Sunday School

Adult Sunday School meets each Sunday from 9:30am – 10:15am. Below you will find a description and the location of each Sunday School.

 

  • Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi – Dan Faust & Tim Faust – Sanctuary

    As we study these three post-exilic prophets, we find that their ministry was primarily one of encouragement. The destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple not only humbled the people but made them question if their faith made any difference in their lives. The danger of God’s people being assimilated into the surrounding culture was real and God provided
    Haggai, Zachariah, and Malachi to kick start the rebuilding of the Temple and to reestablish the Mosaic laws. Today, we too can be discouraged as we see our culture turn its back to God. Our three prophets would tell us as they taught God’s people centuries ago to look ahead to God’s
    Promises for the future and be encouraged by His Plans for us.
  • Ten Commandments – Ron Reed & multiple teachers – Overflow

    In a society prone to self-interest and resistant to authority, the Ten
    Commandments are widely misunderstood or simply ignored.
    Monotheistic and authoritative, they smack exclusivity and demand
    absolute obedience. Not even believers, though quick to defend the
    Commandments as part of our heritage, spend much time learning their far-reaching implications or teaching them to our children. John Bunyan said, “the man who does not know the nature of the law cannot know the nature of sin. And he who does not know the nature of sin cannot know the nature of the Savior.”

    The Commandments are truly God’s Ten Words of Grace to us, expressing the nature of God, revealing our need for the saving work of Jesus Christ, and showing us how to live for his glory and our good. Join us as we
    discuss and apply these unchanging eternal truths to our daily living in our shifting and challenging culture.

Choir season typically runs from Labor Day to Memorial Day and usually involves singing during the Worship Service two or three times per month.
