We gather each Sunday morning at 9:00 am for Sunday School.
This time of Bible study and fellowship forms an integral part of our church life together. Our aim is to provide biblically faithful, theologically robust, and practical teaching that encourages you to delight yourself in the Lord and live faithfully to His Word.
If you're a visitor, Sunday School provides an excellent opportunity to get connected to a smaller community within our church.
We currently offer three adult Sunday School classes:
A Study of the Book of Proverbs: A universal definition of the book of Psalms is “The Hymnal of the Bible.” Applying the same reasoning, the book of Proverbs could be defined as “A Teacher’s Guide to Biblical Morality.” Our study group will use the Life Change Series guide in 12 sessions, applying the wisdom of Proverbs to the following selected perspectives of Christian life: Wisdom vs. Folly, God and Man, The Family, Friendship, Sexual Purity, The Blessings of Righteousness, Humility vs. Pride, Hard Work vs. Laziness, Proper Speech, Emotions, Wealth and Poverty, Life and Death. The study guide poses penetrating questions about these topics, and optional applications that are very deep.
This class is taught by Jerry Robertson and meets in the Newton Conference Room.
"The Hole in Our Holiness: Filling the Gap Between Gospel Passion and the Pursuit of Godliness" by Kevin DeYoung: Our overarching theme for WPC’s Spring 2019 Sunday School term is “Discipling” or being made a disciple. “Disciple” means being a pupil or follower or adherent of the doctrine of another; specifically a follower of Christ. To better understand what DeYoung is getting at when he says “Hole in our Holiness”, we have to understand what “holiness" means, which is “the state of being “holy”; “holy" meaning dedicated or devoted to the service of God. Although DeYoung says there may be several reasons people do not pursue “holiness” ranging from a feeling of legalism in “pursuing holiness,” to feeling “unspiritual” if you emphasize “effort" in Christian life, to just being “too hard”; the problem is clear: too few seek to emulate Christ (the goal of a dedicated follower) and too many people don’t care. This is a book for those of us who are ready to take holiness seriously, ready to be more like Jesus, ready to live in light of the grace that produces godliness. This is a book about God’s power to help us grow in personal holiness and to enjoy the process of transformation.
This class is taught by Mark Koch and David Senters and currently meets in the Fellowship Hall.
Stenghtening Your Marriage: In a day and age when the biblical doctrine of marriage has been distorted and cast aside by popular culture (and even by some within the church), Christians need to think carefully and biblically about God’s design for marriage. The purpose of this class is two-fold: first, to explore the biblical teaching on marriage so that we can better understand God’s purpose for it and second, to think through practical ways that we can strengthen our marriage relationships for the glory of God and our delight in the good gift of marriage that He has ordained.
This class is taught by Rev. Chad Watkins and Rev. Knox Whitemeets in Classroom 3 (the classroom next to the water fountain).
