Sunday Classes

Come. Learn. Know.

Sunday Class classes for all ages are offered January-June and September-November at 10 AM. Our classes are an extension of our Sunday Services, helping people understand what’s in the Bible and why and how it applies to their lives.

When you read the Bible, Jesus invites you to know him, learn from him, and find rest in him. God repeats that invitation through the New and Old Testament. For example, in Matthew 11:29 Jesus says, “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

Sunday Classes are another opportunity to know Jesus and learn from him.

We usually meet in smaller settings, and dive into a specific book of the Bible or topic. Church leaders and guest speakers lead the classes, which often include time for questions during or after the class. Classes meet at 10:00 am between the first and second Morning Services, and new classes are available each quarter.

Essential Christianity

offered quarterly

Pastor Scott Gilchrist | Room 221

This class is for those who are looking into Christianity for the first time, want a refresher course of what they have learned in the past, and those who want a clearer understanding of the essential, foundational truths of the Christian faith.

Spring Quarter 2024

April 7 – June 20 | 10 AM

Practical Evangelism

Pastor Gary Dozier / Gymnasium

Jesus left His church with some of the clearest marching orders: Go and make disciples. This class is a practical, how-to class on the first stage of making disciples, evangelism. If you have ever wondered how to start a gospel conversation, or if you are just looking for new ways to share the gospel, this class is for you. We will explore how every believer is uniquely equipped to fulfill the Great Commission and learn methods of sharing this Great News.

Paul’s Letter to the Philippians

Serge Dezhnyuk / Room 222

Writing his letter to the Philippian church, Paul had experienced many difficulties. Yet, his letter is permeated with the theme of “joy”. What was Paul’s secret? How could Paul remain joyful in such circumstances? We find out in this letter. Philippians has a great wealth of themes and covers many doctrines of the Christian faith, speaking profitably to Christians at every level of spiritual understanding, age, and maturity. Paul made it his personal goal of coming to know Jesus better. Join us whether you’re discouraged, or already joyful, as we learn more about our precious Savior.

Spiritual Disciplines in the Christian Life

Steve McNally / Room 223

In this class we will be going through Donald Whitney’s book, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life. We will examine the practices of reading Scripture, prayer, worship, serving and more, with the goal of using them more effectively and consistently in our walk with the Lord, to become more like Christ.

Please note: Having the book is not required, but will be helpful. You can find the book through Christian Book Distributors, Amazon, or your preferred bookstore.

Old Testament Overview: Joshua Through Esther

Doug Gemmill / Room 224

This class will be a broad overview of the history of Israel from Joshua through Esther, from conquering and settling in the Promised Land, during the kingdom, splitting the kingdom into two parts, heading into captivity, returning from captivity, and will end with the story of Queen Esther. We shall see how the Lord dealt with Israel and with her enemies, those from without and from within. Come and learn how all these things point us to our Lord Jesus Christ, and give us a sense of how the Lord is in control of history.
