LEARNING GOD’S WORD IN COMMUNITY
The goal of our Sunday School Department is to equip believers with the tools & skills to study God’s Word in order to know God better.
The mandate of the Sunday School department is different from the pulpit ministry, which strives to deliver the prophetic Word of God so that we may respond to God with worship & repentance. It is also different from our Small Group studies, which helps us to apply God’s Word and to live it out. Our Sunday School courses are designed to give you hands-on workshop-based exercises so that you can develop the skills necessary to read God’s Word. Many of the lessons also encourage you to study and discuss with others, with leads to the added benefit of being able to learn in community.
SUNDAY SCHOOL – WINTER 2019 TERM
OLD TESTAMENT THEOLOGY
The Bible is not an unbiased telling of history. Rather, it tells the story of the God who governs history. In this course, students will study the theology of the Old Testament, meaning that they will learn the nature of God as revealed through the books of the Old Testament. While we will be covering some history, the emphasis will be on God’s self-disclosure through this history and how this revelation points to the coming of Jesus Christ. In addition, students will learn how they are to relate to God, for when we learn about God, we will also learn His demands of us, His creation.
Apologetics is being able to give a reasonable defense for the hope that is within you (1 Peter 3:15). The Basic Apologetics Course is designed for those who wish to be better equipped to reach non-believers by giving honest answers to honest questions with gentleness and respect. This course cannot cover everything, but it does address many of the fundamental questions asked today.
WISDOM LITERATURE – HIGH SCHOOL & JUNIOR HIGH
This class will be a study on the wisdom literature found in the Old Testament. Special emphasis will be placed on the use of wisdom in overall Old Testament theology, as well as how to properly read and interpret them in their own appropriate theological contexts. The objective is to equip students with a foundation to properly understand Biblical wisdom literature and integrate it into their personal lives.
