Sunday Mornings at 9:15
Taking place before Sunday Morning Worship, our Equipping Hour is another opportunity to learn from God’s Word and be equipped for everyday Christian life. Our Equipping Classes run on a semester schedule during the fall & spring.
Adult Equipping Classes
Old Testament Overview – Room 205: Why is the Old Testament important? How do we understand it? How do we understand challenging Old Testament events and apply them to our lives? The Old Testament Overview class seeks to answer many of these questions! Join us as we consider how the Old Testament plays a pivotal role in God’s masterplan of redemption through Jesus!
Living as a Church – Room 207: In 1 Corinthians 14, the Apostle Paul exhorts the church in Corinth to “strive to excel” in building up the church. As Christians in the 21st century, this firm command applies to us as well. In order to be those that excel in building up the vehicle that God will use to show Himself to the watching world, we must be those that understand how to properly live in community with one another. Over the next 13 weeks we will examine several necessary aspects of how we are to live as a local church. Join us as we learn how to grow in being a church that displays the gospel and brings glory to God!

Student Ministry & Children’s Sunday School
Student Ministry – The Gospel Project Study: We’re continuing our Student Ministry Sunday School class, for 5th – 12th grade students. This semester we will be going through the first volume of The Gospel Project for students. Students will cover all of Genesis by studying Creation, the Fall, and God’s plan of redemption through keeping His promises. Along with this study, the students will have a book that provides devotions for the week that will prepare them for the upcoming lesson.
Children’s Sunday School – Check in on the first floor of the Education Building: These classes will be offered at three age levels: Preschool (3yrs-K), Early Elementary (1st-2nd grade), and Upper Elementary (3rd-4th grade) all using an age-appropriate version of New Growth Press’ Gospel Story Curriculum. The focus is “Finding Jesus in the Old Testament.” This curriculum dovetails with New Growth’s Long Story Short family devotional. Ask at our book table for a special deal on this resource for the whole family!
