First Look Class

The Commons
In-Person Only

Our First Look class is designed to help you better understand the mission of The Church of The Apostles. We want you to know who we are, why we are here and where we are going in the years ahead. For those who are considering membership or simply want to learn more about our church, we want you to know what it means to belong to our family.

Our leadership team looks forward to meeting you and sharing how the Lord is using the ministry to make a difference throughout Atlanta and beyond.

Christianity 3-D

Glenn Rivera
In-Person or Online
Room 613

We encounter Biblical words such as “resurrection,” “the Kingdom of God,” “Passover,” “antichrist,” or words seemingly as simple and straightforward as “believe,” “faith,” “salvation,” or even “marriage,” but how can we be most certain of sound understanding and correct application to our lives?

There is one place to turn: the rest of the Scriptures. Yes, Scripture is its own best interpreter. “For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light.” Psalm 36:9

We must examine what the Bible has to say as a whole, looking at the various genres in which Scripture is presented to us, including narrative, poetry, wisdom, prophecy, the gospels, the epistles, and the apocalypse. The various genres of Scripture present God’s unified revelation; therefore, we must let Scripture interpret Scripture.

In Christianity 3-D, we will encounter God’s Word in its various genres, allowing Scripture to interpret itself, teaching us to understand and apply it correctly. Hence, the purpose of Christianity 3-D: Doctrine – Learn it! Discernment – Understand it! Discipleship – Live it!

Discerning the Times: In the Church & In the Heart
June 6 – 27

Muriel Cash, Casey Hawley
In-Person or Online
Room 607-610

Having just come through what has been repeatedly referred to as an unprecedented year, it’s time to get our bearings as we move forward into the days ahead. It’s been a turbulent year of conflict, isolation, conflicting (and often inaccurate) information. Jeremiah 6:16 speaks to our present situation and location. We are at a crossroads and need to heed the counsel of the Lord by returning to the ancient paths. The picture here is of travelers who have wandered from the right path and need to return. The right path is the way of God’s Word and the established and eternal doctrines of THE faith. (Jude 3)

In good times or perilous times, the one constant in your life is your Most High God. How do you protect and strengthen that relationship when the world seems to be falling apart? Whether you have experienced a personal crisis, or you are just experiencing the distractions of 2021, your personal walk with the Lord is vital to your peace, blessing, and usefulness to the Kingdom. Take a closer look at how you can offer your life up daily to be shaped, guided, and made more delightful to your Father and Defender. Learn how praying, proclaiming, praising, and remaining in His presence can help you experience the fullness of your daily walk with Him and equip you to go out each day and represent Him in a beautiful way. Jesus Himself will be our model for how to spend time with the Father. (Matthew 26, Mark 1)

Join us as we follow our trusted Guide, the Holy Spirit, as He leads us forward with needed TRUTH.

Jeff Falkowski
In-Person or Online
Room 620-623

Everything seems to be changing around us. In such an environment, it is important to find a safe harbor to be with others. To this end, plan on meeting up with the Family Connections class to strengthen the core of your life, marriage, and family this summer. While together, let’s explore the rock-solid resources of Paul’s foundational letter to the Ephesians. Here, we will look at how knowing, celebrating, and living out the Gospel has important implications on the quality of our daily life, family, and community.

Come gather with us this summer to learn how to deliberately develop a gospel rhythm in our lives at home, work, and play. We’ll be glad we did!

How Jesus Ministered in Galilee of the Gentiles

Tom Taylor
In-Person or Online
Room 244

In the middle of the Gospel of Matthew, we see Jesus away from the religious center of the time (Jerusalem) and in a more commercial district (the district of Galilee). We will see how this speaks directly to us today, followers of Christ, living every day in a Gentile world. We will start in Matthew Chapter 4 and journey to around Matthew Chapter 19.

July 11 – August 29

Rand Eberhard, Elise Wilkes, Randy Eberhard and more

We are all trying to make sense of a world that is growing more hostile and isolated.

“Finally, brothers, aim for perfection, listen to my appeal, be one of mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.” 2 Corinthians 13:11

“Peacemakers are people who breathe grace. They draw continually on the goodness and power of Jesus Christ, and then bring his love, mercy, forgiveness, strength, and wisdom to the conflicts of daily life.” Ken Sande

Join us for a Hope and Healing Series on what it means to be a true difference-maker and one that leaves hearts marked by the Holy Spirit, furthering faith, hope, and love for God’s glory.

Servant Leadership – Lessons in Experiential Discipleship

Lawrence Shaw
In-Person or Online
Room 248

This course intends to present discipleship through the lens of servant leadership.

It is intended to encourage Christ-followers in working out a growing faith, knowing that a continued growth process leads, ultimately, to a place of surrender.  When we know God intimately and know who we are in Him, this opens up a beautiful confidence and humility to be that servant leader.  Similar to Jesus’ use of parables to teach, this course will feature film clips to bring lessons to life.

Zechariah

Joe Carpenter
In-Person or Online
Room 237 ABCD

Zechariah has been called the most Messianic, the most truly apocalyptic, and eschatological of all the Old Testament writings. Zechariah’s prophetic ministry took place in the time of Israel’s restoration from the Babylonian captivity, and his primary interest was spiritual renewal.  In Zechariah, God’s promised deliverance from Babylonian captivity, including a restored theocratic community and a functioning temple – the earthly seat of the divine sovereignty – leads to even grander pictures of the salvation and restoration to come through the Messiah.

The book gives many explicit pictures of the Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, and teaches the sovereignty of God in history, over men and nations – past, present, and future.

An examination of these themes throughout the Bible is a useful way of gaining a deeper appreciation of God’s revelation.

Jesus Christ: The Promised One of God

Roger Hill
In Person or Online

Every profession is noted for their way of thinking, their way of expressing, and their way to a desired outcome. An attorney thinks different from an accountant who uses a different vocabulary than a preacher. Medical doctors also have their unique thought processes, vocabularies, and desired outcomes.  Luke, identified by Paul as the “beloved physician,” is no different. And in so doing, Luke has given us almost one-third of the New Testament in the Gospel of Luke and The Acts of the Apostles.

Luke’s desired outcome is for us to see Jesus Christ, the Promised One of God as the Perfect Man, the Son of Man, through whom salvation is available to both Jew and Gentile alike.

The Epistle of 1 Corinthians

Monte Johnson
In Person or Online

We are in a multi-year study of Acts and Paul’s various missionary journeys and the subsequent letters he wrote to the churches he started. We will periodically take a pause from Acts, and study the letters Paul wrote while on each journey to the churches that he started. We are currently studying the letters associated with Paul’s 2nd missionary journey, 1 and 2 Corinthians. When finished with those studies, we’ll head back to Acts chapter 19, and then follow Paul on his 3rd missionary journey. Then, we will study the letters Paul wrote after his 3rd trip, and follow him on to Rome to where he wrote the balance of his New Testament epistles, of which we will study as well!

The Book of Daniel: Christ’s Kingdom Stands Forever

Baker Smith
In Person or Online

God blessed Daniel with wisdom and understanding while making him a blessing to the kings of the Babylonian and Persian world empires. Through Daniel, God showed these powerful rulers as well as heavenly beings that God is in control of the events of history, and that history moves in accord with his purposes and in relationship to his people. God demonstrated his power in the lions’ den, in the fiery furnace and Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and other visions. As a result, the formerly pagan King Nebuchadnezzar fell on his face and said to Daniel, “Truly, your God is God of gods and Lord of kings.” With reference to Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, Jesus pointed to himself as the stone that crushed all previous world empires. In another vision, Daniel revealed that the Son of Man, as Jesus frequently called himself, would be given the world kingdom, the power, and the glory forever. Please join us for this exciting study as you strengthen your confidence and assurance of victory in Christ.

This is a study about the decline of America and its Church today. Our class questions whether or not we as Christians can do anything to turn the tide.

Our class builds on previous studies of knowing and doing God’s will, revivals and awakenings, Paul’s missionary journeys, and Paul’s epistles. We will compare the dramatic changes we face in 21st century America today with these biblical teachings. How can we overcome evil with boldness? Can we really make a difference? Where do we start? Join us for an exciting journey and find out.

The Victory of Faith

Adam Mathes
In Person or Online

“But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved” Hebrews 10:39, NIV.

The struggles and turmoil we experience in the world today are not new. Our faithful ancestors experienced challenges equal to—and greater than—those we experience today. Scripture shows us how ordinary people like us became heroes of faith. This study will examine our ancestors’ lives and faith, beginning with Hebrew’s heroes (cataloged in Hebrews 11). It will lead each participant to renewed hope and the expectancy of victory that faith brings.

*Adam Mathes is married to Sarah Wood Mathes and together they have four young children.  Adam served six years as a Navy Chaplain, and he also has an earned Ph.D. in Historical Theology.
