Our Winter Sunday school quarter begins on December 6 at the new time, 9:00AM. We offer Sunday school for all ages and there are signs located around campus when you arrive indicating where you can find the age-appropriate class for you and your family. If you have questions prior to visiting, please contact the church office where any of our staff can assist you.
Garmer Sunday School Class
Teacher: Tim Foster Age: 70's+ Room: Garmer Room (Axson, 3rd Floor) Subject: Apocalypse Now: Studies from the Book of Revelation — Readers of the Book of Revelation often approach it as a puzzle to solve or a code to crack. But its message is for ordinary people, not just academics or prophecy buffs. Revelation is preeminently a book about Jesus Christ, the triumphant Lamb. The book presents a powerful visual portrayal of Jesus’ promise in Matthew 16:18 — “I will build my church.” Its stunning images and symbols are designed to overwhelm us with the power of the risen Christ, to show us that he is almighty, changeless, and invincible, and that nothing will stop him from fulfilling his promise to utterly defeat evil.
Agape Sunday School Class
Teacher: Terry Johnson Age: late 50's - 60's Room: Axson, 3rd Floor Subject: The Piety of the Psalms (Part I) -- We will look at the way in which the Psalms function to shape the spiritual outlook, the "piety," to use the older word, of Christians.
Emmaus Sunday School Class
Teacher: Tim Shaw Age: 40's/50's Room: Admin Bldg., 2nd Floor Subject: 1 Samuel — What are we supposed to see from the rise of Samuel and the fall of Eli? Why does Samuel oppose the establishment of the monarchy? What are we to see in the rise and fall of Saul? Coming out of the age of the Judges where "everyone does what is right in their own eyes," what are the circumstances that lead to the people of God flourishing? We will find application for our own day where a similar ethics of autonomy reigns.
Berean Sunday School Class
Teacher: Paul Rodgers Age: 30's/40's Room: Axson, 3rd Floor Subject: Training in Godliness -- In 1 Timothy 4:7, a believer is charged to "train yourself to be godly." Godliness is not realized by passivity. Training oneself from a gospel-centered paradigm of the Christian life is not restrictive or legalistic but rather liberating and transformative. The training of the artist or the athlete allows them to perform the excellencies of their craft with the freedom of the instinctual, making it appear as natural. Godliness is not natural to us. We must train ourselves using various disciplines of grace to attain the spiritual maturity of Christlike character. We will study disciplines of grace under the headings of Disciplines of the Soul, Disciplines of Character, Disciplines of Relationships and Disciplines of Ministry, using teachings from R. Kent Hughes, Donald S. Whitney and Jerry Bridges as guides.
New Covenant Sunday School Class
Teacher: Miguel D’Azevedo Age: 20's/30's Room: Whitaker Bldg. (4th Floor) Subject: Christian Ethics -- What is the motive of human action? What is the standard of human actions? What is the end or purpose of human action? In our study of Christian Ethics, we will seek to answer these questions as we consider the ethical challenges we face in modern times.
College Sunday School Class
Teacher: Evan Gear Age: Undergraduate Aged Room: Admin Bldg. (2nd Floor, Room 72) Subject: Ecclesiastes — “Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher, in the second verse of the book of Ecclesiastes. Who is the Preacher? What is vanity? Why does it matter to me? These are a few of the questions that we will address as we study this short, yet memorable, book of the Old Testament.
