Adult Studies

The mission of Adult Education is to offer a variety of learning settings for both the seeker and the follower of Jesus Christ in order to equip believers with resources and fellowship opportunities necessary for Christian maturity. We believe our mission will be accomplished by exploring and studying the Word of God, by instilling and nourishing a deep love for God’s Word, and by providing a foundational understanding of the Christian faith.

  • 9:00 am  Adult Sunday School Class

    On March 3rd the 9:00 am Adult Sunday School class will begin a six-week study of the book You'll Get Through This by pastor and New York Times best-selling author Max Lucado.  The author offers refreshing assurance to anyone in the midst of trials that God will be with them and will help them get through this distress. Using the story of Joseph, Max reminds us that God never promised getting through trials would be quick or painless. Joseph certainly didn’t have an easy time.  He was tossed into a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned, forgotten and dismissed. His Old Testament story in the Bible is there to show us we must trust God to trump evil.

     

    Everyone is welcome; come join us in the Library at 9:00 a.m.  If you would like a copy of the book ($12.00 payable to LPC), or if you would like more information, contact Jim or Marianne Miller.

  • Bible Study Fellowship

    Thursdays, starting on September 13, 2018 - May, 2019


    Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) is an in-depth, interdenominational Bible study that helps people know God and equips them to effectively serve the church throughout the world. In more than 1,000 classes in 39 countries, people of all ages, races and cultures participate in BSF, whether they are discovering God's Word for the first time or have studied the Bible over a lifetime.


    Bible study draws us closer to God and helps us better understand Him, His Word and His love. Through a stronger relationship with God, members have discovered how to build better and stronger relationships with others at home, work, school and in our communities. In the more than 50 years since our founding, hundreds of thousands of men, women and children have participated in BSF. Many have gone on to assume leadership positions in their churches and to serve God in other ministries.
