Sunday School: Investigating God’s Instructions

Module 2: November 3 – December 22 (No SS on December 1)

Adult Classes

“Discussion of Sunday Messages” (Dan Ashton) – Read and discuss the passages that will be used in that morning’s sermon. This is very helpful in preparing our minds for the message. (Meets in the Activity Room near the Kitchen)

“Doing Life Together: The Care and Maintenance of a Healthy Community Group” (Brad Fox & Jim Sandberg) – This module will seek to “look under the hood” of a typical small group to identify what makes it healthy or unhealthy, and how it works to facilitate authentic community in the Body of Christ. As always, God’s Word will define for us what that kind of community looks like. If you’re not in a Community Group, this class will tell you why you want to be. If you are, this class will help you make it better. (Meets in the Activity Room away from Kitchen)

“Ruth: A Story of Redemption” (Diana Jones, Ladies class) – Ruth is a story, which illustrates true friendship and love, the type of redemption Christ has for us, new life in Christ, and affirms King David’s right to throne, through lineage of Boaz. Join us as we take a fresh look at the story of Ruth and God’s redemption and grace. (Meets in the classroom near the men’s restroom in the Education Wing)

“How to Feed Yourself from the Bible” (Dan Wright) – This class is similar to last season’s “How to Study the Bible for Yourself”, but with some expanded ideas. Not only will we look at some of the online tools for studying the Bible as well as different Bible study methods, we will also talk about how to incorporate these personal Bible study methods into a small group along with some practical homework exercises. (Meets in Education Wing, first room on left)

4 year olds – 2nd Grade (Jennifer Sandberg & Carol Purdy)  Using “Hands On” Bible curriculum, this class will be learning about the lives of several people from the Old Testament – School and Getting Wisdom (Solomon and Daniel), Elijah and Ahab, and Ezra and Nehemiah.

3rd – 5th Grade (Karen Ashton): “How Majestic Is Your Name” The names of God are wonderful revelations of His majestic character. This study presents the Hebrew names of God in the Old Testament and the names of Christ and the Holy Spirit in the New Testament. Each lesson encourages children to see and rejoice in the goodness and greatness of God as they explore the meaning of His glorious names. (Meets in education wing, second room on left)

As the year progresses, the study will take them to the final book, Revelation.  (Meets in the Sr. High room downstairs)
