Taught by Pastor Claude Atcho

How does God’s kingdom teach us to view and engage today’s pressing ethical topics like sexual ethics, politics, and social justice? Because Jesus is progressively making us new, He is forming new virtues, attitudes, and actions in us. Put another way, He is shaping our lives around His kingdom ethics—a new way of being in the world. This means we embody kingdom ethics: the worldview, actions, and attitudes which align with God’s Story and Kingdom.

Kingdom Ethics will help us to live with Christ-like righteousness in today’s complex, combative cultural moment. In this class, we’ll explore:
– How kingdom ethics and virtues are formed in us
– How God’s kingdom shapes our attitudes, actions, virtues, and worldview
– How God’s kingdom teaches us to view and engage today’s pressing ethical topics like sexual ethics, politics, and social justice

Offered at our Fellowship Germantown Outpost – September 8 – October 13 (6 weeks). 5 to 7pm.

You only have a few short years with your child. Why not make the most of the time you have? The challenges of raising kids in today’s world are staggering. Kids face unprecedented obstacles in school, through the media, over the internet, from their peers and as a result of the breakdown of the family. This second part of the Grace Based Parenting small group video study will give parents the confidence and skills to raise kids who flourish in their culture by building character for life.

Based on his book, Raising Kids Who Turn Out Right, Dr. Tim Kimmel gives parents a positive strategy for raising kids who can stand up to the pressures around them by raising them from the inside out with character. The Building Character small group study will help you:
