Adult Sunday School Classes

Grace Covenant Adult Classes: Spring 2019 Session

March 24th-May 12th    ~    9:30-10:30 am Sundays

 

College Class: Biblical Ethics (continued)

Teachers: Bill Reynolds, Kyle Strom, and Andy Wood

This Spring the College class will continue its study the 10 Commandments, trying to understand what each one both forbids and requires. We will look at how the Commandments form the framework of Biblical Ethics and how the law leads us to the end of ourselves, helping us see our need for a Savior. We will also spend an extended time of study on questions relating to Sexual Ethics. Rides are provided from the Hokie Grill parking lot at 9:20am. Breakfast is also 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 Andy if interested.


Bible Class: Colossians: The Supremacy of Christ

Teacher: Taylor Rollo

The city of Colossae was a bustling center of trade and commerce, which means it was also a center for the interaction of many different philosophies and religions. It was a kind of “melting pot” of religious belief, and though the Colossian believers were still faithful, they felt the pressure to sacrifice true Christianity for the relativism of their culture. Paul wrote this letter to uphold the supremacy of Jesus and show how the true gospel directs all aspects of our lives. There is much we can learn from this short letter, so let’s study it together! This is a great class for visitors to attend!

 

Christian Life Class: Young Marrieds

Teachers: Tom & Laura Gardner

Tom and Laura Gardner will be leading a class for young married and engaged couples for this eight-week session. This class will be using Gary Thomas' book and video series Sacred Marriage to focus on how God uses marriage to make us holy—to teach us about selflessness, perseverance, humility, and other virtues. We will also look briefly at some material from Tim Keller's The Meaning of Marriage. A workbook will be provided, so please sign up on the list in the narthex, but, also, please come even if you haven't signed up. Tom and Laura would be glad to answer questions in advance. Young marrieds and engaged couples are encouraged to attend!
