A different learning experience.

LABS – or “Life and Bible Studies” – are designed to be experiential learning opportunities, driven by questions and fueled creative leadership. LABS are different from the “classes” you may have taken in the past because your questions and comments (not a teacher’s answers) drive the experience. 

Your LABS leaders are knowledgeable in their fields, engaging in their approach, and committed to helping you. No matter what level of Bible knowledge or experience in Christian living you have, LABS can help you live a faithful, abundant, life. Each 5-week LABS session offers a variety of experiences from which to choose. Our goal is to make the offerings so attractive that you have trouble choosing which Lab to take!

Current Offerings | April 24 - May 22| 6:30 - 7:45 p.m.

Creeds: How They Help Us Understand What We Believe  *Begins April 24*
Led by: Greg Chao
Location: Dierenfield Hall
We owe much to our early church fathers who succinctly summarized our Christian beliefs.  We will explore three creeds - Apostles, Nicene, and Second Helvetic - both their historical context and their text causing us to appreciate God's works in each generation of the Church.

Parenting 101 *Begins May 1*
Led by: Jonathan and Melissa Brown
Location: Grace Chapel
Did you know that God planned family and parenting from the beginning of time? Join Jonathan and Melissa Brown, parents to 8 wonderful children of their own, as they reveal practical aspects of how to apply truths taken from the designer of family and the master parent himself, God. We will discover what God teaches us about goals, authority, purpose, discipling and discipline and how these things speak to temper tantrums, strong wills, disobedience, puberty, responsibility and sibling relationships. Parenting is a journey, not a destination. Let’s enjoy this high calling together!

Topics include: learning what parenting is all about or how to set your goals, how to disciple your child to fall in love with Jesus, how to adjust your parenting through the three stages of childhood, and how to influence behavior and not just respond to it.
