This course will look at the first letter that Paul wrote to the Corinthians. It is one of Paul’s greatest letters, dealing with many issues with how the church of Jesus Christ can be empowered to the work of the Kingdom. We will use the scripture as our primary text, along with some extra resources. This class will last for ten weeks.

Elaine Edwards
 

This fast track study will take you through the entire Bible. Attendance during the 24 week study is important for you and the entire group. Elaine is an excellent teacher of Disciple.

Taught by: Kathy Nieman
 

Many of us have been victims of various types of computer problems. Some of them may have just been casual annoyances, but some may have been very expensive and threatening cases of identity theft. Kathy Nieman brings her extensive knowledge to help us know how to protect ourselves from these kinds of attacks. The good thing is that you don’t have to be a computer expert to learn what she has to share.
