Adult Sunday School Classes

Winter 2018

January 21st-March 4th

9:30-10:30am Sundays

 

College Class: Acts of the Apostles (continued)

Teacher: Marcus Aguilar, Kyle Strom, and Andy Wood

Join us in the college sunday school class this year as we tackel the book of Acts, written by Luke some 30 years after the death and resurrection of Jesus. We'll discuss the nature, mission and expansion of the early church, and see how the church continues to grow today. We'll see how the Gospel broek down all sorts of barriers and changed lives, families, cities and the world. 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 Andy if interested. Rides from campus are available at 9:15am from the Hokie Grill Parking Lot.

 

Bible Class: Daniel: Faithfulness in a Pagan Culture

Teachers: Tom Gardner and Taylor Rollo

This book is about Daniel and his three friends trying to remain faithful followers of God while surrounded by a completely pagan culture which presses upon them to conform.  In our day, we too are like Daniel and his friends, and so this book helps us understand how to live faithfully.  And it does so not just by giving us examples to follow but by showing our constant need of God’s redemption and provision through Jesus. Though His name is never mentioned, Jesus is the hero of this book, since it is His power and His gospel that keeps us faithful in a pagan culture. A great class for visitors!


Christian Life:

Men's: Reset: Living a Grace-Paced Life

Teachers: Rob Cary and Robert Rudd

Many of us are exhausted, depressed, anxious, stressed, and joyless.  Our time is often spent doing good things but at a pace that is unsustainable. Yet, God has graciously provided a way for men to reset their lives to a grace-paced life. This class will study a book by David Murray called  Reset: Living a Grace-Paced Life in a Burnout Culture, which shows weary men how the gospel helps us live a grace-paced life, reaching the finish line with their joy intact.  Books available on the book table for $10.


Women's: Every Thought Captive: Examining Some of the Lies We Believe

Teachers: Various

There are so many lies and false messages that come to women from the world around us, the devil, and our sinful natures, and it is difficult not to be taken in by them, at least at some point. Yet, God’s Word and the Gospel shatter lies and helps daughters of the King live in the freedom of His grace. Together, this class will examine some of the lies women tend to believe, how they affect us, and the truth God gives us in His Word, which then frees us and transforms us.
