Parent Community Class
Sundays|| 9AM || The Gathering Room
This fall sees a brand new offering beginning with our new Parent Community Class. The class will be held during the 9:00 Worship hour while kids are in Sunday school. The goal of the class is to build a supportive community for parents of all ages. We will spend time sharing, praying, laughing, digging into the word, looking at research, but most of all, supporting one another in this great adventure God has called each of us to.
The class will be led by Drew Hulse, our new Associate Pastor for Family Ministry, and by his wife Cathy, a school psychologist and expert in resiliency. We will meet in the Gathering Room for our time together and then head to worship with our kids to the 10:15 Contemporary Service. Take a chance, come and check it out.
The Psalms Adult Education Class
Sundays|| 10:15AM || Middle School Room (Annex #101)
Psalm 118:8. - The central verse of the Bible, in the central Book in the Bible. As the Bible is central to our Reformed Christian faith, so the Book of Psalms is central to the Bible. The Psalms represent the prayers, petitions and praises of the people to God, and even to this day, are central to our worship.
About the Psalms, Luther said it “might well be called a little Bible. In it, is comprehended most beautifully and briefly, everything that is in the entire Bible.”
Beginning Sunday, September 9, an Adult Bible Study class will be held in the Middle School Room, Annex #101, for a study of the Book of Psalms. The class will explore the importance, anatomy, history, theology and types of Psalms. Come, join the discussion about this special book of the Bible that has been a central element in teaching and celebrating our faith. Discussion will be facilitated by Carl Johnson. All are welcome.
About the Psalms John Calvin said, “there is nothing wanting which relates to the knowledge of eternal salvation.” So come, learn about your promised eternal salvation through belief in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus the Christ, and celebration through the Psalms. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man. Psalm 118:8
Spiritual Gifts Class
Wednesdays || 6PM || Room #12
God in his grace has given each believer spiritual gifts. In this course you will learn what spiritual gifts are, why God has given them, how they are to be used, and how they can be misused. You will also learn about the spiritual gifts you have been given, including potential gifts that God is working in you to develop. Discover Your Gifts and Learn How to Use Them is intended to help you and other believers use your gifts constructively together to the glory of God.
NOTICE: It is very important to be there at the beginning and not miss the opening sessions. The class will run 5-7 sessions and will probably be offered again if you cannot make it this time. This class will be facilitated by retired Pastor Bob Walter and Donna Walter. The class will meet in Room 12 of Meredith Hall at 6:00 pm starting Wednesday, September 12th.

Life Group Leader Training
Wednesdays || 6PM
Mountain View will launch a new small group ministry in January of 2019. We call them “Life Groups”. God created us for deep, authentic relationships, and small groups provide life-giving community like nothing else. You’ll be hearing more about this exciting new ministry soon.
First, we need to train a small group of leaders to facilitate the meetings and conversation. Training will be on Wednesday nights at 6:00-7:00 for nine weeks this fall. Life Group Leader recruitment is underway. Do you love Jesus – do you trust in him and are growing in him? Do you love people – do you want to invest in others and see them grow? Do you love Mountain View Presbyterian Church – do you believe in our mission to lead people in a growing relationship with Jesus? Contact Pastor Kirk if you are interested in becoming a Life Group Leader. firstname.lastname@example.org
