FINDING THEOLOGICAL ARCHETYPES IN MODERN FILMS (January 13 - March 3)
Teacher: Joe Pohl Location: Coffee Connection
This class is designed for all ages, but particularly people who like watching wholesome movies. Every week we will feature a new film (mostly Disney films) where we will discuss what truths can be found. The start of the class will focus on how to discern what truths and lies are coming across in the film. This will teach us to search the scriptures for similar stories, and/or corresponding truths. We will also be discussing other matters such as; Authors/Directors intent, timeless truths, thoughts on society, cultures lies, and even basics on contextual criticism. Disclaimer: All films will be previewed or approved by parents (mostly PG) - videos will be watched during the week (not at Sunday School). It is not necessary that you watch the film before Sunday but it is recommended since participation during class time is encouraged.
AN OVERVIEW OF THE EPISTLES (January 13 - April 7)
Teacher: Henry Hooge Location: Chapel
This is an interactive class for all ages above youth. We will be looking briefly at each of the Epistles from Romans through to Revelation - save for Hebrews. The purpose is to gain a good understanding of the author, the circumstances, the major focus of the
epistle, the recipients, and some key verses. It will be an introduction to a better
understanding of the Epistles. It is like a “spiritual smorgasbord” where you get a little taste of everything and still feel that you have had a full meal. Let’s enjoy the Word
FIGURA: (in literary theory) a person or thing representing or symbolizing a fact or ideal.
Teacher: Laurie Throness Location: Choir Room (January 13 - Mar 3)
What can you tell about a person just by looking at his shadow? We will look at shadows in the Old Testament that prefigure more concrete objects in the New, increasing our understanding of Biblical history and uncovering mysteries in its real events.
FRIENDS CLASS (January 13 - April 7)
Teacher: Ida Struiksma Location: Room 35
This is a class for people with special needs. Come and join with friends as we sing together, share with one another and study the Bible.

NEWCOMERS ORIENTATION CLASS (March 3 - March 24)
Teacher: Wayne Massey Location: Welcome Centre
The New Comers Class is designed to be a place where newcomers to CAC can get an overview of our church’s ministries and beliefs, while also meeting other new people in our community and enjoying a cup of coffee.
The last words our Lord said before returning to the Father were “you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my witnesses.” A deep and radical encounter with the Holy Spirit making Jesus Lord of our life and the resultant desire that others know Him too is the impetus behind all we do at Chilliwack Alliance Church. I invite you to join us in this awesome quest and live the experience for yourself!
