Hard Sayings of Jesus

Maybe, hopefully, you have read words from Jesus and thought, "These are so good. I love what Jesus has to say." For the most part, this was the feeling of his disciples and the other folks who followed him during his ministry. In this course, though, we'll be looking at the harder sayings - those that are less pleasant, more difficult to understand, and probably don't make for very good wall hanging quotes. As we dig into these words, we'll do our best to understand what Jesus meant when he said them as well as we can, and we'll also look inward and analyze ourselves. When we read or hear things from God's Word that we don't like or are hard to hear, how do we react? How should we react? God willing, as we do so, we'll learn that even the hard sayings of Jesus are acts of love from a Savior who cares very deeply.

Schooled | See the Truth

Jesus used a brand of logic that, to those who challenged him, seemed uncommon and remarkable - and it was, though not for the reason we might expect. Jesus wasn't a great debater who knew how to trick and manipulate. He was just...right. All the time. In this series, we'll look into 4 examples of the uncommon logic of Jesus. We'll see that this logic - again, uncommon not because it is odd, but because it is purely correct in a world that is woefully misdirected - offers more than just a victory over foolishness. It offers hope, love, and purpose to those to whom Christ speaks it.

Flat Earth | A Whole Family Bible Class

The church (that is, the organization) and the scientific community have, for one reason or another, had a tenuous relationship throughout history. This isn't one side or the other's fault - it is just the way it has been. It results from different approaches being taken within the two communities. 

The good news is this: both communities have valid approaches. The bad news: neither seems to want to be patient and listen. One of the most unique challenges the church will face over the next several generations is the challenge to work with science, not against it, while holding onto the truth.

Singular Truths | Faith Alone

The Lutheran reformation had as a theological rallying cry Luther's bold words: Here i stand, I can do no other. This course will look at those truths on which he stood: the four "alone" statements of the Reformation: Faith alone, Scripture alone, Grace alone, and Christ alone. Let's examine what these lonely things have been separated from and why they can be considered singular, essential truths.

The idea of "reformation" is large in the plots of many films, and on this weekend when the Protestant church is celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation, it seems like a fun idea to explore. We'll look at short clips and full films all arranged in a way that guides our discussion on the value of change & reform - for the individual, for the institution, and for the world.

Seminar: A Neighbor in Need (Helping the Homeless)

  • Illumine Church

Homelessness (and poverty in general) are not far-away problems. They exist right here in York County. Some estimate that over 400 people in Rock Hill alone call undeveloped, wooded areas in this city their homes. For many, many reasons, it's incredibly difficult for many of them to create a more secure living arrangement.

Helping people who are in this kind of a bind is also very difficult, particularly when trying to find long-term solutions that reap exponential benefits (as opposed to short-term bandaids.) As you seek to understand and care for those who are homeless, we hope you'll find this seminar valuable. We'll have experts and organizations on hand to speak, teach, and answer questions about what each of us can do to help our neighbor in need.

In order to spread the word and make sure the community is aware of the work Illumine does (and the ways they can be involved with it) Illumine's goal is to canvass 1,500 homes each month. These are door-hanger-style canvasses, so there's no knocking on people's doors. It is a great way to support Illumine, get to know the other canvassers, and plant seeds that can grow into real faith and relationships.

Different Paths, One Destination

It's not uncommon to hear people suggest that all religions are basically the same - different paths that lead to one destination. Without question, there are similar themes and ideas that are found in all of the major religions that this planet has seen, but are they all the same? If the goal of religion is to help people approach and connect to God, do they all accomplish this goal equally? Do all of them accomplish this goal, period?

In this course, we're going to take a comparative look at various religions, doing our best to objectively determine their differences, effectiveness, and subsequent value. If you've ever wondered about what religions other-than-yours are teaching, this will be a great class for you.

This midweek Lenten series walks through the final days of Jesus' life using several interactive stations each week.

Nexus | Middleman

Christ is the centerpiece of history. Every thing that happened pointed to him, and everything that has happened since has been because of him. All of the plans and intentions that God had in creating the universe meet all of the hopes and futures that humanity lives for in his cross. As we look forward to the celebration of Easter, we'll take these weeks to focus on the one who made it happen.

Easter Camp (for Kids!)

  • Illumine Church

Calling all kids from K4 - 5th Grade! Formatted much like our Science Camp (except that it takes place in the afternoon) we'll be having tons of fun this April Fools Day at Easter Camp. Kids will experience crafts, outdoor games, a collaborative art project, the story of Jesus' death and resurrection (at a kid-friendly level), and a fun do-it-yourself style snack. 

Easter Camp is a great way for kids to interact and for parents to gain an afternoon that can be spent resting or getting things done. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call (803)810-9398. See you at Camp!

Saw It Coming | Sacrifice

The Old Testament is full of signs that pointed toward Jesus. It's hard to fault the people who lived in the midst of these signs for missing the big picture - it's hard to see the forest when you're standing next to one of the trees. We, on the other hand, aren't limited by our context in history. We can look back and see the ways that the Old Testament prefigured the coming Messiah and showed exactly who he would be and how he would do his work. 

How does this help us? The more clearly we see that God made direct, specific promises about the Savior and then proceeded to keep them perfectly, the more confident we are the promises he has made to us. This gives us security, hope, and an contagious spirit of contentedness as we live.
