Son Seekers

Multipurpose Room

Class Overview: The Son Seekers Adult Bible Fellowship, taught by Pastor Brian McCall and Pastor Steve Park, is made up of a group of individuals, studying topics relevant to today, in an effort to follow after Jesus Christ. We strive to study the word of God and, through His Holy Spirit, make application to our lives to live for Christ within our culture and circumstances. The format of the class is generally interactive in nature. The make-up of the class is not age specific. While some of the participants have younger and teenage children, many are “empty nesters”. This broad range of life experiences makes the Son Seekers appealing to a wide array of ages.

This Quarter: Journey in Genesis. This quarter we will explore the first 11 chapters of the book of Genesis. We will discuss practical application of God’s creation, Adam and Eve, the intrusion of sin, the wickedness of humanity resulting in the flood and the Table of Nations. The Bible takes on new meaning when studied through the purpose and mission of Jesus Christ. Join us as we learn more about the heart of God through the first 11 chapters of Genesis.


Lamplighter

Basement Room 001

Class Overview: This class is taught by Pastor, Brant Leidy Tom Schneider and Floyd Deterline. This class of parents with teens meets to discuss contemporary issues from a Biblical Perspective as they wrestle with the demands of teenage parenting.

This Quarter: Beginning in March for five weeks, Tom Schneider will be teaching the class. Join us as we discuss various topics of interest. In April and May, Pastor Brant will be leading in a study on the book of Ecclesiastes. We will use the brand-new book, “Fear God and Keep His Commandments” written by two professors at Grace College and Seminary. One is a theologian and one is a counselor so they write their insights with these perspectives in mind. We will look at the theology of Ecclesiastes and draw out many practical insights. There will be opportunity for discussion. The book of Ecclesiastes is a difficult book in Scripture but it provides great insight into our human condition and our purpose in life.


Ambassadors

They enjoy spending time together in class as well as outside the class at regularly scheduled social events.

This Quarter: Could the headlines be any more jarring, the cultural changes more rapid, or the moral decay more pronounced? More and more people are asking, “Is This The End?”

Come and join us as Dr. David Jeremiah will be looking at current areas of concern to us all, such as; The Age of Anything Goes; The Bleeding of Our Borders; The Increase of Intolerance; The Apathy of America; The Isolation of Israel; The Insurgency of ISIS; The Resurrection of Russia; The Rapture of the Redeemed and Translated Before the Tribulation.

Berachah

Room 101

Class Overview: Danny Horton, Director of Congregational Care, teaches this class. These folks join together to share and support each other with their many years of life experience and wisdom from a Biblical perspective. Most have achieved retirement with adult age grandchildren.

For the spring quarter, the Berachah class will begin a study of the topic of “heaven." Although we all know that there is a heaven waiting for us when we die, but how much do we really know about what happens there? If you’re like most people, you don’t think much about heaven on a day-to-day basis. Based on Chip Ingram’s series, “The Real Heaven,” we will look at common misconceptions about heaven and what the Bible really says about these things.
