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.

DISAPPEARING CHURCH: FROM CULTURAL RELEVANCE TO GOSPEL RESILIENCE
Facilitators: Tom Grosh, Eric Mann
Room 108
Why does the Western church look so much like the world? Why are many of my friends leaving the faith? How can we get back to our roots? Disappearing Church by Mark Sayers will look at these questions by weaving helpful thoughts from history and theology with the thoughtful reminder that real growth happens when the church embraces its countercultural witness, not when it blends in.

UNSHAKABLE HOPE
Facilitators: Todd & Monica Hooper

We all experience storms in our life that impact things like our faith, family, or finances. Life is filled with problems, but God's Word is filled with promises and since His Word is unbreakable, our hope is unshakable!
