Do you want to understand more about Jesus, the Bible, and faith?
Our church has many members with abilities to teach others and lead discussions on the Bible, Christian living, and finding our place in God's world.
Our faith is not blind faith. We are confident knowing God in our own lives, and how to share that knowledge in our modern world. And the goal of all of our classes is not simply the accumulation of knowledge, but rather the formation of our hearts and minds so we can be more fully equipped witnesses and followers of Jesus.
Adult Ed classes are enjoyable, enlightening, and engaging. These classes are offered throughout the year on Sundays at 9:00. You don’t need to sign up and can start coming at any time. Some people participate in the discussion and some just sit in and observe. Classes are in the ADULT ED wing on the south side of the building. And the coffee is good. Also, there are exciting classes for children, middle school, and high school students at this time as well.
What I like about class...
Tim Keller, "Prayer - Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God" - Led by Mike Tebo
We will study Tim Keller's recent and wonderful book for 13 weeks. If your prayer life needs encouragement and guidance to strengthen your desire and skills at communicating with God, like my prayer life, join us in this low-key, participative class. The paperback costs $8 and we will read about 20 pages a week.
June 4 through June 25 - Joy in All Circumstances - Paul's letter to the Philippians - Led by Carl Peterson
Christian living - having the mind and heart of Christ - will surely bring opposition and trouble from the world around us. Paul experienced this (He wrote Philippians from prison), yet he refused to stop rejoicing. Is Paul a nut job, or does he have reason to "rejoice in the Lord always" that you and I need to know about?
July 9 through August 13 - Six lessons from Ephesians - Led by Sheryl Anello
We will explore Paul's letter to the church at Ephesus, one he stayed with and wrote of no particular heresy in their midst. Yet, they later were admonished in the Book of Revelation for having forsaken their first love.
The three ongoing themes in our Discovery series are:
The Bible is a big book that can appear overwhelming and worse, irrelevant. This is definitely not the case. You will learn about how the Bible is the reliable and readable story of a loving God who saves the world from itself.
In the age of the internet, we are becoming more aware of how many different ideas, religions and philosophies are out there. We will ask hard questions in order to discover liberating truth in a pluralistic world.
Our lives find fulfillment when we love God, but to do that, we need to know who He is. We will engage with the Biblical truths of who God is, what He has done for us, and what he desires for our lives.
