UPCOMING SEMINARS

Developing The Optimal Curriculum For Your Jr. High and High School Student.

Monday

January 9, 2017

7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join us for an informative evening of new refreshing ideas for providing your children with an optimal curriculum for the Junior High and High School years.  This time period in your student’s life is extremely important and the type of curriculum and academic approach can be highly influential in the readiness factor of your future high school graduate.

We will discuss all aspects of determining the appropriate direction for your family encompassing such areas as learning styles, family dynamics, financial, experiences, exploration as well as the goals of your child for adulthood.  This is a “cannot miss” seminar for both you and your student.  As with all of our seminars there will be interaction among the attendees on what has or has not worked for them in the past.

We would request that you notify us through eiefieldtrips@gmail.com if you are coming.  Walk-ins are of course welcomed as well.  This seminar should be of great interest to both you and your child.  A voluntary donation of $5.00 per person is appreciated.

CLASS SCHEDULE:

  1. Intro to Thinking Like a Christian

Defining our terms: what is a worldview and why is ours important? What percentage of Christians hold a worldview that is biblically based? What if Christ never lived, and Christianity never was? In this introductory course we will cover the amazing, transforming, and liberating effects Christianity has had upon the entire world, and then examine the root cause for why Christians are having so little effect in our world today.   Thursday, January 5, 2017        7:00-8:30 pm

  1. The Christian Worldview of HISTORY

Whatever worldview we adopt and ultimately base our lives upon must have a reliable foundation. How reliable, then, is the Bible compared to other religions or ideas? Is there any proof that God is still working in the world in the same way He did in ancient Israel?Thursday, January 12, 2017     7:00-8:30 pm

  1. The Christian Worldview of THEOLOGY

How can we know God? How can we know that God exists? What is God like? What are His characteristics? How does Christianity’s God compare to those of the other major religions?  Thursday, January 19, 2017     7:00-8:30 pm

  1. The Christian Worldview of PHILOSOPHY

The study of ideas. What is real? What is true? Is truth absolute or relative? Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going? How do I get there?  Thursday, January 26, 2017     7:00-8:30 pm

  1. The Christian Worldview of ECONOMICS

Compare and contrast Biblically-based Free Market Enterprise (Capitalism) with the Socialist/Marxist/Communist economic systems. What does Christ teach? Does a biblical worldview support the idea of a national healthcare system? What does the Bible have to say about entitlement programs and government welfare programs?  Thursday, February 2, 2017     7:00-8:30 pm

  1. The Christian Worldview of SCIENCE

What influence has either Christianity or Darwinian Evolution had on science and society? How does the Intelligent Design argument stand up in comparison to Darwinian Evolution? What is the difference between micro and macro evolution? Does religion and faith have any place in the sciences? Does science support or dispel the idea of a Creator? Is science at odds with Christianity? Can a Christian be a scientist, or a scientist a Christian?  Thursday, February 9, 2017     7:00-8:30 pm

  1. The Christian Worldview of PSYCHOLOGY

Everyone has problems. Some have problems with relationships, others with anger, and others still with depression or guilt. What is the Christian remedy and how does it compare to the “answers” offered by other religions and philosophies.  Thursday, February 16, 2017     7:00-8:30 pm

  1. The Christian Worldview of ETHICS

Is morality gray? One of the greatest objections we hear today that keeps us from pointing out right or wrong is “who made you the judge?” After all, doesn’t the Bible say, “Judge not lest you be judged?” Unfortunately, most Christians would probably hear that and agree. But what does the Bible really teach and what are the results of a culture not governed by biblical truth?  Thursday, February 23, 2017     7:00-8:30 pm

  1. The Christian Worldview of SOCIOLOGY

What makes some societies thrive and others suffer? What can a single Christian man or woman do to make a difference? What is the “backbone” of society and how important is the home and church? What is more important to God, the individual or the Nation?  Thursday, March 2, 2017     7:00-8:30 pm         

  1. The Christian Worldview of LAW

Does biblical law have any place in a secular society? What is the history of American Law? Is it true that it was based on the Bible? Is it true that you cannot legislate morality? Does the phrase, “Separation of church and state” appear in the Constitution? Why does it seem that American Law has become so unjust in the last 50 years?  Thursday, March 9, 2017     7:00-8:30 pm

  1. The Christian Worldview of POLITICS

Are Christians to be involved in politics? Should pastors be preaching about politics from the pulpit? Should Christians make a distinction between what is secular versus what is spiritual? Do Christians have a responsibility to vote? What is the result of Christians not participating in the political process?  Thursday, March 16, 2017     7:00-8:30 pm

  1. The Christian Worldview of EDUCATION

What does the Bible say about the Christian’s role in educating his or her children? Looking at our own history, what was the philosophy of the Founding Fathers toward education? What is the philosophy (or religion) of our public education system now?  What should we do to ensure that our children are prepared for life?  Thursday, March 30, 2017     7:00-8:30 pm
