Adult Sunday morning classes
Sunday classes meet from 9:45-10:45 (between the two worship services) in the education building behind St. Andrew’s main building. Childcare for 2 year olds and younger and classes for 3 year olds through senior high are available at the same time.
Faith is something that continues to grow throughout one’s life. It is rooted in the love of God and is nourished through regular worship and study. One of the great gifts of the church is that we can grow together with other followers as we stretch one another’s minds and hearts in community.
Make spiritual growth one of your goals this new school year and join one of St. Andrew’s adult classes. There’s a chair waiting for you!
The Lord ’s Prayer. Probably the first prayer we learn as Christians, the Lord’s Prayer is part of every Sunday morning for most of us, but have we ever really looked at what it means? Deepen your prayer life with this study of Jesus’ template of how we can converse with God. The Faith Journey Class meets in Room 205 on the second floor of the education building and is led by Harry Cross.
Surprised by Hope. Author and Anglican Bishop N.T. Wright encourages Christians to rethink their ideas about Heaven, the resurrection, and the mission of the church as he explores the biblical question of what happens when we die. The Jack Holladay Class meets in Room 206 on the second floor of the education building and is led by Curtis Corl.
Short Stories by Jesus by Amy Jill Levine. Jesus was a skilled storyteller and perceptive teacher who used parables from everyday life to effectively convey his message and meaning. Life in first-century Palestine was very different from our world today. This DVD study will guide the class through understanding what Jesus’ parables meant to his 1st-century listeners and what they can mean to us. The Challenge of Faith Class meets in Room 204 on the second floor of the education building and is led by Steve Suhring.
Gospel Centered Parent – Authors Rose Marie Miller, Deborah Harrell, and Jack Klumpenhower provide a lens of faith through which to look at the work of parenting, a lens which we do not often have in the secular world. Gather with other parents of young children in The Homebuilders’ Class as they wrestle with the gospel center of parenting. The class meets in Room 101 on the first floor of the education building and is led by Bo Hamrick and Martha Goodwin.
