The Meaning, Mission, and Method of Gospel Marriage // Led by: Pastor Chris Hodge and others (Starting Feb 22nd) *
Whether relatively new or a seasoned veteran, it is always helpful to revisit how scripture defines the meaning, the mission or purpose of marriage and sound biblical methods (strategies) to accomplish them. This five-week class seeks to inform, encourage and motivate every couple to more beautifully reflect gospel joy and freedom in their marriage. (This class would also be helpful for couples or individuals contemplating marriage.)
Your Work Matters to God // Led by: Dave Veerman and team (Starting Feb 22nd) *
Jobs, employment, career, calling. . . whether blue or white collar, employee or employer, politician, parent, or preacher, work engulfs a huge portion of our lives. Early on we learn that an important adult responsibility is to earn a living, to have a career. So we move in that direction, choosing a course of study, writing a résumé, and filling out job applications. As Christians, we also learn about discovering “God’s will.”
In our five sessions, we will be looking at what the Bible says about work, jobs, career, and calling and the application implications for our lives. Our topics will include why and how we choose a line of work or specific career, what makes a job “Christian,” how to deal with issues, ethics, and conflicts in the workplace, and more.
Discover NPC // Led by: NPC Elders (Starting Mar 15th) *
We want to be a church where people can thrive and experience authentic relationships. During this 4-week class we'll get to know each other better and talk about who we are and what we believe. Discover NPC is a prerequisite for membership at NPC. Whether you're ready for that step or not, this class is a way to help you explore and see what we're about. Class dates: March 15 & 22, April 5 & 12, 2017.
* Childcare for infants & walkers will be available for class participants. Advance registration is required.

None Like Him: Ten Ways God is Different from us (and why that's a good thing)
God is self-existent, self-sufficient, eternal, immutable, omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent,sovereign, infinite, and incomprehensible. We’re not. And that’s a good thing. Our limitations are by design. We were never meant to be God. But at the root of every sin is our rebellious desire to possess attributes that belong to God alone. Calling us to embrace our limits as a means of glorifying God’s limitless power, Jen Wilkin invites us to celebrate the freedom that comes when we rest in letting God be God.
