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.
The classes below will be offered in the fall beginning Sunday, September 10th.
Bible Book Classes
The King and His Glorious Kingdom Are Coming | Joined Heirs | Activity Center
Every day the news seems a bit overwhelming and can even lead one to despair as we watch nations, leaders of nations, and the world seemingly spinning further and further out of control. Chaos and anarchy seem rampant with no hope in sight. This fall, we will be studying the book of Daniel, which presents a very different picture. You are invited to join us as we unfold a picture of a Sovereign King in control of all rulers and nations. This Sovereign King is bringing about a program of redemption for His people and will come again and establish His reign and His nation and kingdom. If your heart has become faint with our current world, come hear a very hope-filled message and learn how you can have an “allotted portion at the end of the age” (Daniel 12:13). Taught by Paul Hamline and Mike Meadors.
Amos | 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.
Is the Reformation Over? | A202/204
Is the Reformation over? Why does the Reformation matter? Martin Luther, John Calvin and other reformers intended for the Reformation to be an ongoing, lasting project, hence the slogan, semper Reformanda, which is translated, “always being reformed” (by the standard of God’s Word). By this, the Reformation is not a movement that looks forward to some distant and uncharted horizon. Rather, it is a continual, spiritual movement that ardently looks back to the Bible. To be sure, much has changed over the past 500 years, from the time that a neurotic monk nailed his 95 theses to the doors of the Wittenberg Church. Still, the Bible Church of Little Rock would be well served to rediscover many of the historical, biblical, and theological hallmarks that defined the 16th century Protestant Reformation. This 12-week study will thus seek to demonstrate why the reformation, indeed, matters and how reformed thought and practice can, likewise, renew and reinvigorate our lives, our homes, our vocations, our nation, our church, and, most importantly, our worship. Taught by Jimmy Fetterly, James Henrich, Keith Phillips, & Benny Riley. Download a schedule of classes here.
Building Families: The Heart of Discipleship | A206
This class will explore discipleship biblically and many implications of how we can guide our families. It will practically teach and demonstrate God’s truth to our loved ones. In addition, this class will give us tools we can use to influence those closest to us, which can help them to pursue Christ with passion and purpose. Paul said in Philippians 4:9, “The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things and the God of all peace will be with you.” Taught by Kent Kolstad and Frank Turk.
