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.

Led by Joe Davis, Andrew Elizalde & John Weiser — Room 205A Study of the Attributes of God. When we come to faith in Jesus many times we ask what should I do? A better question is who is this God that I now have as my Lord? This study will unpack many of the attributes of God and draw us into worship of the true and living God.

Help! I am a Parent
Led by Ryan Moore — Room 201As a parent myself, nothing could be more true. Yet, can I really ask for help? How can I be a parent and admit I don’t know what I’m doing? Who do I go to for help, anyway? And how do I open up about something that seems so personal? This class is for anyone thinking about being a parent one day, who is a parent now, or who is an “empty-nester.” All wisdom and confusion is welcome! Resources: We will use Setting Parents Free by Dr. John Cox as our weekly guide for discussion and teaching, along with other resources periodically.
Led by Darwin Jordan — Lecture HallEvery aspect of our Christian lives has to do with faith. Every part of growth and change has to do with faith. Dealing with sin is always dealing with our remaining unbelief. For instance, if faith expresses itself through love (Gal 5.6), then our lack of love for one another, our spouses or our neighbors have to do with our unbelief. What are the many ways in which we continue to distrust God?
Led by Dowell & Beth Stackpole, Rebekah Smith & Joann Beckrich — Upstairs, Room 211We use the “Show Me Jesus” curriculum from Grace Commission Publications.

“Communication: The Overflow of the Heart”
Led by Phillip Maxwell — Junior High Room 204Communication is a gift from God. Yet, so often, our communication with others is a source of strife, division, and deep wounds. Have you ever stopped to wonder why communicating is so hard? And how does our renewal in Christ change and reshape how we talk with others? Could the way we speak to others and the way we hear them actually become a blessing? Join us as we eat donuts and look at how to communicate as followers of Jesus.
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.
