AMARILLO'S WORLD RELIGIONS

Kelly Utsinger, Class Leader at Central and Lawyer at Underwood Firm

“…a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, ‘Master…who is my neighbor?’ Understanding the world religions within our City is the first step in building relationships with our non-Christian neighbors. Attend this class to answer, ‘Now which of these would you say was a neighbor.’”   Luke 10:25-37  

THE INTENTIONAL MARRIAGE

James & Debbie Vaughan / Adam & Missy Gray, Marriage Ministry Team (combining counseling & leadership experience)

In our overcommitted and distracted culture, investing in your marriage is as challenging as ever, and it’s that much more important. We need a clear and captivating vision of marriage that God desires for His children, as well as an understanding of the healthy rhythms that make that vision possible. James and Debbie Vaughan and Adam and Missy Gray will facilitate this important conversation for marriages of all ages.

THE BIBLE DOESN'T SAY THAT

Allan Stanglin, Senior Minister at Central

We offer it as a bit of friendly advice, we hear it as godly instruction, we receive it in the form of loving encouragement. But what if the popular Christian cliché is not really Christian? It might sound true, but it won’t set you free if the Bible doesn’t say that!

JUSTICE THROUGH THE LENS OF SCRIPTURE

Dr. Michael Martin, Professor at Lubbock Christian University

This four-part series examines the theme of economic justice in the law, the prophets, the writings, the Gospels, and the letters of the New Testament.  The series will carefully articulate the evolving hope of economic justice as portrayed in the major sections of the canon, and with a view to the church’s lived witness today.

THE SACRED HOURS: A LITURGICAL THEOLOGY AND PRACTICE

Tim McMenamy, Elder at Central and Certified Spiritual Director

The Psalms offer us a way of joining in the prayer that has been going on for millennia and across all cultures while liturgy orients our lives around what God has been doing throughout history. There will be very little content in this class as we will spend our time praying the Psalms for the Season of Advent. Class is limited to 30 participants.
