CORE Elective: Biblical Understanding - Gospel of Matthew

Sundays, September 09 - December 16, 9:00AM - 10:15AM

Purpose of the Series:
The purpose of the Core Classes at Lincoln Berean Church (LBC) is to ground God’s people in those fundamental portions of Scripture and theology that clearly outline who God is, his intention in creating humans, and to outline his ongoing salvific work on behalf of his creation through his Son, Jesus, and the empowering presence of his Holy Spirit.

Purpose of the Class:
The Gospel of Matthew has been one of the most treasured writings of the Christian faith. In fact, throughout the history of the early church, Matthew’s was the most widely read and frequently used Gospel. In it we find the story of Jesus’ birth, the Sermon on the Mount, critical teachings on the Kingdom of God, Jesus’ rebuke of any sense of earning God’s favor, the Crucifixion, Resurrection, and the Great Commission. Needless to say, this Gospel has much to teach us about being disciples. During this class we will study Jesus’ life and words, seeking to be with him so that we may become more like him.

Teachers: Ryan Harmon, Dan Zach, and Ben Miller

Location: D104. No cost. Registration requested.

CORE Elective: Making Sense of the Old Testament

Sundays, September 09 - December 16, 9:00AM - 10:15AM

This class intends to help those who struggle to understand the Old Testament and those who simply want to spend more time studying it. While the Old Testament seems like a disorganized, confusing collection of stories, genealogies, laws and prophecies that has nothing to do with us, this study will assist the student in discovering the unifying themes that help one make sense of the Old Testament and understand why it's relevant for Christians.

Location: D102. Cost: $32 (for both books).

- Section Communities -

So, what is a Section?
Sections are made up of people who connect weekly by sitting in the same section of the auditorium when we gather together as the church. These mid-sized groups help to make our big church feel smaller.

We are not looking to add anything to your busy schedule. We simply want to make the time you spend at church a bit more intentional. We believe this will provide opportunities to cultivate more meaningful relationships.

Eventually, each section will
have a leader to coordinate
and care for that section. One
of the ways to connect with your section will be through a monthly section gathering. Your section leader will communicate these types of opportunities specifically to your section.

--
We are not all the same, we get that. In fact, we celebrate that! Each seat holds uniquely-wired people with different personalities, gifts and life stories.

The Introverts: Please don’t worry! This isn’t a program that everyone is forced into. Sit where you feel most comfortable and only join in the opportunities that are right for you.

The Roamers: We know you like meeting new people and seeing new places. Feel free to keep moving around, and if you would like deeper relationships, find
a section that you can regularly connect with throughout your travels.

The Same Seat Sitters: We know that’s your seat and that you have not moved for years. You’re not alone. Most of the people in your section have been there for a while too. Take the time to say hi, learn a name and even write it down, and be sure to say hi next week.

The Empty Seats: They are there for a reason and it’s not just
to provide a buffer zone around you. It’s actually a reminder of the mission we are all on with Jesus. Keep praying and watching. At some point, that friend or family member might actually be sitting there.

Haven’t seen your section yet? We might still be in need of potluck hosts and Point Leaders.
If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Josh at jluse@lincolnberean.org.
