Listed below are the Discipleship classes we offer here at Intercessor. If you would like to request any further information, please contact Dn. Jim Connolly at email@example.com.
People attend for a variety of reasons, and also from many different backgrounds and viewpoints. Some want to investigate whether God exists and if there is any point to life; others are concerned about what happens after death. Still others may have attended church all their life, but feel they never really understood the basics of the Christian faith. ALPHA explores such topics which include: who is Jesus, what is Christianity, faith, evil, prayer, the bible… and more. This class runs three times a year.
This class is a great followup to ALPHA and a great class on its own, for those who want to learn more about the Church: its history, its purpose, it’s reasons for doing what it does – what is believes, what it teaches, how it worships, and how it is governed, and also how Intercessor and our communion, the ICCEC, fits into Church history. For those interested in “official” membership at the Cathedral Church of the Intercessor, BETA is a required course, and is also run three times a year.
For those wanting to know where and how they fit into the Body of Christ, this class offers the opportunity to explore individual callings and giftings, and how to find your place and purpose among fellow believers while learning to grow into a deeper walk with God. It touches on your individual personality and natural giftings as well as explores and teaches on the different spiritual giftings one may receive when baptized with the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity. This class is also offered three times a year.
The Lord has always intended sharing our experiences in Christ to be easy, natural and a normal part of our day-to-day relationships. You will learn how to encourage other believers, build your own faith, and talk about what Jesus is doing in your life with family and friends, sharing your experiences in just 35-75 words. And it is truly as easy as 1, 2, 3. Visit www.123witness.com.
