Adult Sunday School
The Adult Sunday School is a 40-minute lecture. One of our guiding verses is I Peter 3:15, “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.”
“Bible Characters You Wish You’d Met”
April 11-25, 2021:
Speaker: Dr. David Howard, Professor of Old Testament, Emeritus, Bethel Seminary
Come meet five out-of-the-way Old Testament characters or groups who can teach us great lessons about Old Testament heroes, our loving and just God, and even ourselves. The lessons here show us we worship the same God these Old Testament characters did, and the issues they faced are the same ones we face today.
Rahab: A Canaanite Convert. A Canaanite prostitute embraces the true God.
Micaiah: A Lone Ranger. The one vs. the 400.
The Rechabites: Incredible Faithfulness. The “original Amish” remain true to their vows.
Habakkuk: A Transformed Skeptic. A skeptical prophet learns profound lessons about God and his justice.
Ninevites: Brutality Pacified. God loves even the most unlovable.
Dr. Howard also taught at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School & New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. He is the author or editor of 13 books and numerous scholarly articles.
Faith 20/20 is an interactive opportunity to learn—even from a distance. We continue with our twin goals of delivering thoughtful spiritual content (20 minutes) to be processed in intimate conversations (20 minutes). Each session is a bite-sized jump into deep topics with a side of getting to know some new people.

Theology of the Resurrection
Facilitator: Laura Kozamchak
March 21 and 28
Each year the season of Lent ends with colorfully decorated sanctuaries full of worshippers dressed to celebrate Easter Sunday. We come to church and proclaim, “Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!” As we approach Easter this year, this two-part series will explore the theology of the resurrection. Looking at scriptural texts and the history of this doctrine, we will examine the reasons why Easter is considered the highest celebration in the Christian year.
