We provide Sunday School classes for all ages. Sunday School is an opportunity to teach the Bible accurately in its context in its original intent with a view to connecting every part of the Bible to the final revelation of the Scriptures in Jesus Christ. This is well expressed in the subtitle to Sally Lloyd-Jones’ The Jesus Storybook Bible, “Every story whispers his name.” After his resurrection, Jesus taught the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, “and beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself” (Luke 24.27). We believe that is our task with our children. The teaching our children and young adults receive will not be moralism.
Our adult classes are not age specific. They are set up on semester schedules with mini-mesters between, and cover a wide range of subjects from Bible books like Revelation or Hebrews to topics like the Trinity or prayer or marriage.

Ephesians: Living as God’s People

How We Love and Engage Any Neighbor
Led by Ryan Moore — Room 205Designed as a continuum of the Neighboring class from the fall where we looked at “What” Neighboring is and “Why” we do it, this extension class will go deeper into the “How” we engage those who might, either, think differently about religion, politics, and culture, or, someone who just comes from a completely different perspective, upbringing, or experience than you. This class will aim to reveal our assumptions about the world we live in that can actually become barriers to befriending and loving others. And it will aim to replace those assumptions with a framework for engaging the many faces of a neighbor. Resource(s): Befriend by Scott Sauls

Judges: Lessons from the Asylum
Led by Collin & Haddon Ryan, Phillip Maxwell — Room 203In High School Sunday School our goal is to take an honest look at Judges and ask: what do we learn from these crazy cycles? And what do they teach us about the character of God and his kingship? In High School Sunday School we will eat donuts, drink coffee and discuss what God is telling us through the crazy cycles of Judges.
