road to maturity that God takes His people on. In this small group, you will learn:
- What the dark night of the soul is, when it happens and how to identify it
- To understand and appreciate why God uses the dark night to mature His people
- How to cooperate with the work of the Holy Spirit in your own dark night
- How to support those around you passing through a dark night
Embracing the Nations
with Dave Roberts
Intercultural skills are not just for the missionary going overseas but also for every Christian who seeks to reach out in love and compassion to people from diverse cultures living around us. Understanding one another is critical in our desire to welcome, as well as our ability to live together. Within our church family, the opportunity for blessing is there for the taking as we learn to guard the unity we have in God’s Spirit, and celebrate the richness of cultures redeemed for his glory. Join us for interactive equipping that will help us better embrace the nations that are, and by God’s grace will be, in increasing measure at West Highland.
First Steps… at West Highland
with John Mahaffey
This course is for those who are exploring the next steps in their walk with Christ. You may be new to the Christian faith and have questions about the Bible, the biblical purpose of the Church, baptism and the Lord’s Supper, or the specific God-given vision of West Highland. Or you may be further along in your walk with Christ and God has led you to West Highland as your new church home. We will cover the beliefs and distinctives of West Highland in this small group setting where discussion and questions are welcome. This course is required for those considering baptism or church membership.
Act Like Men
with Jakob Koch
Act Like Men, a book by James MacDonald, will be the springboard for teaching, discussion and mutual support as we seek to fulfill our calling as men. Together we’ll learn to embrace the blessing of becoming men who build strength and joy into the lives of our wives, children, church and communities. Pastor Jakob and Paul Stimers will help us find role models that are so often missing today.
The Apostles’ Creed: Our Historic Faith Beyond the Fads
with Kevin Ricafort [for SR HIGH & YOUNG ADULTS]
Taking our cues from the Apostles from the New Testament, the Apostles' Creed contains the essential Christian confessions held by the universal Church throughout the ages. In a culture where "new is always better," and "me, myself, and I" shapes our thinking, come explore how the Apostles' Creed binds our faith to the Church body through the ages.
