We all lead very busy lives, but our busyness makes it even more necessary to spend daily time with God. Spending time in meditation and prayer each day has been shown to have real physical and psychological benefits, and helps center us, calm us, and call us forward as Christians. This course is designed to give us a week in meditation with God — of listening as He speaks to us, of meditating on His Word (reading it and keeping it in our hearts), of talking to Him about the concerns in our lives, of thanking Him for our many blessings, for asking for forgiveness of our sins and the sins of others, and worshiping Him. Price: $30 ***This is an online course, meaning you can participate at the time of day that works best for your schedule. Course materials will become available at Noon Central on the start day, and you should plan to spend an hour or two (whenever you choose) every day interacting with the course and on the discussion boards.***

Each of us is called to share our faith in obedience to the Great Commission. The Second Greatest Commandment (Matthew 22:36-40) tells us to love our neighbors as ourselves. By combining these two commandments from our Lord, we are able to share our faith with those around us in a natural way. During this course you’ll learn about ways you can share the Gospel that are both comfortable for you and effective; it is all about sharing the love of Christ by building relationships with those around you and allowing the Holy Spirit to work through you as your relationships progress. During the course you will learn about why and where you should evangelize and how to go about it, with plenty of examples and encouragement along the way.
