Adult Sunday School

In addition to the children's and youth classes already mentioned above, our adult classes kick off.

A Deep Dive into Philippians: Join Dr. Eckhard Schnabel in a walk through Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi. In four short chapters Paul encourages, instructs, and guides the church to live in such a way that the gospel is declared and we can mature as Christians.  Ministry Center Rm. 21

Inquirers Group (5 weeks • September 19-October 17): Join Pastor Jeremy and Pastor Kevin in these five sessions. It is open to all, but is especially for people who are new to our church, new to Christian faith, or are interested to learn more about Christianity or the sermon that day. Our times together will be an open, conversational, and interactive, so bring your questions. This is a great place to invite a friend and ask them to join you in learning more about Jesus and our church life together. ---in the Chapel

STARTING SEPT. 26

In addition to the classes already mentioned above, we begin the following: 

Sacred Masterworks for All of Us: Sometimes sacred masterpieces can seem daunting and inaccessible, but God uses these creations to enhance our faith and worship. Dr. David Rox is a  perfect guide to help us experience the masterworks of three great composers: Johann Sebastian Bach (Christmas Oratorio); George Frederick Handel (Messiah), and Felix Mendelssohn (Elijah). We will listen to portions of these works, learn about their lives and approach to composing, and see how their musical and lyrical decisions encourage faith and deepen our love for God. ---Ministry Center Rms. 23-24


STARTING OCT. 31

Once the Inquirers Group listed above finishes, we begin the following:

Tending the Soul: Spiritual Disciplines in an Uneasy Time (7 weeks): If our souls are like a fruit tree and we are meant to bear fruit in the world, what are regular practices that can nourish, instruct, and grow our faith? Join Dr. Steven Petersheim and Pastor Kevin as we examine our regular spiritual practices and encourage one another. Room TBD
