Sunday Morning Classes

All Sunday school classes meet from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. weekly.

 

Contemporary Issues

Topics for this class are chosen each week from the news of the day from news service providers and the Wired Word.  The class leader brings a current events topic that is discussed in the context of related Bible verses.  Each week stands alone, allowing class members to drop in on any Sunday and be current and up to speed with everyone else.

The class leader sends out, via email, background on the topic of the week with web links to resources for each class member to do more background checking if they have time to do so.   Give Chip Black your email address to be added to the distribution list for weekly updates.

Since we all have had different paths to our faith, the discussion is lively and an easy way to get to know the other members of the class on a more personal level.

This class is open to anyone willing to listen to another view and express their opinions on the topics of the day.

Class meets in room 108.

Class Leader:  Chip Black.

The Present Word

This Bible study class is currently studying History of Christianity, an overview of the 2,000-year history of the Christian church written by Dr. Timothy George, an Historian and Dean of Samford University’s Beeson Divinity School.  He has written numerous articles and books and serves as senior editor of Christianity Today.

This class is open to all adults that desire to study the Bible.

Class meets in room 107.

Class Leader:  Tom Denny

Soul Sisters

This class enjoys fellowship and Bible study, utilizing  the book What Paul Meant by Garry Wills. All through history, Christians have debated Paul’s influence on the church.  Though revered, Paul has also been a stone on which many stumble. Author Garry Wills argues that what Paul meant was not something contrary to what Jesus meant.  Rather,the best way to know Jesus is to discover Paul. Paul wrote in the heat of the moment, managing controversy, and sometimes contradicting himself, but at the same time offering the best reflection of those early times.  Come discover Paul with the Soul Sisters each Sunday morning at 9:45 this summer.  Class members take turns leading the week’s lesson.

This class is open to all women who desire to study the Bible and fellowship with your fellow Soul Sisters.

Class meets in room 109.
