SUNDAY MORNING CLASSES – 9 a.m.
Adult Class – Don’t Give the Enemy a Seat at the Table – Steve Ferro, Auditorium – June 11-Aug. 27
In this class, we will unpack God’s plan on how to overcome the enemy’s lies and find peace and spiritual security in any circumstance or situation. God has set a table for you filled with a banquet of peace, clarity, and purpose. But Satan is constantly looking for an invitation, seeking to fill your mind with distractions, fear, worry, insecurity, anxiety, temptation, and doubt. By trusting God’s plan, we can keep Satan from taking a seat at our perfect table set by God.
College and Young Adults Class – 1 Thessalonians, Mike Gulley’s Office
Do you ever feel as though your Christian faith has grown stale, that you are withering on the vine when you would rather be flourishing in His service? Impressed by the faithfulness of the Thessalonians in the face of persecution, Paul wrote to encourage the Christians in that community with the goal that they would continue to grow in godliness. With that in mind, Paul taught the people that any spiritual growth would ultimately be motivated by their hope in the ultimate return of Jesus Christ.
Youth Classes – The Lies We Believe (and the Truth of the Gospel) – Christian Thompson and others – Youth House
This study is for our students grades 6-12. Sometimes it can feel like the messages the world is saying are so loud and consistent, it’s hard not to believe them. In this study, we will combat some of the lies we hear with what the truth of the Gospels says. This study is based on the book The Lies We Believe by Dr. Chris Thurman. More details here.
