We Believe in Christ. We Belong to Christ. We Serve Christ.
EXALT - Exalting Christ And Learning Together is our adult Sunday School initiative. We meet at 9:00am for coffee and fellowship, and classes start promptly at 9:15.
Our EXALT classes run in two-month sessions from September through June. There are usually two or three classes offered each session. We encourage you to attend every week, but if that is not possible, come as often as you can.
A new Sunday School session begins November 3, 2019 with the following three classes being offered:
The Meaning of Marriage - We will spend eight weeks discovering the meaning of I do, the meaning of male leadership, the meaning of female submission, the meaning of forgiveness, the meaning of trust, the meaning of a physical relationship, and ultimately the meaning of marriage. Whether you would describe your marriage as great or not so great, we are going to talk about...not family...but marriage. Whether you are a spouse or desiring to deepen your understanding as a counselor, let’s uncover the biblical meaning of marriage. Pastor Mark will be teaching this class in the Gym.
Am I a Soldier of the Cross? The soldier is a figure that appears many times throughout the Bible, as well as Christian hymns, songs, and literature; but what exactly does it mean to be a “soldier of the cross”? How does one serve as “a good soldier of Christ Jesus”, as Paul writes in 2 Timothy 2? This eight-week series, taught by Joel Campbell in the Fellowship Hall, will explore how key attributes and actions of the good soldier closely relate to the character and conduct the Christian is called to pursue in fighting the good fight of faith today.
In addition to the above eight-week EXALT classes, there will be two four-week sessions, one in November and one in December, as outlined below:
November: A Friendly Look at Covenant Theology - This class will address the subject of covenant theology. Many of our Christian friends hold to a covenantal reformed theology, i.e. the late RC Sproul, and also a number of high profile leaders in the Gospel Coalition. At Peoples Church, some come from a covenant infant baptism background, and still wonder about the differences between our dispensational theology and the covenant theology held by many of our acquaintances. Four weeks, four lessons: Overview of Covenant Theology, Sacraments and Salvation, Christians and the Law, Israel and the Church. Join Henry Booy in November in the EXALT room.
December: Jude: Exposing False Teachers & Encouraging Godly Living (This 4-week study will begin December 1st) - Jude lived in a time when Christianity was under severe political attack (sound familiar?!?). Doctrinal errors, false teachers, and moral corruption were everywhere. Jude’s call to the church was simple: Fight for the Truth and keep growing in the faith. This four-week study will look at: Introduction to Jude and His Purpose in Writing; Common Traits of False Teachers Past and Present; Judgement of False Teachers; and How Should the Church Live and Respond to False Teachers. Co-taught by Ben vanKlinken and Jason vanKlinken, this class will be in the EXALT room in December.
There will be no Sunday School on December 29, 2019. New classes will begin January 5, 2020.
