Presenting Everyone Mature in Christ

“Through prayer and study, worship and service, we regularly digest God’s Word into the core of our being, where it feeds and transforms us. Continue.”

– Richard J. Foster

Our life in God is nurtured through regular feeding from the Word with a community of Christ-followers. Plug in to Equip’s weekly Sunday morning Bible study and prayer courses as a spiritual habit of drawing from the Word.

Our Saturday morning classes provide a progression of short courses taught by our instructors to learn and reflect on doctrine, the Bible, Christian living, serving others, leadership and more.

Christian Living 101 (CL101)

The Christian Way

The Christian life encompasses all of life—in public worship, private disciplines, work, finances, family, and society. Christians are called to be distinctive in how we live, in the way of being “set apart,” “holy.”

This class examines the Great Commandment and the Great Commission, and what the Gospel means for the whole of our lives.

The Good News is that we are saved for a different sort of life than the one we used to live. What does this life look like today?

Basic Christianity 101 (BC101)

Basic Doctrine 1

Biblical doctrines are as important to a Christian as roots are to a tree. From them, we draw our emotional stability, our mental food for growth, as well as our spiritual energy and perspective on life itself. By understanding the basic tenets of our faith, we equip ourselves to live the life that God has designed for us. We will not be easily tossed about by every false wind of teaching nor be easily discouraged by the storms of life.

In Basic Doctrine 1, consider the basic tenets of the Christian faith, covering the doctrine of the Scriptures, the Trinitarian Godhead, sin and salvation, church and sacraments, and our future glorious hope in the age that is to come.

NOTE: Completion of this course is a pre-requisite for baptism and/or membership in DUMC.

Bible 201 (BB201)

Bible Study Principles

In this course, you will enjoy learning the Inductive Bible Study method—three simple but important steps in doing Bible study:

  • Observe – Find open and hidden facts in the text.
  • Interpret – Find the message the writer wants to convey.
  • Apply – Find the relevance of God’s message for you today.

This course also explores the various theories of Bible translation to show how these factors influence the task of interpreting Scripture. Particular attention will be given to understanding the New Testament epistles and the Old Testament narratives, both of which are commonly read portions of the Bible. Learning to interpret the Bible accurately is a precious investment for our spiritual growth and a great impetus for developing a lifelong passion for the study of God’s Word.

Sacred Rhythms

Drawing on the imagery of the natural rhythms of the created order, this course explores the practices that spiritual seekers and growing disciples have used throughout history to grow closer to God. In a similar way, the disciplines of the spiritual life are the basic components of the rhythm of intimacy that feeds the soul, keeping Christians open and available to God’s surprising initiative in their lives.

Each session offers teaching (video and live) and spiritual guidance on specific practices, allowing you to experience each discipline and incorporate it into your life.

Ministry 202 (MN202)

Worship in Song

Singing is part of the Christian experience. Worshipping in song, is older than the Psalms. The people of God have been making ‘joyful noises’ for centuries. In more recent times, there has been an explosion of events, billed as ‘worship experiences’, featuring well-known worship-leaders and worship bands, light-and-sound shows and thousands in audience. On the other hand, in homes all over the world, small groups of people gather and sing to God, without fanfare.

So, what is worship? What happens in worship? How we ‘do it’? Especially in our small group settings.
This is a course on worship, and particularly, worshipping God in song. It is designed to help you understand why we worship, and how we do so in song. It is also intended to help you lead others in worship in a small group setting.

Practising One-Another Principles

Why do people with common goals find it hard to serve together? Maybe it has to do with social styles. 

“Seek to understand than to be understood,” is a well-worn adage and particularly helpful in Christian life and mission.

This is a ministry elective suitable for developing cohesive and self-sacrificial working relationships toward common goals, by understanding and working around one another’s unique relational make-up.

Spiritual Warfare 201

Spiritual Warfare

The apostle Paul states that “our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Eph 6:12, NIV) Though the term ‘spiritual warfare’ is not found in the Bible, it is clearly biblical.

This course seeks to equip participants to minister with authority and confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ. We will look into the biblical basis of spiritual warfare and examine the different practical aspects of ministry in which we are engaged in spiritual warfare.

NOTE: Successful completion of both Prayer 101 and Ministry 201 is pre-requisite to attending this course, due to the nature of the subject.

Leadership 201 (CP201)

Christian Leadership 1

We believe that every Christian has the potential to be a leader in the area of his/her gifting and calling. If we have a willing and obedient heart, God will mould us into the kind of leader he wants us to be.

However, leadership in the kingdom of God is radically different from leadership in the world. Christian leaders pattern themselves after Jesus Christ and other biblical leaders in love, humility, servanthood as well as spiritual authority, among many other important qualities.

This course will examine key principles of Christian leadership drawn from the Scriptures, with special emphasis on the lives and ministries of those great men and women who had been called to serve the living God. You will learn to apply these precious truths to your own life, relationships and ministry settings whether at home, in the workplace, in church or wherever the Lord leads you to serve.

Whether you are a new or experienced leader, Christian Leadership 201 will renew your passion, enlarge your vision and prepare you for the dynamics and challenges of Christian leadership in today’s complex world.

Basic Christianity 301 (BC301)

Basic Apologetics

Apologetics, simply stated, means “the defense of the faith.” Is Jesus really God? Did he actually rise from the dead? Is the Bible really God’s Word? These questions may seem difficult but they are not impossible to answer. In fact, these are the key issues of the Christian faith. As Paul says, “…if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile…” (1 Corinthians 15:17). Therefore, as responsible Christians, we need to learn how to defend our faith in God, the Bible and the other key Christian doctrines.

This course will teach you how to reason out your faith so that you may “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.” (1 Peter 3:15)

Spiritual Formation 301 (SF301)

Spiritual Formation

A transformation of the heart is the goal every Christian must desire after and strive for if his/her walk with God is to be taken seriously. However, there is no shortcut to this cultivation of the inner life. Well-known author Richard Foster comments, “If we are expecting one or two worship services or study groups a week to change us, it will never happen. The whole object of the exercise is to walk with God through our days and through our nights.”

The practice of the spiritual disciplines is the pathway toward true inner spiritual transformation, which is more than about merely doing good “Christian” things. On a deeper level, it is about being changed from the inside out so that we can live abundant and joyful lives for the Lord.

“The soul and the body make a man; the Spirit and discipline make a Christian.” – John Wesley

The Sound of Silence

 (3-Day In-Person Retreat)

In Matthew 11:28 Jesus invited the weary to rest in Him. Jesus came and redefined rest not as the absence of labour but as being in labour/yoked with Him. When yoked with Jesus, the potency of our souls, inner stillness, magnifies itself. This is God’s primary gift to every Christian. In this retreat we shall open ourselves to the divine Silence to embrace Him as our beloved.

Venue: Rumah Methodist, Fraser’s Hill
Contribution: RM380

Limited places are available. Registration is on a “First come first served” basis.

A spiritual retreat is a special time and space set aside to allow us to take stock of our lives spiritually, physically and emotionally in light of our God and Creator. The extended time and space (often 3 days and 2 nights) allows us to be refreshed and renewed.

A retreat turns ordinary time into graced time that can renew, challenge and redirect us. A change of pace allows us to become physically more still and cease our busyness for a while. In this deeper stillness, we begin to glimpse what is happening at the deeper levels of our being.

Such retreats usually integrate times for silence, solitude, meditation on scripture, personal reflection, journaling, prayer, listening to God and rest.

GOD@WORK

A Day to Reflect on Our Work and Purpose

For many of us, daily work is a struggle. It is marked by stress, mess and lack of rest. Likewise, daily prayer is also a struggle. We often find ourselves bored, distracted or distanced from God.  What if we could experience the wonder of God’s love while we work? What if we could soak in God’s presence while we pray? Is this even possible amid the stress of daily life? Join leadership author and coach, Alvin Ung and spiritual director Ng Wai Ling for this 1-Day Retreat as we pray and reflect on Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.

Consider Paul’s words: “It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for”. What are you living for?Paul also writes “He creates each of us….to join Him in the work he does” and by living out our “life work.” What is your life work? Not least, Paul prays: “I ask that…Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in?” Do you long to invite him in?

The prayer retreat is not an exposition or exegesis of Ephesians. This prayer retreat is an experience designed to guide us to love God with our heads, hearts and hands – in our work and purpose.  Alvin and Wai Ling bring combined experiences in guiding seekers, leaders and pilgrims in spiritual and leadership retreats in Malaysia and abroad. Their hope is that together, we may all take in the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love.

Come and join us to… “Reach out and experience the breadth!  Test its length!  Plumb the depths! Rise the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.’ (Eph 3:18-19)

Bible Studies

The Parables of Jesus

Even if you don’t have a relationship with the Bible, it’s likely that you may be familiar with the idea of parables, and even some of the parables of the Bible. We often hear people refer to the “good samaritan” or “prodigal son,” which may be why they are the two most well-known parables of Jesus. But what are parables? What was their purpose? What can we learn from them? How do we study them?

This series, we are going to use each week to unpack some of the most well-known and not-so-well-known parables Jesus taught.

Suitable for those who are new to Equip Bible Studies.

Equip Bible studies are small group studies and require self-study prior to the lesson. Come prepared to engage and interact with instructors and students.

This 12-week study on Gospel of Luke walks through the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. These historical events remain foundational and key to the faith of believers today.

As we study Luke’s Gospel, we will see how Jesus is the fulfilment of OT prophecies in God’s redemption plan — Saviour, Redeemer and the Messiah. We hear the words of Jesus, the friend of sinners. We feel the heartbeat of Jesus, who seeks and saves the least, the lost, the left out and the overlooked.

Through studying Luke’s account, believers will gain a deeper understanding of who Jesus is, His character, His mission, and His teachings. It is a treasure trove that builds up the body of Christ and reinforces the faith of the people of God. May our hearts burn within us with love for Him, and may this love overflow for the salvation of the world!

Suitable for those who are new to Equip Bible Studies.
