Adult Sunday School Class Offerings

Sept. 15 – Dec. 22

Class Title                                                       Location

Discovering the God of Creation                       Library

If you’ve ever wondered if science denies or supports the theory of evolution, join us all this fall for the latest discoveries and scientific evidence which uphold the hand of God in the miraculous “Intelligent Design” of the universe. We open in September with “Darwin’s Black Box” the meticulously researched study from Chemical Biologist Dr. Michael Behe which launched the Intelligent Design movement. Behe’s persuasive challenges to evolutionary theory clearly present evidence for God’s design in nature. Join us for this illuminating scripture-based study. (Taught by Rick Gathman)

Engaging the Scriptures                              Basement next to Finance Office

A lively study of that morning’s worship service scripture will take place. Information and questions will be presented by the class leader. Opportunities for discussion and pre-reading will provide preparation and insight into the background and culture of the time and place of the scripture passage. You will find this class to be an opportunity to learn and be prepared for morning worship. (Taught by Victor Vogel, Marcia Thomas, and Dave Shrom)

Issues and Headlines:                                       2nd room on Left in Ed. Wing

What Role Does Our Faith Play?                    

Every day brings new headlines and stories that challenge our ideas about good and evil, power and politics, the environment and technology.  What part does our faith play in how we both understand and respond to current events?  Come and join Pastor Ryan, Youth Director Matt Rishell, and Elder Bonnie Troxell as we look for God’s point of view on the news and issues of our time. This is a chance for students and adults to share their unique perspective and experiences, and to explore together how the Bible contributes to our conversations. (Taught by Matt Rishell, and Bonnie Troxell)

 The 5 Love Languages                                1st room on Left in Ed. Wing

The 5 Love Languages® by Gary Chapman, Ph.D. is one of Chapman’s most popular titles, selling over twelve million copies and winning a place on the New York Times best-sellers list since 2007. Chapman has been directly involved in real-life family counseling since the beginning of his ministry years.  Dr. Gary Chapman presents a simple truth: relationships grow better when we understand each other. Everyone gives and receives love differently, but with a little insight into these differences, we can be confidently equipped to communicate love well. This is true for all forms of relationship – for married or dating couples, for children and teenagers, for friends and coworkers, for long-distance relationships, for those brand-new loves and for the romances that are older than the hills.  In this class, we will dive into this book and watch the corresponding videos presented by Dr. Chapman himself!
