We Have Rules?

Guideline Enforcer

Actually, we are just calling them class dynamics. These are in place to help you know what to expect from us, like where we are coming from. There are a couple things we expect from the class as well, but they are only to promote openness and freedom to ask questions.

Authority of Scripture

  • Everything written in the Scriptures is true and is exactly what God wants us to know.

Relational God

  • God is loving and desires a living, ongoing relationship with each of us.
  • The only way to have a relationship with God is through Jesus Christ.

Circle of Trust

  • What is shared in the group stays in the group.
  • We will not demean others with our words or actions.

Points of Courtesy

  • While we encourage the sharing of personal prayer requests, please do not use it as a vehicle to gossip about other people. Please focus on immediate family.
  • We want this to be an open group where people feel welcome. Therefore, since we will naturally gravitate to a group of friends, please continue to include others.
  • We will end at 12:00, for those who need to get kids home for naps. Everyone is welcome to mingle afterwards as nursery will be provided until church ends at 12:30.
