1st Semester--Joseph: A Character Study
Everyone faces adversity; it is an integral part of our life experiences. Who you are depends on how you face the trials. As we look at the life of Joseph, keep in mind that we are just like him. Our character study of Joseph will teach us some important character traits of acceptance, hard work, patience, integrity, humility, blessing from others and forgiveness. The study of the Bible will help shape your mind and heart to become more Joseph-like to our family and friends.
2nd Semester--Daring Deliverers: Lessons on Leadership from the Book of Judges.
There are many unique periods in the history of the world. One of these is the four-hundred-year “period of the judges.” During this time, Israel confronted six of the most powerful and influential nations on earth and emerged victorious. However, Israel was not victorious in its own strength. God raised up judges-deliverers who led to Israel to victory. It is the story of the Daring Deliverers that is the focus of this course. While their stories are indeed important, the lessons we can learn from their successes and failures are even more significant.
