Adult Sunday School
Sermon on the Mount – Sanctuary
Dr. Jeff David is teaching a class on the Sermon on the Mount. In his introduction to his exposition on the Sermon on the Mount, John Stott wrote, “The Sermon on the Mount is probably the best-known part of the teaching of Jesus, though arguably it is the least understood, and certainly it is the least obeyed. It is the nearest thing to a manifesto that he ever uttered, for it is his own description of what he wanted his follower to be and to do. To my mind no two words sum up its intention better or indicate more clearly its challenge to the modern world, than the expression ‘Christian counterculture.’” Come and see why this is the case. The adult class meets in the sanctuary
“Women of Faith” Class, Room 105 or North DeSoto Hall
Sunday School – Room 105, 9:45-10:45am
Please join us for a time of grace-filled discussion and fellowship during the Sunday School hour for a book study on Confronting Injustice Without Compromising Truth, written by Dr. Thaddeus Williams.
Thaddeus Williams is an Assistant Professor of Theology at Biola University in La Mirada, CA. His book, Confronting Injustice Without Compromising Truth, is a compelling collection of stories and insights instructing us to think about the topic of social justice from a Biblical worldview.
Here is a link to an introductory video to the book.
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!
Sr High Sunday School – Room 304
Christians are often accused of being unreasonable and intolerant by unbelievers, who argue that Biblical perspectives are hateful if the Biblical perspectives disagree with their own secular views. This can make conversations about God and life very difficult, and these secular perspectives can even begin to seep into our thinking and make us question our own Christian worldview. In this Sunday school we will be using Tim Keller’s book, The Reason for God, and we will analyze worldly ways of thinking while seeking to gain a better understanding of why we believe what we believe. High schoolers (9-12th grade) are encouraged to join us with Pastor Gutiérrez Sundays, 9:45-10:45am, in Room 304.
Caleb Gutiérrez will be filling in on November 28 for Pastor Gutiérrez who is on vacation.
Children’s Sunday School
Preparations are underway for this year’s Sunday School Christmas Program during our evening service December 19th. As is our tradition, we will have a musical prelude to start the program. We have so many talented kids who all work so hard, and we love to see and hear them play their various instruments in celebration of our Savior’s Birth! If you have a Sunday Schooler who would like to perform a piece for this year’s prelude, please email Heidi Bone with the title, length, and instrument of the song your student will be performing. Thanks!
