Fall 2022 Marriage Group

This fall at SoLD, we will pilot a new marriage small group program, using a curriculum called "Re|engage," which helps us to examine some biblical principles for marriage and unpack with mentor couples how they interact with our stories. This is an intentional time to connect with your spouse no matter where you are in marriage. There is limited space, so sign up will be first-come, first-served! Contact Alex or Carly with any questions. Note: BOTH husband and wife will generally be required to be present, so we ask that both spouses are able to commit to the entire semester.

Human Sexuality, Sin, Sanctificaiton

Gender and sexuality are current hot topics, and it can be confusing to navigate the cultural conversation in light of biblical and confessional teaching. What does the PCA think about same-sex attraction and transgender issues? How does the Bible help us in both dealing with what it describes as sinful behavior and also loving the culture that embraces it? The PCA’s Ad Interim Committee on Human Sexuality has put out a report to help us embody both truth and love on these matters in our time, as well as to better understand how the Lord is at work in our sanctification. This fall, we will look particularly at how our confessional standards speak to issues of sin, sanctification, desire, mortification, and more. Taught by Jim Pocta and other NsP teachers. 

Registration is not required for this class.
