Becoming Life-Long Followers of Jesus Christ
At Holy Trinity, our hope is that every Christian would grow into a mature disciple of Jesus. Once the love of God in Jesus Christ draws us into life with him, we are moved to give him our whole lives – our hearts, minds and bodies. We long to live with him as Lord!
Learning to live with Jesus as Lord is a life-long process. But where do you start? That's why we developed Foundations. Foundations consists of essential courses offered on Sunday mornings between worship services and are designed to equip you to be a life-long follower of Christ.
Over a three year period, we offer the following essential classes:
- Jesus for Everyone (What is at the heart of the Christian faith?)*
- The Story (Reading and Understanding the Bible)
- What Do We Believe? (Understanding the Apostles Creed)
- Learning to Pray (The Lord’s Prayer)
- Faith and Culture (The Mission of the Church)
- A Reasonable Faith (Apologetics)
- Exalt: A People of Praise (Living as Worshippers)
*Required for membership
Sunday morning foundations resumes in Fall 2018
Praying with Purpose
Led by Paul Adams (Tower Chapel)
Prayer is one of the most practical expressions of our faith and it is one activity that every Christian has in common. Reflecting on select prayers from Scripture, we will learn new ways of seeing how God changes our world and us by our prayers. Questions we will address include: What does it mean to pray in Jesus’ name? What did Paul the Apostle pray for? Are there any conditions for answered prayer? How do my prayers intersect with God’s providential control?
Paul's Letter to the Galatians
Led by Gil Greggs (Courtyard Classroom)
In his letter to the church in Galatia the Apostle Paul is at his passionate best. Fighting against heresy, laziness and self-justification Paul brings his readers back to the one true Gospel of freedom in Christ Jesus. Join us as we explore this sometimes abrupt, passionate and compelling letter!
Open to kids K-5th, meets during the Foundations Hour in the upstairs Kid's classrooms. Children can expect a snack, games, and lots of memory verses and Bible competitions! They will learn how to use their Bible for all its worth including finding books of the Bible, memorizing Scripture, using a concordance, treasuring up God's Word in their heart, and much more!
This class will focus on analyzing culture. We will focus on popular media and discuss how to critically analyze them--what is this saying about the world? What does it say about us? Relationships? How should we respond to it?
