Core Classes


Core: [kawr, kohr] the central, innermost, or most essential part of anything.

In Fall 2014 we offered the first of our "Core Classes." Each class meets 11 weeks and will be offered two times per year, similar to how college classes are offered. 

We call them "Core Classes" because we believe these classes are essential for training men and women to become what God has called all believers to be, "Disciples Making Disciples." 

In Spring 2015 two additional courses were added - "Spiritual Disciplines" and "An Overview of the Old and New Testaments" along with "Foundations of the Faith." In Spring 2016 "The Church - Ecclesiology" was offered and this fall (2016) we are adding "How to Share Your Faith." Additional courses will roll out with a total of 6.

All classes are being offered within a three year time frame. We have designed it this way so that everyone will be able to complete all of the "Core Classes" in a short period of time. It will also allow those who are in the Military to be able to complete all the classes within the typical time frame they are stationed at Ft. Knox.

Our desire is for all adults that are part of Severns Valley to complete all of the core classes. We are very excited about how God has led us to offer these classes and can't wait to see what He does through them.

Practical Praying
Led by Dr. Bill and Sheri Langley

Is there any word more intimidating than the word “prayer?” As followers of Christ, we are taught that prayer is indispensable to the Christian life. Through prayer we get to know God and have our needs met. Yet, most of us would admit we don’t really know much about how to pray. If that’s your story, this class is for you! Join us as Pastor Bill and Sheri Langley teach an exciting course called Practical Praying!

How to Share Your Faith
Led by Joe Thomas

Every believer knows the greatest thing that has happened in his or her life is the Lord Jesus Christ, but sharing that experience with others can be very difficult. Learn ways to overcome the challenges of sharing your faith with others. Experience the joy and freedom that comes from being confident enough to have meaningful spiritual conversations with nonbelievers.

Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby
(Recommended for those who have completed the CORE classes)
Led by Doug Ball

For over 30 years, Experiencing God has impacted millions around the world by awakening believers to a radically God-centered life. You will be directed how to know God intimately, to recognize His voice and to understand His will for your life. It has now been revised to relate the Seven Scriptural Realities to our constantly changing world. This study involves daily assignments of reading in the workbook and answering questions.
