Renovation of the Heart

Wednesdays, September 09 - December 09, 6:30PM - 8:00PM

The focus of this class is spiritual growth. In short, we aren't born again to stay the way we are. But how many times have we looked around us in dismay at the lack of spiritual maturity in our own lives and in the lives of those we love? The good news is that Jesus doesn't intend for that to be the case.

In this class we will use Dallas Willard's video series Renovation of the Heart to see and experience how God changes lives by a process that "brings every element of our being, working from the inside out, into harmony with the will of God or the kingdom of God."

With lead singer and songwriter Mark Hall’s 18 years in youth ministry, the band’s message remains rooted in the student services he has led on a weekly basis since 2001, at Eagles Landing Baptist church near Atlanta. The songs start as messages for his 400 teenagers and their families. With boldly honest, hard-hitting lyrics, the band continues to challenge, strengthen and pour into the body of Christ, giving listeners a fresh, relevant perspective on loving God and loving people.

Tim Hawkins: Live

Friday, April 1, 2016, 7:00PM

Tim Hawkins has been meticulously crafting a no-bones, no-bull comedy show that entertains the entire family. His approach to comedy can best be described as one part gifted and two parts twisted. And the three parts set him apart. His stand-up is surgical and honed to perfection, bringing to light the brokenness of human nature while marveling in its hilarity. In his own gracious words, "If you can't laugh at yourself, laugh at other people." His musical dexterity and knack for parody stand on their own, as he deftly rattles off everything from Dylan to Aldean to brilliantly weird original songs.

Agora Fellowship

New Semester Begins September 2015

Informational Meetings
Sunday, August 9, 5:30 p.m., The Commons Coffee Shop (Level 200) or
Sunday, August 16, 9:00 a.m., D-102
RSVP to Caitlin Pomeroy at 402.483.6512 or cpomeroy@lincolnberean.org

Leadership for the Common Good

In ancient Greek, the agora was a gathering place in the middle of a city that served as the center for commerce, politics, education, the arts, religion, and civic life. What happened in the agora shaped the society as a whole. Not much has changed. Today the ideas and practices that flow from the academies, churches/temples/synagogues, businesses, houses of government, and studios profoundly change and shape the society in which we live.

Purpose
The Fellowship equips young professionals to integrate their Christian commitment and vocation enabling them to impact their professions for God’s kingdom and to be agents of cultural renewal.

Description
The Fellowship is a nine-month intensive program designed to provide young professionals with a solid base of theological, ethical, and cultural understanding. Through weekly readings and discussions, monthly gatherings, and one-on-one mentoring with a mature person in their profession, Fellows will develop as influential leaders in their professions who can serve effectively as ambassadors for God’s kingdom and contribute to the common good locally, regionally, nationally, and even internationally.

Content
The Fellowship addresses six key questions. During their nine-months, Fellows will wrestle with:
· What is God doing? (Theology)
· What am I to be doing? (Calling)
· For what purpose am I to be doing it? (Goal)
· What environment am I doing it in? (Culture)
· What can I accomplish? (Influence)
· How am I to be doing it? (Ethics)

Who should apply?
Men and women, 25-35 years of age, working in fields including higher education, law, medicine, the sciences, media, arts, government, and business/finance. The applicant should (1) be currently employed full-time, (2) have at least a year of working experience in his or her profession, (3) possess clear and strong Christian commitment and character, and (4) desire to use his or her position of leadership to influence the culture for God’s kingdom and the common good.

Fellowship Requirements
· Complete weekly readings
· Attend and participate in weekly discussions over the readings
· Attend monthly gatherings to meet with guest speakers or go on excursions in and around the city of Lincoln
· Complete 2-3 written assessments over the course of the nine months

Benefits
· Build a theological foundation in work, culture, and faith
· Become aware of the cultural and civic needs unique to the Lincoln community
· Develop close relationships with other young Christian professionals committed to influencing the culture through their vocations
· Opportunities for follow-up training and resources after completion of the program

Cost
Annual book fee of approximately $200
Deadline to apply is August 21.

Tuesdays, September 15 - December 08, 9:00AM - 11:30AM

Questions? Contact Shereen at lbctuesmorning@gmail.com.
Choose from one of these electives:

Moms Uplifting Moms (MUMs)//Facilitator: Laurie Harms
Just for moms! We offer a place to gather with other mothers of young children to learn how to seek God’s best for yourself and your family. You’ll be led through The Best Yes, a workbook/DVD study by Lysa Terkeurst. Together we’ll learn to make wise decisions in the midst of endless demands.
Homework: 5 daily lessons every 2 weeks
Cost: $10 (workbook provided)

Like a Rock: 1&2 Peter//Teacher: Kathy Anderson
He was the disciple whose early walk with Christ was characterized by impulsive highs and dismal lows, yet Jesus named him the Rock. Come delve into Peter’s final message to the saints and uncover the truth that turned this volatile fisherman into a rock-solid leader. We’ll learn together what it takes to stand firm in a world of suffering, persecution and persuasive lies.
Homework: 30-60 min/week
Cost: $10 (notebook included)

The Song of Solomon, A Love Story // Teacher: Sara Eyster
In most of the modern world, romance is thought of as something that happens before marriage. In the Song of Solomon romance is lifelong response; an act of each mate faithfully fulfilling the other’s needs. Since God invented the romance of love, marriage and sexual intimacy, let's hear what He has to say!
Homework: 30 minutes/ week
Cost: $10 (workbook provided)

A Woman’s Heart: God’s Dwelling Place // Facilitators: Kathy Bowman & Claudine Lehman
This class will run September 2015 – April, 2016.
Register HERE for this study.
Featuring Beth Moore on DVD this study explores the building of the tabernacle, the significance of its intricate design, it's pivotal role in God's eternal plan, the grand fulfillment of its purpose by Jesus Christ, and it's meanings for our walk with God today. Our time together will be enhanced by discussion and prayer so regular attendance is essential.
Homework: 5 daily lessons every 2 weeks, 30-45 min/lesson
Cost: $30 (workbook + registration for both sessions)
