equipping people for life

Equipping U is designed to provide a small group experience for adults so we may dig deeper into a specific area of our faith life.

These areas are related to the spiritual disciplines of Abiding in Christ, Living By God’s Word, Praying in Faith, Building Godly Relationships, Witnessing to the World, and Ministering to Others.

As such, we offer classes each Fall/Winter and Spring semesters designed for women, men, and married adults to learn more together.

“practice these things; be committed to them, so that your progress may be evident to all”.

1 Timothy 4:15

Parenting by Paul Tripp

Teacher: Emerson Byrd
Type: Co-Ed
Room: R-12
Book Cost: $18.00
In Parenting, author Paul David Tripp unfolds a more biblical perspective on parenting than merely adhering to a list of rules. He lays out fourteen gospel-centered principles that will radically change the way parents think about what it means to raise up a child, informing everything they do as a parent. Principles include grace, identity, lies, authority, foolishness, and character.

Erasing Hell by Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle

Teacher: Phred Paul
Type: Men’s
Room: S-13

Chan and Sprinkle address the deepest questions you have about eternal destiny. They’ve asked the
same questions. Like you, sometimes they just don’t want to believe in hell. But as they write, “We
cannot afford to be wrong on this issue.” Erasing Hell will immerse you in the truth of Scripture as,
together with the authors, you find not only the truth but the courage to live it out.
