“Get Equipped” is a set of 4 courses, offered consecutively through the year, and running for 6 Monday evenings each. Broadly speaking, most evenings are divided into two sections: the first section deals with how we understand the Bible and the second section is how we apply the Bible to all of life. You can register for as few or as many courses as you like.
These courses offer the opportunity for the further equipping and training of ministry leaders from within Rosebank Union Church (RUC). However, the courses are open to anyone, whether in leadership or not, and whether a member at RUC or not. The courses are primarily aimed to serve Christians who want to deepen their ability to understand, teach and live out the message of the Bible.
PLEASE NOTE: Not all of the courses for 2019 have yet been finalised.
Course 3 : Understanding Hosea; Redeeming Technology
This short six week course will include two parts:
- Six sessions exploring the the book of Hosea: This study in Hosea will explore the people, culture and context of the time and how we can apply it to our lives today.
- Six sessions exploring the redemption of technology: How can Christians be thoughtful about their engagement with technology? How does technology connect with our humanity? Does the Bible give us any useful clues? What does stewardship of technology look like?
