This class, taught by Ed Johnson, is made up of the senior men of the church. With the help of our lady pianist, we begin each Sunday in the Chapel with the singing of our favorite hymns. We study different books of the Bible. Each member is encouraged to participate in the lesson. We discuss the needs of the church and actively try to encourage more participation of class members in living out the lessons gleaned from our study. We welcome your attendance with us.
This class is taught by Mark Matthews, who has been the teacher for about 15 years. Mark often teaches from series written by popular Bible teachers such as Dr. David Jeremiah and John McArthur. The lessons are educational, stimulating, and class interactive, with in-depth discussions of the Biblical subject being studied. We believe that the Bible is God-breathed and timeless. Any and all ages are welcome to join us upstairs in the Education Building (Room E206). We love each other as brothers and sisters in Christ, enjoy each others’ company (many times laughter from our room is heard in the hallway!), support each other in the valleys and on the mountains, and have a good time whenever we are able to socialize outside of church. As one of our members described our group: “Big enough to serve, small enough to care.”
We are a collection of college and “young” adults that are reading the Word of God and seeking to sharpen our minds and hide the Word in our hearts. Our goal is to live out Jesus’ promise in John 10:10 “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” Sunday School for us is coffee, breakfast, and a meaningful lesson from scripture. Some of us have kids and careers, and some of us are taking the first big leaps into adulthood. Feel free to stop by and check it out. Our class is led by Karen Reneau, and our doors are open to all! Join us upstairs in the Education Building (Room E207)!
Friendship is a class for all ages, men and women, married or single, led by Damon and Jackie Patton. Our goal is to first form a friendship with God; then reach out to others. We want to promote lasting friendships among class members so we can walk with God and do life together! We do this by studying a variety of Christian living topics. We strive to help meet the needs of people, both inside and outside of the church, as they arise. Join us downstairs in the Family Life Center (Room F201).
The Jane Blair class is made up of single adults and married couples whose average age is 50 years and up, but any age is welcome. Teachers are Bob Reneau, Celestra Rowell, and Martha and Clay Hutsler. Our lessons sometimes come directly from scripture and sometimes from study books. We share plenty of laughs and stories and keep in close contact with members and the needs of the church as a whole. Join us upstairs in the Education Building (Room E202).
The Joy Class is a group of women who seek to grow in the knowledge of their Lord, to walk daily by faith, to practice His presence, and to allow Him to guide their lives. We choose literature by trusted Christian authors, Advent and Lenten curricula, and specific books of the Bible. Our members are active in all areas of the work of our church. We lead, participate in, and support local, community, and world-wide ministries. We love and support the staff of our church and respond willingly to member and community needs as they arise. The Joy Class meets on the ground floor of the Family Life Center (Room F101). Come join us as we commit to reflect the JOY of our salvation by grace.
New Beginnings is a lively group of singles and couples of all ages that believes each day is a new beginning! We are a Bible studying Sunday School Class led by Suzanne Krejcar. Suzanne is a talented teacher who is diligent in studying each week and creatively bringing God’s truth through His Word into our classroom and lives. Suzanne is gifted with the ability to show others how God has woven His plan throughout the old and new testament books of the Bible to bring His people life through Jesus. Suzanne always welcomes ideas and input from members of the class, and cleverly uses these thoughts to add to the meaning of the lesson. The members of the New Beginnings class enjoy one another’s company and lift each other up to Jesus in prayer in times of difficulty and in times of joy. We regularly support the Elmore County Food Pantry. We welcome new members with open arms! Our classroom is upstairs in the Family Life Center (Room F206) next to the Children’s Chapel. See you next Sunday!
PAIRS AND SPARES
Pairs and Spares is open to anyone from age 19 through 95! The class, which is taught by Lee Cash, strives to better understand the history and importance of the people of the Old and New Testaments in order to learn more about our Lord and His message. We use 30-minute DVD college lectures by professors from various college departments of religion. Some examples are: “Paul’s Teaching;” “Jesus in the Gospel of John;” “The Church in Luke and Acts;” “The Salvation of Gentiles in Galatians;” “The Book of Kings;” and “Great Figures of the New Testament.” If you enjoy studying in-depth the history of the Bible and the people in it, you are invited to join us upstairs in the Education Building (Room E201)!
