202 Stewardship and Spiritual Disciplines 3 Hours One of the purposes of this class is to establish a Biblical understanding of Christian stewardship and find practical ways of applying them. Emphasis will be on ownership, varying views of finances and possessions, tithing and giving beyond the tithe, debt, family budgeting, brotherhood and mutual aid, saving, retirement, estate planning, etc. This course will also examine the change Christ seeks to bring in our journey with Him as He interacts with us through the events of our lives, and also what role the traditional Christian disciplines play in this transformation of heart and renewal of the mind. 302 Marriage and Family 3 Hours This course is a study of principles relating to marriage and family. There will be practical help to prepare young people for courtship, marriage, and parenting from a Christian perspective. Our goal is to teach principles that make for strong marriages, that will impact our cvhurches, our communities, and the world. 402 Peace and the Simple Life 3 Hours In this course we will examine the biblical basis for peace and nonresistance. We will examine the historical evidence for this position and discuss how to apply this principle in times of war and peace. We will also discuss the biblical basis for a simple life and how to live this out in our culture. We want to live above the violence and greed of human society, and God has made a way! 502 Christian Peacemaking 2 Hours As a part of the peace church movement, we are committed to a Biblical approach to handling conflict. Specific principles of conflict resolution will be addressed in this course, together with practical ways of bringing the love of Christ to bear on interpersonal tensions. 602 Spiritual Preparation for higher education 2 Hours While we do not necessarily recommend college education, some may find it necessary. This course is offered to assist the pre-college student in maintaining biblical Anabaptist moorings in the college environment. 702 Living in Community 2 Hours Is it required that a biblical Christian live in community with other believers? How does living in community impact our choices? What is the rightful place of the local church in the believer’s life? This course explains what the Bible says about these life sustaining issues.
