Adults

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

Small groups are an integral part of our church. Every week you’ll find people gathering in various places to do life together. As groups meet they are committed to the 7 Core Practices of Discipleship.
These 7 Core Practices equip us to be disciples who make disciples for Jesus! People are welcome to join a group at any time.

Adult Ministries

Sunday School

10:00am  - 11:00am

We offer many options for educational opportunities for adults on Sunday mornings. Whether you're interested in a certain topic of study, a specific age group or diving in deep to a particular book of the Bible, we have many choices for adult classes. These classes are always open to newcomers.

Wednesday Nights

Meal: 5:30pm - 6:15pm       Classes: 6:30pm - 8:00pm

Wednesday nights are a great time to re-charge during the week by joining together for the Gathering meal, then heading off to either a class or a small group.  Chidcare is provided, and classes for every age (kids, students, and adults) are available.

SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES

Classes are offered for the spring semester  from 10:00-11:00am
Women’s Class: Experiencing the Gift of Prayer  - Cheri Fuller - Parlor
A more joyful prayer life starts with a clearer vision - of the gift and invitation of prayer, the longevity of prayer, and the all-out power of coming to God in the midst of a busy life. In this class you’ll be inspired and encouraged and find friendships. Scripture and guided discussion will be included.

Faith 2:42 - Martha Blaess, Mark/Kari Galliart, Mark/Susan Gamber, Bill/Jayne Roberts-Room 2127
A vibrant class of young adults in their 20s and 30s pursuing bible study, prayer, and fellowship. Join us as we gather on Sunday mornings for a variety of video studies focusing on different books of the Bible.

Family Matters Class - Chris and Laura Burton, Fellowship Hall
This class is designed especially for adults raising kids at home. Through all the trials of life, family, and parenting, Jesus is there! Come and join us as we continue our series: “NO RIVAL: The Supremacy of Jesus in all Things,” a study of the book of Hebrews.

Job: “Integrity on Trial” - Ken Rees & Susan Kinney, Room 2108
Come and experience the dramatic reading of scripture in a new series on Job. Have you had enough of the health and wealth gospel...Cozy religion...Bible platitudes...Cheap grace? Intriguing presentation followed by a guided discussion. Our “script” will be Eugene Peterson’s translation, with some omissions to fit the available time.

Paul’s Letter to the Galatians - Bill Ball, Room 2114
This class will be completing their study on Paul’s letter to the Galatians (chapters 5 and 6). In the first half, Paul tells us we are free in Christ: free from our sin, free from the law, free from man-made rules and regulations. In the second half, we will learn what Galations tells us what we are free to….?

Romans 8: Life in the Spirit - Lee Schmidt, Room 2106
What is impossible for unbelievers, and even impossible for Christians in their own strength, is made possible through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Feel the anguish of Romans 7:24 “What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death?” Feel the exultation of Romans 8:6, “The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.” And 8:14, “For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.” So, child of God, join us for this study and know that the Spirit helps us in our weakness (8:26) and intercedes in accordance with the will of God (8:27).

Curiosity & Questions: Jesus and Science - Dr. Wes Fryer, Room 2126
Utilizing the Bible as well as resources from Harvard’s Veritas Forum, Francis Collins’ book, “The Language of God,” and Richard Swenson’s book, ”More Than Meets the Eye: Fascinating Glimpses of God’s Power and Design,” we will explore how a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and our Reformed understanding of Christianity can be complimentary rather than competitive with scientific perspectives.

Acts - Mark Britton, Room 2124
The Study of the Book of Acts. Everyone is welcome and the discussion is not focused towards any specific group.

Men’s Class - Henry Boecking, Room 2109
The Study of John’s gospel…for the purpose of continuing to believe and for evangelism

Romans - Ken Mendenhall and Ed Martin - Room 2115
A study of the book of Romans
