Currently we are prioritizing our Sunday morning worship time. All other ministries are suspended due to Covid-19. We will soon begin to re-engage other ministries, so please continue to watch for updates.
Adult Bible School
We are not currently offering adult Bible School classes due to Covid-19; however, the following information will give you a general idea of our format prior to Covid.
Bible classes take place from 9:30-10:30am on Sunday morning. Please read the descriptions of each class below. If you are a guest with us and would like to attend one of our classes, upon entering the main lobby, please visit our Welcome Center and someone would be glad to assist you in finding the class you would like to attend.
This class provides an overview of the distinctives of our ministry here at Maranatha. We study our doctrinal position, our history, our ministries and our vision. We will also look at the important doctrine of ministry gifts and their relationship to the body’s effective fulfillment of the Great Commission. Those who are interested in membership here at Maranatha or visitors who are curious about how the church works would benefit most from this class. This will be a 4-week class taking place on the below dates.
Teacher: Pastor Andrew and Pastor David
In 2 Chron. 20:7 Scripture refers to Abraham as the friend of God and during NT times and even today Abraham is one of the most revered men in Jewish history. In fact, Rom 4 says Abraham believed God and it was counted to him as righteousness. But Abraham’s life is a picture of ups and downs just like ours. His sojourn was marked by faith but also by failure. This class will look at some of the significant events of Abraham’s life and seek insight for what they say to our lives today.
Each of us face decisions and stages in life that demand courage. Big or little, complex or straightforward, these choices matter a great deal. In the book Stepping Up by Dennis Rainey, he identifies five stages of a man’s journey through life: boyhood, adolescence, manhood, mentor, and patriarch, and examines a man’s responsibilities at each step. He calls men to seize the moment and take action, stepping up to responsibility and inspiring others in the process. It’s about embracing courage, rejecting both passivity and cowardice.
Decades ago, the women’s movement set out to spread its radical message and vision through small groups that met, multiplied, and eventually ignited a revolution. Our desire is that a new revolution will take root and spread in our day, as Christian women band together to ask, “How can we more fully reflect the beauty and gospel of Christ to our world, through the expression of our true, biblical design?” In this study, the authors have tried to focus on timeless biblical principles rather than the specific application of those principles. The goal is to provide a resource with foundational teaching that could be applied to different stages and circumstances of life, and that would be just as applicable to the great-granddaughters of our generation as it is to us.
