school of life & doctrine

SoLD is our Christian Education ministry. True discipleship occurs when doctrine shapes our life and deepens our confession and our practice. As Paul instructed Timothy: "Keep a close watch on your life and doctrine . Persist in this for by so doing you will save yourself and your hearers." - 1 Tim 4.16

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Sunday evening of the month for dinner and classes. Childcare is provided for ages 0-3 and classes for all ages from children on up.

Fall 2019 Adult Class

God’s mission to establish righteousness on the earth spans the pages of history. From our perspective in redemptive history, it can seem like injustice will have the last word and that God is idle to intervene. Habakkuk expressed his struggle with such a perspective in his time. But God is at work on a grand scale. Because Jesus suffered injustice for sinners, and because God raised him from the dead for our justification, justice and righteousness will ultimately prevail. The unfaithful will experience God’s wrath in judgment, and the faithful will be justified and therefore live eternally. This study will survey the Old Testament book of Habakkuk, exploring questions regarding God’s work in the world, his justice, and more.
