Equipping Classes

Equipping Classes

We desire that men and women of every age and every stage of faith feel equipped with the tools they need to understand biblical truth, serve with joy, and share their faith with confidence.

Equipping Classes are offered every Sunday during the 9:30 hour and are completed in approximately 12 weeks. Classes will focus on specific areas of Christian theology, church membership, and spiritual growth. Participants enjoy rich teaching from skilled teachers while connecting with others through discussion and shared study.

All those who complete all of the Equipping Courses in this foundation series will be celebrated at a special graduation dinner at the end of the series.

We encourage you to check the current list of Equipping Classes. Get to know God better as you learn from His Word.

Equipping classes are 12 week classes (or approximate) that focus on specific areas of Christian theology, church membership, and spiritual growth during the 9:30 hour. The aim is to equip the saints for the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:11-16).

The Foundations 100 classes include:

  • Christian Theology 1,2, and 3: These classes cover basic Christian theology from the doctrine of the Bible all the way to the doctrine of last things.
  • How to Read the Bible
  • Spiritual Disciplines: Fasting, Prayer, etc.
  • Christian Apologetics: How to defend the faith.
  • Introduction to Biblical One-Anothering
  • Personal Evangelism
  • Life in the Father's House: How to function in the church as a member.

These 9 classes help provide a comprehensive (not exhaustive) basis for what a believer should know. After completing these 9 classes, a Foundations 200 series will be offered.

Note: Class names may differ from the above but cover the same material. 

Descriptions of the current classes are listed below and are also available at the Welcome Desk in the North Commons.

Give Away Your Faith Kyle Krall and Mark Hutchison
Does speaking about your faith with someone else feel very difficult? Do you wish you could be better prepared to know how to share your faith? Join us as we study the topic of personal evangelism, so that we can help reach the world with the gospel. 
Our Great Salvation (Christian Theology 2) Josh Gerber and Tysin Smith
Our salvation includes many wonderful aspects that describe what God has done, is doing, and will do in us. Perhaps words such as justification sound confusing or too difficult for you. This class will help you see the greatness of God's work in our salvation.
Colossians Denny Schlappi and Phil Somers
Discover the immense power of Christ's redemptive work and the freedom it brings.

Classes for High School, Junior High, children and nursery are available during this 9:30 hour.
