***All Wednesday evening Break-out Classes will occur simultaneously for 1 hour from 7:30 to 8:30pm at our Ministry Centre - 9744 176St, Surrey BC**
Our Children's Classes are designed to teach the Bible in a manner that makes learning fun and easy. We have ample space for multiple children's classes and for a variety of age groups. Learning is easy and authentic when it is fun and simple, so we have improved our presentations to keep our children on the edge of their seats. The more secular our public learning institutions become, the more urgent it is for us invest in our children having regular biblically-based teaching. Sunday sessions are not enough to adequately prepare our church of tomorrow.
Ignite Youth Class
Our Ignite Youth Class is designed to help our young people become more grounded in the Word of God before they make life-long decisions relating to careers, marriage and ministry. The classes will have a discussion format to allow for questions and answers, while giving youth a forum to express themselves and be heard. The Bible views young people as strong, so we claim their strength by faith. We see our young people not only strong physically but also: Strong Spiritually; Strong Academically; Strong Successfully; Strong Socially; Strong Relationally; and Strong Interdependently.
Graphic Design Class
***NO GRAPHIC DESIGN CLASSES OVER THE SUMMER - BACK IN SEPTEMBER***
PenTab offers Graphic Design classes in a fun and informative setting. These classes will run the 4th Saturday of every month and the program will cover web design, digital art composition, logo creation, photo correction, colour theory and more! Whether you just want to learn how to properly format images for your social media account, design a logo for your business or learn the fundamentals of creating graphics for a website, these 2 hour classes are for you.
The PenTab graphic design classes will be taught by graphic designer and visual artist, Cherlandra Estrada. For more information on the instructor, please visit www.cherlandra.com.
Please remember to bring in your toonie donation for each class! This nominal collection is going towards a fund that PenTab is building to purchase a graphic design computer for PenTab students’ use.
Best Version of You Class
Our Best Version of You Class is designed to help each one of us become the very best version of ourselves. Life is best lived and shared when we commit to being the very best version of who God created us to be. Not settling. Not imitating others. Not distracted by drama, debates, or discouragement. We aim at taking the Bible literally to provoke each other to good works.
These sessions will help you dream again and dream out loud, while equipping you with the tools to become disciplined, until you are living God's dream for the Best Version of You!
Don't be surprised when role models who are living their dream show up to help you live yours!
What We Believe Class
Our What We Believe class is designed to present the foundation of the Biblical truths we profess. The pursuit of truth, demands that we accept that the Bible is the best explainer of itself, as scriptures validate each other when contextually understood, taught, and received. We are not quite there yet, but we endeavour to give each other permission to keep asking the tough questions until we become more effective at carrying out the Great Commission to Reach, Rescue, and Restore the entire world.
The fundamentals of what we believe are easily accessible (on our website and in print form), so we are equipped to clearly articulate not just what we stand against, but also what we stand for.
Join us this Spring for an extension of our What We Believe Class – Journey Through the Bible, as we pursue a general bible overview and topical exploration of major bible themes while incorporating Old and New Testament accounts of the number 1 best selling & most powerful book of all time – the Bible. This exciting NEW series of classes begins on Wednesday April 5, 2017 at 7:30-8:30pm at the PenTab Ministry Centre. Get on board for a front row seat as together we explore the drama of God’s dealings with humanity throughout history. Join us as we delve into the fascinating story of Scripture and witness the Bible come alive.
What Others Believe
Our What Others Believe Class is designed to take us on a journey to understand and appreciate the different world beliefs, not limited to the many versions of Christian groups, but also to other religious groups, and even those who claim no faith. At the very least, this exposure will help us validate what we believe and then equip us to communicate better with others in a respectful way, which underscores that as much as we desire to be heard, we intend to also be attentive listeners.
These explorations will be done in a manner to be very respectful even when we strongly disagree with other points of view.
