Adult Sunday School

ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL

 

Our Adult Sunday School program offers three “tracks” that provide a variety of topics geared to different interests and learning styles.

Adult Sunday School is comprised of :

  • The Kingdom Living Class taught by Geoff Switts.

  • The Bible track, which will start in the Gospel of John will be taught by Adrian Perregaux to be followed by I Peter taught by Pastor Phil. Each class will be about 6 weeks in length.

  • The Pilgrim’s Progress taught by Tom Bischoff will continue through September.

Starting in October, we will be embarking on a track which is more Practical Theology. It is directed to all adults but especially those who are interested in serving on boards, committees, or teachers, etc. and is designed to be helpful for all those who will be serving in 2019. We will be going over the Vision and Win statements, Constitution and By-Laws, Personality traits and gifts as they pertain to ministry, and communication.

We are open to other ideas for Sunday School topics. A few that we are considering are: Hospitality, How to lead and participate in a Life Group, How to give away your faith, Know what you believe, Speaking to one another in love: Mt 5 and Mt18. Are there others that that would be helpful? Let us know your thoughts.

STEPPING STONES

EGCC is committed to be about “Loving God, Loving Other, and Helping Them Know and Follow Jesus.”  We are committed to help the adults of our church become all the Lord has made them to be and find their purposes in His world.  Our heart is to see “followers of Jesus” (what the Bible calls “disciples”) living their faith in all their week and growing in the knowledge and first-hand experience of being His person.

So with the Holy Spirit working in us, we are providing training in our Adult Sunday School to teach the skills and knowledge that helps an adult grow in these ways.  Some we have offered already, and more are planned ahead.

The image we are beginning to use for these “Stepping Stones” series of adult training.  Much more than mere information, they are a line of classes where by each one a follower of Jesus can “step” forward as they grow in Christ.  Here are the topics. Come walk with us.

Learning to Practice Spiritual Skills:

  • How to use my Bible

  • How to have a personal daily time with God

  • Finding my unique design for service and ministry

  • How to tell my spiritual story

  • How my personality and temperament fits with others

  • What are spiritual convictions (and what are my own non-negotiables)

  • How to manage my money from a Christian point of view

  • How to disagree with others and resolve conflict

  • How to hear God’s guidance and act upon what He asks

  • How to resist temptation and cooperate with God in my life

Learning Information that Leads to Decisions:

  • What is the Gospel

  • What is Baptism and Communion, Church and Membership
