Sunday Bible Studies
Adult Virtual Sunday School Lesson
NEW FOR ADULTS IN ONLINE SUNDAY SCHOOL
We started a new series which is taught by Wayne Ham and will last 8 weeks. It’s entitled “A Survey of the Bible and Christianity.”Part I will include a look at the history of the Bible, how it came to be in the form we have today and who wrote it. This will be followed by an overview of the Old Testament, tying each book to the next in the light of God’s covenant relationship with mankind. Included will be film clips at locations in the Holy Land where the events recorded in the Bible actually happened. An outline of the course, which has room for study notes, may be downloaded below or hard copies are available in the church office. At the end of the course an “exam” may be downloaded for you to “grade” yourself if you like. Part 2 will follow with a similar course on the New Testament and church beginnings. The lesson aims are to help us have a bird’s-eye look of the Bible as a whole, tied together with one purpose: Reconciliation/Salvation.
Sunday Bible Study is not only an opportunity to study the Bible together, but it is an entry point for meeting new friends and interacting with a smaller group of people. Sunday Bible Study provides fellowship opportunities, a caring network for those in the group and a framework for ministry opportunities. Our Sunday Morning Bible Study classes meet from 9:45-10:45am.
Preschoolers, Children and Youth
Bible Study is age-graded, particularly through Grade 12. Bed Babies, Creepers, Explorers and Toddlers are promoted developmentally so they may be moved up any time during the year if the Preschool Coordinator feels they are ready for the next class. For everyone else Promotion Day is generally the last Sunday in August. In accord with the fact that children enter school based on the age they are on August 31, Preschoolers 2-K are assigned to class based on the age they are on August 31. Grades 1-12 go by school grade.
Adults are age-graded but we do not adhere to strict guidelines. Age groups given for classes are guidelines to help newcomers have some idea of the folks who are in the group and who will be at the same stage in life and have similar likes and needs. Most classes are coed. Age-graded classes generally use the Connections and Formations Lesson Series from Smyth and Helwys.
