Adult Sunday School
New Classes for Fall starting September 2018 through November 2018
Standard Curriculum–Led by John Giesmann (Fellowship Hall; Room 108)
Light enters the darkness. What does this mean? What does this mean for you, your family, your friends, your enemies, or the world? How much difference can the light really make in the darkness? Join this class to study the Gospel of John to learn more about the Light of Jesus who came to the dark world, and changed everything!
(Note of interest—The Teen Bible Quizzers will be studying the Book of John this year as well.)
Crazy Love–Led by Dave Yater (Room 118)
DVD Series by Francis Chan
God is love. Crazy, relentless, all-powerful love. Have you ever wondered if we’re missing it? It’s crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe—the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E-minor—loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. Whether you’ve verbalized it yet or not, we all know something’s wrong……Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn’t working harder at a list of do’s and don’ts—it’s falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same. Because when you’re wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.
Exodus: God, Slavery, and Freedom–Led by Connie Tomshack (Room 101)
Study by Dennis Prager
We are going to be digging deep into the Book of Exodus and looking at it from a Jewish perspective. Some of the questions we are going to be discussing are:
- Why should we in America or any non-Jew care about the story of one of the smallest nations on earth?
- Was the exodus followed by the revelation of the 10 Commandments God’s 3rd attempt to create a moral world?
- And if so, why didn’t God just five the 10 Commandments to the first humans?
- Is lying ever moral?
- When the Bible talks about hardening Pharoahs’ heart did God deprive Pharoah of free will?
- God tells Moses to pick the snake up by its tail. If you know anything about snakes you know to pick it up around its neck so it can’t strike. Why did God tell Moses this?
- Moses gets angry with God. Is it OK to get angry with God?
- Why is 7 the most important number in the Torah (the first 5 books of the Bible?)
- In Exodus, Aaron’s sons are mentioned but Moses’s are not, why?
- The punishment inflicted on Egypt raise a difficult issue of what is known as “collective guilt.” Specifically, was it right to punish the Egyptian people for decisions made by their Pharoah?
- Were the plagues natural or miraculous?
- Miracles bring people to faith in God-for a very short time. Why is that?
As you see we are going to be discussing some very deep and difficult subjects so I would invite you to come and be prepared to give your mind a real work out and in doing this we will be gaining a deeper understanding of who God is and maybe grasp his plan for us a little better.
