Adult Education

Connect, Learn, Grow

Sunday Adult Classes 

Adult classes meet on Sunday mornings at 9:15am. Their purpose is to exalt Jesus and to keep Him at the center of our lives. Our desire is to equip and encourage people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. It is also an opportunity for people to connect in a smaller setting beyond the large church gathering.

We have ongoing classes that meet throughout the year as well as four to six-week elective classes to help people know Him better, understand and apply the Word to everyday living and to learn life skills for living in the family of Jesus as well as in our homes, neighborhoods, workplaces and community. 

No registration is necessary for our Sunday classes unless otherwise noted. You are welcome to simply show up any Sunday and give them a try. We certainly hope you do!

We are excited to have some of our Global Partners available this month to share in person about their experiences and ministry to our adult classes. Adult classes will combine April 14 and 21 and will meet in the Mt. Hood/Mt. St. Helens rooms from 9:15-10:15am. April 14 Heather Murray and Kimberly Brune will be joining us, then on April 21 Chris Kingston and another Global Partner TBA will share. All are invited.

The Doctrine of the Trinity: A Liability or Legacy of the Church?
Beginning March 3

In our next series we will consider one of the critical theological beliefs that we hold as Christians that sets us apart uniquely from all other religions. That is the belief in the Triune God, that God has eternally existed as being one in essence, and three in persons. We will seek to answer three key questions . . . Is the doctrine of the Trinity biblical? Does the doctrine make sense? And does the doctrine of the Trinity make any difference? In addition to these questions, we will also look at some of the key historical controversies in the early church that helped the church come to an orthodox understanding of what the Bible teaches versus what is in error. It is important that we know this, so that we do not unknowingly repeat the mistakes of the past. All other doctrines flow out of a correct understanding of this one. Get this one wrong and the ripple effect is devastating. Some Christians tend to shy away from talking about this with unbelievers, because we may think it is confusing and therefore a liability to sharing the gospel with our friends. But apologist Francis Schaeffer said it was this doctrine that convinced him that Christianity was right! Come join us on this journey together, as we search out what God has revealed about Himself.

Living the Sermon on the Mount

Hosted by the Come and See Class
Facilitated by Dick Middlebrooks
Columbia Room

What would it look like if we really decided to live out “The Sermon” in Matthew 5-7 to its full obedience? How might it transform us, our relationships, our work, our service, and our world? This weekly Sunday morning discipleship opportunity based on the Sermon on the Mount meets at 9:15am in the Columbia Room. An opportunity for non-Christians to mature Christians to both humbly engage in the invitational words of Jesus.
