NPU SPRING SEMESTER
Sunday Evening Bible Study / 6:00pm
Beginning January 24th, 2016
Radical: This study by David Platt will challenge you to consider with an open heart how we have manipulated the gospel to fit our cultural preferences. David Platt shows what Jesus actually said about being his disciple, and then invites you to believe and obey what you have heard. Facilitated by Family Pastor Eric Elliott
Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University: Within the first 90 days of Financial Peace University (Dave’s most popular class), the average family pays off $5,300 in debt and saves $2,700. These nine lessons will teach you to get out of debt the same way you learned to walk – one step at a time. Facilitated by John Plumlee (Membership Kit Required for this class)
The Prophet Jonah: Education Pastor Gary Roberts will lead a study on obedience. Like Jonah, we sometimes think we know better than God. But in the end Jonah learned a valuable lesson about the Lord’s mercy and forgiveness, which extended beyond Jonah and Israel to all people who repent and believe.
Unseen but Certain: This study will focus on the reality of heaven and angels, as well has Satan and hell. In Unseen, But Certain, Dr. Danny Akin allows the Bible to speak clearly and authoritatively, bringing enlightenment to some of life’s most complex and commonly asked questions. Facilitated by Randy Millier.
World Religion: Lead Pastor David Murphy will help you understand about the people, places, practices and philosophies shaping today’s events. Some religions might be familiar, some strange and some you may never have heard about. Karma, nirvana, yin and yang, etc… there are many people who think of religion as a belief system practiced through faith, obedience, prayer and worship. But here are some religions that are more than just a belief in a deity – they are an entire philosophy and way of life. Explore the religions that have shaped history, civilizations and your neighbor’s views.
The Study of Acts: Youth Pastor Derrick Roberts will focus on the book of Acts and how it tells of the Church’s spontaneous expansion, from Jerusalem to Judea to Samaria to the ends of the earth. Through history and sermons, Acts testifies to the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives and our joyful call to multiply—in our relationships, jobs, communities and, ultimately, through the planting of churches.
