ADULT DISCIPLESHIP CLASSES

The purpose of Adult Discipleship classes is to help fill in the gaps of a Christian Education for adults while their children are at Awana-Youth DNA from 5:30-7:00pm on Sundays. For this fall we will have three classes, one is for anyone and is entitled “Old Testament Survey” for the purpose to cover the major stories and theological ideas of the Old Testament. The other two classes are a men’s class to grow in character and maturity and the third is a women’s class on developing a discerning heart. There will also be a women’s Bible study led at the church on Thursday morning from 1:30-3pm. There is also a women’s Bible Study Fellowship class at our location on Tuesday afternoons from 1:30-3:00pm. For BSF, please sign up through their non-profit organization.

  • WOMEN’S CLASS “DEVELOPING A DISCERNING HEART”

    This course helps women evaluate their walk with God and determine from Scripture, ways to walk more closely with Him, to be purposeful in relating to others and to make decisions in ways that are pleasing to God. 


    Things we’ll consider: How did God design me? What is my identity as a child of God? And how does that affect my thinking, emotions, and choices? Why do I make the choices I make, act the way I do, or struggle with various relationships?  How might I make changes in how I relate to God and to others?


    The class is limited to 10 people on a first come first served basis. Two hours of outside class study is required. In order to participate, we ask that you be committed to study, attend the sessions, keep confidences, and to share appropriately in class. 


    Class materials are $20 for a download version to print yourself, or $30 for a hard copy that is mailed to you. 


    If you would like to participate, but feel you can’t pay for the materials, there are a few scholarships available. Please let Lorraine or the office know ASAP if you want to take the class so we can order materials.


    Sunday nights from 5:30-7:00pm in the conference room, beginning September 17.

  • MEN’S CLASS “THE MEASURE OF A MAN: 

    During this class we will learn from one another practical applications of the twenty biblical guidelines drawn from the Apostle Paul's letters to his young protégés Timothy and Titus. Yes, how to live according to God's direction--faithfully, lovingly, and spiritually.


    Because we will be going through one or two chapters weekly, you are encouraged to purchase the book that goes along with this class so you can be prepared for discussion and application. It is amazing to see, when each scriptural description of a godly man is discussed authentically, how the Lord changes our lives. Men, whether you want to admit it or not, you need this class – let’s grow together in character & maturity! Oh, and it will even help you with your relationship with your wife and family.


    Purchase the 2016 book online (available from Amazon in both softback or Kindle editions – downloadable through Kindle app on your phone even!)


    Sunday nights from 5:30-7:00pm in the Upper Room, beginning September 17,


    Facilitators: Pastor Jerry Buell & James Needham


  • BIBLE CLASS “OLD TESTAMENT SURVEY”

    The purpose of this class is to get people into the Word and help fill in some of the gaps a Christian might have about the Bible and theology of who God is, who God created us to be, what are angels, what is creation, what about dinosaurs, what about evolution in relation to creation, what about the flood, etc.


    At the end of this class you will know how to read the various Old Testament books and how they work together with Christian doctrine. You will also understand some important concepts that are part of the foundation upon which we build our theology like building a brick wall. If the foundation doesn’t exist, often times this results in Christians having a shaky belief system, or an inability to answer people’s questions. Our goal for this class is that you would not be ignorant and would have confidence that the Word of God is infallible, inerrant, and authoritative; that the Bible is all that is needed to guide us in life and practice of the Christian faith.


    Throughout this class we will cover some of historical books, the wisdom literature, and perhaps even get into prophecy before Christmas time.


    All you need to bring to this class is a Bible. If you want to bring a journal for notes, this would be beneficial.


    Sunday nights from 5:30-7:00pm in room 129, beginning September 17.

  • THURSDAY WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY

    Ladies of all ages, please join us every Thursday at 1:30pm for weekly Bible reading.  While this is not an in-depth study, if you are prepared to share your heart, we expect God to speak to each one of us every week. This time will be casual, highly relational, and focused on application. We hope to have a multi generational group of women who can encourage and learn from one another. Kids welcome if they have activities that can keep them busy, or if they are old enough to participate.  Bring your Bibles and your whole heart and let God speak to you through His people and His Word.


    Thursdays at 1:30pm in the Upper Room beginning September 28
