Sunday School

Below is a brief description of our Sunday School classes for our adults. All are welcoming of new members. Feel free to join a class for a Sunday or a season. Find the class that fills you spiritually and challenges you to live out your faith outside of the church walls. If you have any questions or want more information about our class offerings please contact our Director of Christian Education, Russ Pearson, at the church.

Fellowship Bible Class
Room 102
The Discovery & The Fellowship Bible classes, which were combined in 2019.  This class has a long history of learning the Bible together and lifting up each other in prayer.
The Fellowship Bible Class is starting a new 12-week study this Sunday, April 24, 2022, on the Book of Isaiah.  The study is written by Dr. Sandra Richter and includes a video and discussion each week. Richter says in her introduction:

“Isaiah is often called ‘the fifth gospel’ and has more to say about Israel’s coming Messiah than any other OT book. Like in the Epistles of the NT, God’s people today have trouble hearing what Isaiah is saying. One reason is that we only have half of the conversation. A primary objective of this study is to provide the other half of that conversation. We will also seek to organize the 66 chapters of sermons and narratives that Isaiah spoke long ago. From the mouth of this great prophet to our ears, we will seek to understand and apply his great message in our lives today.”

Come join us (in the first room past the elevator, heading toward Chapel) at 9:45 this Sunday, April 24. You’re welcome for any of the sessions.

Friends in Faith
Rooms 103-104
The Friends in Faith class is for those interested in building a closer relationship to God in community with each other. Typically, they use the curriculum from the PCUSA called “Being Reformed”. These are 6-8 week series based around a particular topic. In between studies the class discusses articles from the “Presbyterian’s Today” magazine.

Breakfast Club and SALT Classes Meet Together
Room 207 – Upstairs from the Sanctuary. Make a left at the elevator and it the class is the first on the right.
In the words of Donald Miller, “When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.” We are a group that is admittedly, unabashedly flawed. We enjoy getting together for open and relaxed discussions about balancing our hectic lives with our spiritual needs. With travel and other commitments, no one has perfect attendance, but we look forward to gathering each week and discussing ways to keep God at the center of our lives and families. We are mostly couples with younger children, but anyone is more than welcome to join us. This season we will continue to have sermon discussions led by some of our members and pastors.

This class talks about current issues and how they relate to the Bible, different theology topics, and occasionally uses the lectionary for their Bible discussion.

SALT (Sharing and Learning Together)
Room 202 Upstairs from the Sanctuary. Make a left at the elevator and the class is the second on the right.
We are a small group of parents with young children and young adults who are committed to participating in intellectual group dialog and bible study. We enjoy learning about the bible and how it applies to tough, current issues and our lives today in a practical way. We are also open to, accepting of and enjoy learning about each other’s varied viewpoints. We strive to find ways to love and lift up the community around us through study and action. We devote time to connecting with each other in a meaningful way and are supportive of each other as we work through being parents, Christians, and just people in today’s world.

New Horizons
Room 207 Upstairs. Make a left at the elevator and go to the end of the hall and go right to the end of the hall and 207 is last room on the right.
This class is the evolution of our First Ladies Class. Their intent is to explore Christ’s message and how it applies to our daily life and present-day world.
