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 121

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.

Fall Quarter 2023

September 10 – November 26 | 10 AM

Special Global Outreach classes on November 12

Answering the Cults

Pastor Adam Ferguson

The Bible warns that there will be those who are deceived and who are deceiving others (2 Timothy 3:13). Learn to protect your family and friends by being able to give them a Biblical answer when confronted by those who bring false doctrine.

Old Testament Survey, Part 1: The Pentateuch

Pastor Justin Vanier, Max Roslov & Conrad

During this survey class, we will be looking at the first five books of the Bible. We will unpack God’s work of creation, human image-bearing, the effect of sin, God’s promise to create a new people for himself, God’s protecting and provision for His people, God’s deliverance of His people, and His call for His people to love Him.

The Book of Acts

Doug Gemmill

We have the life of the early church recorded for us in Acts. In Acts we learn about the events and preaching that took place during the years the early church was forming. These include the impact of the coming of the Holy Spirit to dwell within believers, the church’s amazing growth under Peter’s leadership and the Lord’s use of Paul to bring Christianity throughout the Roman empire. The opening of the Gospel to those who were not Jewish, and the impact of the decisions of the Jerusalem Council will also be covered. Come and see how Acts can affect your walk with our Lord Jesus Christ.

Church History
Ecumenicism, Middle Ages, and Renaissance (AD 320 – 1500)

Jeff Rathjen

The Lord declared that He would build His church. It is clear that this is not a human
institution that stumbles along, rather the Lord Himself directs and grows it as He sees fit. This can be a bit hard to understand during this period of church history. We will look at the “Early Church Fathers”, the councils and creeds, and mostly the rise of the Roman Catholic church, the East-West split, and the change from a bishop of Rome to a pope.

This class will take us up to the reformation and we will see how God kept a faithful remnant even during this dark phase of the church. We will celebrate some heroes and boo many villains.
