Adult classes are back!
We now have 3 adult classes meeting on Sunday mornings at 9 am:
- Four Square Blessings Class is taught by John Russell and uses the Standard Lesson materials. Large print is available on request. This class meets in the Chapel (across from the office), and consists of older adults.
- The Good News Class, taught by Tim Bush, meets in the choir room, which is at the back of the Social Hall in the basement beneath the Worship Center. (Location is subject to change). Tim encourages plenty of discussion. This class has half dozen or so stalwarts, and is eager for growth.
- The Challengers Class is taught by Dave Bush. They have a wide variety of ages, with little to years of biblical knowledge, studying God’s word together. Dave does a great job of mingling all ages together to teach Gods word at a level all can understand. He also uses videos and slides on the wall as teaching aids. This class meets in the Youth Room (take elevator all the way upstairs, almost immediately on the left down the hall). If you’re looking for a class that will challenge and teach you about God’s word we would love for you to join us.
Our big need right now is a class for young and young-ish adults (post high school, 20’s, 30’s, 40’s . . .) There is a teacher lined up, and we are working out logistics. Details to follow. In the meantime, PLEASE sit in on another class!
We have a nursery available which is across from the office. If, when you arrive, there is no one there, please see Lisa George, who has a contingent of nursery workers to staff the nursery on an as-needed basis.
We also have classes for those over 24 months but not yet in kindergarten; kindergarten through 5th grade; and middle school/high school. Check-in for these is in the education wing. As attendance grows, these will be split into smaller age ranges.
Planning is underway for a pair of classes on membership. There will be a members’ refresher course for all current members, plus a more in-depth, discussion-type class for newer members, those considering membership, and those who would just be interested in the in-depth discussions.
The refresher course will be 4 or 5 weeks, and will be offered twice within the next couple of months or so. Tentative topics are the 4 G’s, membership expectations, and doctrine of the Christian Churches/Churches of Christ.
The new members’ class will probably be offered once within this period of time, and will tentatively be 8 weeks. Specific topics are still to be determined.
Everyone will be strongly encouraged to attend one or the other of these classes. The current plan is for these to lead up to a revival weekend, at which time we will have a members’ recommitment.
The upcoming months look to be an exciting time for Minerva First Christian!
