New Adult Sunday School Class: March 26, 2017

You are invited to join us on Sunday, March 26 at 9:00 a.m. when Rev. Lenzner will begin his new adult Sunday school class entitled:  Family Life.

Do you ever think that your home life and family relationships must be abnormal? Do you feel like a dysfunctional husband, wife, son, daughter or single person? It’s possible that these things may be true. But you might be surprised to discover that most of our family lives in this church are all in the same boat! We’re all struggling and fumbling through life and our family relationships in one way or another. Come join the Adult Sunday School class to receive a reminder that the power of the Gospel holds all of us together as Christian families and singles. In this Family Life series, Rev. Lenzner will lead us through an overview of what the Scriptures have to say about Christian home life and singleness. We’ll talk about marriage, parenting, sibling relationships, singleness, abuse, and more.

Adult Sunday School: January 8, 2017

Sunday, January 8, Rev. Chris Coleman will begin a new class entitled The Gospel in Ecclesiastes. What is the point of life? Why does it so often seem, in this life, that "good people" suffer and "bad people" prosper? Why does my life, sometimes, feel meaningless? These are some of the questions that the author of the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes asks and seeks to answer. Please join us at 9:00 AM in the Fellowship Hall as we seek to see the Gospel in Ecclesiastes. NOTE: in preparation for this class, please read through Ecclesiastes beforehand and come prepared with any questions you might have.
