Current Sunday Bible Classes

Through August 27
Classes are from 9:30-10:30 AM
 

“Hymns and their stories” – We have a rich heritage of worship music, and most hymns were written with a specific purpose in mind. This class will explore the scripture basis and background stories of some of our well-known and best-loved hymns, increasing your expression of praise to our magnificent God. Various leaders in 101

 

“I AM” – Christians confess Jesus as Lord and Savior, lift Him up in worship, and make the world a better place in response to His love. But WHO is Jesus, really?  We will search scripture to better understand why He is the focus of the Bible, the center of history, and the heart of missions.  He is the incomparable I AM. Led by Gloria, Pastor Steve, Pastor Brad in 201

 

 
All In Orphan Care – (Ends August 20) We, as believers, have been adopted into God’s family. This is a primary teaching of our faith which impacts how we interact with our world, including children who have no home. We care because we have been greatly cared for. We rescue because we are the rescued ones. Various leaders in 102/103
 
 
 
 
 
 

Special Labor Day Bible Class

September 3
9:30 - 10:30 AM

Real ministry belongs in church, right? Contrary to popular belief, all Christians are called to minister—especially at work. In honor of Labor Day, Pastor Steve will lead a discussion on how all believers have been called by God to share the gospel and make disciples. For those of us who spend most of our lives at work, God has called us to carry out His mission from our office desks, board rooms, and lunch tables. Utilizing the video teaching from Pastor Larry Osborne, you will see Biblical examples that show how Christians should see their work as a calling from God.

Legacy of Luther
Five hundred years ago this October 31st, Martin Luther posted 95 theological statements for debate on the castle church in Wittenberg, Germany and
the Protestant Reformation was begun.  This eight week course will look at the events and people involved with this God-directed movement that recaptured the truth of Scripture bringing to light
the truth of the Word of God.  We will look at the conditions and false teaching which gave rise to
the Reformation, the life of Martin Luther, his theology and hymnody, and why Luther still
matters today. Join us as we look back to the historical record and look at the need for
continued reformation today. 
Led by Richard Leslie in Room 102/103

Richard had served as Minister of Music and Celebration at St Timothy for many years, and
is now
serving as our Minister of Music Emeritus. 
His love for teaching the Word is as strong as ever, and he has the ability to weave tidbits of history
into each lesson of faith. 

 

What Did Jesus REALLY Say?  
The Gospels contain 116 events and sayings taken from Jesus’ life and ministry.  We often try to understand them using our 21st century western customs and ideals when they were spoken to 1st century middle easterners using idioms and cultural references we are not familiar with.  Come and hear the teachings of Jesus as they were meant to be heard. Led by John Rohan in Room 202

John has been a trusted teacher of God’s truth
for many years, bringing insight into scripture that strengthens a Biblical perspective. He includes information about recent discoveries that support events
recorded in scripture. He and his wife, Nancy, are devoted to helping others discover the joy of following Jesus.
