Fall Equip Classes Starting August 28

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 fall 2022 classes:


9:15-10:30; Equip Classes 

  • Epic of Eden: A Christian Entry Into the Old Testament.  Room A211. 

Join Cathy McDowell in reading this book which organizes and brings alive the Old Testament.  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. Epic of Eden, by Sandra Richter 

  • Characters of the BibleRoom A215.   

Walk through the Bible by studying the people, who display both faith and failure yet have this in common: they are pursued by the Lord.  

  • 1 Corinthians  Room A208

What is true wisdom?  Where does power come from?  These were some of the key questions that Paul wrote about as he wrote to the congregation in Corinth,  a congregation that was embroiled in conflict and questions.  Come and learn about wisdom for the church today as we listen to the Lord through this letter.   

  • Introduction to Biblical Justice.  Room A217  

For some people the term justice can provoke questions, debate, and emotion.  Have you been wondering what justice is according to Scripture and how it applies to Christians today?  Come explore justice in a safe space.


11:00-12:15 Equip Classes 

  • Aligning with God’s Mission.  Room A208.  Starting 9/11

The Triune God is on a mission, reconciling the world to Himself.  This class will  explore God’s mission from several viewpoints, examine the current needs in global missions, and conclude with examples of how each of us may become participants with God on His mission.  

  • The Gospel of Luke, Part 1.  Room A211.  

Luke’s account of Jesus is one that brims with joy and reminds us that the gospel is for everyone, including those on the margin.   

  • Acts, Part 1  Room A216.  Starting 9/11

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.  Room A219
Join the Discipleship class in exploring Amos, Micah, Obadiah and Zephaniah using the book "Be Concerned" by Warren Weirsbe.
