  • How God Changes Us

    February-April 2022

    How does God change us? As followers of Christ, we long to grow in godliness, holiness, and Christlikeness. But so often we find ourselves stuck. Our sin runs deep, we continue to fail, and we are constantly tempted to give up or give in. But the Bible promises us that we are not stuck. We can actually grow. In this class, we will look at how God’s transforming power creates real change in us so that we can overcome sin and make progress in our spiritual walk. Through it all, we’ll find that growing in Christ is a relational rather than a formulaic experience. Looking to Jesus, we will put off sin and be perfected in faith (Heb. 12:1-2).

  • THE HEART OF Jesus


    Sept-Nov 2021

    This 8-week study, led by Pastor Rick Whitlock, will investigate the heart of Jesus and how his very nature causes him to move toward sinners and sufferers rather than away from them. We will be using the book Gentle and Lowly: the Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers by Dane Ortlund to guide our discussion. The book is recommended but is not required for the study; free copies are available at the church.

  • Theology of Place

    November 2020

    It is important for us to study a theology of place: we must consider how God calls his people to be a faithful presence in the particular places he puts them. How is God calling us to work out our general calling to be his faithful people in our particular place (Broad Ripple) at this particular time (21st Century America) with our particular assets (our church building, homes, neighborhoods, bank accounts, work, etc.)?

  • Faith and Politics

    October 2020

    What do Christians believe about social and political engagement in their city and country? What are we to be and to do in light of our dual reality — we live in this world and are called to participate in it, and yet our citizenship is in heaven (Philippians 3:20) and our kingdom is not of this world (John 18:36)? Pastors Corey and Rick taught on citizenship and politics in light of a Christian worldview.  Join us for this special edition of Adult Education at Midtown as we consider Faith and Politics in an Election Year.

  • Mar-May 2019

    Curiosity about the concept of Justice has recently captured our society.  The word "Justice" was Webster's Word of the Year for 2018.  For the Christian, however, justice takes on an entirely new perspective, separate from political views or social trends.  It is not optional.  It is clearly commanded.  It is revealed especially in the person of Jesus Christ.  Join us for this 6 week class as Bill Regan and Josh Carter teach on a Biblical perspective on justice and how you can participate in doing justice today.
