Workshops are Bible Center’s short-term evening classes aimed at developing more maturing followers of Jesus Christ by educating followers in various aspects of life.

Workshops begin and end continuously throughout the semester, providing a lot of flexibility with start and stop dates.They are available on various weeknights to allow more people to attend who may not be able to attend on Wednesday evenings. It will also allow more people to volunteer in children’s and youth ministries on Wednesdays by enabling them to participate in a Workshop on another night of the week, if they choose. Most workshops are 2-6 weeks long.

The Gospel of Mark: The Jesus We’re Aching For

Lisa Pack • Sep 20 – Nov 1 • 9:30-11 AM • Room 2104

Mark’s narrative moves quickly and you sense the action in the story of Jesus’ life. It’s teaching presented as the gospel – good news powerfully announced in a world of bad news. This gospel emphasizes not only that Jesus is “the Son of God” (1:1; 15:39) but also that this fact demands a response. The Gospel of Mark highlights Jesus’ unparalleled spiritual power and authority, leading us to consider for ourselves the question, “Who do you say that I am?” (Mark 8:29)  Video study.
