Investigation Classes (4-weeks)
Got Questions? We Have Answers!
A lot of people attend Allen Creek with little or no church background. That means there are a lot of questions to be asked! INVESTIGATION is usually a 4-week elective and gives you a chance to find the answers to tough questions about Christianity, like: "How do I know the Bible is true?”, “What about the dinosaurs?”, “Why does God let bad things happen to good people?”, “What about other religions?”. You’ll get real answers. Answers that can satisfy your heart AND your mind. Do YOU have some questions? Is there someone you’re thinking of right now who would benefit from having a safe place to ask those questions?
Why We Do, What We Do
At AC3 MISSION, you will find out 'why we do, what we do'. It is an overview of Allen Creek, our mission, vision, strategy and what it means to be a fully functioning member of the local church. We review God’s vision for our community and spend time imagining what it would be like to be a church that is totally sold - out to God, truly committed to one another and really caring for the world.
*Our MISSION Class is about two hours long, includes brunch or dessert and is required for membership at AC3. Mission is usually held mid-week in the conference room.
Life On Purpose (3-nights)
LIFE ON PURPOSE introduces spiritual growth habits that are key to experiencing the life that God intends for each of us. This new life doesn’t just form in us by accident, it happens on purpose as we begin new practices. this seminar will show that you don’t have to be a spiritual giant to develop the life that you (and God) have always wanted! Among the new practices discussed in one-day seminar are prayer, Bible study, community and giving. Apply the “how to’s” of Christian living. LIFE ON PURPOSE is practical experience in living a fully-devoted Christian life. More than just knowledge and theory, it’s actually LIVING the life with a group of friends at your side.
Essentials For The Christian Faith
This 10- week group picks up right where INVESTIGATION left off, by exploring exactly what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ, and the A-to-Z basics of the Christian faith. Topics like prayer, the Bible, the nature of God and being part of a church are covered. Most ENDEAVOR groups are made up of “Graduates” of a previous INVESTIGATION groups; but people wanting a practical refresher course in the "Christian essentials” are welcome to join in as well.
Finding Your Chazown (4-nights)
Chazown supports one of the most critical aspects of a Christ follower’s life: Serving. No matter who we are, God has given each of us a mission and special abilities for helping to build-up the church. Not only does Chazown take you on a discovery tour of those special abilities, it also helps you define areas of passion, interest, and temperament so that you can maximize your impact in the church.
