Adult Education Fall 2016

Adult Education re-convenes on Sun, Aug 21 during the 9:45am hour. With Bible electives, community groups, and a specialty class, there’s something for everyone.

Bible Electives

Who is Jesus?
This will be an in-depth study about the person of Jesus. We will examine the writings of Paul to get a closer look at this man who changed the world forever. Sanjay Merchant will lead this study starting 8/21/16. Meets in the sanctuary 9:45- 10:45 a.m.

Names of God
In this class we will learn about a different name of God each week. We will explore when the name first shows up in Scripture, what it reveals about God, and how this aspect of God’s person can affect our lives. This class will be led by Nancy Hellstrom and will begin on 9/11/16. Meets in the north building across the parking lot at 9:45 am.

The Book of Genesis
As Pastor David leads us through the sermon series on Genesis, we will study the same passages each week in this companion class. Come and interact with Genesis and each other as we learn from this historic book. Starts on 9/25 led by Bruce Menkveld. Meets in the Common Grounds West room at 9:45 a.m.

Ongoing Groups that Build Community

The Middle Ground
How do people change? How does a person change spiritually, change character? Some people think it’s a mystery that can’t be solved. There are a dozen teachings in the Bible that tell us how change happens with people. It’s not a mystery. There are very practical things we can do to create change. Chad Smith will lead this discussion in Common Grounds East room at 9:45am on Sundays. Join us!

The Young Families
Parents will meet on Sunday mornings and will follow The Gospel Project. The content will be in sync with the stories the kids will be following on Sunday mornings during Children’s Church. The Gospel Project is a chronological, Christ-centered Bible study that examines how God’s plan of redemption unfolds in Scripture and today. Led by Charlie Audino in the CoffeeHouse @ 9:45am on Sundays.

Young Professionals
A class of young, professional adults, single and married who have social events and do community service projects. Hosted by Pastor Bill & Nancy Calvin in the lower level conference room of the north building across the parking lot @ 9:45am on Sundays.

A class for young adults who want to learn, share and grow together. Brent Steinke is the leader. We meet in the lower level of the gray house from 9:45 – 10:45 a.m.
