Core & Equipping Classes

Fall Semester

adult classes

Bethel’s adult education hour helps us to understand biblical truths and the theology, ministry, and history God has authored. Meeting each Sunday from 9:30 – 10:30 am, our ADULT CLASSES offer various levels of study on the books of the Bible, theology, and biblical application in various areas of life. 

Equipping Classes

COMMUNITY GROUP LEADERSHIP TRAININGgrow

WHEN & WHERE: Sundays at 9:30 am in Room 202
TEACHER: Don Currans and Clay Miles  
DESCRIPTION: Bethel Church has determined that the ideal approach to make disciples is through our community groups. They are critical to building a biblical community that goes beyond superficial relationships to include meeting each other’s practical needs and exhorting each other to become all that God has called us to be. We are happy to present this class as a means to equip members with the skills needed for community group leaders, small group leaders, and future adult teachers. Attendees will gain practical skills that will last a lifetime of ministry regardless of the group context. This class is for all men and women of Bethel Church, including Elders, Community Group hosts, leaders and apprentices, Deacons, and others desiring to grow in ministry leadership skills.

THE BEGINNING OF THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST: ACTSgrow

WHEN & WHERE: Sundays at 9:30 am in Room 203
TEACHER: Frank Jones 
DESCRIPTION: A study of Acts, starting from Peter’s Pentecost sermon in Acts 2:22. 

THE SPIRITUAL LIFE – PART 1 AND 2 grow

WHEN & WHERE: Sundays at 9:30 am in Room 210
TEACHER: Matt Summers
DESCRIPTION: What is the spiritual life? This class will look at the spiritual components of our lives – sin and flesh; walking/filling/leading/grieving of the Holy Spirit; legalism; and positional and practical holy living.  We will also look at each tense of salvation (past, present, and future); Romans 6; and provide a trajectory for what it means to live a life “in Christ”.  Part 2 focuses on discipleship.

SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY grow

WHEN & WHERE: Sundays at 9:30 am in Room 211
TEACHER: Jay Campbell 
DESCRIPTION: Why did God create us? Why did He create us male and female?  How did God make us like Himself?  What is sin and where did it come from? How is Jesus fully God and fully man? Was it really necessary for Christ to die?  What really happened in the atonement?  If you have pondered these questions and others like them, then “systematic theology” is certainly a meaningful and important area of study for you.  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, and more.
