Core Classes

Core: [kawr, kohr] the central, innermost, or most essential part of anything.

In Fall 2014 we offered the first of our "Core Classes." Each class meets 11 weeks and will be offered two times per year, similar to how college classes are offered. 

We call them "Core Classes" because we believe these classes are essential for training men and women to become what God has called all believers to be, "Disciples Making Disciples." 

In Spring 2015 two additional courses were added - "Spiritual Disciplines" and "An Overview of the Old and New Testaments" along with "Foundations of the Faith." In Spring 2016 "The Church - Ecclesiology" was offered and this fall (2016) we are adding "How to Share Your Faith." Additional courses will roll out with a total of 6.

All classes are being offered within a three year time frame. We have designed it this way so that everyone will be able to complete all of the "Core Classes" in a short period of time. It will also allow those who are in the Military to be able to complete all the classes within the typical time frame they are stationed at Ft. Knox.

Our desire is for all adults that are part of Severns Valley to complete all of the core classes. We are very excited about how God has led us to offer these classes and can't wait to see what He does through them.

Spiritual Disciplines

Those who follow Christ are to be daily conformed into the image of our Savior. How does this take place? What is my role in this? The answer to these questions is learning about and living out the daily practices called “spiritual disciplines.”  The teacher is Jeff Wilson, Executive Pastor.
