Shabbat Classes

Summer Quarter 2019

(July 6th to September 14th)

Sharing Jesus (Without Freaking Out)

Instructor: Senior Pastor Mark McLellan

You were born for this. God hardwired you—yes, you—for this. I'm talking about sharing Jesus with others.

What if I told you evangelism is less about delivering a polished presentation and more about having a real conversation? What if I told you that God has created you to bring glory to himself by sharing Jesus with others, and that you don’t need years of training to obey what he already made you to do? God created you for his glory to advance his gospel with the gifts, talents, and opportunities he gave you. You live at this time in history for a purpose bigger than yourself. In these pages you will read how to connect the gospel story with your story, and how to talk about that story in normal conversations with people you know. No gimmicks. Nothing clever. No need to freak out. Just you, Jesus, and others—in conversations that matter.

Weekly Torah Portion

Instructor: Dr. Randy Craig

David, a man described as a man after God’s own heart, said in Psalm 19 that in keeping the Torah there is great reward. In fact, his last comments to Solomon his Son in I Kings 2 exhorted Solomon to walk in God’s ways. He was telling his son that true courage and his future prosperity had to do with obeying the Torah of Moses. As we study the Torah, we are obeying the exhortation that David gave Solomon.

Most of the Spring Quarter will be spent studying the book of Leviticus, or Vayikra, meaning “and he called”. And what was it that he called? He had previously called Israel to himself, and now He called once again to provide a way for Israel to dwell with Him. Holiness was defined. A way of life was ordained for the community. Teaching was given about the education and training of the priesthood. Instructions were given as to how Yahweh was to be worshiped. Vayikra is about redemption, and the desire of Yahweh to dwell with his people and to have His people draw near to Him. Much of what is revealed in the pages of Leviticus give understanding of the Writings and the Prophets leading ultimately to our redemption through Yeshua. We are admonished in II Timothy to “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.” Come study with us this Spring Quarter as we not only complete our study of Leviticus, but also begin our study of Numbers. As David described so many years ago, there is great reward waiting for you as you study God’s teaching and instruction as revealed in the Torah.

The world is a strange place and so often as youth it is easy to feel like you are in the wilderness alone. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a GPS to tell you every day where to go and what to do next? In this class we are going to come together in relationship and see what Yeshua has in store for each one of us. Through God’s word, we will discuss how to find our way through our own wildernesses. Come join us and see where Yeshua’s GPS takes you…
