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. Soon, there will be pictures and biographies of the facilitators for our adult class.
Every Sunday, classes are available for all ages. The adults meet in the sanctuary from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.
Our Summer quarter at a glance:
God’s Urgent Call
Our first unit of lessons are drawn from the chaotic time of the judges in the Old Testament. God used the prophetess Deborah to call Barak to provide deliverance for God’s people from their oppressors. An angel of the Lord challenged Gideon to face the Midianites in battle. Jephthah was called by elders of Gilead to save Israel from the Ammonites. Samson’s “call” actually began with an announcement to a childless woman that she would give birth to a very special son who would deliver God’s people from the Philistines.
In the second unit, the prophets of the Lord demonstrate a variety of “sizes” when it comes to being called to convey the Word of the Lord. Moses’ experience at the burning bush is well-known. Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel received a vision of the Lord, but each setting was unique. Ezekiel’s call included a command to eat “a scroll” that was written on both sides. This represented how thoroughly he was to be filled with the Lord’s message so he could convey it to God’s people in exile. Amos referred to his being called by the Lord, but no specific details of that call are provided in Scripture. It is clear, however, from the courage and passion Amos exhibited that he was a called man indeed!
Our third unit draws from the book of Acts and illustrates the more general nature of God’s call. These lessons focus attention on what Christians are called to do in presenting Jesus to a broken world. At times we may wish for a call that is just as direct or intense as those in the Bible. However, Christians from all centuries have all been called to make a difference in whatever sphere of influence they live or work.
We must remember that we speak for a Savior whose message does indeed “fit all,” for He died for the sins of everyone. May our lives be a faithful testimony through which the call of that Savior to a lost world is clearly and lovingly heard.
