Fall 2023 Sunday School Classes
The following Sunday morning classes are open to all adults this fall.
Women's Book Discussion | The Gospel Comes with a House Key, by Rosario Butterfield
Stephanie Greene, SonRise Building 201/203
Join us as we discover the importance of Christian hospitality in a post-Christian world. We will share practical tips for making hospitality simple and easy. Our goal is to equip women for serving the church and their communities through the radically ordinary practice of hospitality.
Understanding the Biblical Doctrine of Christian Eschatology
Rev. Tim McKeown, SonRise Building 202
Eschatoloty is the part of theology that deals with the “End Times” that is concerned with death, our intermediate state after physical death, judgment, and the final destiny of the soul and of humankind. Our method of interpretation will follow the most accepted and commonly held interpretation within our ordained ministerial staff, RTS seminary professors, our PCA denomination, and other denominations of the Reformed theological faith. This is an excellent class to take before diving into the deeper waters of interpreting the book of Revelation and other biblical apocalyptic passages of Scripture!
Let’s Study Mark by Sinclair B. Ferguson
Rev. Bob Roane, SonRise Building 204
When John Mark wrote out his “good news” about Christ two thousand years ago, his Gospel was a completely new kind of book. No one had ever written one before. Mark teaches and reminds us that Jesus Christ is the unique Son of God, equal to the Father and the Holy Spirit in power, glory, and eternity. God has taken his infinite, eternal, and unchangeable being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth and translated them into Jesus so that we can understand, love, trust, and obey God as we were designed to do.
ESL Class: The Gospel of Mark
Axel Sotelo, SonRise Building Chapel
We will be studying the Gospel of Mark where Jesus the mighty Messiah and Son of God obediently suffers as the Servant of the Lord to pay the ransom price for sins, and as a model of suffering and sacrifice for his disciples to follow.
Estaremos estudiando el Evangelio de Marcos donde Jesús, el poderoso Mesías e Hijo de Dios, sufre obedientemente como el Siervo del Señor para pagar el precio del rescate por los pecados, y como un modelo de sufrimiento y sacrificio para que lo sigan sus discípulos.
Shorter Catechism Using Watson’s Body of Divinity
Travis Graham, Tommy Ikard, Cor Van Dyk, Main Building Room 211
Thomas Watson’s Body of Practical Divinity is one of the most precious of the peerless works of the Puritans; and those best acquainted with it prize it most. Watson was one of the most concise, racy, illustrative, and suggestive of those eminent divines who made the Puritan age the Augustan period of evangelical literature. (1) The book is divided into sections following the order of the catechism and extends to question 38, “What benefits do believers receive from Christ at the resurrection?” Each section begins with a statement of the subject being considered—e.g., “Christ the Mediator of the Covenant”—a proof text, biblical explanation, theological development, responses to critiques, and then uses. Uses are applications of the doctrine to the life of Christians. (2) (Reviews from 1. Goodreads and 2. BibleMesh)
Theology & Life | Rejoice in the Lord: Paul’s Letter to the Philippians
Dan Tidwell & Dave Garber, Main Building Room 212
From beginning to end, the Christian life is an invitation to experience the joy of the Lord. To know Jesus is to encounter joy in its purest form. The world can neither give joy nor take it away. Indeed, those who know Jesus can experience vibrant joy even on the darkest of days. This is certainly true of the Apostle Paul, who penned his most joyful letter from the drab environment of his jail cell. In this teaching series, Dr. Steven J. Lawson takes a detailed look at Philippians, Paul’s epistle of joy. Join Dr. Lawson on this journey and discover, verse by verse, how the joy of the Lord can transform your life.
The Transformation of Peter
Roger Wernette, Main Building Room 213
We will follow the Scriptures as they present the transformation of Peter from fisherman to apostle to teacher of fellow Christians. In the Gospels, the book of Acts, and I & II Peter, we can observe Peter as he grew in his faith. By applying his teaching and visualizing his experiences, we will seek to grow in our own faith. The class will not be so much a historical study as it will be a time for each participant to consider how God is directing their own personal transformation.
Young Adults Class | Let Us Rise Up and Build: Nehemiah
Marcelo Jakubovic, Main Building Room 214
Join us as we study Nehemiah’s testimony of hearing, and answering, God’s call to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Through many prayers, problems, pains and persistence, Nehemiah not only rebuilds the crumbled walls of Jerusalem but also restores the failing faith of God’s chosen people. Nehemiah was truly a man of God, filled with the Spirit, with a heart for his people. We will see much of Nehemiah that we can apply to our lives today. We will also see glimpses of Ezra and Malachi in this story of inspiration and faith.
