SPRING ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL ELECTIVES
Beginning March 3. Join us at 9:15 am before the Worship Service.
Women's Class: None Like Him by Jen Wilkin
Leader: Vicky Harvey
God is self-existent, self-sufficient, eternal, immutable, omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, sovereign, infinite, and incomprehensible. We’re not. And that’s a good thing. Our limitations are by design. We were never meant to be God. But at the root of every sin is our rebellious desire to possess attributes that belong to God alone. Calling us to embrace our limits as a means of glorifying God’s limitless power, Jen Wilkin invites us to celebrate the freedom that comes when we rest in letting God be God.
Leader: Tom Metzbower
Location: Adult Annex 3
This quarter we will study the book of Isaiah. Isaiah’s very name means “Jehovah is Salvation.” He was in the line of kings and, as such, had relatively free access to the royal courts. His prophecies cover Kings Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah. In all, the book of Isaiah has 66 chapters—as many chapters as there are books in the Bible. Isaiah’s writings are the longest and offer the most Messianic prophecies; however, the message of salvation is clearly of major importance. Note that most Sunday school classes will deal with a single chapter and do not require previous classes for continuity.
Leader: John Towns, Joel Prell, Walt Danko, Scott Houston
Business investor Phil Wiegand shows, through personal anecdotes and solid biblical guidance, how an ordinary life can become an extraordinary adventure. Each of us, he writes, is given a “loaf” of time, and each new day shortens it by one slice. Will your “loaf” crumble into temporal meaninglessness or rise up with eternal value? Our time, talent, and treasure, the “3Ts,” are being consumed daily. In KingdomNomics, you will discover principles to help you be a wise steward of those “3Ts.” This study will be led by John Towns, Joel Prell, Walt Danko, and Scott Houston. The cost of the book is $15 (also available free online as a PDF).

Class topics range from studying books of the Bible, doctrinal themes, practical Christian living, church and culture, Christian history, men’s and women’s topics, and more. Occasionally a class that is specifically geared to a certain age group or women/men will be offered.

A special Sunday School class for newcomers:
If you are new to COG you might consider attending the Communicants class which is offered certain quarters throughout the year and taught by senior pastor Herb Ruby and/or an elder. The Communicants Class is for those seeking to learn more about our church; or interested in becoming a member; or as a refresher class. This class is designed to communicate to newcomers our essential beliefs, our distinctive doctrines and our philosophy of ministry. It also serves as an opportunity to get to know other newcomers and many church leaders.
