Theological Foundations - Stan Fowler
This course is about learning to think and speak accurately about God and his works, based on his revelation of himself. We will look at the ways in which God reveals himself, the attributes of God, creation and providence, the nature of humanity as God’s image, and the person of Christ. This will be the first of a two-part summary of the essentials of Christian theology.

Beginnings: a Study in Genesis - Ken Wideman
We will take a fresh look at the way everything around us in the world today started somewhere, and most likely, in the first book of the Bible, Genesis! The unchanging truths of Genesis are foundational to maintaining a Christian worldview and vibrant faith in our rapidly changing world. Let's remind ourselves what they are.
The Gospel & Shame - Thomas Rauchenstein
Have you ever struggled with people-pleasing, self-criticism, owning others' problems, isolating, blaming others, or avoiding vulnerability? We all have these struggles to some degree, but more often than not, they are rooted in feelings of shame. Shame is part of the air we breathe and the culture we live in, but no one really wants to talk about it, and so it rarely gets addressed. In this course, Thomas ends the silence by speaking openly about his own journey and by teaching you how to construct and implement a recovery strategy from the toxic effects of false shame, freeing you to feel more known and loved.
Christianity Explored is an 8-week course that gives you time and space to think through who Jesus is and why it matters. There is no cost to register.

Course Instructor: Harry DeBoer

Baptism is a command that Jesus gives to those who have committed their lives to following Him. It demonstrates externally what He has done for us internally and eternally. As you walk into the waters of baptism you join in Christ’s death, burial and resurrection and celebrate with the Church in His ultimate victory over sin and death. Baptism also announces to the world that we are followers of Jesus and want to live in allegiance with Him.
If you haven’t yet taken this step of obedience in your walk with Christ, we encourage you to speak to sign up for our next Baptism Class. Pastor Mark Hauch typically leads these courses and Baptism services are often held on Easter Sunday. We are privileged to have a Baptistry located in our Worship Centre.
If you've been attending Grandview for some time and would like to make the commitment to our church family by formally joining us in Membership, we encourage you to sign up for our next Membership Class.
