Every Christian needs to be equipped for the work of ministry (Eph. 4:11). One way of doing this is through our weekly worship gathering (specifically through preaching God’s Word, singing theologically rich songs, and affirming historical creeds). We also encourage involvement in Gospel Life Groups and Discipleship Groups for discipleship and accountability. The purpose of Equipping Classes is to equip the people to grow deeper with the Lord by offering classes on various subjects so that they can in turn be able to better understand and apply the Bible to their lives and become a more effective gospel minister and lover of God and people.
Simply put, Equipping Classes are topical, Bible-based instruction given in a classroom setting, usually offered twice a year (Spring and Fall) for 12 weeks. We offer classes for all ages, but we only recently have been recording the adult Equipping Classes (see below). Some of the topics we have offered over the past few years are How to Study the Bible, Making Sense of the Old Testament, Apologetics, and Parenting.
Due to COVID-19, Equipping Classes have moved online for adults and high school-aged students only. We have been meeting together on Zoom in what we have been calling “Theology For Breakfast,” in which we have been studying theological foundations of the Christian faith, such as the doctrines of Scripture, Atonement, the Trinity, and much more.
