Adult Sunday School

Here is the schedule and description of upcoming classes:

October 22 – “With All Your Heart” dvd six week class begins

“With all Your Heart” dvd series by Ray Vander Laan is filmed on location in Israel and Egypt. Do you remember where your blessing comes from? In Exodus, God warned Israel to remember him when they left the dry desert and reached the fertile fields of the Promised Land. In this class you’ll     discover how quickly they forgot God and began to rely on themselves. Find out what it means to remember the Lord in your own life on this one-of-a-kind spiritual pilgrimage. This class will be led by Teri Eriksen in rm 10.

October 29 – “Searching for Happiness” five week class begins

“Searching for Happiness”, based on a book by the same name by Martin Thielen, will seek to debunk the myth that the key to happiness is being rich, successful and beautiful. Using psychological research and scripture, the class will explore ten practices that can lead to a fuller life, including cultivating optimism, focusing on the present and nurturing relationships. This class will be led by Kathi Bubb in rm 5.
