Sunday School

We have classes for adults and children of all ages. All encourage discovery, discussion and application of God’s principles through the study of his Word. Sunday School begins at 9am each week.
 

Children’s Classes

This fall, our young children will continue with a curriculum that helps them see the Bible as more than a collection of stories but as one big story about Jesus. It’s a narrative that continues from Genesis to Revelation, centered on God’s plan for redemption. Older children study how God’s plan is revealed in Scripture as well, with a particular focus on issues facing today’s young people.
 

Adult Classes

Our adult Sunday School program offers options that provide opportunities geared to different interests and learning styles. Fall options are:
  • “Living and Loving for God’s Glory – 1 Corinthians” with Tom Bischoff. This class will be utilizing “Maximum Impact” by Wayne Mack.
  • “Growing in Intimacy with God,” using “Essential Truths of the Christian Faith” by R.C. Sproul.
  • “The Pursuit of Holiness,” using “The Discipline of Grace” by Jerry Bridges.
Several books have been pre-purchased and are available from each teacher to start the semester. Participants are encouraged to buy their own copies. See the images and information below to ensure you are obtaining the correct book. We look forward to seeing you and learning together.
 

STEPPING STONES

East Glenville Community Church 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.
 
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.
