GOSPEL GROWTH

Gospel Growth Studies are for you. Whether young or old, stay-at-home mom or corporate executive, single or married, man or woman—studies are for your growth in the gospel. Studies give you a place to learn the Bible in a practial way and grow with others so you can become more like Jesus and are better equipped for the mission.

Current Gospel Growth Studies

The Gospel

Teacher: Jared Mitchell
Location: Auditorium Have you ever had a moment in which you were captivated and overwhelmed by some of the glorious truths of the gospel and then two weeks later, you seemed to have lost your affection for those very same gospel truths you were filled with tears of joy over? Or have you ever felt a little foggy when you were trying to share the gospel with someone or show them how to find it in Scripture? Could it also be that right now you are struggling with deep fear about sharing glorious news of the gospel? If any of these questions ring true for you, then please join me in the Gospel Growth class called: “The Gospel.” We will seek to answer some of these questions, revel in the gospel, and dive into ways we can learn to reach people with the Gospel.

Mormonism

Teacher: Daniel Mulder
Location: Café GGC is for SLC. Which means we must learn how to relate to the faith tradition that is central to our city historically, culturally, and even geographically. We might pursue friendships with Mormons without ever asking thoughtful questions about their beliefs. (This results in shallow relationships.) Or we might study LDS history and theology without ever realizing that people are more than a set of doctrinal statements. (Not surprisingly, this also results in shallow relationships.) Our goal is to become like Paul in Athens: seeking first to understand, then to be understood. This class explores the worldview and theology taught by the LDS church, preparing us for a February-March class by Will Galkin on reaching Mormons as people.

Old Testament Survey

Teacher: Jotham Manoranjan
Location: Basement Hall This is an introductory course to the Old Testament developing a framework for understanding the historical setting, context and biblical themes of each book of the Old Testament. We begin this first stretch with the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible. Course goals include placing the various books in the OT on a timeline relative to the History of Israel, understanding the historical setting of each book, understanding the context of each book: the writer, the recipients and the messages, and understanding the major biblical themes in each book while also identifying unifying themes.

Addictions

Teacher: Lukus Counterman
Location: Loft Have you ever felt driven to do continue a wrong pattern of behavior even though you knew it wasn’t good for you? Have you ever been intensely or abnormally preoccupied with something sinful – almost like an unbreakable trance? Are you suffering the negative consequences of repeated behavior, but you keep doing it anyways? Have you discovered that you need more of a substance or behavior to achieve the same response? Do you feel trapped in an unending cycle of shameful conduct? If you answered yes to the questions above, you might be an addict. If you know someone described by the questions above, you might know an addict. Addiction can be defined as having an unhealthy or harmful relationship with a mood-altering substance or behavior. And often addicts can be described by words like compulsion, tolerance, obsession, and continuation despite adverse consequences. In the Addictions class we will explore types of addictions, the nature of addiction, the intersection of trauma, mental illness and addiction, as well as strategies for treatment and recovery.
