In a large church such as ours, a Sunday School class offers a great opportunity to develop friendships and enjoy Christian community. The weekly rhythm of Sunday provides a regular opportunity to gather with others and study the Christian faith. Our adult Sunday morning program includes a variety of regular classes with a wide range of sizes, formats, and content. Leadership is drawn from among church staff, church members, and professional guests. See the descriptions of current classes as you search for one that might be right for you.

Bethel Bible Class (begins February 19, 2023)

  • Location: Room L-203
  • Led by: Tom Swain and Marty Kaufman
  • Life stage: Adults of all ages

The Bible is God’s “love letter” to us, it reveals how God demonstrates His love, and, it teaches us how we should live. We know the Bible stories and lean on many passages to direct our lives, but do we see the Bible as one fully-connected love story by God, from Genesis to Revelation? Have we studied the Bible as the one continuous love story that it is? This is what the Bethel Bible Series reveals for us. Through the Bethel Bible Series class, we gain a better understanding of God’s Word and His purpose for our lives. The Bethel Bible class curriculum: Bethel Orientation, Creation and its Concepts, Creation and its Concepts, Divine Intentions, Disharmony, Pronouncement of a Destiny, Ardent Dreams of a Destiny, Ardent Dreams of a Destiny & Benediction. This series will end April 30, 2023.
