Equip Course

 

Every Christian needs to move forward in their spiritual life. One of the key ways this happens is through being taught and equipped so that the truth and power of God’s Word starts to renew every aspect of our lives. In August and September, we will be running a set of 3-week seminars, each focusing on what Scripture teaches regarding a different topic. They all aim to be biblical, practical and relevant. The workshops will run for three Wednesday evenings, from 8pm-9pm.

Our goal for this series of seminars is captured well by Paul’s prayer for his friends, “We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.” Colossians 1:9-12.

Zooming through Zephaniah
A Bible study through Zephaniah

Reading the Old Testament prophetic books can be difficult. The historical distance, cultural gaps, and theological complexity of these books can make them challenging. However, the prophets speak a timeless message – a message about God, His purposes in the world, and how we are to respond to Him. Join us as we consider how we might better profit from the prophets. In this seminar, we will consider some tips to keep in mind as we read the prophets, and we will study one prophet in particular: Zephaniah. Please Zoom in as we zoom through this powerful prophetic book.

Parenting
It’s not what you think

Steve and Anna van Rhyn will host this Equip training track where Paul Tripp, in three recorded video conference sessions, opens up the Bible to help us discover a new and better way of raising our children. Each Equip training session will involve a short welcome followed by a 45-minute video of Paul sharing his wisdom from the Bible for raising children. Thereafter, we will break out into small groups for discussion time. The sessions are entitled ‘Give up Control’, ‘Shape their Character’ and ‘Rest in God’.

Prayer, Bible reading and Spiritual Gifts

The age-old children’s song “Read your bible and pray every day” is becoming more and more real and alive to me as the years go by. Now, more than ever, I am convinced of my daily need for time spent with my Maker, the creator of all things who holds every little (and big) thing in the palm of His hand. But how exactly do I engage with Him; either as a young Christian who has everything to learn or as a more mature follower who realizes more and more that I (still) have so much to learn. Join us as we dig deeper into prayer, Bible reading, and the gifts of the Spirit. God (Father, Son, and Spirit) still has so much for us to see.
