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.

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.

The Messiah in the Hebrew Scriptures

Rod Powell | Room 221

• Looking at Messianic prophecies in the Old Testament
• Focusing on the Hebrew prophets
• Seeing the centrality of Jesus Christ throughout the Tanach
• Understanding the reliability of the texts over the course of 3,000 years

The Story of the Bible

Pastor Gary Dozier | Room 223

Sixty-six books in one big book written by forty people over more than 1500 years in two main languages and several different genres. What is its story-line? How can I understand this massive work? Come join us as we trace the story of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation and learn how to fix our eyes on the Bible’s supreme subject, Jesus Christ, and the salvation God offers through Him.

Bible Study Methods I

Pastor Mike Arzie | The Lodge

In this introductory course, we will cover basic Bible study methods and rules of interpretation with emphasis on accurately understanding and obeying God’s Word. You will develop practical skills that will help you determine what Scripture says, what it means, and how it can be applied. This class will be interactive, engaging, and will have the best snacks!

The Letter to the Romans

Clayton Phillips, Jon Dallas, Max Roslov, Serge Dezhnyuk, and Stephen Austin | Room 222

This 12-week series through the book of Romans will provide an overview of the entire book, while highlighting the Gospel-truth that Romans so clearly articulates. The book addresses the righteousness of God, human sin, the impact of the cross, the sovereignty of God, and Christ-like living.

Christian Heritage of the Northwest: The Forgotten Work of God, a Providential Perspective

Vaughn Longanecker | Room 224

“When your children ask you…Tell them…” (Josh. 4:6, 12-24) What will you tell your children of God’s work in the NW? God worked (Jn. 6:29) to bring the gospel, mission, church, educational institution, government, and Biblical culture to the NW in a manner that is unparalleled in all of history, but few know or teach this miraculous history. In this class we will go over the “dates and dead people” that God used. More than a history class, this is a revealing of God’s work that brought indigenous people to Christ and established a Christian culture that, like the Pilgrims and Puritans, impact us to this day, “for the glory of God”. (Prov. 13:22; Joel 2:17)
