Theme: Study of the Book of James (with Francis Chan)
True faith produces fruit. A faith without action and without life change is ultimately a dead faith. The book of James speaks to the realities of a living faith in Jesus - the kind of roll-up-your-sleeves and get-your-hands-dirty discipleship that is born out of an authentic relationship with the risen Lord. James writes to believers who know suffering, who've faced trails, and who ultimately desire a deep relationship with God.
Teacher: Dan King
Theme: Christmas Focus / Cultures in Conflict
Upon completion of their study of Romans, the Journey class will spend the remainder of December with Christmas Relfections. In January, they will begin a study on Cultures in Conflict. The culture in Corinth conflicted greatly with the lifestyle that the Apostle Paul proclaimed to those who chose to follow Jesus. In the same way, the church today is called to proclaim the gospel in every environment, showing the world what it looks like when we give our lives to Jesus.
