Developing as a Disciple

Sunday School & Weekend Classes

Good News!

Here is what we are learning this week in Sunday School

Sunday, July 30, 2018

9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.


Children’s Division
Preschool (Ages 3 & 4), Kindergarten & 1st Grade,
2nd & 3rd Grade, 4th & 5th Grade Classes

Topic: Straight Talk.
Scripture: Amos 7:10-17.
Key Verse: :   “The Lord took me (Amos) from tending the flock and said to me, ‘Go, prophesy to my people Israel.”‘ (Amos 7:15)
Faith Block: Obey God. I will tell the truth!
Objective: Sunday the teacher will discuss the story of Amos’s call to prophesy to the Israelites. They will hear that Amos was a shepherd in Judah when God called him. The teacher will explain how Amos obeyed God’s call. The discussion will show the children that Amos did not waver at all when he was opposed by Amaziah. Also, they will hear that Amos spoke the truth. The teacher will end the lesson by telling the children that sometimes people may reject us, but God will give us the strength to continue doing what God wants us to do.
Youth Division
6th through 8th Grade (Middle School)
9th through 12th Grade (High School)
Topic: Don’t Give Up.
Scripture:  Amos 7:10-17.
Key Verse: Amos answered Amaziah, “I was neither a prophet nor the son of a prophet, but I was a shepherd, and I also took care of sycamore-fig trees. But the Lord took me from tending the flock and said to me, ‘Go, prophesy to my people Israel.”‘ (Amos 7:14-15)
General Lesson: Calling of Prophets.
Overview:  In the scripture people looked at Amos and saw a man who tended sheep and sycamore trees. But, the teacher will explain to the teens that God looked at him and saw a bold prophet. They will discuss that God uses ordinary people to accomplish His will so that He gets the glory. The teens will hear when you find God using you in an unexpected way, submit to His direction and do not be afraid. The teacher will ask each teen will you trust God and commit to being His messenger no matter how He chooses to use you?
Adult Division
Adult Classes
Topic: Facing Hostility.
Scripture: Amos 7:10-17.
Key Verse: Amos answered Amaziah, “I was neither a prophet nor the son of a prophet, but I was a shepherd, and I also took care of sycamore-fig trees. “But the Lord took me from tending the flock and said to me, ‘Go, prophesy to my people Israel.’  (Amos 7:14-15)
General Lesson: Amos’s Call.
Unifying Lesson Principle:  At times we find obeying God’s direction to be in direct contrast to what others think we should do. Is it possible to remain determined despite the opposition? Amos committed to serving even in the face of negativity.

Purpose of Sunday School

We believe in the Great Commission; as it applies to Sunday School. To change lives for Jesus Christ by evangelizing the lost and disciplining those who respond to the Gospel through our classes, which we study the philosophy of the Bible and it’s teaching on how to live the principles of Christ.


The Sunday School Ministry is committed to moving members from Membership to Discipleship.

“Information and Explanation are Foundational to our teaching, but Transformation is the Goal!”
Therefore, we focus on teaching believers to obey him in every aspect of their lives and to develop a relationship with Christ that leads to becoming fully committed followers of Christ.


Jesus gives us a clear and concise ministry goal: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, “Teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the ages.”
