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
Learning to Love the Psalms
The Book of Psalms is one of the greatest treasures the Lord has given to His people. Through these sacred poems, God has given us a rich songbook and a divinely inspired guide for our prayers. In this teaching series, Dr. W. Robert Godfrey provides an overview of the Psalms with the specific goal of learning to love them through a study of their themes, structure, and beauty. This is a video class followed by class discussion.

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.

The women's SS class will be studying out of a book by Jen Wilkin called NONE LIKE HIM. From the back cover: God is self-existent, self-sufficient, eternal, immutable, omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, sovereign, infinite and incomprehensible. We are not. In an upside-down world that has humanized God and deified man, we will be called to lift our eyes upward, to earnestly contemplate God's attributes and to humbly acknowledge our own limits.
Purchase of book is optional. Various teachers or Team taught.

The Attributes of God
Many of you will know the name 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 it 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.
