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 fall semester (through December 15) from 10:00-11:00am
20s and 30s - Martha Blaess, Mark/Kari Galliart, Mark/Susan Gamber, Bill/Jayne Roberts-Room 2127

30s and 40s - Chris and Laura Burton, Fellowship Hall
The Art of Marriage – every marriage is unique, expressed by the colorful personalities of each spouse and textured by the circumstances at play in their lives. Blending these to make marriage work is a divinely inspired art form-challenging, but worth the effort. Join us!

1 & 2 Thessalonians: “How does the Church live until then?” - Ken Rees, Room 2108
Paul’s letters to the church at Thessalonica contain his most concise explanation of the gospel along with instructions about how believers in a hostile world should live as a unique body of witnesses ready for Christ’s return. Class discussion will focus on applying Paul’s teaching to concerns of a 21st century congregations like ours.

Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians - Bill Ball, Room 2114
The Apostle Paul founded the Church in Ephesus on his third missionary journey and spent about 3 years there. Ephesus became a mission sending church to all of the Roman province of Asia (Western Asia Minor). Paul wrote this letter to the church there during his house arrest in Rome. In the brief letter, Paul describes who we, the Church, are – saved by God’s grace and exalted in Christ. He then tells how this relates to our behavior and how we should “walk in a manner worthy” of our heavenly calling. Come join us as we examine our position and what our behavior is to be in accordance with that position.

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.

Mark Britton - Mark Britton, Room 2124
The Study of the Book of Acts

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

Jesus’ Parables -  Ken Mendenhall and Ed Martin - Room 2115
He was of course was the greatest communicator who ever lived. He was straight forward and direct in much his teaching.  But every setting was unique and he used different styles of communication including parables. We will attempt to develop an “ear to hear” as we cover most of these gems.
