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.]
Term 4 Classes | March 17 — May 12 at 9:00 am
Note: There will be no classes on Easter Sunday, April 21, to accommodate two worship services.
Christ in Culture | Dave Strausbaugh and Patrick Lewis
Patrick Lewis and Dave Strausbaugh are following up on the Term 1 course on race and the church. This class will follow the PCA curriculum called "Embrace." This is an important and relevant topic and we hope you can attend! See how the gospel affects and renews us and our relationship to culture and how we can be agents of change in our culture. We look to act on the Christian doctrine that all people are made in the image of God and are equal before him.
Foundations of Christian Ministry, Part 2 | Dave Schutter, Nate Conrad and Glenn McElhinney
This class is built over two terms in which we will explore core concepts of the Christian faith over two terms. During Term Four we will introduce theology by exploring the Person and Work of Christ, the Person and Work of the Holy Spirit, The Church, Last Things, and How People Change. Dave, Nate and Glenn will rotate teaching responsibilities like in part 1. This class is open to anyone and intended to further equip us for leading groups, engaging in spiritual conversations, and wanting to grow in our own faith. You need not to have attended part 1 to attend and enjoy this class.
