The Christian Education Board helps our members grow in wisdom and deepen their knowledge of the Bible. We want to make the Bible accessible to all and encourage everyone to grow in their love of God’s Word. We tackle the hard questions, knowing that God’s grace is sufficient and that the Bible provides the most important answers to today’s biggest questions. We have programs for every age group and we encourage you to participate if you want to learn more about God and our faith!
Every Sunday, during the second service, all children are invited to attend Sunday School. There are two classes: one for children ages 3-5 and one for kids ages 6 and up. Both classes are full of songs, activities, crafts, and games, which help bring the Bible to life and make it easy to understand and remember. It is an exciting time of learning, building friendships, and enjoying the many amazing stories the Bible has to offer. (Children are also welcome to remain in the main service with their parents – whichever makes you feel most comfortable!)
Anyone in 6th grade or older is invited to take part in Confirmation class, which starts on September 23, 2018 and continues through May, meeting on the second and fourth Sundays of the month. Confirmation class is a 2-year-long youth Bible study, led by Pastor Carl, that takes the students through the entire Bible, giving them a solid grounding in biblical knowledge and a strong understanding of our faith.
At the end of the class, on a special Confirmation Sunday, the students stand before the congregation to publicly affirm their faith, relying on God’s promise of holy baptism, and pledge lifelong fidelity to Christ. It is a wonderful time of celebrating our young members’ desire to embrace our faith and become full-fledged members of the church.
Adult Bible Studies
Our current adult Bible study focuses on reading through the Bible. Pastor Carl is honored to help you explore the whole Bible in such a way that you can understand the overarching story of the gospel, understand its message clearly, and apply its message to life situations effectively.
The study meets weekly, and there are two sections – Sundays at 9:15 a.m. and Tuesdays at 10:15 a.m. Come to whichever session best fits your schedule. You are welcome to join in any time. There are daily Bible readings, and Pastor Carl will provide material to help you understand what you’re reading each day. The group sessions will consist of an explanation of the passages read that week, consideration of questions and insights group members have, and application of what was read to daily life.
Join us for this exciting and Spirit-filled time going through Scripture together!
