Current Adult Opportunities - January 2021

Adult Ed Online Class:
Spiritual Roots: Our Christian Heritage
with Gene Carbaugh

Sundays, 11 am - 12 pm via Zoom
with hosts Will Shaw and Linnea Banta

Join us for our 6-week Jan Term class – “Spiritual Roots: Out Church Heritage” – a special Zoom Adult Sunday School class.

Ever wonder how the Christian Church got to be where it is today? This class will be a 6-week overview to the history of the Church. We’ll discover our spiritual roots and develop a sense of belonging to a community of believers 2,000 years old as we meet key people, major events, and significant places of church history and see the development of doctrine, traditions, and denominations. We’ll examine some doctrinal issues and find that our personal and organizational struggles may not be as unique as we thought. We’ll better understand our world today and hopefully learn to avoid some of the mistakes of yesteryear. 

The class will run Jan. 3 – Feb. 7, 2021.

Bible Study:
Radical Discipleship: Paul's Letters from Prison
with Pastor Ralph

Mondays & Wednesdays, 9:00 - 10:00 am
via Facebook Live

Resuming Jan. 6, 2021 - LIVE IN PERSON
Wednesdays, 9:00 am, WS North Sanctuary

We are taking a break during Christmas and New Years – the study will resume on Wed., Jan. 6, 2021 with the next Monday session on Jan. 11, 2021.

Here’s your opportunity to join Pastor Ralph LIVE IN PERSON for his Bible study on Radical Discipleship: Paul’s Letters from Prison: Wednesdays, 9:00 – 10:00 am, WS North Sanctuary (615 Wright Ave – Richland). No registration required! Doors will open at 8:45 am.

During this Bible study, Pastor Ralph will take you through the letters Paul wrote from prison. The Apostle Paul didn’t just preach the gospel, he lived a gospel life. The way of Jesus overflowed not just from his words and actions but his priorities and his decisions. He held together joy and sacrifice as well as grace with discipline. In this study, we are going to examine the four letters – Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon – he wrote while in a Roman Prison. Each of these letters were not simply his appeal to struggling churches in his absence but powerful calls to live a life worthy of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They were a call to radical discipleship.

We will continue to live stream the Bible study on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:00 – 10:00 am as well. Tune in live on Facebook – you can watch even if you don’t have a Facebook account. The video will also be posted HERE after the livestream is done – or click at the top of our webpage on “Videos” then “Bible Study with Pastor Ralph” and “Radical Discipleship”. You can also view all past videos for this study.

Life Groups

Life Groups are small communities (8-12 people) who meet regularly (weekly usually) for short seasons (6 to 12 months). They foster community on a deeper level than is possible through just Sunday worship services. Life Group members share life, pray together, encourage one another in following Jesus as our leader and savior. 

Each group has a unique flavor but all aim to nurture, encourage, and experience personal fellowship, Bible study, prayer, care, and service together. Everyone is encouraged to join a Life Group. They meet at various times during the week; in people’s homes and even some on the church campus.
