Adult Sunday School Classes

Grace Covenant Adult Classes: Fall 2019 Session 1

August 25th-October 20th    ~    9:30-10:30 am Sundays

 

College Class: Ecclesiastes: Beyond the Sun

Teachers: Bill Reynolds, Kyle Strom, and Heath McLaughen

Life “under the sun” is how the author of Ecclesiastes describes living only for this world and the vanity of it all, but the author also knows there is more to life than what is “under the sun.” So, how do we live life “under the sun” with a vision of life beyond the sun?  How do we live for God while here in this world? Come and learn from Ecclesiastes. Breakfast served every Sunday morning. While geared for students of VT, RU, and NRCC, we love to have a few older adults attend the class as well. See Heath if interested.


Bible Class: Jeremiah: God’s Justice and Grace

Teachers: Taylor Rollo

Jeremiah had a tough job. He brought the message of God’s righteous justice and judgment against sin to the Southern Kingdom of Judah but not without reminding them of God’s covenant faithfulness. In our survey of Jeremiah, which will cover Fall sessions one and two, we will look at key themes and bring out applications for us and our community from this prophetic book, all while seeing how it points us to Jesus Himself as the true hope for God’s people. This is a great class for visitors to attend!

 

Christian Life Class: Happy Christian: Fighting for Joy in a Gloomy World

Teachers: Sam Kimzey and Elders

Hopelessness has invaded much of our culture, but while the world is awash in negativity, God’s Word gives Christians the resources to live differently. This class will look at some of those resources and how we can fight for joy in Christ, using a book called The Happy Christian by David Murray. Dr. Murray does not shy away from suffering in this book at all (he’s also the author of Christians Get Depressed Too), but he shows how God's grace in Christ can overcome it, allowing us to live lives that are generally joyful and looking forward to the time when there will be no more tears at all (Rv. 21). Reading the book is recommended for those who attend, and books will be available on the table for $10.
