Adult Sunday School
Adult Sunday School is a more informal time when adults can gather and study a variety of topics, whether it be a book of Scripture or ways to apply the Bible to all of life. Some classes meet during first hour, others during second hour.
First Hour Classes
The Attributes of God
Many of you will know the name of A.W. Tozer, a prominent evangelical from the last century. In his book titled, The Knowledge of the Holy, he made the comment that, "what a person conceives God to be like in his heart is the most important thing about him." He was absolutely right! For what we truly conceive God to be like is the ultimate driving force in our lives. That being the case, it is absolutely essential that we have correct views about God. In this Sunday school class called Behold Your God, we will examine the nature, attributes and character of God, as He Himself has revealed in Holy Scripture. The Puritans of the 16th century often referred to God as "the best of all beings." The goal of this class will be to help you know Him in truth and to have the same opinion of Him.

Ruth and Esther
Does God help those who help themselves? That may seem to be the message of Esther and Ruth, yet a closer reading shows a gracious and sovereign God at work, one who uses obviously flawed people - unable even to help themselves - to rescue his people and prepare for the coming of Christ.

The women's SS class will finish the book by Jen Wilkin called NONE LIKE HIM.
On January 7, the class will begin to study Lauren Chandler's book on Psalm 107, STEADFAST LOVE. "The beauty of Psalm 107 is that it speaks to seasons of our lives in which we have all found ourselves. It is an invitation to self-examination balanced by God-exaltation. Come join us as we hear the good news that no matter the season, no matter if we're hungry and thirsty, heavy-hearted, entangled in sin, or weathering a storm, God is the Lord of steadfast love, the anchor of our souls."

Second Hour Classes
Paul wrote to the church in Colossae to fortify it against false teachers who might try to impose strict rules about eating and drinking and religious festivals. Paul shows the superiority of Christ over all human philosophies and traditions, identifying with Him, and walking in Him. He explains that living in this world, for the believer, is to focus on heavenly rather than earthly things.
