Second Quarter 2022 Sunday Morning Auditorium Class
Class Teacher is Jeff Paschall.
Class Title is "Letter to the Romans".
We will examine this letter of Paul through the lens of our theme for this year…victory in Jesus. Paul’s masterpiece clearly lays out what we ALL have in common. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). And the “wages of sin is death” (6:23), so we have a serious problem that we are helpless to do anything about on our own. But praise be to God that He loved us enough to send His Son to endure the penalty that is due us and give us access to His wonderful grace so that we can stand justified before Him.
Our plan is to look at Paul’s logical arguments to strengthen our faith and note how we can use this information in spiritual conversations with others. We will emphasize the power of the Gospel message, what was accomplished at the cross of Jesus, the new life we now have in Christ as obedient believers, and how this transformation affects our behavior. Paul was always eager to preach this powerful message and we will eagerly dig into this powerful letter.
Because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, and God’s grace, we are victorious!

Second Quarter 2022 Sunday Morning in Adult Classroom
Class Teacher is Tim Smelser.
Class Title is "How to Study the Bible".
We all acknowledge that study and growth are essential to the life of a Christian. However, that study and growth do not happen without purposeful action. Often, we have good intentions about studying and learning God’s word, but we don’t always know where to begin or even how to go about it. During this quarter we will discuss various approaches to Bible study, consider tools to help us study, and then interact with the text utilizing those tools and methods. The goal of the class is to encourage us to have an eagerness and confidence about learning the eternal truths of God’s word.

"Ephesians: The Mystery of Christ"
This class will be taught by Tim Smelser.
Paul’s purpose in writing this letter to the Ephesians was to impress upon them the great blessings and riches they have in Christ Jesus. A deeper understanding and appreciation of these blessings was intended to motivate these Christians to greater godliness in their daily lives. As Paul states it, “Walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called” (Eph. 4:1). Christians living today need this same understanding and appreciation, so we too will live in a way befitting our adoption, redemption, and inheritance. Join us as we study this great letter during the months of April, May, and June.

First Quarter 2022 Sunday Morning Class
Class Teacher is Tim Smelser.
Class Title is "The Gospel According to John".
John's stated purpose for writing his gospel and recording very specific events from Jesus' life was so that his readers would understand that Jesus is the Messiah (20:30-31). For the unbeliever, this serves to show how Jesus, as deity, came in the flesh to provide eternal life to those who would believe on him. For the believer, this serves to strengthen and produce greater faith in God's Son and in God's plan for man. Join us this quarter as we study "the gospel of belief".
