Course #1: Tell it! Shout it! Witnessing for Jesus

Location: Boardroom (Upstairs)

Jesus told us we should be lights in the world. Lights shows people the way. Christians, especially those who tend to be timid, often struggle to know how they can be an effective witness for Christ. Since Christians can witness by their life and their lips, Tell It! Shout! illustrates how to do both.

Course #2: God's Vision or Television? How Television Influences What We Believe

Location: Classroom #8 

How much time do you spend watching TV? Can television subtly alter what you believe or change the way you look at reality? This author helps us compare the facts about television's influence with the Bible's words about the outlook God wants us to have on life. Is your world-view shaped more by looking at God's Word or by looking at the television?
