Sunday Night Life

We realize that disciples are made in the context of biblical community where people connect to God’s Word and to each other. Sunday Night Life is one of our disciple-making venues on campus where each family member can engage in faith-building activities and fellowship on Sunday evenings. The classes and programs that make up Sunday Night Life encourage love for God, love for others and love for a lost world. Please check out the opportunities available to people in our church and community through Sunday Night Life:

In this short-term discipleship class, we will compare and contrast three symbiotic cultures that co-existed before, during, and after the birth of Christ. You will learn the history of the Jewish state and the role it played in setting the stage for the coming Messiah. You will see how Christianity was birthed and the miraculous events leading to its expansion and preservation. You will discover how the Roman Empire and its culture enhanced the spread of Christianity throughout the Mediterranean. Finally, you will explore the writings of various early church fathers and their roles in protecting and preserving the Bible and Christianity. 

The material format for this class compares all three cultures simultaneously so the student can get a better feel for the life and events during the early church's struggles. Students in this class will strengthen their walk with God by gaining a deeper understanding and appreciation for the early church fathers and the Christian theology they preserved in their writings.

Ladies join us for a study of the book of Ephesians. Ephesians is filled with truths that teach us who we are in Christ and how we walk worthy of Christ as we live our life for God.

Whether you are wanting to learn to study the Bible, have lots of questions about the Bible and God, or you have been involved in Bible study for years, we pray you will consider studying Ephesians in community with other ladies this spring. Join us as we journey together and discover the beauty of knowing and learning God through His word.
