Nehemiah:  A Case Study of a Fully Dedicated Person of God

September 12 – November 7 (9 weeks) | Module 2

Led by Bard Hebard. A classic work on how to have an impact for God was written about 425 B.C. It was written by a man who was involved in business and politics in the ancient Middle East. He not only possessed an exceptional philosophy of leadership, but he lived it out as well. His book bears his name: Nehemiah. What Nehemiah had to say about leadership speaks to the same issues we face today whether in the work place or the home. As we go through the book we will find timeless and valuable guidelines that will help us build essential characteristics so that we too can have a significant impact for God.

Series Descriptions

Re-Discovery Series

Our Re-Discovery series classes are for you to meet our pastors and leaders, hear what we believe, know our vision for discipleship and discover along the way how God is prompting you to grow in your faith.  The Discover Laurelwood class is an introduction to our church and what it looks like to be a disciple of Christ. The other classes will unpack each area of discipleship in greater depth. Each class not only shares our faith and vision, but also practical steps for spiritual growth.

 

Classes are offered periodically at the 9 a.m. hour as announced in the e-bulletin. While you may not take all the classes at once or in any particular order, we encourage you to plan on eventually attending them all as a way to get to know your church but also to get a clear vision for your own discipleship journey.

Deeper Life Series

God has a desire that you become stronger and spiritually more mature. The Deeper Life Series provides solid Bible exposition through various books of the Bible to move you deeper into the Lord and the LBC Discipleship Process. These Classes are designed to provide increasing spiritual stability and strength in your life as an adult at LBC. Special attention is given to the verse by verse explanation of what God is teaching within each paragraph of every section of the Bible Book. Then these truths are applied specifically and personally to your life situation. Subjects and topics are covered when they are raised by the order of the message found in the book being taught. 

 

Each class is designed to stand alone” so that an adult at Laurelwood can step in at any time to be fed from Gods Word. Sunday morning classes begin at 9 am, which corresponds to the same time as our Youth and Childrens Sunday School and nursery to assist those with kids. We invite you to join us as we go deeper into Gods Word together.

Daniel | 12 Weeks

Taught by John Wecks

 

Relax! God’s got this! He’s in charge of everything all the time including every single election to government offices whether by mail, by absentee ballot, or whatever means in whatever country. In this book we will thrill over the fact that God’s unwavering promises always come through in the smallest detail for the whole world and our own lives. We learn how to thrive in enemy territory. We will watch what happens when we trust the Lord in impossible situations. We will learn from Daniel, “a man highly esteemed by God” (9:23).
