Adult Sunday School

 

Adult Sunday School is offered on Sundays at 9:45 a.m. Below is a full list of Sunday School classes offered this quarter, starting March 2nd:

 

 

THE MINOR PROPHETS

Room C10 | Teachers: Mike Conard, Kathy Kennelly, and Steve Apsey

 

We live in a world filled with artificial marvels, and too many of us have forgotten how to be amazed at what God is saying and doing by His mighty power. The Minor Prophets call the Israelites and us back to a life of amazement and achievements of God's purpose for us today.

 

THE GOSPELS AND THEIR BACKGROUND

Room A6 | Teacher: Sue Hulett

A study of the religious, political, cultural, and literary background of the Gospels.  In addition to reading the Gospels devotionally, we focus on finding the meaning of Scripture by listening to the Holy Spirit's leading and prompting.  We first study the history of religion, culture, politics, and written and oral language at the time of Jesus.  We will thus know more about the theological debates between Jesus and the Pharisees, the cultural influences stemming from Jewish and Greek philosophy and societal norms, and about the language and writing style of the Gospel writers -- and also Paul.

Just for examples: we might discover more about Jesus' unique use of parables and poetic forms, the theological distinctions between John's and Matthew's Gospels, and the role of Pharisees, Sadducees, women, and Gentiles at the time of Jesus.  Bring your Bibles, your favorite Commentaries, and your reflections.

 

HEBREWS

Learning Center | Teacher: Rick Welty

Though we do not know the author, we do know this life-challenging book to be perhaps the most Christ-exalting and Christ-explaining book in all of Scripture.

 

FUTURE FAMILY

Room C4 | Teacher: Terry Hudson, Dave Christensen

A 6-week DVD series by Andy Stanley discussing families, those of our origin and what a preferred future family looks like.  Whether you’re starting a new family, leaving an old one, or wondering if it’s worth the effort at all – this series will provide direction and hope.  David Christensen and Terry Hudson will facilitate the discussion time each week.

 

OUR SOUL’S LONGING FOR A LIVING GOD

Library | Teacher: Laura Wintory

This term we will be studying saying of Jesus.  We will dig into the interactions He had with women and men.  We will sit in on His teaching of His disciples and crowds.  We will consider His dealings with the religious leaders. 

Each week's lesson stands on its own, so you can join us anytime.  We will move verse by verse as we seek to understand how to apply His words to our lives.

 

The Book of Daniel

Room A3 | Teachers:  Tim Carlson, Terry Stewart

  Men, are you totally relying on God?  Join us as we study the book of Daniel.

His humility can teach us how we can totally rely on God. I need help with this. Do you?

 

READY WITH AN ANSWER (Part III): HOW WE CAN TELL OTHERS THAT JESUS IS GOD

Room C8 | Teachers: Randy Hroziencik 

In this video series from TrueU, we will explore the evidences that Jesus is God by examining history, archaeology, fulfilled prophecy, and the impact that Jesus has made in the lives of countless people.  Several hand-outs will compliment the video lessons, and discusssion is always encouraged.

 

NEWCOMERS 

Room A5 | Teachers: Pastor Johnson 

The purpose of this class is to introducing people who are new to Bethel to the pastors and various church leaders, as well as explain what Bethel is all about. Guided by our statement of faith, we discuss what it means to be a Christian and learn about our church.  Completion of this class is a membership requirement, but we do not insist that anyone become a member as a result of having completed the class.
