ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL OPPORTUNITIES
Faith Weaver—This class is designed for parents of children enrolled in the Deep Blue Sunday School classes. Each Sunday we will explore similar topics to parallel the children’s lessons. We would love to have you join us and become equipped to spiritually weave key points of faith into your family’s week as well as through a lifetime of parenting.
Leaders—Amanda Klinger, Ron Hoffler
Joy in Christ—Our first study will focus on the man Jesus called the “Rock” – Simon Peter. The study will consider Peter from several perspectives – as a fisherman, as a man who stepped out of a boat onto a stormy sea to walk to Jesus, as a “stumbling block” to Jesus, as well as the “bedrock” on which Jesus built his church. The class will also study Peter’s painful experience of denying Jesus three times on the night of Jesus’ arrest. Jesus’ forgiveness and reinstatement of Peter as a faithful disciple and witness for Christ will conclude the study. The lessons will be based on Adam Hamilton’s book, Simon Peter: Flawed but Faithful Disciple. A DVD filmed in Israel and Italy will show key sites in the life of Peter. There is a segment that will correspond with each lesson. This study will begin in September and continue through the month of November. Beginning in December the class will begin a study of the Old Testament book, Isaiah.
