Our adult Sunday School is now our Sunday Morning Bible Study. We use the international Sunday School lesson plan where we study through the whole Bible every two years. On this page, we will list the lessons and Scriptures for each Sunday.
 
Every Sunday, classes are available for all ages. The adults meet in the sanctuary from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.
 
Our Fall quarter at a glance:
 
Covenant with God
 
A characteristic of God’s covenants is his provision of signs to accompany them. Such signs, or symbols serve as reminders or visual aids. As such, they keep people aware of both their privileges and their responsibilities under the covenant at issue. This is necessary; for while God has a spotless record as a covenant keeper, humans are just as consistent in being covenant breakers. God knows all too well our tendency to forget or to be distracted from pursuing his desires for us.
 
The covenant signs highlighted in our first unit of study are the rainbow, circumcision, Sabbath observance, and the presence of the Spirit. The presence of the rainbow and the Spirit point to obligations God has placed on himself. On the other hand, the signs of circumcision and observance of the Sabbath point to obligations that God placed on humans. An interesting difference!
 
Our second unit of study highlights God’s partnership with the obedient. Under particular consideration in that regard are Abraham, Moses, and David. They are key figures in the history of Israel, history that included a return from exile that only God could have orchestrated.
 
Our third unit of study touches on some distinctive qualities of the new covenant in Jesus. The prophet Jeremiah foresaw this covenant as he looked ahead to God’s intentions to “remember their sins no more”. The study from Hebrews 12 notes how Jesus is the mediator of the new covenant. Fittingly, that lesson is followed by instructions on observing the Lord’s Supper. Christ instituted this visual aid as a way for us to remind ourselves of the basis of the new covenant under which we live.
