SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES
Jesus Continued: This theologically based class will be based off the book “Jesus Continued” by JD Greear and will focus on pneumatology which is the study of the Holy Spirit. Join Daniel Nauta this week as he leads the class in Classroom 1.
Priorities: This class will focus on our priorities, looking at why we do what we do and how we manage/schedule our days. Adam Krick will be leading this weeks’ class in Classroom 4 as he aims to teach the importance of having a biblical approach to our time.
Church 101 Q&A: As we go through the Church 101 series in our Sunday Morning Worship time, questions may arise. This class will be formatted as a question and answer time where the questions that you have can be submitted on Sunday and discussed during Sunday School. There will be a QR code on your bulletin on Sunday Morning that you can scan and then submit your questions anonymously. After the service, during Sunday School we will sit down and dialogue through your questions together, diving deeper into God’s Word. Be sure to submit your questions on Sunday and join Pastor Tim after the service. (MPR)
