Equipping Classes (Sun PM)

Our Sunday night discipleship offerings usually rotate on a seasonal schedule, with 10-12 week courses in the spring, summer and fall, and a mini-course in January. These groups offer training in a variety of areas, but most classes fall into these general categories:
  • In-depth studies on particular books of the Bible
  • Theology and related issues, like ethics or apologetics
  • Parenting
  • Marriage
  • Financial Stewardship
  • Leadership training
Discipleship classes run from 6:00-7:30 pm. Activities for babies, preschoolers, elementary-aged kids and middle and high-schoolers are also available during any regular Sunday night classes.

Summer 2019 Class Schedule

The Law, the Gospel, and Ethics - Led by Pastor David W. Jones
How does the law of the Old Testament relate to the gospel of the New Testament? How can Christians look to the Ten Commandments in order to reach moral conclusions on modern ethical issues? Are there any moral topics that are not addressed by the Bible? In this class we’ll explore these questions as we look at the Law, the gospel, and ethics.

Praying at the Crossroads - Led by Pastor Ken Coley
The Bible is filled with the prayers of God’s people. Many of the prayers come at critical junctures of faith—at crossroads of decision. Scripture shows us multiple examples of people turning to God when there is nowhere else to turn for peace, comfort, guidance, and strength. Looking to these prayers of biblical leaders, we can learn to pray with new commitment and passion.

In this class we will learn that the ancient prayers of Old Testament saints have much to teach us in our present circumstances, whether at a crossroads or on our daily path. This class requires purchase of a workbook, either online before class or at the first class meeting. The cost at the class will be $14.

The Armor of God (for Women) - Led by Marsha Jernigan
This Bible study gives the understanding of the different parts of the armor that God has equipped us with in order to fight a real and live enemy. This enemy wants to use all he can to take us down and weaken us in every way. In this study God shows us the Biblical tools to equip us to battle this enemy. This class requires purchase of a workbook, either online before class or at the first class meeting. The cost at the class will be $15.

The Doctrine of God - Led by Pastor Brian Merritt
What’s your concept of God? How would you describe God? How would you explain God to someone who had never heard of God? This study will examine the orthodox teachings about God including the Trinity, God’s nature, characteristics and providence.  Creation, angels, demons, and the problem of evil will also be discussed.  You will be challenged in your assumptions and rewarded with a deeper understanding of who God is and what it means to have a relationship with Him.

Hope in the Midst of Hardship: A Study of 1 & 2 Peter - Led by Pastor John Nyota & Pastor Cameron Wagner
We live in a hostile world mired with hardships. It is even more painful when sufferings strike home. When it is personal, we are more likely to ask the question, “Why me?” Doubts arise as our faith is tested and may lead us to wonder, where is God in the midst of all these tough times? Or what did I do wrong?

How do you respond to sufferings? What does the Bible teach about trials? Come join us as we study 1 and 2 Peter. Another major theme we will study is how to guard against or combat false teachings. If you are struggling with such issues, then this class is for you. We pray and hope you will be able to join us in this study.

Every Men’s Battle (for Men) - Led by Joe Tomberlin and Chris Boren
Winning the war on sexual temptation is Every Man's Battle. Through Bible study, open accountability, and classroom discussion we will confront impure thoughts, pornography, and the root of all sexual temptation, namely lust. We cannot avoid temptations; however, we can have total victory through the cross of Jesus Christ.
