The 5 Solas of the Reformation

Joe Medlin, Room 212B ~ For All Adults

The Five Solas are five Latin phrases (or slogans) that emerged during the Reformation to summarize the Reformer’s theological convictions about the essentials of Christianity.

The Protestant Reformation of the 16th century changed Christianity forever. Roused to action by the corruption and abuses they saw in the Roman Catholic church of the time, visionary pastors and leaders like Martin Luther and John Calvin spearheaded a movement that transformed Christianity and eventually led to the emergence of the Protestant denominations that exist today. 

Join Joe Medlin as we explore these five vital theological truths that impact us in history and in our spiritual life today.

Rescuing the Gospel

Doug Demosi, Room 212A ~ For All Adults

The Riveting Story of the Reformation and Its Significance Today.

The Reformation unfolded in the cathedrals and town squares of Europe--in Wittenberg, Worms, Rome, Geneva, and Zurich--and it is a stirring story of courage and cowardice, of betrayal and faith. The story begins with the Catholic Church and its desperate need for reform. The dramatic events that followed are traced from John Wycliffe in England, to the burning of John Hus at the stake in Prague, to the rampant sale of indulgences in the cities and towns of Germany, to Martin Luther nailing the Ninety-Five Theses to the door of the Castle Church in 1517, to John Calvin's reform of Geneva.

Erwin Lutzer captures the people, places, and big ideas that fueled the Reformation and explains its lasting influence on the church and Western Civilization.

Sharing Jesus Without Freaking Out

Duane Geib, Room 112D ~ For All Adults

What if you were told that evangelism is less about delivering a polished presentation and more about having a real Conversation? What if you were told God has already given you the skills you need to begin sharing the good news of the gospel today? Evangelism is less about a program and more about connecting with others as they try to understand the chaos of their daily lives.

In this class, you will learn how to connect the gospel story with your own, and how to share the story in everyday conversations with the people you know.

Explore the Bible: Psalms

Aaron Earls, Room 212-E ~ For All Adults

The book of Psalms has a broad range of content and style. New Testament writers quoted from Psalms more than any other Old Testament book. Numerous people wrote Psalms, such as David, Moses, and Solomon. The Psalms have been a source of encouragement and strength for God's people, and they still speak to us today. God's people have sung many of the Psalms during times of worship, according to the Apostle Paul (Ephesians 5:19).
