Learning For Life
Sundays at 9:30 AM – 10:15 AM
We aim to use these classes to train and equip believers to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ.
Classes will be tailored to address each sphere of life. They will include teaching on topics such as: parenting, evangelism, missions, relationships, church history, Biblical counselling, theology, Bible survey, biographies, and preaching.
To raise up leaders, teachers will choose and partner with a trainee. The leader will have them teach, make comments, and reflect on the lesson. We hope to release these trained men to teach their own classes and train others in the future (cf. 2 Tim. 2:2).
Term 1 ~ 2020
Saved to Serve: Spiritual Gifts | Pastor Andrew Courtis
Not everyone in the church is the same, and God has made it this way by design. God has designed the church in such a way that it consists of people from different backgrounds, ages, and personalities. The Holy Spirit has sovereignly distributed spiritual gifts to the church for the glory of God and the good of the church. What are spiritual gifts? Have all of them continued today? Can I know what my gifts are? Once we understand the meaning and purpose of the gifts, we are to use what God has given us for the effective operation of the body. In this class, we will survey the Bible’s teaching on the topic of spiritual gifts and learn how to practically apply it to the life of HBC.
Growing in Godliness: Spiritual Disciplines | Pastor Craig Baxter
Recently I was struck by the Bible’s repeated call for God’s people to strive and labour for godliness. The writer of Hebrews tells us to “strive for … the holiness without which no one will see the Lord” (Heb 12:14). In similar fashion Paul calls his young apprentice Timothy to “train yourself for godliness” (1 Tim 4:7). The modern concept of “let go and let God” would be foreign to Paul and must be foreign to us also. Yet sometimes we can find such things as Bible intake and prayer dry and fruitless tasks. This class aims to bring back the joy, freedom and liberty of growing in godliness as we interact with several key Spiritual disciplines. Among the disciplines we will look at are prayer, personal and family devotions, fellowship, confession and stewardship. Come and participate in this interactive EQUIP class as we learn to grow in godliness together.
