Adult Sunday School Classes

Session 2

Our second Sunday School session for 2018 - 2019 will run for six weeks beginning October 28, 2018 from 9:30 to 10:30 am. The following are the adult classes planned for the first term.  

Keep It Shut

Facilitator:  Sylvia Maguire

Description:  Karen Ehman addresses women and words with a kind, encouraging, and sometimes funny delivery. She explores what the Bible says about when to speak, when to remain silent, what to say in social media posts, why "just sharing a prayer request" might be gossip, and why self-talk matters too. Using words well leads to healthier relationships and the joy of seeing what God can do when he's the one who speaks.

 

Homework:  1 to 2 hours per week.

Book Needed:  "Keep It Shut" Workbook

How the local church goes global.

Facilitator:  Gordon Ferno


Every local church should be engaged with global missions, even if most individuals in the church aren't called to go overseas. But what does this engagement actually look like? How can local churches train, send, and support missionaries well? Unpacking principles from the Bible and applying them in the context of real life in a local church, this new book in the 9Marks: Building Healthy Churches series is filled with practical steps and advice for supporting missionaries, forming international partnerships, sending short-term teams, and engaging with the nations here at home. This book casts a vision for the local church as the engine of world missions―for the joy of all people and the glory of God.
