[See below for classes designed for everyone]
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.
Standard Lesson Class: This course is based on a six year cycle that covers the entire Bible. Our focus this Fall is entitled "God's World & God's People" and covers the book of Genesis. Taught by George Cornell, Jerry Wacker & Rick Lund
Journeys Class: Join us in our study of 1 Corinthians where we'll explore how Paul addresses some issues that arose in a gifted church, and how theology affects thinking, and how thinking affects behavior -- good and not so good! Taught by Mark LaPlaca & Brent Adams
Devoted Hearts (Women's Class): All ladies are invited to join us each week at 9:30 AM. We'll be studying the book "Armour of God" by Priscilla Shirer. Taught by Cathy Groen
Women's Study: We will be looking at the book and video teaching series by Lysa TerKeurst called "Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely." Lysa digs deep into God's Word to help you identify the roots of rejection, overcome the damage past hurts can inflict on your relationships today, and fully grasp what it looks like to live loved. Study guides and books can be purchased at LifeWay or your favorite on-line distributor.
Men's Study: "Following Jesus in the Mess of Life" -- This study is from Knights of the 21st Century. The group will look at the practical situations we as men face in life -- and how to handle them. Most of life doesn't feel very "spiritual." So how do we live in ways that Jesus would applaud while we're living in this crazy world? That's what we're going to talk about on Wednesday nights this Fall!
Adult Study: "Listen to the Prophets" -- We can't even pronounce the names of some of the OT Prophets. And we seldom read from those little books in the middle of our Bibles. But they have a lot to say to us! They lived in chaotic times just like today, and God had lots to say! This class will look at each of the books called the Prophets. We'll look at the prophet, his times, and the message of God delivered through them. You might be surprised to see just how interesting they are!
