Sunday School classes meet weekly from 9:30-10:30 AM, with the exception of the summer months.
Choose from the following:
Engaging teachers – Bev Benson, Renie Cooley, and Jackie DiGuiseppe – make the Bible stories come alive for children and teens, showing them what God’s Word means for them and their lives.
This class, led by Bob Ritter, will consider analysis of the growing, popular criticisms of God and the Christian Faith in our society, and the refutations of these opinions in the Scriptures.
The Genevens class, led by Ruth Fisher, uses the International Sunday School Lesson (also known as the Uniform series). This series is a 6-year plan for reading and studying the Bible. By participating in the study, a believer will be given help in knowing the content of the Bible, understanding its message, and responding to that message by living a life of faith and love. The theme for the Fall is “Covenant with God” (Pentateuch, 1 & 2 Samuel, Nehemiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, 1 Corinthians, Hebrews).
The Pathfinders Class, led by Paul Fockler, explores the prophecies of the Old and New Testaments and why they matter for us today.
For the Fall, they will be studying the book I, Jesus: An Autobiography, which is described as follows:
Many people who knew Jesus understood him well enough to admire him, to respect him, and to love him. Others were terrified of him. Some of his own relatives said he was out of his mind. But the politically and religiously intolerant leaders of first-century Israel hated him. So they murdered him. But that wasn’t the end of the story. Not by a long shot
Today, more than 20 centuries later, respected Bible scholars Dr. Charles Missler and Dr. William Welty bring Jesus of Nazareth to you in the most unconventional way possible…by bringing Jesus of Nazareth to talk in his very own words about himself, his purpose, his nature, and his mission.
A Bible study class is offered Tuesday mornings at 10:30 a.m. in the church parlor and is led by Richard Feller. They are studying the gospel of Mark, from a video series led by Dr. James “Mickey” Efird, Professor Emeritus at Duke Divinity School. Dr. Efird has an obvious passion for the Bible and the rare gift of explaining the Bible so we can understand how the ancients understood the scriptures as well as how we can apply the texts to life today. Each week includes a DVD teaching session followed by group discussion. Stay afterward for coffee, donuts, and fellowship.
