Equipping Classes (Spring)


growWHEN & WHERE: Sundays at 9:30 am in Room 203 (14 weeks, Apr 30 - Aug 27)
TEACHER: Frank Jones
Paul’s extremely personal and tender short epistle is full of wonderfully practical and really famous passages. Paul was in prison as he wrote, his life not going well at all, but his trust in God absolutely glows throughout the letter. He openly confessed his deep love for the saints in Philippi. A good summary of this book is found in a brief statement in chapter one: the Good News Translation renders it this way - FOR WHAT IS LIFE? TO ME, IT IS CHRIST.


WHEN & WHERE: Sundays, 9:30 am in Room 204 (14 weeks, Apr 30-Jul 30)
TEACHER: Sammy Palacios, Adult Ministries Intern 
This course will offer a way of looking at Acts and Paul’s writings that is very easy to understand! From a bird’s eye perspective, we will offer a synthetic overview of not only the Book of Acts, but also all of Paul’s epistles (Romans to 2 Thessalonians; 1 & 2 Timothy, Titus, and Philemon). This is a great study for those who are new to the faith or those who are eager to grasp the overall message and themes of these books of the Bible.


WHEN & WHERE: Sundays at 9:30 am in Room 208 (14 weeks, Apr 30 – Aug 27)
TEACHERS: Dr. Dwain Camp (Elder)
How do we know the Bible is reliable? What is sin and where did it come from? How is Jesus fully God and fully man? What are spiritual gifts?  When and how will Christ return? If you have pondered these questions and others like them, then “systematic theology” is certainly a meaningful and important area of study for you.  In this first of the three semesters, we will examine the Scriptures to see what the Bible has to say about a wide array of critical topics: Sin, Salvation, God, The Holy Spirit, Sanctification, Creation, Humanity, Angels, etc. We will use Wayne Grudem’s Bible Doctrine to assist us. We will cover a chapter each week.  Prepare for class each week by reading the lesson and come ready to discuss the teachings of God’s eternal word.


WHEN & WHERE: Sundays at 9:30 am in Room 210 (Jun 18 - Jul 30)
TEACHERS: John Brickner
This course deals with nuts of bolts of marital conflict, communication, love, and respect. We will not only learn how to better communicate, resolve conflict, and be more consistent at promoting unity, but we will also discover how your home can be a haven of ministry, live for what matters most, and leave a rich legacy.


growWHEN & WHERE: Sundays at 9:30 am in Room 210 (Aug 6-27)
TEACHER: Dr. Paul R. Shockley (Adult Pastor)
This course will offer a specific study into the First and Second Greatest Commandments, namely, to love God from out of one’s heart, soul, mind, and strength, and love one’s neighbor as oneself as recorded in Mark 12:28-34
