The purpose of the Adult Sunday School ministry is to teach the application of God's word to life's circumstances in a cross-generational, discipleship-focused environment. (Heb. 10:24-25)
OUR CLASSES BEGINNING JUNE 5:
A Biblical Theology of Emotions (Kent Kloter, Worship Center)
Emotions are part of being human. Sometimes they can be powerful, and sometimes they can be minimized or misunderstood. In this class, we’ll discover God’s good design for our emotions when processed under the control of the Spirit and through the lens of God’s Word. We’ll spend time discussing some of the stronger emotions common to all of us, such as anger, fear, worry and depression. Ultimately, we’ll discover the crucial role our emotions play in revealing what we believe about God and their purpose of drawing us nearer to Him.
Prepared to Make a Defense: An Intro to Christian Apologetics (Blake Gerber, Room 101A)
The Word of God commands us to be ready to defend our faith with gentleness and respect. A command that can sometimes feel daunting to even the most seasoned believer. What are the best tactics when approaching such conversations? What are the most crucial issues on which to focus? What are some common objections to which we need to be prepared to give answer? This class will equip you to “give verbal defense” (the Greek “Apologia”) to questions or objections to your faith, while helping you become even more confident in the sufficiency of Scripture.
Hebrews and the General Epistles: Persevering in Hope, Faith and Love (Dave Robinson, Room 107)
A continuation of our New Testament series, this class will focus on the eight letters from Hebrews through Jude. In their historical context, we’ll discover how each of the five authors –James, Peter, John, Jude and the unknown author of Hebrews – provided exhortation for living in a world that seemed incompatible with following Jesus. While written to the first century Church, these letters are for all believers today, orienting us to the supremacy of Christ in an idolatrous culture and exhorting us to growing maturity and faithfulness.
BCC also has small groups that meet throughout the week, called Care Groups. For more information on Care Groups please contact the church office at 309-508-1755 or email email@example.com.
