For 4 weeks this summer, the Adults, Youth, and Children will “MERGE” their Sunday School classes together for combined study at 9:40-10:50am on Sundays.
Adults will meet in the Chapel and will study on our theme for the year,
CONNECT for Gospel Impact.
Here’s a look at the Adult MERGE schedule:
August 5: “Gospel-Minded Civic Engagement,” facilitated by Matthew Hawkins, Policy Director of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission
August 12: “Welcoming the Stranger – Immigrants & Refugees,” facilitated by Ann Holcomb, Immigration Attorney from World Relief
August 19: “Sin and Its Impact on Children and Families,” facilitated by Tammy Folkerts from Building Families for Children (BFC)
August 26: “Human Trafficking,” facilitated by Jeanne Allert from The Samaritan Women
The Youth (Grades 6-12) MERGE Sunday School will meet in the Youth Barn for their study called “Not a Fan.” Jesus is not interested in mere fans. He doesn’t want enthusiastic admirers. He wants completely committed followers. Four sessions challenge students to go deeper in their commitment to Christ.
Here’s the Youth MERGE schedule:
August 5: “Defining the Relationship”
August 12: “Knowledge vs. Intimacy”
August 19: “Your One and Only”
August 26: “What’s in it for Me?”
The Children’s (age 5 – Grade 5) MERGE Sunday School will meet in room D215/216 for a missions theme where children will learn that in Jesus, we have everything we need to live a life that honors God and to study “The God Who Makes All Things New” where children will study about God’s plan to send Jesus back to earth to make everything new and right forever. The theme verse is Revelation 21:5. Preschool children will continue to meet in their regular rooms at 9:40am.
Here’s the Children’s MERGE schedule:
August 5: “Jesus Cares about People” and John’s Vision of Jesus (Revelation 1: 9-20)
August 12: “Jesus Gives Me Hope” and God’s Warning to Seven Churches (Revelation 2-3)
August 19: “Jesus Helps Me Believe” and Jesus on the Throne (Revelation 4:2-5:14)
August 26: “Jesus Gives Me Joy” and Jesus Will Return (Revelation 21-22)
