Seniors Alive: Room 101

obedience in the same direction

Eugene Peterson is the well-known author of The Message – a translation of the Bible into easy-to-read, modern English. Peterson began this translation project, which now includes the entire Bible, with a contemporary translation of the book of Psalms. From the Psalms, he wrote a book entitled “A Long Obedience in the Same Direction" based on an ancient Hebrew hymnal contained in Psalms 120 – 134. This fall we will study these Psalms using ideas from Peterson’s book, and we will discover just how relevant they are for discipleship today. And, we won’t just study the Psalms, we will also “pray the Psalms” just as people have done for centuries.

Latino: Room 109

El libro de Romanos El libro de Romanos

La Epístola a los Romanos es el sexto libro del Nuevo Testamento. Los eruditos bíblicos coinciden en que fue compuesta por el Apóstol Pablo para explicar que la salvación es ofrecida a través del evangelio de Jesucristo. Romanos es la más larga de las epístolas paulinas y es considerada su «legado teológico más importante», así como su magnum opus. Estudiaremos como era la cultura, filosofía y orden de pensamiento de la iglesia primitiva en Roma en el año 56 DC y las aplicaciones evangelistas para la iglesia de North Atlanta en el día de hoy.

Decision-Making, Discipleship, and Determining God’s Will (January 20-March 17)

How do Christ-followers determine and understand God’s will? Does God have a specific will for my life? My spouse? My children? My career? My fears? Does God care about my dreams and my plans? What does the Bible say to disciples about making decisions and God’s will? Let’s explore together.

“Breathe” by Priscilla Shirer - Room 103

Reaching Higher—Women’s Bible Study

One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God's greatest gifts. In the Old Testament, Sabbath was given to the Israelites as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted, then the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

Intercultural Developmental Inventory (IDI)

Room 106 (January 20 - February 17)

Here at North Atlanta we believe that God, through the work of the Holy Spirit, has purposed us for the noble task of witnessing to our community and the world through our diversity. In John 17, Jesus prayed that we would achieve complete unity in our diversity, so that through it we might become “credible witnesses” to his claim to have been sent from God for the purpose of reconciling the world to himself. To this end, we endeavor to create an inclusive environment where all parts of the body of Christ feel valued, respected and fully engaged (I Corinthians 12:12-27). This 4 week class is designed to help members begin the process of developing the capacity to bridge across cultural differences and develop an integrated multicultural community of faith.
Teacher: Major Boglin

The Movement of the Spirit: Room 108 (January 20 - April 14)

Your spiritual journey began the moment you placed your trust in Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord. From that point, your life’s call is to be a disciple, to grow in Christ’s likeness (2 Corinthians 3:18). For many, it is challenging to know how that happens. What part does God play in my spiritual growth? Do I have an active part and, if so, what form does it take? Satan, a formidable adversary, creates barriers to my growth. He’s a hateful enemy. That’s scary. But what if, unknowingly, I am complicit with Satan by building self-imposed barriers to my own spiritual growth? That’s really scary! In this study we’ll explore how the Spirit moves in our spiritual growth. We’ll identify God’s part and my part in spiritual growth. We will investigate how God wonderfully created us to pursue a deeper relationship with Him.
Teacher: Tom Heinselman (Intercultural Developmental Inventory (IDI) facilitated by Dr. Boglin will be April 28 - May 19 in Room 108.)
