Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family
Instructors: Carly Taylor and John Gourleyo
Class begins January 8, runs for 15 weeks
Are my kids getting enough vegetables? Do they do enough activities? Have I read enough Bible stories to them? Memorized enough scripture with them? Do they do enough with the Youth Group? Am I a good parent? Am I raising a good kid? If you’re anything like us, you question and second guess every move you make as a parent. But what if parenting isn’t about checking all of the right boxes in order to raise a good kid? What if parenting is about the relentless and rescuing grace of God? Join us in this class, as we allow Christ to free us from the burden we place on ourselves, and live into the fullness of the Gospel as Parents. Whether you are a Parent, Grandparent, God Parent, or Prospective Parent, all are welcome to join this class as we read and discuss Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family by Paul David Tripp. The book is available on Christian Books.com or Amazon.com.

Christopher Class
Instructor: John & Rhea Christopher
Class continues January 8
A Study of the Minor Prophet Hosea: “The prophesy of Hosea comes first in the Biblical order of the Minor Prophets. Rightly so. It is not the first of the twelve either to be written or spoken, but it is first in regard to its message, being what I have called ‘the second greatest story in the Bible.’ No Christian can doubt that the greatest story in the Bible is the story of the incarnation, life, suffering, death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. But the story of Hosea is second precisely because it is an anticipation in pageant form of Christ’s story.” (James Montgomery Boice, The Minor Prophets, Vol.1: An Expositional Commentary, Hosea-Jonah, page 13, 1983, Baker Books). Our class will investigate the message of Hosea to see how it reflects the message of the Gospel.

More than ever, effective discipleship while persevering in faith is essential to the health of anyone who proclaims to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Our time in His word is what helps prepare us to take on the challenges before us. The world is in need of the gospel. The hope that it offers is life giving. Are we ready to take this message into the world? We must live into the gospel if we are going to be voices for the gospel. During this session we will study 2 Thessalonians.

Christopher Class
Instructor: John & Rhea Christopher
Class continues July 10
James Montgomery Boice indicates, "Few portions of Scripture have been so challenging to me as the Minor Prophets. It is because they speak so directly and powerfully to present sins. It is just not possible to read them carefully without having one's life challenged and without determining to go out and live differently." We will continue our study of the Minor Prophets this session.

Instructor: Pete Pugliese
Class continues July 10
Effective Discipleship While Persevering in Faith Summer Session: As we work through 1 Thessalonians, chapters 4-5 we will be looking at how we as Christians need to live in a culture opposed to Christianity.

LIFE Groups

God created us to enjoy relationships! We are all born with a deep need to know and be known. God’s design for us has wired us to want vibrant and growing connection with Him and each other, so it’s natural that we grow deeper in our faith and in abundant, joyful living when we live life together. LIFE Groups are a place to learn from God’s Word and each other, and gives us a place to belong.

Living in community in the form of groups has been a longstanding value of Memorial Park Church. We offer two pathways to help you get connected: by starting a LIFE Group or joining a LIFE Group. Our active list of groups changes often, so if we don't already have a group that meets your availability, consider attending a starter group during a Life Group Launch!
