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 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.
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.)
Ancient Israel: Behind the Scenes of the Bible
Please join us from January 6 - February 10 for a 6-week series on Ancient Israel's history. This series examines the historical background of every period in Ancient Israel from the patriarchs to the time of Jesus. The authors of the biblical texts assumed their readers knew a lot of this information. But 2,000+ years later, we often do not have a good grasp of the historical world of Ancient Israel that is essential in reading the Bible better. Taught by Michael Lyons. Schedule is subject to change.
