Sideris Classes

In addition to Sunday Worship and Consider Cohorts, we offer a series of classes to help you begin and continue to grow in your understanding and application of the gospel to all of life. Read about each class below.


Alpha Course

What is it?

Alpha is 10-week course exploring the fundamental questions and answers of the human experience from a Christian perspective. We share a catered meal together, watch a question-based video, and then dialogue about the video around our dinner tables.


Who is the for?

Since we will get to consider the foundations of the Christian faith, this course is perfect for those who are not yet Christians or are coming back to the faith to reconsider it afresh.


When is it?

We run the Alpha course once a year and the next course will start on April 4th, 2019. The course is be held at the historic Swedish Club near downtown on Dexter Ave overlooking South Lake Union.

The Gospel Class

What is it?

A 3-week class exploring the historic gospel of Jesus Christ and its implications on our vision of life -- both as individuals and communities. If we do not get in alignment about what the good news is and what it implies, we will be ineffective in our relationships and shared mission in this city.


Who is the for?

Since the gospel is the center of our community at Sideris Church, this class is perfect for those thinking of making Sideris home. It provides a clear and robust explanation of how we understand the gospel and the role the church plays in our city. For most Christians this material will be new and challenging... in a good way of course!


When is it?

We run The Gospel Class three times each year and our next class will begin on Feb. 17th, 2019. The class is held immediately after Sunday worship in a classroom at Hamilton Middle School. Lunch is provided.



FAMILY MEMBER CLASS

What is it?

A one-day class exploring the importance of family membership in the local church and the distinctives of being a family member at Sideris Church. We will discuss the purpose of making covenants in community, the leadership structure of our church, and some theological distinctives and why they matter. Here is where you will have an opportunity to ask big questions and process if Sideris is going to be family for you.


Who is the for?

Since this class provides the information and a space to process if Sideris will be your home church, this class is perfect for those asking that question. Everyone who completes this class will have an opportunity to be connected to an existing family member in what we call the "Brother/Sister Project." The hope of this initiative is make sure every person at Sideris is known and cared for in our community.


When is it?

We run the Family Member Class three times each year and our next class will be March 9th, 2019. The class is all-day Saturday and lunch is provided.
