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!

The Book of 1 Peter

Hosted by the Connection Point Class
Facilitated by Don Westerberg
Deschutes Room
Begins January 22

Ever feel like you are out of sync with the values and opinions of today’s society? Does it seem like Christians are an alien species inhabiting the surface of a strange world? That same feeling was present in the first century amongst our spiritual forebearers, who often found themselves on the receiving end of the bumps and bruises that come from swimming against the current of the dominant culture. It is not uncommon to suffer as a result of being different from the majority of those around you. And no book addresses those feelings and that suffering more head-on than the book of 1 Peter. The Apostle Peter, who knew Jesus as well as anyone in the first century, uses his knowledge of Christ to help us gain a new sense of the stability that is ours in an increasingly insecure world, as we await His return. We will take the next 8 weeks to camp out in this book and glean its insight for maintaining hope while navigating the terrain of a hostile environment in which we find ourselves increasingly on the receiving end of its disapproval. Join us Sundays at 9:15am.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ...I therefore...entreat you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called. (Eph 1:3, 4:1)

Join us as we unwrap and realize the astonishing gift of each of these blessings described in the book of Ephesians and how they equip us, as the unified church, to live out God's eternal purposes.
