Our 2018 Fall Quarter classes will begin September 2nd and we would love to see you attend a Bible class. Here is a list of what we have to offer.
2018 Fall Quarter Classes
- Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense - Taught by Tony Ohlhausen - Upstairs in the Young Adults Class Room
Based on the book of the same title by N.T. Wright, who is considered to be the modern C.S. Lewis, we will discuss Christianity using common questions from doubt-filled skeptics. Through simple explanations to these complex topics, participants will be encouraged and strengthened in their faith.
- A Study of the Parables - Taught by Ryan Hendricks - Young Married Class - upstairs in the Family Life Room
- By Faith, By Sight: The Historical Connection - Taught by Skip Cole - West Fellowship Hall
Learn a bit more about people, places and events which are mentioned in Bible accounts as we place them next to archeological evidence and historical records. Consider that while we are called to walk by faith (trusting what we cannot or may not actually see), we also understand that the Bible record is one of actual historical value with tangible evidence. Jesus was and is a real figure in history and so were His friends, Apostles and enemies; they lived in real time and in real places - among real folks; So too were all the previously recorded people, places and events predating the coming of Christ. Explore Pharaohs, Caesars, Kings, Tyrants, palaces, cities, battles, disasters and other interesting things mentioned in scripture and corroborated in archeology and historical records. Join us for a different look into Scripture for inspiration, encouragement and enlightenment.
- Doing What Jesus Did - Taught by Craig Hayes - East Fellowship Hall
If Christians want to be a disciple of Jesus, then it is natural for us to want to imitate the actions of our Lord. This class will look at some of the practices of Jesus to better understand how they can be a guide for our lives. We will seek to determine how these life choices can help us reflect Christ to the world around us and help us seek a closer walk with Him.
- 1 John - Taught by Britton Pruitt - Auditorium
I John was written primarily for the same reason that the Gospel of John was written; so that believing in Jesus we may have our sins forgiven and have eternal life, John 3:16, I John 2:1, 5:13. John was also writing to argue against stated opposition to Jesus and Jesus’ followers. The main opposing force of the day was Gnosticism. Gnostics claimed to have superior knowledge and also believed that all matter was evil. We will talk about these foundational beliefs and counter-arguments in class, since John himself discusses these in his letters. John wants us to know who God is, why He has acted on our behalf and more importantly, who decided to come to earth and live among us and gave Himself for us so everything we now have would be possible – none other than Jesus! Please join us as we discuss these matters that pertain to eternal life and godliness.
- New to Netherwood Class (September 23rd & September 30th) - Taught by Walter Lane - Room 104
For those who have recently become members at Netherwood or are thinking about joining but would like to hear more about us.
- Book of James - Taught by Addison Keele - High School and Middle School Class - Upstairs
