Adult classes meet for one hour Sunday mornings, September through June. Many of our classes hold out-of-class functions during the year as well. All of our classes meet downstairs in the Fellowship Hall or in the rooms surrounding the Fellowship Hall. You can join a class at any time, no need to wait for a new topic to start. During the summer we offer one class for all adults, the Summer Series. Below are the classes and topics for fall 2019. We hope you will join us!
Why check out an Adult Class? In our classes, you will experience a creative, spiritually vital environment that offers instruction, welcomes questions, encourages application, and provides the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships. Feel free to attend a class based on a subject of interest to you. Our classes are designed to assist you in both your personal and spiritual development. Please call (302) 478-4255 if you have any questions or if we can assist you.
Description: The Faith Class focuses on inductive Bible study in a teacher-led discussion format and includes sharing and group prayer. Out-of-class functions consist of a quarterly women’s prayer breakfast, a bi-monthly potluck dinner and an evening of fellowship in a home. The class is open to all.
Topic: Just Do It: A 12-week study of the Gospel of Matthew (chapters 1-12)
If you have a “red-letter” Bible, you will observe that most of the Gospel of Matthew is red. More than any of the other gospel writers, Matthew concentrates on recording Jesus’ actual words. In a day when rappers and NBA stars wear WWJD (what would Jesus do) bracelets, it’s time to find out what Jesus said to do. Note: While it is best to start this course at the beginning, the class is always open to drop-ins.

QUEST FOR CHRISTIANITY CLASS
Description: The Quest class is designed for people trying to make sense of life. Questions are encouraged. We want to show that the Bible is relevant today. Non-believers and mature believers of all ages are welcome.
Topic: Life of Elijah
Of all the prophets, the New Testament mentions Elijah more than any other. He is the prophet who appeared with Moses at the transfiguration of our Lord. He is a man who appears from out of nowhere, lives a life filled with miracles and whose exit from this life is even more fantastic. Yet Scripture tells us he was a man just like us, a man with whom we can identify.
Time: 10:30 a.m. Leader: Don Kugelberg Location: Fellowship Hall
Description: The Fellowship class offers in-depth study of Bible topics, doctrine and theology.
Topic: Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament, Kings, Judges and Prophets
The entire Old Testament points toward Jesus as Savior, and if we miss that, we’ve missed the entire point of the Scriptures. Jesus is the Messiah and the fulfillment of prophecy.
