Discipleship Hour 2018

Start: Sun, September 2   End: Sun, November 4 | 11:00am - 12:00pm | Naperville Presbyterian Church

ALL CLASSES follow the Sunday Worship Service 

Martin Luther once wrote: "This life, therefore, is not righteousness but growth in righteousness, not health but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise; we are not yet what we shall be, but we are growing toward it; the process is not yet finished, but it is going on; this is not the end, but it is the road; all does not yet gleam with glory, but all is being purified.” The conviction that we all need to continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ, no matter where we are on our journey of faith, undergirds our Discipleship Hour at NPC. We have great classes for everyone, from kids to adults, to help us along this road. Please join in!


Chasing After the Wind: A Study of Ecclesiastes   Taught by Chris Hodge

Finding meaning and purpose in life is an essential human pursuit. It can also be a frustrating human pursuit. Join us on an 8-week survey of Ecclesiastes, during which we will think about wise and unwise ways to live the life God has given us.


Counterfeit Gods   Taught by Mikal Ranneklev and Dave Veerman

You must not have any other god but me” (Exodus 20:2)—God commands our allegiance. We were made by God and for him, and we only find our true purpose and fulfillment in him. Yet our culture offers enticing alternatives. Many choose one or more of those options. Others, even professing Christians, unconsciously, imperceptibly, are drawn to them. No wonder so many of us feel lost, alone, disenchanted, and resentful. In this class, we will discuss these counterfeit gods, using Tim Keller's best-selling book, of the same title, as our guide. We will see how the Bible reveals the unvarnished truth about our faith and our hearts’ desires and learn how to identify and reject these counterfeits in order to stay focused on God and God alone.
