EFree's adult Life Training Classes seek to establish a core foundation for the Christian. Here we explore both the great overarching truths and the fine intricacies about God, man and life. Classes begin at 9:00 am on Sundays.
All our adult Life Training Classes are held on the upper level of our building. Turn left just before the auditorium doors, then right and up the stairs.
Fall 2018 Classes:
Won't You Be My Neighbor? Builds upon the previously three courses and explores the Great Commandment – how loving God deeply affects if, why and how we love our neighbor. Will revisit EVFree's "Outwards Living Plan", and how loving God moves us to love others through hospitality, friendship, and especially God Himself. Led by Pastor Jed, with teaching from Charlie Huebner, Tim Keller, D.A. Carson and others. Class time will involve a mixture of teaching and discussion. Music Room
What We Believe This course walks through all of the core, distinctive beliefs that we as a church hold. This course is required for membership, but is also very helpful for deciding if EVFree is right for you. Also a great way to revisit the great doctrines of the faith. Taught by Pastor Steve. Room 209
Look at the Book This course walks through one book of the Bible per week. A great way to catch the essential message while also seeing the great themes of Scripture. The class will begin this quarter with Matthew. Taught by Ralph Porter. Room 207
