Adult Sunday Morning Electives

Our Sunday morning schedule includes elective classes for adults that are held between the worship services, from 10:10-10:50. Through our electives, we attempt to offer a variety of classes encompassing the study of Scripture, church history, and theology. We also try to engage our culture and put ministry into action to better equip us to love God, share Christ, and serve the world.

THE LIFE & TIME OF MOSES
Facilitator | Daniel Munyan
ROOM 105
This lecture-based class will examine the life of the great lawgiver Moses as recorded in scripture. We will add the context of archaeology, history, linguistics, and sociology to flesh out Moses as an Egyptian and Hebrew, husband, father, general, prince, shepherd, national deliverer, and prophet. We will also explore Moses' relationship with God, who spoke with him as scripture records, "face to face" (Exodus 33:11). John J. Davis's book, Moses and the Gods of Egypt (second edition), will be used as a text for the class.

PARENTING ADOLESCENTS

Parents of adolescent children (ages 12-22) will benefit most from this class.

Please contact Melita at melita@etownbic.org if you are willing to share during the class.

THEOLOGY OF SUFFERING
Facilitator | Ling Dinse
ROOM 117
No one appreciates suffering and yet suffering is all through scripture. It causes us to ask, Why did God permit this? or Does God care about me? This class will explore our presuppositions about suffering, discuss theological aspects of suffering, and help us understand how to minister compassionately.
