SUNDAY MORNING STUDIES

Outlanders Sunday School Class
Sundays 9:45 AM | Main Church Building | Triple Classroom 
A combination of Bible study and current events, with personal reflections and insights shared in class discussion.


New Wired Seekers
Sundays 9:45 AM | Main Church Building | Triple Classroom
 
The New Wired Seekers Adult Sunday School Class is about spiritual growth. Currently, the class uses The Wired Word as a resource. The Wired Word uses contemporary news events and associated scriptural references to ask interesting questions that motivate class discussion. Because the selected news event is different each week, members can attend when they can without depending on prior lessons. As an outreach, the class packs snack bags for the Recreational Outreach Center (ROC) in Garland, whose mission is caring for teenagers using Christian activities after school. Previously, the class studied the works of Adam Hamilton, such as Seeing Gray in a World of Black and White concerning the role of faith in political contexts, and the book Other Worldviews, Faiths, and Religions, and How They Compare to Christianity from a book by Fritz Ridenour to help elevate our understanding of other faiths.

Open Door Bible Study
Sundays 9:45 AM | Main Church Building | Jeanie White Classroom 
Open Door is a Sunday school class open to anyone both member and guest alike. We study the Bible in open discussion. We pray for those in need and take up an offering for them each week. We are a fun and friendly group with social gatherings throughout the year, and we volunteer together in several different areas of the church's work.


Women of the Bible Study
The Women of the Bible series starts May 20th. We invite folks, women and men, to join us for a party during Sunday School on May 13th to celebrate the end of our Disciple Fast Track class and the beginning of the Women of the Bible. Each session of Women of the Bible will be presented by a different volunteer. Are you interested in teaching or learning about a specific Women in the Bible? Then sign up to facilitate! Feel free to select a date, and whatever woman of the Bible you’d like to teach about. Suggested class dates and suggested topics are included below but are flexible. Questions? Contact Kathleen Isreal or Angela Carmichael. Sign up is available on the clipboard located in the Welcome Center or call the main office and we’ll add your name to the list for you.
 


EVENING STUDIES

Nick at Nite
Sundays 6 PM | Main Church Building | Triple Classroom
Join Pastor Nick for "Nick at Nite," a new Sunday evening class for adults starting in March at 6 PM. No homework or preparation required -- just show up and join the conversation! If you're curious about our sacred scriptures and desire a deeper knowledge of and love for our Savior, then this class is for you. Childcare is available for $10/hr/child during our Sunday evening class.   Reservations for childcare are required by calling the church office, and are due by the previous Thursday at noon. If it becomes necessary to cancel your reservation, please do so before 2 PM on that Sunday.

Save the Date: The Wesleyan Way  Summer Book Study
Sunday nights starting in July
Are you one of those people who ask, “Where am I going?” or “Where are we going?” and “How long will it take?” or maybe, “How will we get there?” and “Do we have what it takes to make the trip?” Then this study is just for you! This study focuses on the beliefs and practices of Wesleyan Christianity through story and Scripture. We will delve into the way of salvation taught by the Bible, as understood by John and Charles Wesley, and how, through discipleship with Jesus Christ, we become part of God’s work in transforming the world.
 
Each class will be 1 hour and 45 min (45-minute session with an 8-10 minute video, a 15 minute break (with food) and then a second 45 minute session with another 8-10 minute video). You do not have to stay for both 45-minute sessions, and you do not have to attend all of the classes. Come to those that interest you!
 
Are you willing to co-facilitate a single evening? Sign up is available on the clipboard located in the Welcome Center or call the main office and we’ll add your name to the list!
