Adult Sunday School Classes – Winter

Winter Quarter: December 4, 2016 – February 26, 2017
 
Creation and Salvation
Teacher: Gil Holcomb
Room 107/118
 
During the month of December we will look at God’s promise of a Savior, His affirmation of that promise and the Savior’s birth. This will be followed up in January with a unit focusing on all of creation praising God and His worthiness of that praise. Psalm 97 says, ”the heavens declare His righteousness and all the people see His glory.”  In February we will examine the birth of the “church,” and see how Christ’s death and resurrection created the way for fallen humanity to come to God. Praise God for making us heirs of the promise and delivering us from bondage.
 
A Letter of Paul to Titus
Teacher: Stuart Mikul
Room 105/116
 
A gentile by birth, Titus, was converted through the ministry of Paul. He accompanied Paul to Jerusalem at the time of the apostolic council. He was Paul’s emissary to the church at Corinth during the third missionary journey. Paul left Titus in Crete to use his administrative gifts to help the work there. Later, Paul asked him to join him in Nicopolis, where Paul then sent him to Dalmatia. Paul wrote this letter to Titus while Titus was ministering in Crete. Topics of the letter include qualifications for elders, instructions to various age groups, relationship to government, and relation of regeneration to human works and to the Holy Spirit. (Charles Caldwell Ryrie) Please join us for the next quarter as we study this book together on topics that have great relevance at this time.
 
Studies in Exodus: One More Night with the Frogs
Teacher: Bruce Trueblood
Fireside Room
 
Exodus is a study about a people leaving a place where God put them, to go to a place where God promised them, all during a time God prepared for them. Throughout the journey God revealed Himself as the redeemer, the deliverer, the guide, the lawgiver, and the provider – Jehovah – the all sufficient one.
 
Higher Ground: From Memorization and Frustration, to Realization and Relationship
Teacher: Frank King
Room 200
 
What if you were equipped to speak Scripture word-for-word from memory anytime, anywhere, to anyone without fear of failure? What if you were selected to meet God, not just from words on a page, but LIVE and in person? What do either of these have to do with memorizing? The answer may surprise you.
 
Sunday Morning Prayer Group
Led by Mike Graham
Room 223
 
Philippians 4:5-7 says, “Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all.  The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”  You are invited to take part in what Paul describes as “gentleness” or the Christ-like consideration for others. Please come and join us in giving thanks, praise, and prayer.
