Adult Classes – The Preaching About Jesus in The Acts of the Apostles, Auditorium Class, March 13-April 17
How did the apostles teach and preach about Jesus in the earliest days after Jesus’ resurrection? To understand that, we will consider six passages in Acts, including Peter’s Pentecost sermon (Acts 2), the earliest preaching of Peter and John among the Jews (Acts 3-4), Philip’s preaching to the Samaritans and the Ethiopian official (Acts 8), Peter and Cornelius (Acts 10-11), Paul’s synagogue sermon at Pisidian Antioch (Acts 13), and Paul’s preaching of Jesus as king in Thessalonica (Acts 17).
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 reground 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’ 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 – God Defeated Jericho last week to prepare for when God Gave the People the Land as our children through 5th grade continue their journey through the Bible in Joshua, chapters 7-11. Children’s classes begin at 9 a.m.
Adult 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.
