Adult Bible Electives (ADE) provide an opportunity to expand your understanding of the Bible. Classes are well-taught, practical, and varied. You’ll enjoy connecting with others around God’s Word each Sunday.
Every twelve weeks a new selection of outstanding electives are offered. Choose from topical studies that speak God’s Word into important areas of life or spend time focusing in on a specific book of the Bible.
Because we believe God uses His Word to transform lives, we place high value on sound teaching and practical application. Minds are renewed and hearts are made whole when biblical truths are embraced and lived out. We encourage you to take a look at the current list of electives being offered then choose the one that sparks your interest or speaks to an area of life you’d like to strengthen.
Generally, these classes focus on solid Biblical content, often working through books of the Bible and/or important matters of the faith such as doctrine, the attributes of God, and theology.
Descriptions of the current classes are listed below and are also available at the Welcome Desk in the North Commons.
“Beyond the Ballot” Pastor Shaun Lewis
Following the presidency of Jimmy Carter, evangelicals became a political powerhouse. Some rejoiced over the church's involvement while others believed the church should stick to evangelism. What is the role of Christians in politics? Learn God's design for government, how to pray for our leaders, and understand politics in light of the gospel.
“Church Membership and Ministry” Pastor Kevin Sauder and Scott & Teresa Krause
Learn more about the values and biblical truths that shape and drive us as a local church. You’ll find this time to be informative, inspiring, and inviting as you consider taking the step of partnering with us in membership and in ministry.
“Holiness: The Heart God Purifies” (for women Karen Hutchison
Your fullest experience of God will only come when your life is holy and your heart is pure. If you’re longing for a deeper connection with God, you must first answer His call to holiness. In this study, we will learn practical principles for having a life that is set apart – a heart that is set on fire.
“Numbers” Denny Schlappi and Len Robinson
More than a history lesson, Numbers renews our sense of God’s delight in obedience. Israel’s wilderness experience is both a warning and a guide for our own experiences in life. We are strangers whom God is preparing for a joyful entrance into the eternal Promised Land.
