Sunday School | 2018-2019


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. Class offerings and links to sign up are provided below!

[Includes onsite Nursery Care, and Children's and Age-oriented Youth Sunday School Classes for K-12. Contact Elizabeth Deakin for more information. ]

Term 1 Classes | September 9 - October 21, 2018 at 9:00 am

1 Thessalonians | Sal Siano, Room 207

The book of 1 Thessalonians was written by the Apostle Paul. It is a letter sent to a new church plant in Thessalonica in Greece, not too far from Philippi. Paul charges the new believers there to be grounded in the Word and to grow and excel in their faith. Paul tells them about loving and caring for others, he implores them to know the specifics of the Second Coming of Christ, then challenges them to live holy in a hostile non-Christian world. Over the 7 weeks of the course, we will explore these issues which still hold true for NPC these 2000 years later.

How the Bible Reveals Heaven, Part 1 | Tom Minnery, Room 301

The class goal is to develop a lively anticipation of the life to come, thereby putting present difficulties in perspective. We’ll discuss passages that reveal surprising details of the “present” heaven and compare it with the new heaven and new earth at the end of the age. We’ll also discuss passages that point relentlessly toward the renewal of all things after Christ’s return. This class is part 1 of 2, and will be continued in Term 2. Participants can take both classes, or each class individually.

Heal Us, Emmanuel | Patrick Lewis, Room 303

Most Christians would say they believe all people are made in the image of God and are equal before him. But do they have any friends of another race? Is there anyone at their church who does not look like them? Does this matter to God? The majority of American Christians do not have significant relationships with anyone who does not look like them, which makes them susceptible to cultural blind spots and less effective as ambassadors for biblical justice. In this class we will explore this topic from the book, “Heal Us, Emmanuel” written by contributions of 30 PCA church leaders.
