EMOTIONALLY HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS

Have you ever wondered why we recycle the same problems in the church or ministry year after year? It’s been rightly said that 85% of Christians are stuck, stagnant in their spiritual lives. We are among that number, especially as it relates to grow practically into more loving people. We believe 8 skills mentioned below are foundational for building healthy churches where our love for one another is so distinct that the world will know Jesus is truly alive today. Our hope and prayer is that we will learn these skills so well that they become second nature to us and that we carry them into our church, workplace, family, school, and neighborhood.

This course will mainly utilize the materials developed by Peter and Geri Scazzero. The course includes an 8-lesson curriculum workbook and 40-day daily office devotional guide. Each online session will last about 2 hours and include discussion, video clips, Bible study, and skill building activities. The 8 sessions are broken down as follows:

Session 1: Take Your Community Temperature Reading

Session 2: Stop Mind Reading and Clarify Expectations

Session 3: Genogram Your Family

Session 4: Explore the Iceberg

Session 5: Listen Incarnationally

Session 6: Climb the Ladder of Integrity

Session 7: Fight Cleanly

Session 8: Develop a “Rule of Life” to Implement Emotionally Healthy Skills

  • Facilitators: P Greg Lewis, Dr. Ruth Yoon, and P Steve Stasinos
  • Meeting Days and Times: Tuesdays from 7-9pm CDT
  • Orientation: Tuesday, June 28, 7pm CDT

COVENANT: THE BACKBONE OF THE BIBLE

This course is a biblical study on covenant. The covenant theme is central to the message of the Bible. When we say that the Bible consists of two parts of the Old and New Testament, the word “testament” is another term for “covenant.” The covenant concept occurs at important junctures throughout the Bible. It defines God’s relationship with humanity, Noah, the patriarchs, Israel, and the Davidic dynasty; it is also at the heart of God’s relationship with the rebuilt “Israel” and the whole world. Jesus Christ is called “the mediator of a new covenant” (Heb 9:15). In fact, Christian theology recognizes that the biblical covenants form the backbone of the Bible. The uniqueness of the biblical covenant is that God took the initiative on our behalf. He sovereignly enters a covenant with creation, out of his grace. God reveals himself in history and persistently works out his redemptive work by making covenants that are grounded and fulfilled in Christ.

In this course, we will study major covenants in the Bible: The creation Covenant, the Noahic Covenant, the Abrahamic Covenant, The Mosaic Covenant, the Davidic Covenant, and the New Covenant. We will deal with the following questions: What is a covenant? What is the uniqueness of each covenant? How do different covenants in the Bible relate to each other? How do they relate to Christ? When we have a deeper understanding of the covenant in the Bible, we can grow deeper in the knowledge of God and in relationship with our Savior. Through this course, Bible teachers will be equipped with the big picture of the Bible and have more confidence in Bible teaching and Bible message preparations.
