The Invitation of God, Part 2 (Matthew 22:1-14)

God freely invites us into a relationship with Him. How we respond to this invitation makes all the difference in the world....Download
Providing a strong, Biblical education is a worthy goal for every church that seeks to know more about God. We are grateful to have the opportunity to provide classes for all age groups. Here are three reasons why it is important for a family to be involved in Sunday School:
Reason #13 for bringing the family to Sunday School: We want our children’s best friends to be Christians. Not the only friends, but friends that can help one another stay on the pathway of living for Jesus. “As iron sharpens iron, so one man (or child) sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17).
Reason #14 for bringing the family to Sunday School: We want our children to be Biblically literate. Consider God’s words to Moses: “Assemble the people in my presence to listen to my words so that they will learn to fear me in holy fear for as long as they live on the land, and then they will teach these same words to their children” (Deuteronomy 4:10). We bear a responsibility to teach our children to walk in God’s ways: “Teach a youth about the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). While Sunday School is not a substitute for proper Christian parenting, it supports the Christian family by offering Biblical instruction that is consistent and constructive.
Reason #15 for bringing the family to Sunday School: We want our children to know sound doctrine, so that they are not easily deceived. “…we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth” (Ephesians 4:14).
Our children’s classes are designed to give a grasp of God’s Word at a level that they can understand. The class curriculum covers the entire Bible in a span of three years, making regular attendance a plus for spiritual growth and development.
We also offer Adult Classes:
Understanding the Christian Life. Want to know what God’s up to in your life? What He expects? What resources He offers? No one understands everything about the Christian life, but the information taught here will give a better handle on what it’s all about, what God’s goals are generally and how he’s going to get us there. Knowing more about God’s character, ways and plans for His people, plus His resources and gifts, make life and decision making easier. This class is open to all adults.
January Elective: The Gospel of Luke. Who was Jesus of Nazareth and what difference does it make? That’s the question Luke answers in this carefully researched account that reads like a newspaper serial of the life of Christ. Luke tells a story that has universal appeal. The Jesus that he portrays reaches out to people of every class and background — Jews, Samaritans, Gentiles, Roman soldiers, the poor, women, children, the powerful, the powerless, the sick, the fearful, the devout, the irreligious. He has something to offer everyone. Perhaps that’s why some of today’s most popular selections of Scripture come from this book — the Christmas story, the Good Samaritan, the Prodigal Son. Jesus of Nazareth was a carpenter from an obscure town in an insignificant Roman province. Nevertheless, Luke will help you discover Him to be the international Christ whose words and works have global implications.
February Elective: The Book of Acts. Friend of the Apostle Paul, Doctor Luke continues the account of the ministry and teaching that Christ began on earth. He is still working and teaching through His people today! This class is open to all adults.
