April 7: Strategic Evangelism
Even though most Christians sincerely desire to share their faith with their neighbor, many feel ill-equipped. Author Stephen Parker will present a model to apply a strategic approach to personal evangelism. His Strategic Evangelism model will equip you with skills to help you become a better Front Yard Missionary.

9:00am Class


Topic: 1 Chronicles and 2 Chronicles

Teachers: Teaching Team

Description: The prophetic expectation of the Jews returning to Judea from Babylonian exile was that Yahweh would dwell once again among them; the city and temple would be rebuilt under a purified priesthood; the messianic king would be enthroned; and the nations would flock to Jerusalem to worship Yahweh and live under his peaceful rule. Nearly two centuries had passed, and none of that had happened. The author of Chronicles reshaped the stories of David, Solomon and the kings of the past to remind his people of their heritage and to provide a message of hope for the future, based on Yahweh’s enduring faithfulness to His covenant.

9:00am Bridging the Gap Class

Topic: The book of Romans

Teacher: Tim Santa Barbara

Description: We are “bridging the gap” of the giant chasm between the brain and the heart by walking verse-by-verse through the book of Romans. All are welcome!

Location: Room 33F

10:30am Class

Topic: The book of Acts

Teacher: Don Kuugelberg

Description: What might it have been like to be present in those first thrilling days, weeks and months of the early church, when God began a work that was unprecedented? Acts is the extraordinary record of the significant people and events that the Holy Spirit used to shape the early church. The same Spirit lives in believers today, the same God calls followers to expand His church and the same basic problems still arise within the church. But the same power available then is still available now to change the world.
