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
New Testament Overview II – Room 205: Part two of our New Testament Overview! Last year, we completed an overview of the entire Old Testament, then began teaching through the New Testament books. We are continuing this study in the second half of the New Testament, from the book of 1 Timothy all the way to Revelation. How do we read and understand the New Testament? How can we grasp the original context and also apply the New Testament to our lives today? Led by Peter Barwick, this class will present a broad overview of books of the New Testament in light of God’s plan of redemption in Jesus Christ. Come join us as we consider how to understand and apply the New Testament!
Walking With God Through Suffering – Room 207: Jesus suffered during his earthy ministry, and as his disciples, we can expect suffering will come our way as well. Whether you’re currently in trials, have gone through them, or are preparing for the trials ahead, this class explores how Christians can remain steadfast in the face of suffering. Led by David Keller, this class will give a biblical explanation of some of the causes of suffering, how we can manage suffering individually, and how we as church members can aid one another in weathering the storms of life. This class will help you build your life more firmly on the rock of Christ, so that when the winds and the waves come, you can endure them.

Student Ministry & Children’s Sunday School
Student Ministry – Abiding In Jesus Study: We’re kicking off our new Student Ministry Sunday School class, for 5th – 12th grade students. This fall we will be going through a study on how students can abide in Jesus (John 15:4) in their daily lives.
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.
