Sunday Classes

Come. Learn. Know.

Sunday 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.

Fall Quarter 2022

September 11 – November 27 | 10 AM

Essential Christianity

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.

Theology II, The Doctrine of Christ, The Holy Spirit and Man

Pastor Dave Martini | Room 222

This is Part II of a four-part study of Systematic Theology, looking at Christology, Pneumatology, and Anthropology. But don’t let the big words fool you. We are simply going to be studying what the Bible teaches about the person of Christ, the person and work of the Holy Spirit, man and sin. This class will lay the biblical foundation of what Christians believe about these foundational truths. Come join us!

Jesus in the Gospel of Mark

Max Roslov, Serge Dezhnyuk, Clayton Phillips, Stephen Austin, Jon Dallas,
and Jonny McCormick | Room 223

We will be spending 12 weeks together walking through the Gospel of Mark. We will look at who Jesus revealed Himself to be through the disciples He called, the miracles He performed, the parables He gave, the things that He taught, the people He healed, and His work of Salvation through the Cross and Resurrection. Through all of these, we will see Jesus revealed as, “the Son of Man [who] came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45).

Church History: Early Church

Jeff Rathjen | Room 221

From the time that the Lord first discussed His church, He insisted “… I will build My church…”. The study of church history is the study of how He did, and is doing, that very thing. In this session, we will look at the early church starting with Acts and going through the events of Constantine and Rome. We will be looking at questions like: “How did the church start?” “What is the church?” “Who are the church fathers, and should we follow their teaching?” “What are creeds?”

The Kings of Israel

Doug Gemmill | Room 224

“We want a king!”
The people of Israel clamored for a king, so the Lord gave them one. In this class, we’ll look at the first three kings of Israel: Saul, David, and Solomon. We’ll learn from their success and from their failures. We’ll see from Scripture God’s sovereignty, His preparation of His people for a Messiah that would come from David’s line, and how He righteously directs history. Above all, we’ll be guided by the Word to walk more closely with our Savior, the King who came and will come again.
