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.
