Until you understand your death and resurrection into Christ (Gal 2:20), you will not consistently walk in the resurrection power of Christ. Our classes are for anyone wanting to learn how Christ exchanged His life for yours and how to live as a new creation in Christ. While our topics vary, our passion is to present the mystery of the gospel so that all come to live from their resurrected life in Christ.
Our Life in Christ classes are more than acquiring new information. Our classes are personalized and ministry oriented to invite the renewal of the Holy Spirit for emotional and mental healing which results in lasting change
As always, we use simple illustrations, diagrams and handouts along with some books to help you see what God is saying. Through practical application and group discussion, you will learn to walk by faith instead of by sight or feelings or intellect or will-power.
Information never transforms; it just puts you to work. Revelation alone transforms and empowers you to live out ‘Christ in you, the hope of glory!’

Unlock the Power to Forgive Yourself
Self-loathing is a subtle and deceptive form of punishing yourself through self-judgment, which often results in self-sabotage. Paul not only accepted God's total forgiveness for persecuting the church but also forgave himself the moment he knew God's forgiveness. Unforgiveness toward yourself causes you to draw away from God and miss out on His comfort and grace to forgive yourself. Join other believers to learn how to receive God’s love, rest in Christ’s sacrifice for sins and shortcoming, and to rely on the Holy Spirit for renewal and lasting transformation that enables you to forgive yourself just as God in Christ has forgiven you.
Finish Your Fight with Fear
Fear is one of the most powerful and debilitating emotions. The fruit of fear is worry, anxiety, stress, and panic attacks. Irrational fear is hard to explain to others, and many don’t understand how to help.. Unfortunately, the generic solution to read your Bible more, pray more, and believe more rarely produce the needed peace. When these efforts fail, it is defeating and even harder to reach out for help because of false shame. We invite you to join others in an understanding environment to learn the roots of fear and how God’s perfect love will cast out your doubt eliminating worry, anxiety, stress, and panic attacks.
Forgiving Your Way to Freedom
Discover the three typical reasons believers, despite their best efforts to overcome, continue to struggle with the embers of anger or a blanket of depression. Jesus said you would know the truth, and the truth would set you free. Often, we continue to struggle with anger and depression because we are trying to set ourselves free through the arm of the flesh. Join other believers to learn God’s proven way to overcome both anger and depression through the indwelling life and power of Christ. The same Spirit that raised you from the dead will heal and set you free anger and depression through the truth of who you are in Him and who He is in you.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Leader’s Training Class
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a normal reaction to abnormal experiences and events. In this class, you will learn how to recognize and identify the symptoms of PTSD. You will come away from this class equipped with the tools to respond to the immediate need of one suffering from PTSD/trauma and with resources to aid in addressing the long-term needs of these valued members of our community. When the church responds confidently without hyper spirituality or law-based answers, we help those struggling under the weight, pain, and grief of trauma to receive the Father's comfort and help. As the body of Christ, we need to be the first to respond with grace, compassion, and love.
