Sunday morning is a special time of learning and fellowship here at Grace Church. While our children and teens are learning about the Bible in age-appropriate Sunday School classes, the “grown-ups” get a chance to take what the Bible teaches and talk about how it affects everyday life. Practical Bible teaching, small group discussions and personal testimonies, DVD series, and a weekly prayer time…these are just a few of the things that make your ABF a place to belong.
Saltshakers: The Sermon on the Mount was a speech Jesus gave to his followers that includes the Beatitudes, The Lord’s Prayer, and oft-quoted phrases such as: “turn the other cheek,” “salt of the earth,” and,“Judge not, lest ye be judged.” The text speaks plainly and forcefully about what Christians are meant to be. This study, based on the book by Martyn Lloyd Jones, will highlight Jesus’ teachings for believers who are struggling to live like Christ in today’s world. The goal of the class is to provide a more full understanding of Jesus’ teaching, grow in fellowship with other believers, and have fun. (Don Mills, Room 207)
Journeying Together: In Flying Closer to the Flame, author and pastor Chuck Swindoll suggests that many of us have spent our lives trying to keep a safe distance between ourselves and the Holy Spirit. It’s time, he says, to experience all the blessings God has in store for us. It’s time to start flying closer to the flame! (Linda Reilly, Room 204. This group is for women.)
S.K.E.T.C.H. Liquid Fluidity: Biblical Application in a Fallen World. We live in a world of confusion, delusion and half-truths. We get fed up with our culture and our brokenness. We want to give up! But God has called us live by the Spirit, allow Him to work in us and through us, and put all that we have studied in God’s Word into practice. (Sam and Kate Mylin, Room 203)
Grace Connect: November 19, 26, and December 3 only.
Are you ready to get more involved? Are you a long-time attendee but not a member? Led by pastors and ministry leaders, this 3-week interactive class presents our church history, ministries, finances, and more. It is the first step toward meaningful membership (Pastor Adam Swift, Room 202).
Discipling in the 21st Century: We live in an interesting time! How do we continue to disciple one another with Biblical truth in an age of relativism? This class will explore the Bible’s teaching on topics such as creation vs. evolution, abortion and the image of God, Christian political engagement, responsible Bible study methods, and understanding your spiritual gifts. (Dr. Joe Schloegel, Room 208)
Young at Heart: Many Jewish believers were tempted to renounce their new-found faith to escape persecution. The book of Hebrews’ appeal to pursue maturity is based on Christ’s superiority to the Jewish religious system. Christ is better than Moses, Aaron, and the Law, for Jesus mediates a better covenant. More is to be gained by suffering for Christ than by reverting to the system He came to fulfill. (Pastor Al Reilly—Room 207)
College and Young Adult Ministries: Join the Grace Church family for church on Sundays and then stay for lunch, Bible study, sermon discussion, prayer, and fellowship. The College and Young Adult group meets on Sundays after church in room 208.
