Adult Electives – Summer 2017
May 21 – August 27, 2017
10:05 – 11:00 am
Adult Electives are held Sunday mornings at 10:05 for the purpose of equipping the saints for the work of the ministry through solid Bible teaching. We think you will find them to be dynamic, interesting, and helpful! Choose from 3 different classes this semester:

Taught By: Phil Norris
Room: Room 2
Written with a Jewish audience in mind, Matthew was written to prove to Israel that Jesus was and is the one true Messiah and King of Israel. Why did he write this way? Because even then, people had differing views and expectations of who the Messiah was supposed to be (just like today). And while the Jews were looking for a political king to save them from Roman oppression, God sent them and the rest of the world a different type of Savior—one who would reconcile God’s people to Himself once and for all. In this study, we will review and highlight significant cultural and historical aspects that arise in Matthew’s gospel to paint for the student a clearer picture of this glorious, unexpected, but all-satisfying King of Kings.

Taught by: Scott Holwick & Matt Zmarzley
No other New Testament book evokes the same fascination, produces wider divergence of interpretation, and is less understood than the book of Revelation. The Bible was intended to be understood, and Revelation is no exception. Join us as we progress to understand the meaning behind the seals, trumpets, bowls and other symbols. But more importantly…to understand what it means for us today and to learn how this book of Revelation should make a difference in our day-to-day lives. NOTE: This class will continue as Part 2 during the 2017 Fall Semester.

Taught by: Chris Jones & Mike Hard
When we consider the gifts God gives to his children, none can be greater than love. This summer, we will study 1 Corinthians 13 and learn to grow in loving the body of Christ and our neighbors. Join us as we use this passage and related scriptures to examine ourselves and grow in expressing authentic care for one another.

Why Should I Bother with Adult Electives?

In a time when we are all busy and rushing around, why should we add one more thing like Adult Electives to our plate? Sundays are full enough. Why do we need another thing to attend? Here are some reasons:
- To help you know Scripture:
During the elective hour, we have the opportunity to go deeper and learn about additional books of the Bible that we might avoid or push off as difficult.
- A place to ask ALL questions:
We usually don’t have an opportunity to ask questions during the sermon, but during the elective is a safe place to ask all kinds of questions and learn.
- To build relationships:
Through our time together, interactions, and sharing, we learn and grow together.
- To grow:
As we learn God’s Word and work to apply its truth, we grow in maturity, so come and see why so many spend the time with the Adult of Electives!
