Adult education opportunities

The Discipleship / Adult Education Ministry Team plans various classes that are offered at ACC.  Our goal is for everyone to mature as a follower of Jesus Christ as they develop both Bible knowledge and skills for Christian living.

  • Sunday School -- 9:30 Am

    Standard Lesson Class

    This course systematically covers the entire Bible in a six-year cycle. If you would like to get a good grasp on Biblical history and how it applies to your life, then this class is for you. Our focus this quarter will be looking at what Jesus called “the first and greatest commandment,” — to love God. We’ll draw from both the Old and New Testaments to learn what it is about God that makes Him worthy of our love.

    Devoted Hearts (Women's Class):   "Job"

    Pain and hardship are inevitable and we can't avoid it, but as we look at Job and his plight, we will see in the midst of his darkness that light peeled through, hope stayed the course and unlikely joy emerged.  We will see that God sees in your hardships and welcomes your difficult questions.  Join us for this study each Sunday at 9:30 AM in the Choir Room.  This is a DVD driven study with Lisa Harper.  Study guides are available at your favorite on-line retailer.                                                  Class taught by Cathy Groen

    Foundations Class

    Foundations is a brand new Sunday school class that teaches the basics of what the Bible says about what a Christian should believe and how a Christian should act. For fifteen weeks, we will consider questions like:

    • Who is God & how can I get to know Him? 
    • Does God really care about me? 
    • What does God expect from me? 
    • What should I do about the poor and injustice? 
    • What happens after this world ends? 

    You might ask: Is this class for me? If you are new to ACC or just wondering what Christianity is all about, this class is for you. If you’ve been a Christian for a while and you want to grow deeper in your understanding of the Bible, this class is for you. We will meet in Room #103 beginning January 20.                   Class taught by Joe Schmidt

    Journeys Class

    Heaven — what is it? Where is it? And why should I want to think about it? This quarter, the Journeys class will take a look at heaven. Although heaven cannot adequately be described using earthly words, we will do our best to answer your questions. We’ll look at questions like: Will heaven last forever? Who will be there? What about purgatory? Will I be bored in heaven? What kind of body will I have in heaven? Will I be able to recognize my loved ones in heaven? Will my dog be in heaven? Okay — maybe we won’t answer that last one, but we’ll answer enough of your questions and hopefully give you a good enough vision of heaven that you will actually get excited about the prospect of going there when this life is over.
