LEARNING

Christian Formation Classes for All Ages                               Sundays, 9:30-10:15am

  • Elementary Sunday School meets 9:30am in classrooms downstairs
  • Middle Sunday School meets 9:30am in the Youth Room (upstairs)
  • High Sunday School meets 9:30am in the Library (upstairs)

ADULT FORMATION CLASS:  A Roadmap to the Old Testament. Roughly 70% of the Bible is the Old Testament.  Want to have the tools to bring greater understanding to your reading of the Old Testament? This class is aimed each week to discuss specific portions of the Old Testament and how they fit into the bigger Story of what God has done!  What a great way to start off the year!  Very easily coupled with a personal Bible reading plan for you to read through the Bible in 2018 (We’ll offer a daily plan that can achieve this!)    Sundays, 9:30am, in McCray Hall – Taught by Jon Corbett

 

NEW BIBLE STUDY: The Gospel of John – Starting in January – led by Marsha Price

  • Have you ever looked closely at the way Jesus interacted with people?  Have you ever wondered why He said the strange things He said or asked such abrupt questions?  Have you yearned to have an encounter with Him yourself? The Gospel of John offers us rare glimpses into how Jesus engaged people in daily life. 
  • If you’d like to have Jesus walk off the Biblical page and be "up close and personal" with you, join our group.  Our goal is to deepen our relationship with Jesus.  Since that takes time, this will be an open-ended class.  We will be meeting weekly at the church on a day and time that works best for the group.  We will get to the meaning of the text by asking the important question of life: Why? What? How?  We’ll try to put ourselves into the story, to see how Jesus is dealing with people there, and how he deals with each of us. There will be lots of discussion and learning from each other.  I’d like to start in January.
