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
God & Money – Room 205: Scripture indicates that few things reveal the heart of man more clearly than money and possessions. Knowing that our thoughts and affections toward money are so important, we will spend the six weeks considering what God’s word says about it. Led by David Keller, this class will help us understand how we can honor God by being good stewards of such an important resource. Join us to learn about how to honor God with your money.
Unity & Diversity – Room 207: Each week, we pray as a church for unity and diversity. Led by Jobey Thomas, this class will be an in depth look into those topics. We will seek to answer questions such as: Where do unity and diversity come from? How can we, Christians in minority and the majority, practically live in unity? And what does it accomplish for God and for the gospel? Our prayer and desire is to see God continue to build a unified and diverse congregation at OBC. Come learn more about how we can grow together in these areas for the glory of God
