East Cobb Campus Summer Studies 2019

Alpha: Exploring Questions of Life and Faith

Alpha begins a conversation around the big issues of faith and unpacks the basics of Christianity, addressing questions such as Who is Jesus? and How can I have faith? Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. A part of the class is a weekend retreat with a focus on the Holy Spirit. Study guides will be handed out at the first class session.

Sundays | 9:30-10:30am | April 28 – July 7 | F322 | Facilitated by Tony Rogers, Joe Johnson, and Leon Monroe

The Armor of God

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.

The Enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.

Wednesdays | 9:30-11:30am | May 29 – July 3 | B118 | Facilitated by Pam Palermo and Millie Atkinson

Hebrews

Those who follow Jesus have endured persecution throughout history. The author of Hebrews encourages believers to endure in spite of circumstances. Another lesson in this letter is for believers not to abandon their faith in Jesus. In this book, we see the teaching of the Old Testament through God’s revelation in Jesus Christ. The Jews who chose to follow Jesus had difficulty understanding how to live faithfully in this new way. We see how the coming of Christ changed the Jewish people’s practices of faith and living. The new covenant supersedes the old covenant all because of the coming of Jesus.

Thursdays | 10-11:30am | May 30 – July 18| B112 | Taught by Jonathan Lawson
