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 — Lecture HallA 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.

Evangelism and the Early Church
Led by Ray Cosgrove, Josh Estes, and David Welch — Room 201Ever wonder how the early church grew as it did? Certainly, it was the Holy Spirit at work in the lives of believers, but what did the Holy Spirit move those believers to do as the church was just getting started? In an age when Christians suffered intense persecution unlike most of us have seen in the west, did evangelism in the early church even exist? What lessons might we learn today in how to share the love of Christ to those near us from fellow believers who lived some 2000 years ago? Could what worked then help stir God’s church today?

The Meaning of Marriage
Led by Brian Curtis and Rev. Ryan Moore — Room 205There are 1000s of books on marriage out there today but few seek to understand its meaning and purpose from a Biblical perspective. For anyone thinking about marriage one day or someone who has been married for 50 years, this book is a must. The only thing better than just reading this book is discussing it in Sunday school. In this class, we will go through this book, chapter by chapter, teaching and discussing its content, and then seeking to apply to our lives. Join us!

“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.
