Christian Life presents evening parent sessions, led by each of our Bible teachers, focusing on a different aspect of Bible curriculum. Open to all MPCS families, the "Living Biblically" series offers parents the opportunity to meet and engage with Bible department faculty, while also creating opportunities for parents to engage with their children over Biblical topics they are both learning “together.”
Each session will last approximately one hour. Although session topics are unique and parents are encouraged to attend all four, parents do not have to attend all sessions in order to benefit from them.
Sessions will meet from 7:00-8:00 p.m. in Dozier Hall, Room 3201.
January 20: Apologetic Thinking: What is Christian apologetics and how do we practice it?
Led by Scott Minear
Studying 1 Peter 3:15 and Acts 17:16-34, we will seek to understand a biblical definition and scriptural model for Christian apologetics, which challenges Christians to embody being Christlike in a polarized society.
February 17: Letters for Living: A Look at the writings of Paul
Led by Robby Steltenpohl
In this session, we will look at some of the theological concepts that are covered through the Pauline Epistles. We will also discuss how these concepts are applicable to your own life, and how you can apply them in your home.
March 17: Thinking and Living "Christianly": Understanding and Navigating Competing Non-Christian Worldviews
Led by Dereko Robertson
To think and live "Christianly", we must understand the competing worldviews that challenge what the Bible teaches. Many people fail to understand the underlying components of different belief systems. Unfortunately, this is often true for the Christian. This talk is designed to explore what makes up the prevalent worldviews of our day, examine how these worldviews become relevant to children growing up in the church, and provide practical solutions for Christian families to remain faithful to what Scripture teaches.
April 21: Does God Exist?
Led by Scott Minear
Does God exist? Is it possible for an all-good, all-knowing, and all-powerful God to exist with evil? Did Jesus actually rise from the dead? Attend the final Living Biblically session with Mr. Minear to discuss these questions and process the reflections and evidences Christians utilize in response to these important questions.
