SHAPE

God has given each believer a spiritual gift that He wills us to use for His glory, but we oftentimes don't use it, because we either don’t know what they are or we simply don’t know how to use them. In this course we will help you discover your gifts!
  Take a spiritual gifts and personality profile test.                                                                                                       Explore your spiritual gifts and your personality type.
  Learn how to use those gifts for the glory of God.

HEALTHY  HABITS

Scripture clearly tells us that we are to grow in our faith to become mature Christians in order to fulfill God’s will for our lives. This class focuses on the four basic habits every Christian needs to develop in order to grow to spiritual maturity. It is designed to equip you with the skills and tools that you need to develop and nurture these habits. Habits of a Healthy Christian was designed to put us on the path to fulfill that goal.

LIFE  ON  MISSION

This class has been created to enable and encourage us to be faithful and obedient in sharing our faith with others. We will discuss the mandates and methods of personal evangelism. We will examine the importance of preparing a personal testimony that presents the essential truths of the gospel. We will discuss the appropriateness and effectiveness of various methods of evangelism in certain situations. The class is for new believers as well as veteran believers who want to strengthen their ability to fulfill the Great Commission by sharing the good news of Jesus with others.

Core Classes

As part of the Pathways Class offerings, you will find 4 classes that we consider our Core Classes.  These classes offer a foundation for our growth as followers of Jesus.  We encourage everyone at SonRise Church to take all 4 of the core classes and because we feel it is so important, we are offering an incentive to encourage each person. Anyone who completes all 4 core classes in 2022 will be recognized with a completion certificate.  This certificate will indicate one’s commitment and desire to grow in faith and to follow Jesus. The core classes are:
Starting Point

These classes will be offered multiple times throughout the year, so you will have several opportunities to complete each of them.
