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...
A Study of James - Led by Doug Whitaker in room 403
The epistle letter from James was "to the twelve tribes scattered among the nations." The study of James will examine the who, what, when, where and how of God's inspired writings as it is pertinent to Christianity today.
Seminar on Joel Rosenberg's IMPLOSION - Led by Lyle and Amy Reece in room 407
This class will read and discuss the book IMPLOSION: CAN AMERICA RECOVER FROM ITS ECONOMIC AND SPIRITUAL CHALLENGES IN TIME? Are we able to discover what the future may hold for our country? Is there a greater purpose for our nation or have we lost the ability to make a positive impact in our world? This class will be conducted in a Socratic Seminar style where students help one another understand the ideas, issues, and values reflected in a specific text.
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.
