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 several 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.

Attributes of God:  This class will ground the attributes of God biblically, explore them philosophically, and then apply them to our lives. Some of the attributes we’ll be looking at together are love, omnipotence, omniscience, timelessness, holiness, and simplicity.  Along the way, you will learn terms that are often discussed about God’s character, such as aseity and immutability. Most importantly, we will see how these attributes can encourage us, embolden us, and help us to live in awe of the Lord. This class will be taught by James Berthoty and Ronnie Rentz.

Decision-Making and God’s Will:  This is a practical course providing a biblical basis on receiving guidance from God. We will examine the tools we use when discerning God’s will, particularly when facing decisions. This class is taught by Kevin Wilder and Matt Kindell.

Ruth and the Kinsman Redeemer:  Ruth is the backstory of King David’s family and is crucial to understanding the messianic line. It shows us our condition before God showed us mercy. It is a beautiful portrait of our salvation, and you will not fully understand God’s saving grace without embracing this book. We will delight in the Lord more as we understand how He set his love on us through the book of Ruth. This class is taught by Jared Williams and Hunter Hughes.
