Note: None of the books here are really intended for a “book-study” style of class. Rather, they’d be used as a reference for a more informal “guided discussion” kind of class, hopefully with plenty of good content.
- Basics of the Christian Faith
- The Cross Centered Life by C.J. Mahaney
- Essential Truths of the Christian Faith by R.C. Sproul
- Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
- How to Live as a Christian in Today’s World (at home and in the workplace)
- How Now Shall We Live by Chuck Colson and Nancy Pearcey
- Total Truth by Nancy Pearcey
- Don’t Waste Your Life by John Piper
- Looking at Current Events as a Christian
- Well, I don’t have much for resources in mind for this one. It would be more of a build-as-we go format, and not have a lot of structure to it from week to week. But, hopefully, it would have a lot of stuff very applicable to current life.
- The Francis Schaeffer Trilogy by Francis Schaeffer (well, not quite as much)
- Topic ideas include: relativism, atheism, homosexuality, abortion, war & peace, creation/evolution, media bias, religion in schools & politics, etc.
- First Sunday plans
- Introductions for everyone; what is your faith background?
- From churchiness to new to Jesus to not sure about this faith thing to why-the-heck-am-I-in-church-anyway?
- Me? Grew up in Christian home, but didn’t take faith serious until high school. God showed me my sin & my need for a Savior. Road of plenty of ups and downs since; atheism has somewhat often been an easy temptation. But God is gracious, and reminds me His grace by keeping me all the time.
- Talk about options; choose something for topic
Young adult (think career-age, married or single, post-college, or at least that age at heart) Sunday School beginning today; meeting in library. Topic to be determined, choosing from “Basics of the Christian Faith,” “How to Live as a Christian in Today’s World (at home and in the workplace),” or “Looking at Current Events/Topics as a Christian.” Meeting in the library. Love to have you there!
