"How weighty to me are your thoughts, O God, how vast are the sum of them! I try to count them- they are more than the sand; I come to the end- I am still with you."
Faith Formation takes place over a lifetime. Scripture that meant one thing to us in our youth, takes on new meaning as adults. We never come to the end of God's word; it is always new! There is something new every day so we offer classes to address different learning styles and faith needs.
The Present Word Class has a lecture/discussion format and uses The Present Word Uniform Lesson Series curriculum. This year will study the book of Genesis in developing sessions on God’s creation of the universe, earth, and people. It also details how God continues to co-labor with sinful humanity in reconciling and re-creating order in all things.
Parents of children from preschool 4 years old through 5th grade can attend Family Sunday School with their children. This is an interactive, fun class that teaches children and adults the historical background and meaning of Bible stories and how the stories impact their daily lives.
The Wired Word Class is a discussion based class that examines the facts surrounding a recent news event and then looks at it through the lens of scripture; asking the question, "How should we as Christians respond?" The class is provocative and discussions lively but with respect for all viewpoints.
The Life Applications Class focuses on deepening our relationship with God through practical application of the biblical text. The typical class will take one passage of scripture, one story, mine that story and bring out its truths. We then explain it, illustrate it and discuss how to apply it. As we apply these truths in our lives, we will have Life, and have it more abundantly.
Our small groups are about fellowship, bible study and service. Our women can join fellowship circles, a Wednesday morning bible study led by Reverend Daria Ragan and Women with Faith, a group for women of all ages and stages of life and faith. Men can attend a quick Wednesday morning fellowship at Caravan Coffee with Reverend Sam Warner, and a Saturday morning Men's Breakfast with devotion. We offer special short term classes on marriage and parenting. Our Young at Heart group is a fellowship group mostly for older adults. Sam also leads a book discussion group on Wednesday evenings. We are having a fall class of Financial Peace University from September 15- November 10. Please click here for more information and to register.
