  • spring sunday school

    begins sunday, March 10 at 9:00 a.m.

    JESUS, THE SUFFERING SERVANT

    with Chris Lamperski

    Come hear about Christ our Redeemer and Liberator as foretold by Isaiah. We will trace references to Jesus in Isaiah beginning with the prophecy of His virgin birth. We will read glorious truths like:  "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light." We will meditate on God's love for us, on Jesus, God's righteous Servant, who suffered, bore our sins, and by whose stripes we are healed. We will hear the good tidings about Jesus who binds up the broken-hearted, proclaims liberty to the captives, and comforts all that mourn. This will be a close reading of Old and New Testament passages. 


    GOSPEL ON THE GO

    with Gary Laird

    Why doesn't Mark begin with the birth of Jesus but instead jumps straight to his encounter with John the Baptist at the Jordan River? Why is the word immediately used 39 times in the book? Why does it seem like Mark just wants to get to the end of the Jesus story? Join us for a journey through the fast-paced gospel of Mark as we seek to find answers to these questions and more.  This class will be highly interactive as we join together each week to dig into God's Word for further understanding; while also taking time to reflect on how it applies to our lives.  As we study Mark, we will also be learning Bible reading strategies that can be used for doing personal study with any book of the Bible.


    REAL LIVE-ACTION PRAYER

    with Dan Hendley

    This will be genuine, “in-the-field” experience talking to God together, led by the Holy Spirit with some help from Dan Hendley who will teach a little before we pray a bunch.


    CROSS REFLECTIONS

    with Ben Burkholder

    How does Christ's death on the cross save us?  Was it necessary for him to rise from the grave?  Does his earthly life matter for our salvation?  In this class, we are going to be doing three primary things.  First, we'll investigate the key biblical passages that inform how we think about Christ's saving work.  Second, we'll learn from former generations of Christians and how they understood Christ's saving work.  Third, since the Reformed (i.e. Luther and Calvin) understanding of salvation has come under criticism in recent decades, we'll offer some defense and response as to why we can credibly believe that Christ dies for our sins.
