The Goal of this special class is to make clear how
a person becomes a member of God’s family and how we should act once we are His
children. We also want you to know how
to be a part of our local expression of God’s family – Living Hope Church.
The class has
six sections, Adoption, Moving In, the Family “Play‑Book”, Family Values,
Family Tasks, and the Family Reunion.
The first deals with becoming a member of God’s family and leading
others into this great relationship.
Moving In has to do with the basic parts of Christian life – what you do
at first and what you do to grow up in the family. The Family Play‑Book explains why we believe
the Bible is God’s Word and how it should instruct us in living in the
family. Family Values explains the
basics of the Christian faith and some specifics of our church beliefs. Next we’ll explain some of the Family Tasks –
what is expected of Christians in God’s family?
Last we will have a Family Reunion – where did we come from and where
are we going? What is our mission?
is intended to help you prepare for each session. Please read through each section and answer
the questions before coming to the class.
This way you, and everyone else in the class, will gain the greatest
benefit from our time together.
Thank you so much for your interest in LHC. But more than that thank you for
your love of Jesus Christ and the Father who sent him. May you in all things draw nearer to Him. There is no greater blessing in all of
eternity than to be a member of God’s family.
In all His love,
Pastor Rick Henderson
