Adult Equipping Classes are the primary teaching ministry at Faith. Two classes are offered every quarter, and each year the classes cover nine key practices of the apprentice of Jesus. Please click here for a description of them.
After the service on Sunday mornings, there is a brief time of fellowship followed by the classes listed below from 11:20 AM to 12:20 PM.
Spring Quarter Classes (March 10th - May 19th)
Class 1: Daniel
Leader: Collin Brendemuehl
Description: This is a Bible study on the book of Daniel. Daniel was a faithful man of God who had extraordinary understanding and a history-making impact on the political leadership of his time. The setting is during the Babylonian captivity in the 6th century BC, and the theme is the sovereignty of the Most High God. It is an important book in understanding prophecy. There are plenty of lessons to apply to us today, especially about being wise and steadfast in our walk with God, even when surrounded by paganism. We are using a book by Charles Feinberg, late dean emeritus at Talbot School of Theology, called The Kingdom of the Lord: A Commentary on Daniel. Practices that will be emphasized include studying God’s Word, communing with God, and exercising stewardship.
Class 2: Lighting Up the World
Leader: Doug Dunsmoor
Description: In this class, our focus is on sharing the Good News about Jesus with those who don’t have a relationship with God. During some of our weeks, we will plan and prepare for how we will talk with others about their need for God and what He has done for us, and how we can invite them to trust in Jesus. On three Sundays, after our church service, we will head over to the Tuttle Mall. On those days, we will not go over various questions or ideas together; we will simply focus on talking to different people at the Mall. We are following in the footsteps of many believers before us, such as “men from Cyprus and Cyrene, [who] went to Antioch and began to speak to Greeks also, telling them the good news about the Lord Jesus. The Lord’s hand was with them, and a great number of people believed and turned to the Lord” (Acts 11:20-21). On other Sundays, we will debrief, learn from our interactions, and do some further planning. We will read articles along the way, use videos, do training, and have some in-class practice. Our focus will be on the practices of developing the mind, witnessing to the Gospel, and fostering spiritual community.
PLEASE NOTE: Readings for both classes will include passages from the Bible; if you do not have a good study Bible of your own, please let us know and we’ll help you get one.
