The Gospel of John
Mondays at 6:30PM in Building 500
Beginning January 17
Teacher: Dr. Clark Peddicord
In order to live out our faith in the modern world, we need to study the Bible for more than just a spiritual “vitamin shot.” Consequently, this class will most likely be different than any you have ever encountered. The Gospel of John is the fourth book in the New Testament. It was written in the simple and plain Greek language of the early Roman Empire and seems modest and unpretentious on the surface. But underneath are swimming incredibly complex and challenging questions. Some of these represent the deepest issues confronting faith in Christ in a post-Christian or even anti-Christian society. This course will be an amazing time together.

Speaking the Truth in Love to LDS People
Wednesdays at 6:30PM in Building 500
Beginning January 26
Teacher: Mark Parson, Vice President of Truth in Love Ministry
In the Treasure Valley, many of us have friends and family who are LDS (Mormon). Sadly, we are often confused or unaware of the beliefs that drive the stories of our LDS neighbors and friends. This class will spend two weeks giving a foundation on LDS belief and practice, followed by three weeks on how to engage in conversations with LDS people with truth and love. Mark Parsons, the Vice President of Truth in Love Ministry, brings an expert and current perspective to this conversation to equip us for ministry among our Mormon friends, family, and neighbors.
