Approximately 30 Sundays per year, we meet at 9:00am for a variety of Sunday School classes. Our courses are a series of informative, interactive, and challenging classes that are meant to help you in your Christian walk. Promiseland, our children's ministry for Kindergarten through fifth grade, also runs at this time in the Firehouse. Childcare is also provided from birth to Pre-K.
This session will run from January 12th - April 5th (no classes meeting on March 8th). Here is an overview of the classes currently being offered for adults and grades 6th-12th:
Romans - An Inductive Study
Jason Tyrell & Trevor Wampler (Sanctuary)
We will continue our year-long journey through the book of Romans, picking up at the beginning of chapter 5. This class is an inductive study of the book, where each week we observe, interpret, and apply what we are reading. If you were not with us for the first 4 chapters, feel free to jump in!
Stan Bockmann & Craig Smith (Church Basement)
Christian parents have the glorious – and exhausting – privilege of reflecting the character of God to our children and raising them in the nurture and admonition of His Word. This class examines the foundation of that calling by exploring God’s purpose for the family, as well as practical details like family worship, discipline, teaching gender distinctives and preparing kids for using technology wisely. We pray this class encourages parents to persevere in loving our children with the very love of Christ.
Discovering Joy* (Membership Class)
Larry Lazarus (Hope House – Non Kitchen Side)
Discovering Joy is designed for those who are new to Joy and those interested in pursuing membership, to provide an overview of the life, ministry and beliefs of JCF. These 4 classes are part of our membership process, although attending them in no way obligates you to join. It is our hope and prayer that you will find these classes helpful, encouraging, and challenging as you consider what a great privilege and responsibility it is to be a Christian united to a body of fellow believers.
*This is a four week class that runs from 1/12-2/2
The Sermon on the Mount (Grades 6th -12th)
Jeff Crispin, Rob Miles & Tim Rue (Hope House – Kitchen Side)
Biblical instruction and application on kingdom living in a broken world.
