Sunday School Classes, Term 3: January 15 - March 5
[Includes onsite Nursery Care, and Children's and Youth Sunday School Classes for all ages.]
As a church we must be intentionally and systematically teaching, training, modeling the gospel (the good news of Jesus Christ's work on the cross to save sinners and bring God glory). It is the vision of our church "to present everyone mature in Christ." The purpose of Sunday School is to provide an opportunity on Sunday morning for men, women and children to meet and to hear of God's plan of salvation and to deepen their understanding of God's Word. Classes are open to anyone who wants to know more about God and his activity in the world and in the lives of people. Classes are offered for 7-8 weeks at a time, and can be wonderful opportunities to grow in faith and to meet other Christ-followers.
A Lifetime of Faith | Sal Siano, Room 201
We cannot live the Christian life without faith. Faith is as essential to our existence as the air we breathe. This class will discuss different ways to grow in faith by looking at regular people from the Bible who faced amazing situations. Through faith in our all-powerful, gracious God, these believers grew greatly in their relationship with God. Each class will look at an Old Testament believer's story to glean the transferrable truths for our lives today. This class is an excellent foundation for new Christians and reminder to those who have been Christians for years. We all need to be reminded how powerful God is and how faith is exercised daily.
Lovingly Used by God | Glenn McElhinney, Room 207
Ever wonder what ministry God calls you to as a follower of Christ? Perhaps you have wondered what it is you have been enabled to do in the church. More than a passive recipient of God’s grace, we are all agents of hope and change in the church, we can find joy in helping others in their faith journey. God uses people, who are themselves in need of change, as instruments of the same kind of change in others. Through the work of the Holy Spirit, God empowers us to be agents of change in our personal relationships, our families, church and community. This class is an invitation to learn what it looks like to be a part of effective change in the lives of others, to see real growth in day to day ministry.
Christianity Explored | Nate Conrad, Room 301
This eight-week guided study in the Gospel of Mark is a great encouragement to the young and seasoned believer alike. Looking together at Mark’s account of the life of Jesus Christ, we explore his identity, his claims, his teaching, theological truths, and Jesus’ invitation to “follow me.” Who is he? What did he achieve for us? What does that mean for us today? Christianity Explored is a way of sharing the best news ever heard, and gives people space and time to think about the big questions of life. Over 7 sessions in Mark's Gospel, find out more about the life of the person at the heart of the Christian faith - Jesus Christ.
Doctrines, Confessions, & Dead Guys | Stillwater High School & Middle School: Drew Wilkins, Rod Holaday & Steve Thompson, NPC Library
We didn’t make it up ourselves; we stand on the shoulders of giants. Wrought out over centuries of dramatic conflicts, refined through uncompromising devotion, and defended with the lives of countless disciples, our faith has been forged through history and will be handed down as an heirloom of truth to your children’s children’s children. Come hear the stories, explore the conflicts, and claim the prize of the knowledge of God that has been defended and won for you by those who walked before us. “And all these, though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promised, since God had provided something better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect” (Hebrews 11:39-40).
Communicants Class | Elizabeth Deakin, Room 303
