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.

Jack Kraus & Ed Williams

Room 201, YFMB – New Testament Survey 

Following up on the fall OT Survey course, we’ll look at the “intertestamental period” before Christ’s birth, then see through the New Testament record how God’s promises are fulfilled in Jesus’ birth, ministry, death and resurrection and how those events became the springboard for His church.

Our Foundations class is a series of six classes over a two-year period. This is for both the new believer with some basic content and also serves as a refresher for a seasoned believer. The course includes a rich mix of formal presentation and discussion, while encouraging participants to openly engage with questions, experiences and personal perspectives.

YFMB Great Room – Passing the Torch, Leaving a Legacy – John

The women’s class is a family that cares for one another by sharing our praises and concerns. Many have been in the class for years. We have studied most of the books of the Bible including Revelation. Our theme for this session is inspired by the idea that Jesus is the Light of the World and we are called to be His light in the darkness. This class values leaving a legacy and passing the torch to the next generation of women.

Room 201, YFMB – Old Testament Survey

We will see how and why the Creator called His people Israel, and established His covenant with them. We will learn from both their responses to God, and how He continued to deal with them, all the while preparing for the coming of Messiah, His son, our great Redeemer

Room 202, YFMB Hebrews

The original readers of Hebrews were living in a time of political uncertainty and religious persecution. They were tempted to turn away from faith in Christ’s work and back to the safety of their former ways. It’s easy for us to fall prey to these same fears and temptations today.  Thankfully the letter to the early Hebrew Christians is still relevant, and we’re excited for this opportunity to learn from such a rich portion of the Bible together. Our vision is for this class to be a source of practical encouragement and spiritual growth as we dive deep into God’s word.  We’ll be guided in our discussions week to week by Warren Wiersbe’s Hebrews commentary Be Confident, along with other outside resources. We hope you will commit to joining us this fall! 

Bruce Corke

Room 201, YFMB Befriend

Do you fear authentic friendship [relationships]? Do your suspicions of others or insecurities about yourself create barriers between you and close friendships? This class will teach us principles for befriending those around us with the love of Jesus.  Join us for a great time of learning, fellowship and prayer!

Coming Soon:
Course descriptions & schedule for the Fall trimester will be posted shortly. There will not be any classes scheduled during the summer session.

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.
