Adult Classes – His Eternal Plan, Fellowship Hall Class, March 13 – May 29
This class answers several fundamental questions about God’s Plan for us. It is perfect for new Truth Seekers, who need to hear God’s Plan from beginning to end in order to understand the big picture. It is also perfect for veteran Truth Seekers, who want to be able to explain God’s Plan to others in a logical way or want to re-ground themselves in His plan. It is based on three major pillars: 1) There is a God, 2) The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and 3) Jesus is the Son of God.
College Age Class – Galatians Study, Mike Gulley’’s Office
Galatians presents that our righteousness comes through Jesus and no one or nothing else! Jesus perfectly measured up to God’s Law because God knew that we would not and could not measure up. And so, He became our righteousness. Every act of obedience in Christ’s life was done on our behalf. He paid the penalty for our sin so we could be adopted into God’s family. All glory belongs to God!
Youth Classes. – Identity: Who Am I and Who Will I Become? April 3 – May 29
Who am I? What is my purpose? Where do I belong? These are just a few of the types of questions on which our culture seems to be hyper-focused. During this time together, we will be diving into many of these questions and understanding God’s perspective of who we are and who we can become. For grades 9–12, taught by Christian Thompson and Frank Overcast.
Timothy: Learning to Run the Race
As a young minister, Timothy faced all sorts of challenges. Step by step, Paul patiently instructed him and in doing so instructs us today. He tells us “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called”-I Timothy 6:12. In this class, we will be looking at Paul’s instruction for Timothy and how it might apply to us today. Taught by Hal Good, this class is for our students in grades 6 – 8.
Children’s Classes – Children through 5th grade this Sunday begin studying the time after Joshua died when the Israelites began to live under the rule of judges. They would obey the judge for a while and experience peace. But in time, they forgot God again, and the cycle of sin would repeat. This week’s lesson is called The People Kept Sinning. Children’s classes begin at 9 a.m..
WEDNESDAY EVENINGAdult Class – Themes from Proverbs
Proverbs is about making godly choices, the kinds of choices in life that bring honor and glory to God, or – as Proverbs would put it – choices that demonstrate “the fear of the LORD” (Prov. 1:7). In this study on the book of Proverbs, we’ll look closely at some of its main themes and learn about godly wisdom.
