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. – Bible vs World, Don Moore and Christian Thompson, teachers
This practical Bible application class is specially designed for our soon-to-be adult students in grades 11 and 12. Please join us and bring your friends as we discuss what a Christian should know: Bible authenticity, what’s ok while dating, is homosexuality a sin, spouse picking, lying, forgiving, serving, and when to give in. All to be discussed openly and honestly in a class based on the Bible.
Preach the Word: Next Gen
This class for our students in grades 6 through 10 is designed to prepare them to step up and speak out for Christ. We hope our students will grow in these areas that will 1) Strengthen their faith, 2) Help them share Christ, and 3) Give them tools to be foundational members of a congregation.
Children’s Classes – Last week our children through 5th grade saw how God Stopped the Jordan River to allow the Israelites to cross safely into the Promised Land. The people had to trust God’s word through Joshua that they would be safe crossing the river. This week, kids will learn how The Bible Helps Us Live for God and that today we have God’s word through the Bible. Children’s classes begin at 9 a.m.
Adult Class – Singing Praises
We will be taking a break from our Proverbs class for the next two weeks to focus on singing as a church. We will meet in the auditorium during these two weeks and sing songs we know well and learn some that are new. We will have the mic’ed singers join us so we can get ready for Sunday, April 3 when the mic’ed singers join us in our worship time together. Come ready to lift your voices and worship the God we love and adore so very much.
