Winter Quarter Classes 2016
Classes at CLC are where relationships, discipleship, and life happens!
While we believe relationship can take place in a class, classes are primarily for the purpose is of “training you”. Classescome in all shapes and sizes and topics of study (New Testament & Old Testament survey, new believer classes, Bible studies of all kinds, marriage, finance, spiritual gift discovery, etc.).
WINTER QUARTER (January – February – March 2016)
WEDNESDAY NIGHT CLASSES - Beginning Jan. 13, 2016, 7 pm
GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. GriefShare helps you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. You don't have to go through the grieving process alone. Cost $20. Room 605.

It's Time to Stand for Freedom
Our nation is at a crossroads....we are in danger of losing our freedoms. If we don't understand this battle or take a stand for our freedoms now, we may very well lose them. As Ronald Reagan said, "Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again."
In this class, learn our founder's formula for freedom, our form of government as stated in the Declaration of Independence, and some basics about our constitution and the freedoms contained in the 1st Amendment. Also learn how the recent Supreme Court case on same-sex marriage will impact our 1st Amendment freedoms. The class will finish with how to protect our rights and freedoms as promised in the Constitution. West Auditorium
