Sunday Morning Bible Classes

Watch Out! A Study of 2 Peter and Jude

Please join us for our Sunday morning Bible class series! Classes begin at 9:35 a.m.

During December-February, our adult classes will study 2 Peter and Jude. Both books, which are remarkably similar, discuss God’s coming judgment and the moral authority of Jesus, and they both warn against immorality and false teaching that is common in any culture.

We also offer classes for children and teenagers. You can find out more information on our Children’s Ministry page and our Youth & Family page.

Winter Classes For All

Gospel of John

Luke Hartman | A117-118

This class will explore how Jesus is the Son of God, what it means to have life in his name, and how John uses the themes of glory and signs to point us back to God. (This class covers the theme book for this year’s LTC (Leadership Training for Christ). Parents of LTC participants: Don’t let your kids know the Gospel of John better than you do!

Men, Women, and Power: A Christian Response

Jeff McMillon & Various Teachers | A113

In light of current events, people are rightly rethinking old ways of dealing with issues of power dynamics between men and women. Beginning with a reexamination of the David and Bathsheba story (when a king summons you, could you really say no?), this class will consider biblical principles and current events to help Christians be leaders in treating people with respect, dignity, and love.

Half-Truths

Jason Garner | A119

We’re used to hearing phrases like “everything happens for a reason” or “God helps those who help themselves.” They sound like something you might find in the Bible, and they capture some element of truth, yet miss the point in important ways. This class will use videos by Adam Hamilton to begin a discussion of these biblical “half-truths” and how we can work toward the “full truth” of scripture.

Tough Questions Christians Face

Brian Simmons | A105-106

This class, primarily for our young adults but open to anyone, will deal with common questions Christians often need to answer, like “Why do Christians seem so judgmental” and “Why does God allow so much pain and suffering?” If you often wonder about questions like these, or if you want to be better prepared to have conversations with others, this will be a great class for you!

Breathe: Making Room for Sabbath (Small Group)

Sherry Brown | A122

One of our greatest challenges is taking time to cease from all our activities and just breathe. This small group study with videos by Priscilla Shirer will examine the ways we can apply the biblical principles of Sabbath to our lives. Homework is 1-2 hours every other week and study guides are $10. Pre-register here or at Ministry Central.
