Our second installment of New Testament Survey will focus on the letters, or epistles, written to the first Christians. We will consider the letters of the apostle Paul (letters written to the Colossians, to Philemon, and to the Galatians, the Philippians, and the Thessalonians) and also the letters of Jesus' closest friends and disciples, John and Peter, and of his brothers, James and Jude. In these ancient letters we find words of encouragement, thanksgiving, correction and warning--all of which are still relevant to the church today.
ADULT: Parenting II
Teacher: Jim & Rachel Van Eerden
Classroom: Fellowship Hall
This course in "Family Heritage" will present the challenges and opportunities of passing on a godly heritage on to our children. It has been written that the family of God is primarily made to grow through the faithful families of men. Join us in exploring some principles by which we can become more intentional about building a heritage for our children and grandchildren.
SENIOR YOUTH (8th-12th Grade): Post Tenebras Lux
Teacher: Dr. Neil Stewart
Classroom: Pastor's Study
On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the church door at Wittenberg. It's in your history book, but that was a long time ago - practically ancient history. Does the theology of the Reformation belong on a dusty old bookshelf of a crusty old Latin scholar? Or does the Reformation still have significance today?
JUNIOR YOUTH (6th-7th Grade): Own It
Teacher: Mr. Drew Bash
Classroom: Adult II
Do you own it? Your faith. It's the faith of your parents, your grandparents, but do you own it as your own? Delve into the questions of the Christian faith and get the answers you need about your purpose, why we sin, how we are saved, and why.
LATE ELEMENTARY (3rd-5th Grade): The Great Story
Teacher: Mr. Jonathan Finley
Classroom: Student I
The great story begins as we view redemptive history through the lens of Eden. We will examine the unfolding of God's promises through the exodus, David's dynasty, and the exile--all culminating in the coming of Christ. The class emphasizes the thematic unity of the scriptures and highlights key elements to help students understand the historical structure and theological unity of God's redemption of mankind.
EARLY ELEMENTARY (K-2nd Grade): Studying God's Word
Teacher: Mrs. Mary Link & Mrs. Sharon Pace
Classroom: Student II
The elementary courses are taken from Great Commission Publications. This trimester will focus on what it means to become devoted to God’s Word. Using stories and passages from both the Old and New Testaments, children will discover more about Jesus and God's Word as well as what it means to hide God’s Word in their hearts and live by it.
PRESCHOOL (Ages 2 - Pre-K): OUR SAVIOR
Teacher: Mrs. Heather Essary & Mrs. Grace Moss
Our preschool class uses the Great Commission curriculum which is rich with Bible stories and applications. There's always a craft and a "Take Home" to share the lesson with parents for reinforcement later during family devotions. This trimester will present Jesus’ love for his people, his death and resurrection, his ascension, the promised Holy Spirit, and the Lord’s return one day.
Our nursery offers a safe, clean, and beautiful space where little ones ages 0-2 can rest, wiggle, or play while their parents attend Sunday School or worship. A large soft rug surrounded by painted scenes of paradise and plenty of engaging toys on nearby shelves offer infants and crawlers their own quiet space. Toddlers will enjoy the adjacent toddler space with full size playhouse and toddler slide in their very own area lined with our carefully selected children's library. There is also a quiet and private crib room in the back for nursing or sleeping infants. Feel free to take a beeper and enjoy Sunday School and worship worry-free while your little one rests or plays. We offer goldfish snacks to toddlers and will be happy to feed infants snacks or milk you provide.
