CLASS 401- Discovering My Life Mission
God created you with a purpose.
That personal, yet church-wide purpose, means connecting flawed human beings with our perfect and eternal God.
Your own story of how God has worked in your life is one of the most effective tools you have for connecting people to God. In CLASS 401, you'll learn to communicate that story to your neighborhood, workplace and around the world.
By using your own gifts, personality and story, you'll touch people only you can touch. Your life experiences can be a bridge to a friend or family member who is seeking Christ.
God's global plan includes reaching people from every nation with the good news of Jesus. In CLASS 401, you'll get a picture of what God is doing throughout the world to bring His people to Himself. You'll also find out how you can be part of His global plan.

CLASS 201- The Introduction To Spirual Maturity
During CLASS 201, you will learn four habits that will energize or renew your spiritual life. First, through CLASS 201, you will learn practical steps to making time with God a powerful part of every day through Bible reading and study. You will also receive helpful tips on overcoming the largest obstacles you'll face as you get started.
Second, every growing Christian needs to talk with God. This is called prayer. For some, talking to God is intimidating, but it doesn't have to be. In CLASS 201, you'll discover that God desires conversation with you and He's much more interested in you authentically talking with him than He is in critiquing your prayers. So, to get you started, you'll learn a pattern for prayer taken right out of the life of Jesus.
A third area that is covered is financial giving. Admittedly, this is a sensitive subject because few things give a more piercing look into our spiritual lives than how we choose to handle our financial resources. This section will help you take a healthy look at priorities and what really matters in life.
Finally, you'll clearly see the value of Christian relationships.First, there's the larger group worship experience at the weekend services. Second, there are smaller groups, where you can connect with other believers in a deeper, more personal way.
As part of CLASS 201 you will learn how dozens of people at Community Life Ministry have grown by becoming part of a spiritual family called a Small Group.

CLASS 301- Discovering My Ministry
CLASS 101 is our basic introduction to our church family.
CLASS 101- Discovering Our Church Family
The CLASS is broken into four sessions covering: Our Salvation, Our Statements, Our Strategy and Our Structure. At the end of the CLASS there will be an opportunity for you to decide whether to complete the process by filling in your information on the Membership Application or to wait and decide at another time.
God did not design ministry for just a few with seminary degrees. At Community Life, we believe that every member of our church is a minister. During 301 you will learn how God can use your Spiritual Gifts, your heart (passions), your Abilities, your Personality and your Experiences to minister to the needs of others.
When you chose to follow Christ, you were given special abilities, known as Spiritual Gifts. God gave you these gifts for you to use to build up His Church. God also gave you passion for particular activities and subject. Having the heart for specific things, people or circumstances is to be used to guide us into a ministry that we really care about.
In 301, you will be shown how to assess your abilities, gifts and passions to see where in ministry you will love to serve.
