Adult Community Groups (Sunday Morning Classes)
As part of the larger church, Adult Community Groups are mid-sized communities of Christ-followers who are committed to receiving, equipping, and sending disciples into the world.
ACGs provide a wonderful opportunity to connect with others, enjoy fellowship, and learn in community. There is a diverse selection of classes offered at both 9:30 and 11:00am on Sunday mornings during the school year.
Perspectives/Belayers Combined ACG: Meeting in Room 18 at 9:30am.
Knowledge of the Holy, with Dan Waugh. We worship, follow, obey and love God. But how well do we know God? Can we know God? What is he like? Preacher Charles Spurgeon said that nothing he could think of could “comfort the soul, calm the swelling billows of sorrow and grief and so speak peace to the winds of trial” as the study of God. This eight-week study will draw on classics like Knowing God by Packer, and Knowledge of the Holy by Tozer, as well as contemporary studies by Jen Wilkin and others to help us better understand, love and worship God. .
Women’s ACG: Meeting in Room 17 at 9:30am.
Beholding and Becoming: The Art of Everyday Worship. This ACG is a great community for women to study, pray, and grow together. We will use the book by Ruth Chou Simons called Beholding and Becoming. The study is built on the premise that “We become what we behold.” When we set our hearts and minds on Christ and His redemption story here in the details of our daily lives we become more like him – not just on Sunday, not just on holidays, not just when extraordinarily hard or wonderful things happen…but every day.
Focus ACG: Meeting in Room 17 at 11:00am.
The Kingdom of God, with Dan Groff. Look out an airplane window at 35,000 feet, and you’ll see patterns in the landscape below that would be unobservable from the ground. In the same way, when we examine the sixty-six books of the Bible through a wide-angle lens, we discover far more than a collection of disjointed writings. The Bible is one book, inspired by one Author, with one supreme subject: Jesus Christ, who came to secure God’s people in God’s place under God’s rule and blessing. The story is of humanity’s promised redemption and points us to Christ. From the world’s creation to man’s fall, then through the ups and downs of Israel’s history, we will see His merciful hand at work on every page.
Koinonia ACG: Meeting in Room 18 at 11:00am.
What is Man?, with Tim O’Connor. In this eight-week series, we will bring Christian theology of human beings into conversation with contemporary human sciences. Discussions will range from our origin and place in nature to our destiny, from our moral and physical flaws to our coming transformation, as well as an exploration of ethical issues that are just around the corner.
