Oak City: Unity

We’re excited about this season of unity to bring the body together for a time of teaching, discipleship, fellowship, equipping, and growth. Beginning September 8, our entire church will meet on Sunday nights at 5:45 p.m. for structured classes on topics related to evangelism, parenting, finances, and more.

The classes will take place at our building, and in Chosen Generation Christian Church’s building. We’re also excited that Chosen Generation will be joining us for these classes!

Class Descriptions

Parenting By the Book

Do you help raising your children based on Biblical principles?  Learn how to become empowered in your God designated roles as mothers and fathers.  We will reference information from Christian parenting author John Rosemond and his books, including Parenting By the Book.

Christ and Racial Reconciliation

Teachers: Ryan & Whitney Johnson
Cost: Free

Do you see the racial divisions in our churches, city and country but not know what to do about it? Do you hear about racial divisions but not see any evidence? What does Christ say about racial unity and reconciliation? What does Scripture say about racial unity in the church? Our class will explore these topics in a discussion format using Scripture, current events, book material or related sermon material.

Financial Peace – Legacy

Teacher: Michael Harris
Prereqs: Financial Peace University
Cost: Free (if already taken FPU).  If a family wants access to tools online they can pay for a monthly subscription, but not required for class
The Legacy Journey is a biblically based course that teaches you how to truly live and leave a legacy for generations to come. This course will lead you deeper into investing, basic estate planning, purposeful living, safeguarding your legacy, and discovering the keys to generational wealth and true generosity. Through video teaching, discussions and interactive activities, you’ll learn a biblical framework for living intentionally now so later you’ll be able to leave a legacy that will secure your family’s future and make a lasting impact on the world around you.

Precept Upon Precept Inductive Bible Study – Titus (4-week study) and Esther (5-week study)

Teacher: Kimberly Harris
Cost: $10
Description: Titus – Developing Character and Integrity in the Midst of a Society Which Has Lost Respect for God 
How do you live with integrity in a nation without morals? Can the church effectively engage and change this destructive condition in our society? How does your life reflect your faith? You can change the culture into which God has called you.
Esther – A Man and a Woman for Such a Time As This  
What is your purpose? God is always working in the affairs of His creation, even when we are unaware. This study shows us how Esther attained royalty to fulfill God’s purpose in her life and the lives of His people. Can God use you “for such a time as this?”

Intro to Theology

Teacher: Weston McManus
Cost: None

Description: “Theology”is a loaded word, but it’s not as scary as it sounds! Really, it’s just thinking and talking through questions that help you understand why you believe what you believe. The “Intro to Theology” class isn’t about gaining Biblical knowledge, it’s about asking the right questions.  The style of the class is very interactive and conversational, and the conversation will be guided through the course material. The material we cover is from an official theology class that, if taken in a more structured environment, would actually give you credits toward a seminary degree. It’s legit.  Bonus: There is NO HOMEWORK. In the class, we’ll think through big questions like: 

  • Why are there so many Protestant denominations?
  • Am I a theologian?
  • What are the different views of truth?
  • Does God still speak today
  • If I don’t brush my teeth, will God prevent them from falling out? 

And many. many more that you have and that we’ll explore together.
