Beginning on Sunday, September 12 we are offering two Adult Sunday Classes, one during each Worship Service. Both classes meet downstairs in the Fellowship Hall.
9 A.M. CLASS
Topic – Prophets: Amos * Hosea * Micah
Teachers – Creighton Anderson, Sam Arthur, Jim Blosser, Pastor Matthew McNutt, Craig Montgomery and Pastor Todd Johnson.
Description – For the prophets, any sort of covenant relationship with God must necessarily be expressed not only in religious terms but in social and political terms as well. Their messages were often social critiques, yet they always made it clear that they were expressly representing God’s heart and purposes for their nation and humanity in general. This position enabled them not only to deliver condemnation for corporate sin but also to convey God’s promises of blessing and restoration following repentance. Several thousand years later, the messages of Amos, Hosea, and Micah are as relevant now as they were then.
10:30 A.M. CLASS
Topic – Bearing God’s Name: Why Sinai Still Matters
Teacher – Don Kugelberg
Description – Based on the book Bearing God’s Name: Why Sinai Still Matters by Carmen Joy Imes, the class will explore what it means to belong to God, a topic we rarely consider. Imes sums it up well: “For Moses, Yahweh’s personal presence with them was non-negotiable. Without him, they were nothing. Everything they were was because of who he was. The same is true of you and me. What matters most about us is to whom we belong.”
Videos from Prophets and Bearing God’s Name are available for viewing on our Vimeo channel. Due to technical difficulties, no videos are available for September 12.
