"Belong, Believe, Become" is a class for those who want to find out more about who we are, what we believe, and how be a part of it! The class is built on three compelling realities:
BELONG - Grace tells us who we are:
As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins in which you used to live (Ephesians 2:1).
This class explores what we believe as a congregation as well as the legacy First CRC. You will have an opportunity to meet the leadership and staff, hear the story of First CRC, it's mission and vision, as well as how we see ourselves within the context of Hanford and Kings County.
BELIEVE - Grace tells us what God did:
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved (Ephesians 2:4-5).
Our story as the collective human race is a small part of the greater narrative of God and his redemption for the world. Whether you are a Christian, seeker, or skeptic, this course engages the Biblical reality that God is always the first actor in our story of faith. This class explores what we believe as a church.
BECOME - Grace tells us how to respond:
In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence (Ephesians 3:12).
In this class we will explore all of the various ministries of FIrst CRC and why we are motivated to do them. Also, if you are interested, we will explore ways in which you can get plugged into the congregation.
Our Discover classes are held twice a year (once in the FALL and once in the SPRING) and consist of three 45 minute sessions. They start at 11:00 AM in our upstairs loft.
