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, as Colossians 1:28 says, "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 signup are provided below!
[The 9:00 AM hour includes onsite Nursery Care and Children's and Age-oriented Youth Sunday School Classes for K-12. Contact Elizabeth Deakin for more information. ]

The Gospel-Centered Life | Nate Conrad and Dave Schutter, Room 303
Lots of Christians talk about the gospel, but how many really understand and know how to apply it to their lives? In this life-changing training resource, Authors Robert H. Thune and Will Walker communicate both to the new Christian and the seasoned pastor the need for gospel renewal. The Gospel-Centered Life helps participants understand how the gospel shapes every aspect of life. Readers will gain biblical insight on the temptation to pretend and perform, what heart idolatry and repentance looks like, dealing with conflict in relationships, and much more.
Second Thessalonians | Sal Siano, Room 207
The book of Second Thessalonians, written by Paul, 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. In this 7 week journey we will finish 1 Thessalonians 5, then spend the next 6 weeks looking at this short three chapter book. We will study Paul’s prayers the second coming God’s faithfulness and godly disciple. In every class we will make application to life at NPC as we study the meaning of each verse one at a time. Everyone is welcome.
How the Bible Reveals Heaven, Part 2 | Tom Minnery, Room 301
How the Bible Reveals Heaven, part two. We’ll summarize what we covered in Part One, on the "present" heaven, and then we'll dive into passages that describe the "ultimate" heaven on earth after Christ’s return. We'll examine passages on the new city of Jerusalem, on the resurrection bodies all believers will receive, and based on what we learn we'll engage in some heavenly speculation based on Randy Alcorn's book on what we’ll do, see and who and what we will know in heaven. Will there be sports? Hobbies? Travel? Work? Coffee?
