1 | Men’s Class – Stepping Up, from Family Life Today
Led by Phil Chaffee
Dig deeper into what it means to step up and live a courageous life with Stepping Up Video Series. Based on his book by the same title, Dennis Rainey, along with Matt Chandler, Bill Bennett, Robert Lewis, Voddie Baucham, Stu Weber, Eric Metaxas, Crawford Loritts, and other ministry leaders unpack what biblical manhood looks like and what it means to be a godly, courageous man in today’s world. Through engaging stories, expert teaching, humorous vignettes, man-on-the-street interviews, and personal insights, these men’s ministry leaders call every man to become courageous leaders in their own lives, marriages, churches, and communities.
2 | Women’s Class – No Little Women, by Aimee Byrd
Led by Linda D’Angelo and Heidi Shepler
Why are so many well-intentioned women falling for poor—even false—theology? The Devil has been effectively targeting women from the beginning, so why are they often left to fend for themselves in so-called women’s ministries?
Strengthening women in the church strengthens the whole church. Cultivating resolved, competent women equips them to fulfill their calling as Christ’s disciples and men’s essential allies. Writing to concerned women and church officers, Aimee Byrd pinpoints the problem, especially the commodification of women’s ministry. Aimee answers the hot-button issues—How can women grow in discernment? How should pastors preach to women? What are our roles within the church?—and points us in the direction of a multifaceted solution.
Aimee Byrd is just an ordinary mom of three who has also been a martial arts student, coffee shop owner, and Bible study teacher. Author of Housewife Theologian, she now blogs about theology and the Christian life and cohosts The Mortification of Spin podcast. Aimee will be the speaker at the 2019 Women’s Conference at First Reformed Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh in November.
3 | Practical Help from the Book of James, by Anthony Selvaggio
Led by Ben Hardesty
Do you ever struggle? Are you sometimes tempted to throw in the towel? Do you long for Christ to return? You are not alone, and thankfully you have been left with help and certain hope as you press on in your Christian walk.
The book of James is immensely controversial to some (ask Martin Luther), yet Anthony Selvaggio expertly opens up and shows us that this part of God’s inspired Word is as relevant to each of us right now as it was to the struggling Christians late in the first century.
