2017 Adult Classes

The following classes are open to everyone. Even though these groups are “ongoing,” they are always looking for new members!

Chapel Bible Study Group

Location: Chapel
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 9:45 a.m.

Many of us yearn for God’s urgent call in our lives, and during June we will be seeking God’s wisdom as we study God’s call in the lives of Old Testament judges Deborah, Barak, Gideon, Jephthah, and Samson. These interesting lessons should be insightful for every person. Teachers will be Al Cott, Calvin Wenger, and Ed Moran.

Sacred Parenting Class

Location: Room 170
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

In June, Ben Lattimer will lead the class in a Bible study series. Welcome back to our summer Bible Study! This time we’re looking at the Bible’s Wisdom Literature. Over the next 11 weeks we’ll explore the books of Proverbs, Job, and Ecclesiastes together. Bring your Bibles. All are welcome! (Not just parents!)

Thoughtful Life Class

Location: Rooms 162–163
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

In May the class will focus on Joy of the Spirit.

  • June 4 – Jay Weaver will review John Shelby Spong’s recent book, Biblical Literalism: A Gentile Heresy – A Journey Into a New Christianity Through the Doorway of Matthew’s Gospel.

  • June 11 – Guy Wampler will share a PowerPoint presentation on Annual Conference actions since 1983 on same-sex covenants, and a preview of controversial queries coming to the 2017 Annual Conference in Grand Rapids.

  • June 18 & 25 – LCOB has long supported refugees fleeing political and economic turmoil and violence in their home countries. What is the church’s responsibility to those who come to the U.S. to escape similar conditions but without the safety of legal documentation?
