Parables of Jesus
Jesus teaches with stories. The parables compromise more than one-third of the teachings of Jesus. In this course, we will explore the parables that Jesus used to imprint memorable lessons into the minds of his audience, both then and now. Participants will learn the principles of interpreting a parable and apply the parables in the contemporary context.

Overcome: Live Beyond Your Circumstances
Sometimes the circumstances of life can feel overwhelming. Because we can’t always change them, we just learn to survive under them. Thankfully that’s not the life Christ calls us to live. We will be taking a close look at Joseph’s life to learn practical ways to live beyond the tough times. If life is weighing heavily, don’t give up. God had plans for Joseph, and He also has plans for us!
Psalms - Seeing God's Embrace
The book of Psalms is the longest book in the Bible is the Old Testament book quoted most frequently in the New Testament. The Psalms include praises of joy, laments, blessings, and thanksgivings. They are directed at God and they help us to express and communicate ourselves to Him. This study will walk you through the different types of Psalms to see that God is the only one who can truly see us through every season of our life.
The Message & The Messiah (Youth Only)
We grow up in church knowing that we should read the Bible every day and love God with all our hearts. But have you ever wondered whether the Bible is truly inspired by God? Or what it means to have one true God who reveals Himself in three persons? Join us in the upcoming season of youth equip even as we take a deeper look at the authenticity of the living Word, as well as come to a more complete understanding of the Holy Trinity and the deity of Christ.
Work and Rest: What is the Biblical Balance?
Some people work too much, others barely do the minimum to stay employed and get a paycheck. Both groups may encounter struggles in different ways. Both groups need balance. A joyful approach towards our work is grounded in our relationship with Christ, lived out in community with others, and provide a refreshing witness to the culture around us. This course lifts up the biblical mandates to work and rest, and to achieve the balance of both.
This course is suitable for those who have completed the Nurture course, or for any believer wishing to grow in the Lord. Learn what it means to follow Jesus, understand how to live as a worshipper, discover what spiritual gifts are about and find out the principles of godly stewardship. This is the course to set you on a journey of knowing Jesus, and how to honour and serve him.
