Adult Sunday School

     Study of I Samuel:  This fall, Dr. Bill Richardson, a professor of Marriage and Family Therapy at Reformed Theological Seminary, will lead a special Sunday School study. In I Samuel, God is writing us stories about people and families and following God in hard, confusing times. (The very first story is about family conflict and a weeping woman, Samuel's mother.) We are blessed to have Dr. Richardson lead the journey into the rich and relevant treasures found in this part of God's Word which you will find as engaging as they are encouraging.

     Gospel Project Class:  This class is based on the Christ-centered curriculum known as the Gospel Project. Based on the simple proposition that the Bible is not a collection of stories but rather a single story of God's redemptive plan, the Gospel Project provides comprehensive and integrated coverage of the full Christian story. The class will be coordinated by Alex Guidry with discussions led by Alex and others, including Mike McNames. For those interested in reinforcing and re-energizing their understand of Christianity from a Reformed perspective, this is a great opportunity.

     Christian Foundations Class:  Begun several years ago as a class for young parents, this class led by Jim Weems has "matured" into a broader discussion of the Christian life in an increasingly challenging environment. This fall, we begin a study of the foundations of the Christian faith, looking for a better understanding of them for ourselves and for those to whom we are called upon to witness.

     Discussion Class:  This is Covenant's longest running Sunday School class. Taught for many years by Auburn Lambeth, it will now be led by an experienced group of teachers including Auburn, Martha Blount, and Buddy Watson. This fall they will begin a study of the John Stott classic: The Message of the Sermon on the Mount, an examination of the most powerful single sermon in all of human history - personally delivered by our Lord Jesus.

     Sojourner's Class:  Another long running class, this one is led by Mike Wallace. A traditional "deep dive" Bible study class using verse-by-verse exposition, they will be studying the Apostle Paul's letters to Timothy and Titus which include encouragements and practical advice from the apostle to two of his most faithful pupils and colleagues in spreading the Gospel.
