Emphasis will be placed upon understanding the origins and evolution of many of the institutions and beliefs of today’s Christian denominations and churches. “The Story of Christianity” by Justo Gonzalez will serve as the background text for the course.

Instructor: Pastor Adam Welch

A Tale of Love: Exploring the Bridegroom Heart of God

Dates: Nov. 12 – Dec. 9 (5 weeks)

Times: Mondays @  6:30 PM

Cost: $60

One of the major themes that courses through the pages of the Bible from beginning to end is the story of the extravagant heart of God and his undying love. Before time began, the Father promised his Son a companion that would receive his affections and respond back in holy love. God is on pursuit to win our hearts and fill us with love that culminates in an eternal matrimony of undying passion. As the people of God we are called into the romance story of the ages. This course will dive into the incredible reality of the wedding paradigm and look at how God has relentlessly sought a people to be equally yoked to Himself.

Instructor: Pastor David Comer
