Education

 

Sundays at 10:00 AM between worship services we offer a variety of adult classes for any one to participate in. We study the Bible, have times of fellowship, and seek to learn more about God and how to live as disciples of Jesus Christ. Class topics change regularly, but we have several ongoing groups that meet each week.

Sunday Morning Classes- Winter 2019


Bible Study Class:  A Fragile Stone - Peter: Jesus' Friend

Location: Fellowship A


As much as we enjoy our relationship with Jesus Christ, imagine what it would have been like to take that a step further and be His friend when He was here on earth! The apostle Peter had that special opportunity.


Michael Card traveled to Israel to walk us through the friendship between our Savior and the man Jesus renamed The Rock.In a special video presentation based on the RBC Ministries television program Day of Discovery, you'll travel with Michael as he visits the places where Jesus and Peter interacted. You'll listen as Card reveals the intricacies of their friendship. And then you'll have the opportunity to discuss what you observed in order to make the teaching of Michael's lessons applicable to your own life. Enjoy the beauty of Israel, the insights of Michael Card, and a chance to investigate the unique friendship enjoyed by Jesus and Peter.

 


Fellowship Class:  "Angels" by Douglas Connelly

Location: Fellowship Hall B


What are angels like? In 8 studies, Douglas Connelly, senior pastor at Parkside Community Church in Sterling Heights, Michigan, explores what the Bible really says about angels, including their service to God and their ministry to people.  Topics include Jesus and the Angels, dealing with Demons, Seraphs, Angels among us, Angels guarding us and more. Thirty-four of the Bible's sixty-six books talk about angels in detail.  The word angel occurs more than 250 times in Scripture.  Jesus himself referred to angels as real beings who were involved in every realm of human activity. The Bible also makes it clear that angels fall into two distinct groups, the holy angels of God and the evil angels who followed Satan in his rebellion.  Join us on this adventure as we are reminded of things we have learned before and we will learn some new truths to this wonderful ministry that God's angels have in our life.



The Fellowship Class is a group that values conversation and offers hospitality as they gather to study God’s word.   All studies are centered around group discussion of biblical topics. 



Homebuilders:  "Anxious for Nothing" 

Location: Room 100

Do you feel weighted down with worry? Does the uncertainty and chaos of life keep you up at night? Are irrational fears your constant companion? Could you use some calm?

In this five-session video Bible study, bestselling author Max Lucado explores God’s treatment plan for anxiety found in Philippians 4:4–8. As you follow this prescription – celebrating God’s goodness, asking for his help, leaving your concerns with him, and meditation on good things – you will experience God’s peace. This is a peace that "transcends all understanding" and will help you reframe the way you look at your fears.


Beginning March 3: "Forgotten God"

Facilitator: Mark Simpson-Vos

In this dynamic companion to the book Forgotten God, author Francis Chan reminds us of the true source of the church's power—the Holy Spirit. Chan contends that we've ignored the Spirit for far too long, and that without Him, we operate in our own strength, only accomplishing human-sized results. This seven-session study offers a compelling invitation to understand, embrace, and follow the Holy Spirit's direction in our lives. 


Homebuilders is a class that is open to all, interactive and conversational, focused on fostering fellowship and discipleship in such areas as marriage and family relationships, parenting, financial stewardship, and other parts of our daily walk with God.



SALT (Single Adults in the Lord Together) -  "Thriving in BabylonThriving in Babylon"

Location: 101


In this 5-session series, Larry Osborne introduces us to a man forced to live in a fast-changing and godless society. This man faced fears about the future, concern for his safety, and the discouragement of a world that seemed to be falling apart at warp speed. That man was Daniel, and with the power of hope, humility, and wisdom, he not only survived, but thrived.


The SALT Class is designed to help single adults apply biblical truths in all their relationships.  This class uses a variety of resources including videos and group discussion.
