Every Sunday, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Sunday School for Adults
We were not created to walk through life alone. God made us in his image, and so we are designed to flourish best when we are part of the family of God. We grow in spiritual maturity and wisdom by worshipping, learning, and serving in the community of God’s people.
We invite you to participate in Central’s ministries of spiritual formation. These classes and communities are places to connect and belong, to know and be known, to be accepted by the grace of Christ and to be transformed by the power and love of Christ in every aspect of your life. With something available for every member of your family, we hope that you will find your place and your purpose in the family of God at Central.
Adult Sunday School Communities
Mike Farley, Cole Lescher, Carl & Amanda Lothman | 10-11:00 a.m. (Meeting Room 2C in Student Center)
This community for young adults from college through 20s & 30s is a great place to connect, grow, and learn. Our meetings include time to share life’s joys and struggles and to pray for one another and an interactive teaching that fosters group discussion. During the fall semester, we will study the kingdom of God. We will trace this theme throughout the whole Bible to see how God’s mission to make this world into a glorious kingdom of eternal life and love is the heart of what Jesus fulfilled and established in his life, death, and resurrection from the dead. And we will see how God’s kingdom gives us a purpose and framework to guide us in every dimension of our life.
My Sunday Family
Tyler Stephens | 10-11:00 a.m. (Classrooms A & B)
My Sunday Family is a community seeking to connect and support each other to learn how to follow Christ together as the family of God. Our meetings always include teaching and small group discussion as well as time to share life’s joys and struggles and to pray for one another. During the fall semester, we will explore the foundational beliefs of our faith. Joshua clearly stated “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” But what statements of faith and belief do we hold as the true center of our lives? This semester we will be taking a closer look at one of the church’s statements of faith and how it can provide a surprisingly personal and contemporary guide in the challenges of everyday life. This series will also pair with our student ministry’s study of the HC and Mecurriculum as a practical application for reflecting God’s character in today’s world. It promises to provide ample Sunday lunch discussions!
Dave Dunlap, John McGowan, and Jim Ellison | 10-11:00 a.m. (Sanctuary)
Navigators is a community of mixed ages and stages that seeks to deepen faith and develop relationships. During the fall semester, we will study the prophets in the Old Testament. The prophets show us the terrible consequences of rejecting God and disobeying his law but also vividly proclaim the glorious hope we have in the steadfast love of God. Join us to learn how God’s mercy triumphs over judgment and his faithfulness rescues, redeems, and restores broken people and a broken world.
Neal Nielsen | 10-11:00 a.m. (Parlor)
Gleaners is a group of men and women of mixed ages, marital status, and biblical knowledge who study the Bible to apply it to their lives and seek greater obedience and faithfulness to the glory of God. During the fall semester, we will study the Lord’s Prayer. There is one question that has dominated the Christian life for over 2000 years: “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1). No other words of the Bible are spoken more often than the 65 words we call the Lord’s Prayer. Countless times every day in the worship of the church, these words spring to life: “Our Father who art in heaven….” The prayer is sung, recited in unison, mumbled mindlessly at times, and, at other times, choked out through sobs of pain and remorse. Join us for our study, and you will never pray it the same again.
Classes last for approximately 1 hour. If you have questions, or would like help finding the right opportunity for you, please contact Pastor Mike Farley.
