- THIS CLASS WILL RUN FOR 10 WEEKS -
Ascend is an assimilation class designed to introduce you to ct|church. If you are new and/or are interested in getting involved, or would like to become a member of ct|church, we encourage you to take this course. (This class is also open to those who call ct|church their home church, but who've been able to take Ascend on Sunday mornings due to serving/scheduling conflicts.) Ascend is packed with information, everything from the history of our church to the vision of it's future. You will have the opportunity to check out the different ministries we offer and learn how to get involved so you, too, can make a difference.
THE CIRCLE MAKER
led by Cindy VandeVoort
According to Pastor Mark Batterson in his book, The Circle Maker, 'Drawing prayer circles around our dreams isn't just a mechanism whereby we accomplish great things for God. It's a mechanism whereby God accomplishes great things in us.' Do you ever sense that there's far more to prayer, and to God's vision for your life, than what you're experiencing? It's time you learned from the legend of Honi the Circle Maker---a man bold enough to draw a circle in the sand and not budge from inside it until God answered his prayers for his people. What impossibly big dream is God calling you to draw a prayer circle around? In this powerful study, Batterson helps you uncover your heart's deepest desires and God-given dreams and unleash them through the kind of audacious prayer that God delights to answer.
GOD WANTS YOU WELL
led by John Owens
Healing is in Christ's Atonement. Jesus died for our health just as much as He died for the forgiveness of our sins. This has to be the foundation of our faith for healing. Many Scriptures relate the healing of our bodies and the forgiveness of our sins in the same verse. Jesus went about healing all who were oppressed of the devil and told us to do the same. Jesus hasn't changed, it's the people who represent Him who have changed. Health is something everyone wants. Billions of dollars are spent each year trying to retain or restore health. It is a basic desire of all mankind. Yet, religion has told us that God is the one who wants us sick. It even tries to make us believe that sickness is a blessing. That's just not true. God wants you well.
