NOTE: In the Fall of 2021, we permanently moved our Sunday Morning Sunday School classes to Wednesday night. We made this decision for many reasons, but the two primary reasons are: (1) It gives us more time to teach and (2) It provided a meaningful opportunity to reconnect with our church family in the middle of the week. We are thankful to the Lord that this has only served to intensify our discipleship efforts as a church.
We believe that every Christian is called and gifted to minister in some capacity (1 Cor 12). Our Mid-Week Discipleship classes meet on Wednesday nights, from 6:00-7:15 PM, and are our attempt to equip our children, teens and adults with the theological grounding, Biblical world-view, and practical skills they need to pursue God, love people, and multiply fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
CHILDREN — 3 1/2 yrs through 5th Grade:
Our two Mid-Week Discipleship classes, for 3 1/2 yrs-1st graders and 2nd-5th graders, will be continuing in their study of the Bible using the Answers Bible Curriculum. Our children will pick up where they left off last year, studying the life and teachings of Christ.
The Answers in Genesis (AIG) curriculum seeks to provide our children with a comprehensive view of the Bible while emphasizing that our children need to know they can trust the Word of God. By mixing in apologetics, AIG focuses on instilling an appreciation for the authority and trustworthiness of Scripture.
In addition to learning the Bible, we will be focusing on helping our children memorize various Bible verses.

JR & SR HIGH:
This fall I will continue leading our teens through the Gospel of John. I am really excited to continue to walk with the students through this book. John presents a unique portrait of Jesus and his ministry, and we will be attempting to plumb the depths of this Gospel in order to let it reveal who Jesus is and respond to him with our whole lives. Yet we will not only be attempting to unpack the glorious picture of Jesus Christ found in the Gospel, we will also be seeking to help the students grow in their ability to independently study and apply God’s Word to their lives. From those who are just beginning, to those who are much more advanced, I’m praying this study will meet them where they are and take them to the next level.
Students will be assigned a section to read and study each week before class. Points toward a reward will be given to those who complete their homework.
Please join me in praying that God will use this study to deepen our student’s understanding and appreciation for Jesus Christ, and to help them learn how to study God’s Word more effectively.
