Adult Bible Classes

December, 2018 - February, 2019


"Called to Holiness" (John Lloyd and Jonathan Dandy) - Auditorium

What is holiness? For many Christians, holiness refers to the idea of being good and morally upstanding. When referring to the holiness of God though, the holiness definition takes on a much richer meaning.

God's holiness is His defining characteristic. The holiness of God is a term used in the Bible to describe both His goodness and His power. It is completely unique, and utterly all-powerful, radiating out from God like an energy. In fact, God's holiness is so overwhelming, that it can actually be dangerous to approach.

Come explore your own call to Holiness as we study holiness in the lives of different people in the Bible.

 

Psalms: An Intimate, Honest, Faithful Relationship with God (Paul Hinds and Jeff Sadler) -  Fellowship Hall

Join us as we study the book of Psalms.  Over the course of the quarter, you will have read 150 Psalms (15 each week).  In each class we will study one or two of the Psalms from the previous week’s reading, providing the historical setting where appropriate as well as tools for exegesis.

Our goal is for each member of the class to experience what has caused serious students of the Psalms to describe them as Life-Changing. “Reading the Psalms daily is a spiritual tonic par excellence.” “This marvelous portion of the Word of God has become my meat and drink! Now I ask sincerely how anyone can live without these precious messages of hope and trust.” “The prime concern, then and now, is the individual’s confrontation with God.”

Come prepared to heal, praise, and grow through the Psalms.

 

Stories from the Gospel of John (Clint Kelley and Mike Anderson) - Library

This class is specially designed for new Christians and others who do not have a strong bible background.  We will study from the gospel of John focusing on stories about Jesus, looking at the basic principles that He established.  Questions are welcomed and the material will be adapted to meet the needs of the participants.

 

“Counter Cultural Christianity” (Mike & Janna Lewis) - Young Adults - Room 16 (upstairs)

We live in momentous days marked by a rapidly shifting moral landscape. Debates rage. Emotions run high. People unfriend one another on Facebook and in real life. But the stakes are even higher than we might imagine. What if the real issue is the glory of God? How are we to respond?

To pick and choose which social issues we want to speak out on and which ones we’re going to stay silent on isn’t an option for us. Our supposed social justice quickly becomes a selective social injustice, actually missing the point of the gospel.

Join us as we speak to many of the difficult, and often controversial issues in our culture such as: poverty, same-sex marriage, racism, sex slavery, immigration, abortion, pornography, and more. We will gracefully tackle issues young adults are passionate about and often get ignored by our world.

 

“Various Topics” (Barry & Denise Galindo) - Young Married Adults - Room 12 (upstairs)

Join us as we continue our journey to emotionally healthy spirituality. We'll be going over various topics in this area over the next quarter.
