Shabbat Classes
Spring Quarter 2017
(April 8th to June 17th)

Orientation to The Harvest:

The Harvest Vision-Missions, Core Beliefs, & Core Values

Instructor:  Pastor Mark McLellan

This class is for everyone who wants to know who we are and what we are called to do as a community of faith. We explain our mission and vision for the future along with our core beliefs.  Every believer should know and understand what their communities stand for and are committed to doing.  A well-informed membership is better focused and equipped to accomplish the greater good of the Kingdom of God. We are excited to share our community’s incredible spiritual DNA.  We are Messianic, we are Charismatic, and we are committed to proclaiming and advancing the rule and reign of God, which has come to us through His son, Yeshua the Messiah!  Come and get an introduction to the core values, core beliefs, and mission and vision that God has given to this your community!

 

Weekly Torah Portion

Instructor: Dr. Randy Craig

Yeshua said that “Man should not live by bread only, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness (II Tim. 3:16).  When these words were spoken, the scriptures that they referred to were the Hebrew Scriptures, the TANAK, the foundation of which is the Torah.  The Torah is frequently quoted in the apostolic scriptures, New Testament, and, in fact, serves as the foundation of a very large percentage of what were have learned in our journey through the traditional western church. We will be studying the weekly portions that correlate with the Torah Portion that we read in our Shabbat Service.  Our goal is to study to show ourselves approved unto God, rightly dividing the Word of Truth (II Tim 2:15).  Please come join us for this important study of the foundation of our faith.

Text: The Bible (the weekly Torah portion). A Torah reading cycle can be acquired in the office.

 

Young Adults - Junior and Senior High (ages 12 through 18)

Instructor: Jamie Schmidt

Welcome to Think University

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking”- Albert Einstein

To parents: Are you at ease with the world that awaits your child? Have we simply taught our children what to think without teaching them how to think?

To the young adults: If you are what you eat, then is your character formed by how and what you think?  Have you ever wished that the adults around you would really listen and hear you out?  Have you ever felt frustrated that you are unable to convey your desires, thoughts, and ideas to your family, friends, and teachers?  Would you like to have more influence, stronger arguments, and sounder ideas..  Do you know truth, and can you communicate the truth, even to the staunchest opponent? 

Well, we would like to spend this quarter learning how to think critically, how to strengthen your biblical worldview, and apply those truths to everyday matters.  I want to hear your ideas, consider your thoughts and help you lay a foundation on how you think and how you share your ideas and prepare you to influence those around you for the glory of God.  We will discuss truth and how to recognize it, to use wisdom and intellect in forming our ideas. We will learn to welcome and provide wise counsel, We will learn how to use logic, reason, and biblical truths to win arguments and influence people. We will examine everything from pop culture to ancient architecture for hidden symbolism, hidden messages, and the agendas behind these things.   We will put into action steps to take back the culture from around us, how to strengthen our ties with one another and how to win the culture war without losing the hearts of our detractors.

“Invest a few moments in thinking. It will pay good interest." - Author Unknown
