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.
World Religions and Philosophies
Is Christianity just one of many valid options in the "marketplace of ideas"? What does the wisdom of the world have to offer? Discuss the competing worldviews of our time and how the Bible confronts them.
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.
Jesus made prayer a priority which made the disciples curious about how to pray. If you have questions about prayer, come and discover what Jesus taught the disciples. We will study but also have the opportunity for discussion to help one another grow.
Untangling Emotions (for Women)
Cristi Lewis, Amanda Mettelmann, and Ann Knobeloch
Our emotions play a crucial role in our relationships with God and others. Rather than ignore or be controlled by emotion, explore proper ways to engage emotions and understand what they reveal about our hearts. God designed our emotions for our good so let's learn to handle them wisely in everyday moments.
Acts (for Young Adults)
Be inspired by Paul and other disciple's obedience, boldness, and perseverance as they spread the gospel despite intense opposition.
Classes for High School, Junior High, children and nursery are available during this 9:30 hour.
