1) Membership & Serving – TOP115, Taught by Pastor Dick Bickings & Kevin Hardy, Gym-South
Get connected to Ebenezer and grow in your understanding of our local church family! Learn what we believe, how we began, what our vision is, and how you can be a part of it. Faithfully serving in the local body should be a priority of every believer.
The class consists of two parts:
Part 1: Membership Class, is the first 8 sessions, for those who would like to formally join our church and provides all that is necessary to do so. However, this class is also open to existing members who would like a refresher on our doctrine and history.
Part 2: Saved to Serve Class, the last 4 sessions, which consists of two phases: 1) A 3-part class which helps equip you for service while working through your unique God-given passions, spiritual gifts, and personality profile. 2) A one-on-one consultation to assist you in establishing ways for you to take part in God-honoring service. This process is also great for those already involved, to affirm/adjust how you are already serving.
2) Jeremiah, Part 2 – EXP309, Taught by Michael Hard, Gym-North
Jeremiah, often called the “weeping prophet” because of his sorrow over the persistent message of God’s judgment, prophesied to the nation of Judah from the reign of King Josiah in 627 b.c. until sometime after the destruction of Jerusalem in 586 b.c. He dictated his prophecies to a scribe named Baruch (36:4, 32).
Jeremiah’s task as a prophet was to declare the coming judgment of God. However, throughout the book we also see God’s concern for repentance and righteousness in individuals as well as nations. This dual focus is seen in God’s instructions to Jeremiah: he was “to pluck up and to break down” but also “to build and to plant” (1:10). Jeremiah sees a future day when God will write his law on human hearts, and “they shall all know me,” and “I will remember their sin no more” (31:33–34)
3) Colossians – EXP310, Taught by Phil Norris, Room 2
We live in an age when everyone is trying to live richer, fuller lives. We’re told to buy this, try that, eat those, and say no to the rest, as if that’s all we need to do to make our lives complete.
Two thousand years ago, the church at Colossae faced similar challenges. The Apostle Paul wrote a letter outlining the only way we can live complete lives: Christ. What can we learn today from this ancient church?
Called by many scholars the “most profound letter Paul ever wrote,” Colossians warrants a careful, faithful study. In this short, but exciting letter, Paul makes the case for the supremacy of Christ in all things. Best selling author and teacher Warren Wiersbe calls your attention to Paul’s essential thoughts on living a complete life—Christ alone—in this easy-to-use commentary on Colossians.
4) Fundamentals of the Faith – TOP112, Taught by Scott Holwick, Room 18
How are true believers in Jesus Christ to live? To answer this question, we need to understand the fundamental truths contained in God’s Word, and how those truths spur us into action.
Come join us as we use the Fundamentals of the Faith manual of thirteen lessons that blend basic biblical truths with personal obedience and service.
With topics ranging from “God: His Character and Attributes” to “The Church: Fellowship and Worship,” this study is ideal for discipling new believers or realizing afresh what it means to follow Jesus.
This class runs year-round and cycles back to lesson one after the thirteenth lesson is taught (the timing of which does not match up with the beginning and end times for the other Adult Electives). Please feel free to join or leave this class at any point to catch the lessons you have not yet heard or the lessons in which you are most interested.
