Equipping Hour

Make Disciples Who Make Disciples

All of our Adult Equipping Hour classes are designed to help you grow in your walk with Christ as you deepen both your knowledge and love for God. They are offered on Sunday mornings beginning at 9:00 am.

Bible Book Classes

Read the Bible for Life | Room A208-210 | Beginning September 16th
The objectives of this class are to appreciate, be awed, and understand biblical principles and themes as we read the entire Bible. After the introduction classes, the class discussion will focus on the reading over the past week and fellowship around the Scripture. This is a discussion class dependent on reading before class and along with introspection. After the class, it is expected that one could “thumb” through the Bible and relate the gospel story in a familiar, excited and sure manner. Led by Jim Clardy.

Required books for this class:

The Miracles of Christ: A Study of the Book of Mark | 2 Timothy 2:2 Women’s Class | Room A211
This class consists of prayer time followed by a discussion of assigned verses directed by one of the leaders. We welcome women of all ages who are interested in prayer and Bible study. Led by Ann Adams, Mary Kate Arrington, Charlotte Brotherton, and Yvonne Samons.

Revelation | College and Career Class
We are currently studying the book of Revelation. It’s in this book that we see Christ glorified like nowhere else in Scripture. If you want to study the glory of the risen Christ, join us! We’d love to have you learn with us as we go through this wonderful book. Our class is a mixture of fellowship, teaching, and discussion. So, if you are single and age 18 to 30-ish, we would love to have you join us. Led by Tim Cain and Howard Bennett.

Topical Classes

What Really Matters | Joined Heirs | Activity Center | Beginning September 23rd
Do you ever wonder what really matters? How can you put what really matters first in your heart and practice? Timothy is a young pastor and Paul’s beloved son in the faith. As Paul sees his time drawing to a close, he knows there is much that needs to be kept, fought for, and guarded. The things that really matter most are in his heart as he realizes the challenges that are present and that lie ahead for Timothy. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Paul pours into Timothy that which is of the utmost importance. There is love and a sense of urgency throughout his message. Paul is passing the baton. He is a father giving instructions to a son he knows he will soon leave behind. He is a commander sending his troops into battle. In every case, Paul is passing on to Timothy what really matters. Taught by Paul Hamline and Mike Meadors.

Why Johnny Can’t Sing | Room A202/204 | Beginning September 9th
Perhaps some may remember the so-called ‘worship wars’ of the 90s. Has the war ended? In the minds of many a congregant, the answer is no. In any given congregation there is little to no consensus when it comes to music in the church. Simultaneously, there are continuous calls for older and newer songs, faster/slower, higher/lower, louder/softer, with instruments/without. So how does one wade through this tangled debate? How do we as believers distinguish preference versus biblical conviction? And where do we even begin? This is the purpose of an upcoming six-week equipping hour course, beginning Sunday, September 9th, and running through October 14th. Over these consecutive Sundays, our goal will be to lay the biblical framework for corporate, Lord’s Day worship and, having done so, proceed to examine specific questions and concerns as they relate to musical styles and selections in the local church of God. Led by Keith Phillips.
