Adult Sunday School Regathering

Sundays from 9:45-10:45 AM

 

We are excited to invite those who feel comfortable to join us in one of three locations for our regathering of Adult Sunday School at the regular time (9:45-10:45, between first and second service).  We are pleased to have 3 teachers who have agreed to lead us.  You are welcome to choose from the following three electives.  We regret that at this time we are not able to offer any specific classes for children or youth during this hour due to the challenge of social distancing.

 

1.  David C Cook quarterlies - taught by Mary Ann Fogelsanger (Crossroads Station recreational area)

 

God Requires Justice, God Promises a Just Kingdom, and Called to God's Work of Justice (first set of lessons)

Wisdom in Proverbs, Wisdom in the Gospels, and Faith and Wisdom in James (second set of lessons)

Since no classes have been held since March, we will be using the quarterlies for March-May and June-August. These supplies were already ordered and received so rather than waste the materials we will be using them for the basis of the studies.

All of you are invited to attend these classes. It is not necessary to have the quarterlies for these lessons. The sessions will contain both lecture and discussion. We would love to have you join us. 

 

2.  Study on the Book of James – taught by Phil Ritchie  (Room 208 and 209, Joy Seekers SS Classroom)

 

The Book of James is relevant to us today.  We will work our way through James verse by verse, in a lecture-and-discussion format.

 

Adversity is an idea that is alien to our culture.  This is so evident in how our society is dealing with Covid-19: unrest and dissatisfaction all around us.  James calls us to reject the patterns of thought that undergird our culture, and instead to pray for God’s wisdom in order to discern the purpose He intends through trials.

 

James warns us about how dangerous our words can be, and the need to tame our tongues. 

 

James’ harshest words concern the abuse of wealth, and people in the Western world are among the wealthiest human beings ever to have lived.

 

James shows us how we redefine sin, confusing nature with behavior. 

 

James says that true religion is to care for widows and orphans.  We have a responsibility to others. James envisions a Christian community composed of relationships of mutual care and mutual responsibility.

3.  Study on the Book of Colossians – taught by Wayne Brubaker  (lower level of the church)

 

The key verses are: “For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily for, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority.” Col. 2:9, 10

 

We will be studying the book of Colossians to find out who Jesus is, what He does, what that means to us, and how are we supposed to live as a result.  The book of Colossians provides us with the most clear picture of Jesus of all of the writings of the New Testament writings except the Gospel narratives.  It provides a firm foundation for us to use as a springboard as we live our lives in this world.  Come along for the exciting ride.

    We take our children's ministry seriously!  Adults in our church family take an active role by praying for the children in our church family. If you have a child who does not currently have a Prayer Connections partner, we encourage you to contact our coordinator, Linda Dowd, or our children's minister, Caulene Rogers, and we will get your child linked up with an adult prayer partner. Your child will be prayed for and may occasionally find a little note or treat in your church mail box in the gathering place. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact one of these ladies or the church office for contact information.
