Looking for a place of spiritual growth and relational encouragement? Adult Discipleship Classes may be the place for you on Sunday mornings at 9:00am.
Students of all life stages gather to dig into the Word of God and grow in His likeness.
Paul’s Epistle naturally lends itself to three divisions. The first 8 chapters are Paul’s more definitive theological treatise which explains sanctification, which demonstrates God’s righteousness.
Our class has just completed studying the next 3 chapters (9-11) which is a history lesson of sorts detailing how Israel will ultimately come to accept God’s righteousness.
The last 4 chapters (12-15) pertain to Application - How Then Shall We Live? We will answer the question of how God’s righteousness is to be demonstrated in the daily living of our lives in the world today. To boldly live for Jesus today demands that we offer ourselves as living sacrifices to God, and to not be conformed any longer to this world. Come and learn how to be transformed by the renewal of your minds that you might know the will of God for your life.
Led by Fred Holler in Corridor D, Room 4.
When traveling to a tourist attraction or even the mall, you see maps proclaiming, “You are here.” Yet, in real life, we can easily be confused about where we are in our own story or wonder if we are truly part of an epic journey.
This course will help men better understand their own story and how God can use it. The format will combine presentations, large group discussion, video clips and small group time. We will look at how the past shapes who we are today and learn to be more purposeful in determining the best future: one where God is using our unique design and story for His purposes. We will finish our time with a hands-on project, creating a Lifemap to solidify what we’ve learned and establish concrete goals for moving forward.
This class will be offered both Wednesday nights and in the ADC hour on Sundays, in case you are not able to attend one or the other. The ADC starts on December 10. The Wednesday night programs start January 10. The programs will be in sync beginning January 10, with one doing more material in the beginning and the other more at the end so all the same material is covered.
Led by Dan McClary and Pastor Joe Burchill, this class will meet in Corridor D, Room 5.
Parenting is one of the hardest and most rewarding adventures of life. Because parenting can be complicated, it's easy to let your kids become the center of your attention and to allow parenting differences to cause stress on the marital relationship, which can ware down the marriage, resulting in decreased marital satisfaction. Through the use of PREPARE/ENRICH Parenting Version (an assessment of your marriage and parenting, done online for the cost of $35 per couple), this course will aid parenting couples to: ~ understand their particular parenting style with each of their children;
~ understand a variety of important family functions, such as family communication, child behavioral concerns, and parenting stress, while keeping the couple as the center of focus;
~understand each other's parenting differences in order: to be more unified in their parenting; and to express greater appreciation for how each partner parents, both of which will help the couple build their confidence in parenting.
This course will be held in a group format, and will also provide couples time to discuss specific things. Join Joy E. Corby, Ph.D., a licensed marriage and family therapist, as she helps you understand yourselves as spouse-parents to navigate better the sometimes turbulent waters of parenting, in order to see parenting as a way to grow closer together and to keep your marriage at the center of your lives."

Couples seeking to build a stronger marriage have no shortage of advice from which to draw. But at times, this advice can seem like a “one size fits all” approach. Although there are good, Godly principles that apply to any marriage, we must first realize that when two unique people join together, they form a marriage that is also unique. In this class, we will consider how this uniqueness can hinder intimacy, or, instead be developed to strengthen the union. Couples of all ages are welcome to attend. There is something for everyone. Classes will also include guest speakers. Led by Steve & Patty Dietch in Corridor C, Room 3 through February.
