Sunday Mornings 10:00 a.m.
Sunday School will resume in the Fall 2017
Adult Sunday School classes teach the Scriptures, how to understand them better, and how to apply them to real life, all in an atmosphere of love and fellowship. Please join one of our classes, and find their value for your life in Christ.
Examples of Sunday School Classes from Spring 2017:
Book of James
Please join us as we look into the Book of James, the eldest brother of Jesus and the leader of the Jerusalem Council. James is writing to the Jewish Christians of the twelve tribes scattered among the nations. James wrote as a pastor to instruct and encourage his dispersed people in the face of their difficulties. This Book is as practical today in it’s application in our daily Christian life as it was in the time of the early Jerusalem Church.
From Every Nation: Discussions on Race and the Church
The vision of heaven includes ALL of God’s people worshipping him together – “all tribes, and peoples and languages”! Yet this is that not the predominant reality within the United States. What is the Gospel framework for us to understand the call for unity in the church across race and ethnicity? How can we be better prepared to engage our culture and draw “others” to the Gospel and to our church? This class will explore these questions and others through teaching and discussion. Class will be limited to 25 people and we ask that you sign-up ahead of time at the information table.
Old Testament Theological Survey Spring Session: The Writings
Because of the age of the Bible and the various foreign cultural contexts out of which the Bible emerged, it is often difficult to understand the message of the Bible and its significance for thinking and living in the twenty-first century. We invite you to embark on a two year journey with us through the Bible as we survey each book of the Bible within the context of the whole scriptures. Our goal is to show how the diversity of the Bible has been woven together by a single Author over two thousand years as the covenantal testimony of the person and work of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit according to the eternal decree of God the Father. As we look at each book of the Bible we will look at the background issues, the structure and outline, the message and theology, tie in to the New Testament and pointers to Jesus. Our desire is that we will come out of this study having an understanding of each book within the larger context of the Bible’s message.
Sticky Faith Parenting Class
Research shows that almost half of graduating high school seniors struggle deeply with their faith. Recognizing the ramifications of that statistic, the Fuller Youth Institute (FYI) conducted the “College Transition Project” in an effort to identify the relationships and best practices that can set young people on a trajectory of lifelong faith and service. We will explore this book together discussing rationale and strategies that will help parents actively encourage their children’s spiritual growth so that it will stick to them into adulthood and empower them to develop a living, lasting faith.
Protestant Reformation – Part II
This year marks the 500th year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation (1517-2017). Since our history developed out of it, we need to consider its importance. The Gospel truths had become buried under tradition and false teaching. This course will focus on how the reformers rediscovered the Gospel. By doing so we should become more knowledgeable proclaimers and defenders of Biblical truth. The Protestant Reformation was not just an event in the past but something that matters today.
