Adult Bible CLASSES

Learning Together - Staying Connected

We encourage you to get connected with a Bible-teaching class.
It is far too easy to simply come to church and then slip out quickly.  We want to get to know you better, so join us!
Some are offered on Sundays, and other are offered during the week.  A couple of classes offer online Zoom connection options, if you don't want to attend in-person.

This class is offered both in-person and via Zoom.
In the Book of Acts, Luke documents the establishment of the church in Jerusalem and the implementation of Jesus' Great Commission to take the Gospel to the entire world through many exciting stories.  This class will be a deep-dive into the stories that Acts contains, and will continue for months into the new year. Taught by Larry Powell.

The Color of Compromise: The Truth about the American Church's Complicity in Racism

The Color of Compromise, by Jemar Tisby, is an acclaimed, timely study of how people of faith have historically—up to the present day—worked against racial justice. It extends a call for urgent action by all Christians today in response.

The Color of Compromise is both enlightening and compelling, telling a history we either ignore or just don't know. Equal parts painful and inspirational, it details how the American church has helped create and maintain racist ideas and practices. You will be guided in thinking through concrete solutions for improved race relations and a racially inclusive church. Facilitated by Colin & Nicole Boyle and Chris & DeAnne Willis

SUNDAYS,  starting Sept. 12 and ending Nov. 21

Psalms of Ascent - Songs for the Journey

Join us in a new study of the Psalms of Ascent. This section of the Bible—Psalm 120-134—is a special group of songs sung by Jewish pilgrims and priests as they approached the Temple. The city of Jerusalem is situated on a high hill, and Jews traveling to Jerusalem for one of the three main annual Jewish festivals traditionally sang these songs on the "ascent" or the uphill road to the city.  In these songs, you'll discover hope, worship, peace, blessing, and unity—all things we desperately need in our lives today. We look forward to this pilgrim journey together. Taught by Care Pastor Bill Lawrence.
