Winter/Spring Equip Classes

Equip Hour on Sundays is an opportunity to participate in an in-depth study of Scripture or spiritual life, in the context of community. Led by gifted teachers, each semester (fall, Jan-term, spring, summer) we offer new classes at both 9:15 and 11:00. We are excited to offer these winter/spring 2023 classes:

Classes Starting Feb. 5, 2023

9:15-10:30 Equip Classes 

  • The Message of Isaiah | Rm A211

Join Old Testament scholar, Dr. Cathy McDowell in reading and discussing the book of Isaiah and Barry Webb’s book: The Message of Isaiah: The Bible Speaks Today. The class combines teaching with directed discussion. Special attention will be paid to practical application. Not too advanced for seekers or new Christians, not too simple for mature students of the Bible. 

  • Open Circle (study TBD) | Rm A215

Open Circle is a class with the goals of creating community within and outside of Sunday morning, providing time for small group sharing and prayer, and providing interactive and substantive Biblical teaching. This spring, we will be going through a short book of the Bible with a guide.

  • 2 Corinthians | Rm A208

This is one of the Apostle Paul's most personal letters, revealing more about himself as he struggled in his relationship with this congregation which was embroiled in conflict. Join us as we learn about God’s goodness for disciples and the church today as we listen to the Lord through this letter.  

  • Biblical Justice | Rm A217

The purpose of this class is to join God’s mission of reconciliation and redemption of everything, through Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit (2 Cor. 5:18-19). We join God’s mission as we demonstrate the gospel by telling people about forgiveness and life in Jesus through our conversations, in individual acts of service, and working against systemic injustice.  

 

11:00-12:15 Equip Classes 

  • Hosea | Rm A211

Hosea describes a passionate love between God and God’s people… a love given, scorned, and yet given again. If you’ve ever wanted to delve into the passions and questions in this book, come and join!   

  • Acts, Part 2 | Rm A216

Luke’s account of the early church, empowered by the Holy Spirit, is full of adventure and wisdom. The same Holy Spirit animates the church today. Come and join others as we let God teach us through Acts. 

  • Minor Prophets | Rm A219

Explore Amos, Micah, Obadiah, and Zephaniah using the book Be Concerned by Warren Weirsbe.
