Adult Sunday School

Sunday School Overview

Our adult Sunday School program seeks to create Godly men and women with full heads and full hearts. We recognize that disciples of Jesus need more than just book knowledge or feel-good messages, but only flourish through Scripture and the Holy Spirit. Sunday School alone does not meet every need, but learning from other believers is a key component of training ourselves for godliness (1 Timothy 4:7-8).

At ECC we have two kinds of classes: Core Classes and Focused Classes.

Core Classes

Core classes address topics we believe all Christians should engage with to help them train for godliness. These lecture-style classes are offered on a rotating basis and are held in Fellowship Hall.

Focused Classes

These smaller-sized classes explore particular and/or sensitive issues more in-depth than Core Classes do. They are often interactive and may require a degree of vulnerability in those who attend. Focused classes are held in one of our additional classrooms in the modular building behind the church.

Current Adult Sunday School Schedule

(All Sunday School classes meet from 9:15–10:15 a.m.)

Reading the Pentateuch (1)

 

Reading the Pentateuch, taught by Michael Lyons (Fellowship Hall)

Begins Sept 1! It has been eight years since we last worked through the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy! Unless you have a picture perfect memory, this class will help refresh all of us at to the beginning of the story of God in the Bible. The first five books of the Old Testament are essential for establishing the major themes that unit the Bible together.

10/20, A Roadmap to Deuteronomy

We encourage you to read Deuteronomy leading up to Sunday's class! If you have the time, try to read Deuteronomy in one sitting, all 34 chapters. Otherwise, read 5 chapters every day for 6 days, then read 4 chapters on the last day, Sunday morning. A final option, however, is to at least read through chapters 1-4, 6, 8-11, 17, 27-34. 

10/27, The Beginning of the Story of the Bible

 

Six Steps to Reading the Bible, taught by Harvey Landholm (Modular)

Begins Sept 8! If you are looking for a good place to start learning how to read the Bible, this is the class for you. This six week course will walk everyone through a good paradigm to use in reading your Bible. It will encourage you to engage with the scriptures and learn to hear God's voice through His word.
