During the 9:30 hour on Sunday mornings we have a wide variety of classes available. Our children participate in developmentally appropriate Sunday School classes teaching them the Scriptures applied to everyday life. For a more thorough breakdown of our nursery and children's ministries download our philosophy, policies and procedures.
At the same, time adults take part in a series of classes designed to equip them in aspects of sound doctrine, biblical theology, and knowledge of the Scripture, as well as practical areas of ministry and personal experience such as marriage and family, missions, worship, engaging with the lost, and a wide variety of other pertinent topics. For an overview of this ministry, check out the three year scope and sequence document.
Our current adult class offerings:
Resolving Everyday Conflict — Curt Heffelfinger, Kevin Deromedis, and Jason Porrata (Room F5)
Sin creates conflict. Conflict is and will be a universal experience until our Lord returns. This course will look at the root cause of conflict and the practical elements of conflict resolution, including how to deal with difficult people, when to overlook an offense, what makes a good apology, and more.
Systematic Theology 1: God and Christ —Winston Miller, Jeff Andre’, Miguel Benitez, Joseph Torres, David Mudge (Room W1)
Why do we need systematic theology when we have the Bible? Good question. Systematic theology is simply seeking to read the Bible and answer the question, "What does the whole of Scripture teach us today about (any given topic)?" In this course, we will look at some of the major topics given throughout Scripture that relate to the person and work of God and Christ, covering topics such as the attributes of God, the will of God, providence, creation, miracles, angels and demons, the atonement, and others.
Women’s Class - Seeking Rest For My Soul: A Sabbath Deeper Than A List of Do's and Don’ts
- Kelly Simpson (Room F4)
Do you feel rested and ready for whatever life has to bring? Or do you feel more akin to Bilbo Baggins when he said, "I feel thin, sort of stretched. Like butter scraped over too much bread." No matter which category you fall in, come study the purpose and beauty of rest through this course which will trace the idea of Sabbath rest throughout the entire Bible. It will explore themes such as productivity, work, recuperation, 'me-time', worship, and service and ask questions about why God designed humans to need rest. We will explore the reason for rhythms and the beauty of rest in our lives through the lens of more than a dozen passages of scripture.
Anchored Youth – Kiefer Winborn (Conference Room)
Anchored Youth will be focusing on transforming their identity by looking at the gospel. The Sunday morning equipping hour class will dive into a discussion oriented study of what it truly means to be a Christian and how the Bible calls us to live with Christ's sacrifice in mind. By understanding our desperate need for a Savior we are able examine this new identity given to us in Christ.
