The next Sunday School quarter begins December 10.

There will be three adult classes available to choose from.

Review the descriptions and complete the survey below to indicate which class you are planning to attend  and if you need a book provided.

Knowing God

 We will be using J.I. Packer’s book by that title. This classic will be an important tool to help you discover the wonder, the glory and the joy of knowing God. Stemming from Packer's profound theological knowledge, Knowing  God brings together two important facets of the Christian faith… knowing about God and also knowing God through the context of a close relationship with the person of Jesus Christ.  Explaining both who God is and how we can relate to him, Packer divides his book into three sections: The first directs our attention to how and why we know God, the second to the attributes of God and the third to the benefits enjoyed by those who know him intimately.

This class will be led by Joshua Neil.

The class begins December 10 and class participants will need a copy of the book. If you don’t already have one, you may order it (link below) or ask us to order a copy for you.

Worship in Spirit and Truth 

What is worship? What kind of worship pleases God? Is God happier when we sing hymns and recite the creed? Or is he more satisfied by contemporary worship songs and more “off the cuff” affirmations of our faith? Why use music at all? Why not just wave banners and shoot off firecrackers? How do you know when you’re doing it right? Are there certain things that must be included in a worship service? What about drama? Or liturgical dance? Should we kneel? Or is the yoga position okay? Must we be taught to worship God? Or does it just come naturally? Is corporate worship really all that important?

In this study of Christian worship we will try to discover what Scripture has to say about these (and other) questions. If you would like to learn how to experience greater joy and satisfaction in our communal worship services, then join during the winter quarter for the class entitled “Worship in Spirit and Truth.”

We will be using John Frame’s book by that title. The class begins December 10. Class participants will need a copy of the book and will need to have read chapter one for the first class discussion. If you don’t already have a copy of the book, you may order it (link below) or ask us to order a copy for you.

This class will be taught by David Fidati.

Zechariah

Volatile, ever-changing politics. Churches slowly sinking into irrelevance—or worse, apostasy. God’s people suffering from serious spiritual exhaustion. Think the prophet Zechariah has nothing to offer today’s church? Think again! Zechariah wrote to bring renewal to God’s people at a time of deepest discouragement. Join us as we explore his captivating vision of God’s work in the world, and how that work culminates in Jesus Christ and the work he does even today. Through this course, you’ll also learn how to read and interpret not just the Biblical prophets, but the entire Bible, for yourself. 

This class will be led by Phil Postma.

Book: The Bible (no book needed for this class)
