ADULT BIBLE CLASSES
Adult Bible Classes are a core part of Central. Our classes seek to faithfully teach God’s word and connect the word to everyday life. It is also where we nurture relationships, pray, serve others and have fun together.
SUNDAY MORNING BIBLE CLASSES RESUME MARCH 28
If the COVID-19 numbers persist in their present downhill direction and our community's health conditions continue to improve, in-person Bible classes for all ages, nursery and children through youth and adults, will resume at 9:00am Sunday, March 28. The adult classes will use the Philippians curriculum introduced by Steve Cloer in December and at least one of the classes will be livestreamed online for those who choose to participate from home. Come prepared to wear your masks and to sit in classrooms arranged for social distancing.
The idea for community comes from God. God is himself community (God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – Genesis 1:26). And he made us in His own image – to experience and share in community. He designed us emotionally, physically, and spiritually for life together, and intended that we live in community, and not live as individuals moving in the same direction (like on an escalator). See Matthew 18:20.
The early church community ate together, prayed together, experienced life together, suffered together, shared relationships with Christ together, sought and worshipped God together. They were like-minded and like-hearted (Acts 5:42).
Here are some more reasons we believe in small groups:
- Life transformation happens in community.
- Real, genuine and meaningful relationships are built in community.
- Small groups provide a place to belong—to be accepted, cared for and loved (and to do the same for others).
- It’s a non-threatening place to include new members, non-Christians, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc.
Each group is determining what is safe and responsible for their gatherings during this time of Covid-19.
