Connecting through Christian Education Classes
On Sundays, the primary focus of each class is growing in our understanding and knowledge of God's Word in such a way as to nurture our relationship with Jesus and with others. Through dialogue, Q&A, presentations and research we seek the Holy Spirit's guidance to grow in grace and truth. Just as we nurture our relationships with one another by spending time with our friends and family, so this is focused time during the week we gather together, draw wisdom from each other and spend time getting to know this man called Jesus. By reading His own words to us, by taking in the first-hand eye witness accounts of His life our faith is strengthened. Proverbs 27:17 (NIV)states: As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.
Sunday School Classes - Romans
The letter to the Romans is found in the New Testament and was written by the Apostle Paul. It was written to the church in Rome that existed in the A.D. 60's. It's a letter full of all sorts of practical stuff. It spells out exactly what took place when Jesus died on the cross - and it is extremely Good News! This is the class where you can find out why it is such Good News! Do you know that we do not need a professional priest or minister to go to God on our behalf - but that we can go directly to God ourselves and seek forgiveness and present our requests to God? This is just one of the radical concepts taught in this incredible letter! This concept is often referred to as the "highpriesthood of all believers". When this letter was written - things were scary in the world, just like today - times were uncertain. Eventually the main symbol of their religious beliefs - the Temple in Jerusalem - was destroyed by the government in A.D. 70. And still now - the Temple in Jerusalem - remains a pivotal place in history. Come and explore the world of the church at Rome and how the practical theology taught in this letter is so applicable to us today.
This is a great class to attend if you are exploring the Christian faith or want to be able to explain your faith to friends and neighbors
