Spring 2018 - Begins February 7th
We’re excited about how God has led us to offer CORE classes at Severns Valley and can't wait to see what He does through them in the spring semester. Beginning Wednesday, February 7th, we will be offering 3 classes: The Church taught by Senior Pastor Dr. Bill Langley, Equipping for Relationships taught by Associate Pastor Dr. Ray Hicks and An Overview of the Old and New Testaments taught by Adult Pastor Joe Thomas.
All books needed for these classes will be available at the kiosk for you to purchase prior to the start of the semester.
You may audit or take the classes for credit.
Online registration will open soon!
Dr. Bill Langley, Senior Pastor
More and more people today are sensing little need to be involved in the life of a local church. Why is that? The simplest answer is, they have no real understanding of what the church is and why Christ established it in the first place. For that reason, we're offering a Core Class simply called, “The Church.” Join us as we examine the biblical, practical, and personal significance of Christ’s church.
Equipping for Relationships - NEW class
Dr. Ray Hicks, Associate Pastor
This CORE class is going to be a very practical one. We will look at our relationships with God and with one another and see they are the focal point of God's Word. We will learn His Word is the key to helping us so those relationships can become healthy and grow.
We will take a biblical look at areas like communications, anger, conflict resolution, repentance, forgiveness, marriage and parenting. In each of these areas, we will find out how to face these issues biblically. In addition, we will look at some hot button topics like divorce, lifestyle choices, restoration, depression, fear and several others.
The main goal of this CORE class will be to equip each of us with some biblical tools and strategies to help us navigate our world of relationships, beginning with our relationship with God and then with the good and the difficult relationships of our lives.
I am excited about what God can teach each of us during this time. One requirement for this CORE class is for you to bring you Bible to this CORE class each week. It is our guide and resource for life's relationships.
An Overview of the Old and New Testaments
Joe Thomas, Adult Pastor
How can I have a better understanding of what I am reading in the Bible? Why do different books in the Bible read so differently than other books in the Bible? Is Jesus mentioned in the Old Testament? Is the Bible still important during modern times? These questions and more will be dealt with in this class. Come and take this exciting journey with us through the most influential book ever written, the Bible.
