to the ends of the earth: god's global mission
After vividly portraying the suffering and victory of the Messiah, the Psalmist envisioned the nations turning to worship the one true God: "All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations shall worship before you" (22:27). The prophet Isaiah declared, "All the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God" (52:10). And Jesus said to his disciples, "You will be my witnesses...to the ends of the earth" (Acts 1:8).
Throughout the Scriptures, God repeatedly declares his intention that all peoples on earth would know and worship him. How is this vision being carried out by the church today? How can we participate in it more fully? Come join us for Adult Sunday School in November and December..
About Our Classes
Our Sunday classes seek to equip our congregation to live more faithfully and authentically for the glory of Christ. At the heart of all our classes is the gospel - the good news of the grace of Jesus Christ - and the belief that true spiritual transformation happens when we apply the Gospel to all of life. As the biblical gospel takes root in our minds and hearts, we come to love God more fully, live in community more authentically, and serve God more faithfully in the world.
Most broadly, our class topics fall into one of three categories:
First, we want to teach the core elements of the Christian Faith. These courses include overviews of the Bible, the basics of Christian theology, and surveys of church history.
Second, we want to build Christian character. These classes explore the ways in which the gospel teaches us to pray, worship, grow in holiness, forgive and reconcile, and live in community.
Third, we want to equip for Christian service. Every Christian is called to serve. Thus, these classes discuss living a gospel-centered life for the sake of others. Classes include personal evangelism, apologetics, world missions, work, mercy ministry, marriage, parenting, and financial stewardship.
Classes meet downstairs in the Fellowship Hall.
