Adult Sunday School

The Adult Sunday School class, led by Pastor Rayburn, concerns the subject of Pastor Rayburn’s new book, The Truth in Both Extremes: Paradox in Biblical Revelation. Every reader of the Bible has encountered this phenomenon, whether or not he or she has thought about what it means, why it exists, or what is to be done when we encounter it. The Bible says one thing here, that seems to be virtually the contradiction of something it says there. We are delivered from the power of sin in one place and remain bondslaves to it in another. Once a Christian always a Christian in one place, in another Christians who started well did not finish. In fact, virtually everything the Bible teaches is taught in this way of polarity, of apparent contradiction, of paradox. Coming to terms with this phenomenon is the challenge the Bible faces us with on virtually every page. But it is also the way in which the truth must be taught, given the limitations of our intellect, and given our penchant for preferring some biblical teachings to others.

“Women of Faith” Class, Room 105 or North DeSoto Hall

Sunday School – Room 105, 9:45-10:45am

Ladies, currently our Sunday School class is reading through The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, by CS Lewis. You might say to yourself, that’s a children’s book, why would we read that? Or, I already read that in junior high, or high school, or to my kids. Been there, done that! But did you ever think that the chronicles might contain a deeper meaning than just a fascinating children’s story? Have you ever wondered why the Beavers and the children meet Father Christmas in Narnia? Or, why are there seven books in the series and not 6, or 8, or 10?
Michael Ward in The Narnia Code says, “As I got older and began to read his other writings, I became ever more intrigued by the seemingly random aspects to the Chronicles. They were not what you would expect of a man like Lewis with a highly trained mind.”
Bring your book if you have one and join us Sunday mornings at 9:45 as we read through the first book in The Chronicles of Narnia and discuss its deeper meaning.

NOTE: Occasionally, we enjoy the opportunity to meet together in the north side of DeSoto Hall and share new insights and prayer concerns, as well as give you any updates in Women’s Ministry. These dates will be announced in the bulletin!

Senior High Sunday School

For many of us, we’ve heard the gospel all our lives. We can tell you all about it and can explain it, but the disconnect comes when we apply it to our lives. Come study the book of Galatians with us as we see why the gospel message was so controversial, and begin to understand how it transforms our outlook on our day-to-day lives. High schoolers (9th-12th grade) are encouraged to join Pastor Gutiérrez and Mr. & Mrs. Funches Sundays 10:00-10:45am, in Room 304.
