Covenant Life Institute

Covenant Life Institute (CLI) is a time devoted each week for our church to grow individually and with one another into sound biblical theologians and missionaries. CLI supplements the preached word and community group discussions by helping us grow in our understanding of God and the various doctrines surrounding Him.

During three 12-week semesters throughout the year, we provide opportunities for all members and attendees to study in CLI with a variety of topics covered. In order to ensure each member has ample opportunity to study with others and serve in childcare for others to attend classes, we divide each semester into two sessions. Sessions 1 and 2 cover the same material.

CLASSES BEGIN SEPTEMBER 2 AND OCTOBER 14

Old Testament Overview IV This survey class is the fourth in a series walking through the books of the Old Testament. Old Testament Overview IV will cover Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, Daniel, Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi, and through this course we will seek to understand how these books paint a broad picture of the continuing story of redemption culminating in the person and work of Jesus Christ.

Systematic Theology III Systematic Theology III continues our study through the biblical doctrines by looking at the doctrine of the Person of the Holy Spirit, and the Plan of Redemption/Order of Salvation (ordo saultis). Through this class, you will gain an orthodox theology of the person and work of the Holy Spirit, and an understanding of the logical progression of salvation as we study doctrines such as election, conversion, justification, and more.

Book of the Bible: Jonah CLI is making available, for the first time, a focused study on a book of the Bible will be offered on Sunday mornings. During this semester, participants will be taken through a guided look at the Book of Jonah. We look forward to offering this class and others like it in the future.

Friendship Among Women Also for the first time, a women’s class will be made available during the CLI hour on Sunday mornings. Students will have the opportunity to be lead in study and discussion of what Biblical friendships among women look like, and how that helps us form more healthy community, and more God-glorifying unity.
