Sunday Morning Seminars & Classes

Adult Education | Our education program provides a rich variety of learning opportunities on Sunday mornings to complement the worship experience. Participants explore in depth various books of the Bible or a topic of current and shared interest. Old and young, new and seasoned believers, we never stop learning. All are welcome to take this journey even if you are someone with questions about the faith. Each class provides a combination of leader-led presentation and class discussion that allows us to learn from each other as we study God’s word together.  As a result, we grow in our understanding of our Lord and the greater story He’s calling us into.

Room 201, YFMB – Ecclesiastes 

How do you live a godly life in a fallen world? This is what the Bible’s wisdom literature in general, and Ecclesiastes in particular, help us with.  In this short course the goals are for us to have a greater appreciation for the wisdom books in general, to gain a working knowledge of Ecclesiastes and some of the ways that the book has been viewed over the centuries; and to come to a greater understanding of how to live a godly life in a fallen, irregular and unpredictable world.

Lori Rossi

YFMB Room 202 – Acts of the Apostles (cont’d)

YFMB Room 204 – Everyday Encounters with Jesus.  

How did Jesus respond to the people He met and how did they respond to Him?   Do we really know Him personally or do we just have a concept of Him?  Join us as we search the scriptures together for the answer.

9:00am Courses:

Henry Freire & Bill Ohnsorg

Room 201, YFMB1 Corinthians 

First-century Corinth was an international crossroads of trade, culture and religious thought. The church born out of this bustling city was beset with divisions and questionable behaviors, and Paul in his letters lovingly guided them to a place of obedience and holiness. His many teachings in this first letter have much to show us about being Christians in our turbulent society as well.

Barbara Zellman

YFMB Great Room Building a Relationship with Jesus / Acts of the Apostles

For the first four weeks, we’ll explore how our faith is not just a set of beliefs – it’s a relationship with the living God, walking each day in the Spirit’s power. We’ll look at what it means to be justified, sanctified and glorified, and how women like the woman at the well, Mary and Martha, and Mary Magdalene learned from their Lord and ours. We then move on to the book of Acts – the birth and growth of the early church, with its many lessons about how we meet Jesus and grow in fellowship with him and with each other.

Larry Blakeman & Bob Erbig

Room 202, YFMB Engaging Muslims

Islam is the world’s 2nd largest religion and yet most Christians know very little about Muslims and their beliefs. We will explore the history and founding of Islam, their core beliefs as well as the “objections to Christianity” that many Muslims are taught. We will also discuss responses to common objections as well as discuss ways to engage Muslim co-workers, neighbors, and members of the community. At the end of the session we want to have a better understanding of Islam and be equipped to engage the Muslim community.

John Gero

Room 204, YFMBKnowing Jesus

As Christians we are commanded to live as Jesus Christ lived. But how can we model ourselves after Him unless we truly know Him? This class will help you get to know our Lord by spending time in the four Gospels, the Old Testament prophecies, and the apostolic teachings about Jesus.

Sunday Seminar -Jeff Callender

YFMB Great Room, stage side – Becoming a Contagious Christian
“God wants us to become contagious Christians – His agents, who will first catch His love and then urgently and infectiously offer it to all who are willing to consider it. This is His primary plan, the one Jesus modeled so powerfully, to spread God’s grace and truth person to person until there’s an epidemic of changed lives around the world.” We will be studying the book Becoming a Contagious Christian by Bill Hybels and Mark Mittelberg along with a related video to explore how we should view personal evangelism, help you to develop your own story, and learn some useful techniques for sharing the Gospel with your friends and acquaintances.
