College Age and Young Adults

Looking for lively discussion and a walk through the Bible, chapter by chapter?  Join Ken Sanvidge and Shawne Holder as they facilitate conversation meant to deepen faith by seriously engaging challenging biblical texts.  The class meets in one of the end rooms across from the Upper Room Classroom on the third floor.

Present Word Class

A team of leaders inspires a fresh look at biblical stories using the uniform series, The Present Word.  This autumn conversation will center on the theological topic of sovereignty, a core doctrine of the Reformed Tradition. The class meets in the music room on the second floor.

Epiphany Class

Are you seeking a disciplined way to grow in your faith – one that invites you to respond to the challenges of daily living in light of the Holy Scriptures?  Using the workbook series, MasterWork, Kathy Sanvidge, Suzy Mitchell, and Mary Lou Jordan are exploring the writings of the disciple John to the early churches and leadership in the coming weeks.  The class meets in the Epiphany Room, the former parlor, across from the music room on the second floor.

Upper Room Class

This eclectic group of disciples tackles serious theological and biblical issues and themes using a discussion format facilitated by a group of leaders. Currently, the group is reading the Gospel of Mark using the LifeWay Series. The class meets in one of the end rooms across from the College Age and Young Adult Classroom on the third floor.

Worthy Conversations Class

Christianity is about love (“God is love”, “Jesus loves me, this I know”), and Christians are called to love God, neighbors, self, and even enemies. Tony Jones, evangelical theologian, speaker, blogger, and college professor, asks why love is not mentioned when people are asked what Christians are known for today. In his best selling book, Did God Kill Jesus?, he walks through the biblical and historical developments of the doctrine of redemption to help us understand the meaning of Jesus’ death on the cross. This conversations class, facilitated by Bob Trouteaud, meets in the hospitality center of the fellowship hall.
