Christian Education - Spring 2019
The Scriptures exhort us to,"...love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself" (Luke 10:27, ESV) and that, "All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work" (2 Timothy 3:16). It is for this reason we gather for Christian education to learn more about God, His work in the world, and how we are commanded to participate in the means to God's end.
Join us Sunday mornings at 9:15 AM as the Bible comes alive in our studies. In our led discussions, we seek to learn what the Bible teaches and how it applies to our lives. Whether we are carefully combing through the scriptures or studying the literature and history of the faithful who have come before us, we seek to exalt the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit through their continuing work.
Many Christians struggle with comparison, covetousness, and complaining. But the Apostle Paul was content in plenty and in want. What was Paul's secret, and how do we cultivate contenment in our lives? In Contentment, Melissa Kruger considers what it really means to be content: to place our trust in our good and sovereign God. God's love for His people is unchanging, and He is using every detail of our lives to shape and fashion us into the image of Jesus Christ. As we look back to the cross of Christ and look forward to the hope of heaven, we will discover that ultimate contentment is found in Him.
It can be hard to be content. Our culture encourages us to covet and consume in ways that are contrary to biblical teaching. In Contentment, Melissa Kruger defines what biblical contentment is and what it means for the Christian life. She helps Christians recognize how the cultivation of contentment is fundamentally rooted in understanding and resting in the person and work of Jesus Christ. In Him, we find ultimate contentment.

Everyone has questions about faith. Does God exist? How can I know? Is this life all there is? Is the Bible true? Is it historically accurate? How can a good God allow pain and suffering? Doesn't science refute Christianity? Hasn't the church committed so many injustices? Can I be a Christian and not attend church? Isn't the church full of hypocrites? These are all serious questions that need to be answered.
In this original course created by RUF campus minister Tim Mulder, we will discuss common questions and objections your non-Christian friends have about Christianity. We will draw on biblical truths and scriptures in combination with wisdom from resources like Tim Keller's Reason for God and Making Sense of God to provide a reasonable, rational defense of the faith.
