Women's & Men's Classes beginning September 29 - December 22:
Women's Sunday School Class: “Determined: Living Like Jesus in Every Moment”
This is a 10-week Sunday School Class for women based on the Bible study by local author, Heather Dixon: “Determined: Living Like Jesus in Every Moment” - a study on the Gospel of Luke. In this ten-week study of Luke, we will follow the life and ministry of Jesus as we consider the choices He made on His way to the cross. We’ll intimately connect with a Savior who remained laser-focused on His mission to love the world. In return, we’ll receive a model for intentional living that we can replicate to ensure we are living each day to the fullest and making a difference for God’s kingdom. And together we’ll determine to embrace the abundant life we are promised in Jesus!
*Books are available on Amazon.
Men's Sunday School Class: Discovering Grace, Transforming the Heart: How desperate souls became heroes of the faith through God’s Word in Paul’s Letter to the Romans
We will examine four significant figures in church history, and how Paul’s words regarding the gospel in Romans transformed and empowered them to hugely impact the church and God’s people. Course includes special focus on the gospel as stated in chapters 1 through 8 of Romans, and how God’s grace guides us in all aspects of our lives.
Educating Disciples: The Lord's Prayer
Location: Fellowship Hall A
Every week in worship, we recite the Lord’s Prayer (Matt 6:9-13; Luke 11:2-4) together as instructed by Jesus Christ. What can we learn about the heart of God from a deeper study of its biblical roots and resonances? Our study will be guided by the 14 questions and answers on the Lord’s Prayer found in the Heidelberg Catechism, one of the most important summaries of Reformed belief and practice. Our goal will be to pray this prayer more intentionally, with a more thorough understanding of how it brings glory to God and spiritual flourishing to us His children. There will be a variety of leaders for this class.
This class focuses on deep study of the Scriptures in order to approach God more intimately and to understand the unfailing grace offered to imperfect people. We seek to learn how to live out our calling as beloved children of the one true God by pondering the lives of those who have gone before us, the "great cloud of witnesses for the faith" (Heb 12:1). Above all, we want to know Christ and the power of HIs resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, that we may become more like Him (Phil 3:10).
Fellowshipping Disciples: 1 Peter: Walk the Talk
Location: Fellowship Hall B
Becoming holy begins in our mind, “If you want to act holy, you have to learn to think holy”, 1 Peter 1: 13-16. Thinking differently affects our behavior. We must be obedient to God, forgive others, make right choices, live in peace, and trust God. Join the Fellowship class as we study 1 Peter, in which these topics are explored. This study is based on a Series Builder by Steve May who publishes Preaching Library Everyone is welcome anytime.
The goal of the Fellowship class is to make everyone feel welcome as the class studies the Bible and prays together. The class begins with coffee, snacks and conversation, followed by interactive study on a Christian topic or book of the Bible. An ongoing theme in our discussions is how to live as a Christian in the world, with the challenges of the changing culture. the supportive sociable atmosphere provides a forum for classmates to share concerns, joys and needs. All are welcome anytime.
Establishing Disciples: This class will join the women's or men's classes for the 10-week study or go to an established class that is continuing to meet

Establishing Disciples is tailored to young adults, so anyone in their college-aged years to their early 30s, single or married, will feel right at home.

Equipping Disciples: Will join the women's or men's classes for the 10-week study or go to an established class that is continuing to meet
Location: Room 100
As followers of Jesus we are called to live out our faith at all times and in all places: at home and at work, in our relationships and in our community. To be ready, we need our community of faith to encourage, challenge, and prepare us. This class uses conversation and study to build a community of well-equipped disciples ready to show the love of Jesus to a world that needs His grace.
Supporting Disciples (SALT- Single Adults in the Lord Together): Proverbs
Supporting Disciples is currently reading the book of Proverbs, one of the first self help books ever written. It was mainly written and compiled by Soloman, son of David.
For several dynamic decades, this class brought together single adults for Bible study and fellowship. It has now grown into an active group of senior adults offering more in-depth Bible study and welcomes mature believers whether single, divorced, married or widowed. The fourth Monday of each month features a potluck dinner open to anyone
seeking table fellowship or a mentor in the faith. TGC is blessed to have a wealth of experienced Christians to share their hard-won wisdom.
