The Christian Classics Club exposes the Christ-follower to understandings and experiences of some of the great men and women of faith and challenges us, in modern day America, to consider the possibilities of a profoundly deep possession of our lives by the Holy Spirit. Entering into one-ness with Christ was His prayer for us in John 17, but it's implications often are missed. The selections of this Classics Club are little known, or read, in contemporary Christianity but open windows through which we may glimpse the realities of such a place with Christ.
Several weeks are spent in discussion of each selection.
Christian Classics Book Club
This unique Book Club studies the Great Books of the Christian Era written by the deep sojourners of our faith. Be prepared for Deep Issues and Stretching Concepts; Lively Discussions and Disagreements and Challenging Encounters with the Meaning of a Life Immersed in Christ and with the Demands which that places on those who would bear a Cross and Follow Christ. Though Academically Stimulating, the Heartbeat of the Club is Spiritual. The Goal is not to Intellectually Comprehend but to Experientially Embrace the Journey and Know Christ more Intimately.
