Foundations of Covenant Theology

By / Sundays at 9:00am, through November 26, 2023

This class traces the story of creation, fall, and redemption, three of the four-fold movements of the overarching theme of the entire bible as found in Genesis 1-3. This account is foundational for understanding covenant theology, from a reformed confessional perspective. It is foundational for understanding the entire course of biblical theology as it sets the stage for a God-centered, Christ-centered interpretation of scripture. It exalts the person and work of Christ as the second and last Adam in the covenant of grace, who in his humiliation and exaltation has opened the gates of heavenly paradise for his church.

This fall, the Women's Class will be reading and discussing Name above All Names by Alistair Begg and Sinclair Ferguson, a thoughtful study and worshipful guide through the whole sweep of Scripture to help us see and meditate on the incomparable character of Christ.  We hope to be enabled to more readily respond to the exhortations of Scripture, to focus our gaze upon the King of kings, and to better understand just how great Jesus really is. All women are welcome – Please join us!

Preparation for Marriage

Tenth’s Preparation for Marriage class is a two month-long course offered during our fall, winter, and spring Bible School quarters for couples considering marriage (engaged or pre-engagement). The class meets Sunday mornings and provides a biblical, Christian perspective on marriage.

  • God’s Design for Marriage
  • Intimacy in Marriage
  • Expectations
  • Families of Origin
  • Communication in Marriage
  • Conflict Resolution and Forgiveness
  • Finances

Registration is required to attend this class, costing $135 per couple ($67.50 per individual) to cover the costs of books and curricula. You can pay online via the registration, or by bringing a check made payable to Tenth Presbyterian Church with you on the first day of class. Each person should register separately.

Attending Preparation for Marriage class does not guarantee the availability of our facilities for your wedding. However, if you desire to be married at Tenth, you must complete this course as a couple. We provide details for planning your wedding and getting married at Tenth.
