Led by Dr. Paul J. Kirbas
The most controversial issues are the ones that need the most discussion, but most of us treat them like hot potatoes. As Christians, it is our duty to be informed about the hot topics facing our world and our society, so that we can form opinions and make decisions, as well as learn how to talk about sensitive issues with others in a Christian spirit. In this class, Dr. Kirbas will bring his years of teaching ethics at North Central College in Naperville, IL, to the Bridge. We will dive into the most controversial ethical issues, search for the arguments supporting different sides of the issue and decide what ethical schools of thought best address them. Join us for this class…and try not to get burned!
Life Skills You Won’t Learn In School
Led by Jay Seymour, Youth Intern
Parents, would you love it if your kids could learn basic life skills to help you around the house? High schools and middle schools are teaching our students where to find the x in an equation and how far away the sun is from the earth; but who is teaching our students how to make breakfast for themselves and why it is necessary to separate the white clothes from the light clothes before putting them into the washing machine? We are teaching our students these life skills in our Bridge class for students who are in 6th grade to 12th grade. We will be teaching them basic life skills such as; how to read recipes, how to do their own laundry, how to get ready for a job interview and manage finances, and how to perform basic car maintenance and basic house repairs. Sign your students up to learn these life skills and help you around the house!
Spiritual Gifts Assessment
Led by Laurel Hall
Did you know that the Holy Spirit empowers and equips all members of the Body of Christ with gifts? That means YOU have special gifts for the upbuilding of this church! Come to find out what they are and learn how to serve in ways that make you feel alive instead of serving in ways that make you feel tired. This four-week class involves taking a Spiritual Gifts Assessment and learning what the scriptures have to say about how the Body of Christ functions best when everyone’s gifts are known and appreciated. Anyone the age of 13 or older will enjoy this class...we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another. We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us - Romans 12:5-6

Fortnite addict and a mother of a 9-year-old and 13 years old, Rev. Junkin invites parents and grandparents to come to learn and discuss how the Fortnight Battle Royale game has affected not only our family life but also our culture.
