First Steps Class

A week from Sunday (May 6th), we will be starting a new Sunday School class called “First Steps.”  If you are curious about Christianity, this is the class for you. If you are interested in joining the church, this is the class for you. If you have recently joined, this is the class for you. If you have been a member, but feel like you would benefit from having the things you have picked up over the years covered in a systematic way, this is the class for you. 
It will run on a 13-week cycle, so you can start at any time, stay for a quarter and then hop into another class (we’ll help you pick one). I am excited about teaching this class to get to know some of you better and to spell out these foundational truths. 
Because we will be rotating through, the lessons will be interwoven, but here is the main topic I have planned for each week:
  1. How to Study the Bible For Yourself
  2. Who is God?
  3. Knowing You Are Saved and Secure
  4. Resisting Temptation
  5. Believer’s Baptism and The Lord’s Supper
  6. Empowered for Service (Where do I fit?)
  7. Praying with Power
  8. The Nature of the Church
  9. The Operation of the Church (Business Meetings, Leadership and More)
  10. In the Beginning (Creation, Marriage and other Controversial Things)
  11. Passing it On (How to Share Your Faith)
  12. The End of the World (The End Times, Heaven and Hell)
  13. You Reap What You Sow (Budgeting, Saving and Giving)
We will meet in the Educational Building in the old nursery. Come in on the West Lang Street parking lot, through the back door, take a right and it will be the first classroom on your right (room signs are coming soon). 
Let me know if you have any questions!
