Adult Sunday School Classes are a great next step beyond attending worship services. Classes provide a time of teaching and discussion with an aim of building relationship around God's Word. Adult Sunday school classes start each fall in September.
Thru the Bible
Facilitator: Jan Fekkes
For the next three weeks this class will have guest speakers:
Sunday, May 22: In a dramatic presentation, Katarina, the wife of the Great Reformer, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther, will visit the Thru the Bible Class to personally share how a simple Augustinian monk challenged the greatest power of his day, the Roman Catholic Church, and ignited an explosion of a Protestant Church of many branches that continues to grow to this day.
Sunday, May 29: Dean Hirsch, former president of World Vision International, will speak on Love Thy Neighbor: Matthew 22: 37-39 will be one of the texts used to discuss what is means to Love Thy Neighbor. The question is ‘Who is my neighbor today?’ What kind of neighbor do we want to be? Does this command apply Locally and Globally – even in places like North Korea and Sudan (which Dean has visited many times)? How should we as Christians participate in this new ‘Neighborhood’?
Sunday, June 5: Thru the Bible Sunday School class will be facilitated by Charlie Keith. The topic is "Follow Me " Jesus says to His followers. He will share a World Vision ministry story of how God guides us through His Word, using audibles when required. How " Call Randy " (Lori Fekkes's brother ) in Homer, Alaska led to saved lives and Church unity in Alaska and Africa.
This class is an in-depth exploration of the background, setting, and contemporary application of God's great story in Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation. This quarter we will be finishing Paul's great letter to Timothy as we go through 2 Timothy. Teens welcome. Live Stream and Class Notes Here.
Challengers (Growing in Christ)
Facilitators: Pastor Mich Michl and Jake Krestinski
Class description: Each follower of Christ has a powerful story of God’s faithfulness in his/her faith journey as to how Christ has and is working in their life. Philippians 1:6 says, “For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” Often times it’s difficult to see how God is working in our lives until we step back, pause, and examine how He has orchestrated His grand narrative of molding His children into the likeness of Jesus Christ through the sanctification process. The Challengers Class is enjoying listening to various classmates share their own journeys as to God’s marvelous patience, provision, protection and plan to form His Son in our hearts. Join us for PATHWAYS ON FAITH’S JOURNEY.
Facilitators: Aaron & Emily Klesick, Mark & Nancy Crawford
Topic: “The Relationship Equation” There’s good news for our friendships, marriages, teams and families this year. No matter what stage or shape your relationships are in, Jesus shows us how to deepen bonds and better love the people around us.
Single Moms Life Group
Facilitators: Ron & Judy Hoefer, Molly Christensen
Topic: "I Can't Fix It--Discovering Gods Pathway to Peace" This group is exclusively for single moms and is meant to provide an avenue to wholeness for the mom and her kids by focusing on God’s Word and each other. This current study will look at how to deal with things we can't fix.... involving some issues with your kids... dealing with other people who have hurt or annoy you... dealing with your past which we tend to carry around... and considering your present as you face things that have no visible end in sight. Each session will focus on things in our life that we can’t fix yet we will also see Gods wonderful pathways that are meant for us to rest in. We also have get-togethers away from class…just for fun. Hope to see you!
