8:30 AM Adult Sunday School Class

First Class
Age: All ages
Meets: Room 224
Contact: Chuck Bunn (chuck@bunngroup.com); Pat Brodeen (pat@brodeen.com)
For believers, the sovereignty of God is known to be absolute. As Presbyterians, we hold to the promises of THE promise keeping God knowing that He provides for His people. His people, however, are not always loyal to their own promises to God. Join us as we discover just how forgiving and loving God was to His people Israel – even as they ignored His sovereignty. Perhaps we’ll even see many parallels between our culture and ancient Israel.If it’s been a while since you’ve studied the Old Testament, come join us as we discover God’s provision for His people. Our start time of 8:30 is perfect for those who attend the 9:30 worship service. Come and join the fellowship!

This class for all ages serves as a “bridge” between God’s word and practical application. We love to be encouraged and challenged in our Christian faith as we study the Bible and apply it to our daily lives. We connect with each other through fellowship, social gatherings, prayer, and service projects.


9:30 AM Adult Sunday School Classes

Agape Bible Class (formerly Adult Bible Class)
Age: All ages
Meets: Covenant Hall (Room 315)
Contact:
Sandy Sturch (shsturch@earthlink.net)
Revelation is the only book of prophecy in the New Testament, and it is the only book in the Bible that opens with this promise:  “Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near” (Rev. 1:3). The Gospels present Jesus Christ as the Savior who came to earth to take the curse of sin on himself, dying in our place, so all who believe can be saved. Revelation  deals with the return of Christ to this earth, and it describes the readiness or un-readiness of the Church for this great event (3:20). It describes the tremendous events on earth and in heaven just before, during, and after his coming. Whereas the Bible opens with Genesis, in a garden, it closes with a vision of the Holy City and the eternal reign of Christ with all who have trusted Christ as Savior and Lord.

Agape Bible Class (ABC) is for adults of all ages, for those with no biblical background,  and also for those with a rich background of Bible study.  It is a class of lecture combined with discussion.  All are welcome!  Come and bring a friend!

Christian Thinkers
Age: All ages
Meets:
Room 308 • Various times throughout the year
Contact:
Doug McNeel (dvmcneel@wildblue.net)
Topic: Think on These Things: Christian Life, Culture and the Arts
“Brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think on these things.” Philippians 4:8

Join us for a celebration of the role that cultural artistic works can play in reflecting the Christian life and conveying biblical truth. Painting, sculpture, stained glass, poetry, novels, short stories, parables, movies, classical music, folk music, hymns, contemporary Christian music, rap music and dance, among other art forms, are all fair game for our reflection and meditation as we seek to live a complete life grounded in the conviction that God is the lord of everything.

The course will include (I) a series led by art historian, Patti Strong, exploring Christian themes in religious paintings; (II) performances by singer-songwriter Doug McNeel of his Texas style Americana music followed by discussion of the spiritual and biblical themes in his songs; and (III) additional presentations by other members of the class and guest lecturers. Our goal is to cultivate the disciplines of understanding the cultural world around us through the lens of the Christian faith and of utilizing appropriate cultural works as means of meditating on the things of God.

We would love for you to join our celebration and share with us the artistic works which have been most meaningful to you in your spiritual journey.

We are a class that takes on subjects that might make others “uncomfortable”.  We recently completed an in-depth analysis of two books:  Marilynne Robinson’s “The Death of Adam: Essays on Modern Thought,” which encourages other ways of thinking about history, religion and society.  This summer we are tackling Phillip Yancey’s “What’s So Amazing About Grace,” where he reminds us that grace does not excuse the sin but treasures the sinner.  Join us as we explore the issues of faith in our world.
