West Campus Adult Sunday School

9:45 a.m. - 10:45 a.m.

 

Gospel Project – God the Son & God with Us

Facilitators: Susan Coppage, Lissa Eggleston, Room 202

The Gospel Project continues as we begin our study of New Testament Scripture and learn about God among us. If you have children in Sunday school they will be studying similar material and we hope this will encourage some valuable family discussion. This class is new every week so come anytime and join the discussion.

Men’s Study

Facilitators: David Wild, Blair Garnett, Room109

Men – you have been most enthusiastic about a Sunday school class just for you and we are continuing the class. This quarter we will be finishing The Man in the Mirror before looking at our purpose in life via Rick Warren’s A Purpose Driven Life. If you haven’t read the book, or it’s been awhile since you read it, a DVD will be presented before having a healthy discussion. Between discussing issues most men face and obtaining clarity about our purpose we should continue to refine what we need to be intentional about. Life is short; be the person God wants us to be. 

Parenting Teens

Facilitators: Martha Wild, Chuck & Kim Jones, Room 201

Parenting can be a rewarding and challenging endeavor; often experiencing both highs and lows in the same day (sometimes the same hour). Parenting teenagers can especially feel like an emotional yo-yo, with more questions than answers. Join us as we seek to wrestle with relevant topics through a biblical lens. Each week we will look at either a short video or teaching followed by a facilitated group discussion on that topic.

Rediscovering Prayer

*Six-week class from March 5 – April 9*

Facilitator: Janice Burns, Room 108

We’ll continue our class on prayer for a few short weeks, leading in to Jenny’s class, Between the Testaments. We’ll be looking at the prayer practices of the historic church while being resourced for new ways of prayer for our relational journey with Christ.

Between the Testaments

*Seven-week class from April 16 – May 28*
Facilitator: Jenny Daniel, Room 203

The Old Testament closes with a somewhat disheveled group of Jews, recently returned from their exile in Babylon and struggling to make sense of their recent history. Prophets still played a most significant role in society, alternately encouraging and admonishing their listeners. And then…four hundred years of silence. Then we turn from the last page of the Old Testament to the first page of the New Testament and find a whole new cast of characters, Sadducees, Pharisees, Herodians, Zealots, etc. - and we seem to be expected to know who they are! After all, everyone in the story knows! Who are these people? Who’s in charge now? And where did the prophets go, for goodness sake? Come and explore those four hundred years of “silence,” which really weren’t silent at all.
Deepen your understanding of the context in which the New Testament was written. You’ll find a fascination with this period, and some things that were previously puzzling may become clearer. Hope to see you in Sunday School!

 


East Campus Adult Sunday School

9:15 a.m. - 10:15 a.m.

 

Between the Testaments 

*Six-week class from March 5 – April 9*
Facilitator: Jenny Daniel, Boyd Hall

See description under West Campus Sunday School for this study of the four hundred years between the Old and New Testaments.

Foundations

*Seven-week class from April 16 – May 28*
Facilitator: Rusty Gregg, Boyd Hall

It’s a challenging time in which to live. Each day we move among people persuaded that life experience, feelings, and personal preference provide the basis for a reliable, custom-made worldview. Christians profess to be committed to a system of thought that centers on our profound trust in a sovereign God. Do we understand the God of the Bible sufficiently and are we grounded enough in Reformed thought to face the changing vicissitudes of life? Foundations will explore essential tenets of the ECO, Presbyterian Confessions, and core theological riches contained in Scripture.

International Sunday School Class

Facilitators: Bob Perkins, Cathy Davenport, Library

Our members, for whom English is a second language, gather each week to read over the worship bulletin and to practice their English skills by reading the sermon Scripture passage, responsive readings, as well as the lyrics to hymns and praise songs. Members also pray for each other and the church regularly.
