Fall 2019 Discipleship Classes

A disciple by definition is a learner. A disciple of Jesus is a learner of Jesus and his Word. In order to live and grow as a disciple of Jesus we need to continue to know Jesus through his Word in an intentional and relational context where we are challenged by God’s Word and encouraged to obey His Word. We do that mainly through Small Groups (Student Lounge & Life Groups) and Discipleship Classes at New Hope Fellowship.

This fall we provide six classes: New Hope 101 which is a membership class for newcomers and long-time attendees of our church to take the next step to become a covenant member of New Hope Fellowship. We encourage students who grew up at our church and made a transition from Hi-C to New Hope to take this class to be a covenant member of New Hope. Explicit Gospel will help you to understand the essence and implications of the gospel. Coffee Break on the study of John and Friday night Bible study on Lamentation will help you to go deeper into the Word of God. Parenting class,Raising Teens in a Hypersexualized World,” will equip parents with tools and wisdom to disciple our children and the next generation with the grace and truth of God. Marriage Prepare & Enrich will help couples of all stages to build a strong foundation in their marriages.

In addition to these classes we have Student Lounge for college students to be discipled through Bible studies, prayer, fellowship and missions. And we have Life Groups that meet bi-weekly in various geographic locations to do life and grow together as disciples. I encourage you to take a class, join Student Lounge or a Life Group in order to know God and grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ with fellow brothers and sisters at New Hope Fellowship.

Coffee Break Bible Study – Jesus in John Pt 2: Who He Is

Coffee Break (CB) is an inductive Bible study that connects both believers and seekers to the Bible. Through a small group setting, CB creates a safe place where friends read and learn together what the Bible says and means with discussions using personalized questions based on the experience and needs of the group. In this session, under the theme of “Who is Jesus?”, we will study the gospel of John to understand the meaning of the words that Jesus used to represent Himself. Of course, this is all in looking at the ultimate question: Is Jesus the Savior?
*Children’s program will be provided for youngsters 1 and up
Audience: Open to all ladies (part 1 not required)
Facilitator: Hannah Choi
Time: 10 Tuesdays or Thursdays (from Sep 17) 10AM – 12:30PM
Location: 1st Floor Nursery Room

Bible Study: Lamentations

Lament is how we bring our sorrows to God—but it is a neglected dimension of the Christian life of many Christians today. Lament recognizes struggles and suffering, that the world is not as it ought to be. Lament challenges the status quo and cries out for justice against injustices. Lament avoids trite answers and quick solutions, progressively moving us toward deeper worship and trust. We need to recover the practice of honest spiritual struggles that gives us permission to vocalize our pain and wrestle with our sorrow. The book of Lamentations gives us voice to our pain and invites us to grieve, struggle, and tap into the rich reservoir of grace and mercy God offers in the darkest moments of our lives. This class will study together the book of Lamentations that not only equips us with the biblical words to express our sorrow and griefs, but also reassures us of God’s grace in the midst of them.
Audience: Anyone who wants to learn how to lament and hope in this world of brokenness; anyone who wants to study the Bible.
Instructor: Pastor Charles Lee
Time: 5 Fridays (Oct 11, 18, 25; Nov 8, 15) 7 – 9PM
Location: Room #308

Parenting: Raising Teens in a Hypersexualized World

Using a small booklet, Raising Teens in a Hyper-Sexualized World, we will learn together seven essential principles that will help us to lead our children through the wilderness of the 21st century sexuality. The hands-on approach will help us to be equipped and prepared as parents to have conversations with our children about the important topics that you may want to avoid but shouldn’t. The format will be a mixture of sharing and praying; we will discuss how to apply the principles we learn from the book and we will be praying for one another, for our children and the next generation. Check out the interview with the author Eliza Huie:
Audience: Parents, especially of teens and pre-teens
Instructor: Pastor Charles Lee
