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.

    Acknowledging God Bible Study

    Most of us are familiar with the child's mealtime prayer, "God is great, God is good, let us thank him for our food." In that prayer we note that God is indeed great. That greatness is seen again and again in the studies of this quarter. 

    This quarters' collection of Bible studies focuses on ways God's people have acknowledged the greatness of God. It begins with guidance for following God. At Easter, the focus turns to ways Jesus provides a channel for giving God glory and honor. The quarter concludes with a look at different times and ways people praise God. 

    Join us in the conference room for our 8:15 a.m. study Sunday morning!"- led by Clarence Bauman

  • Adult Sunday School Class

    Sunday, 9:00 - 10:00 a.m., September - June, Library

    On Sunday, April 15, the 9:00 a.m. Adult Sunday School class will begin a six-week study of The Jesus I Never Knew by Phillip Yancey that includes video presentations on the major topics of the book.

    An old adage says, "God created man in His own image, and man has been returning the favor ever since." Philip Yancey realized that despite a lifetime attending Sunday school, topped off by a Bible college education, he really had no idea who Jesus was. In fact, he found himself further and further removed from the person of Jesus, distracted instead by flannel-graph figures and intellectual inspection. In The Jesus I Never Knew, Yancey explores the life of Jesus, as he explains, "from below, to grasp as best I can what it must have been like to observe in person the extraordinary events unfolding in Galilee and Judea" as Jesus traveled and taught. Yancey examines three fundamental questions: who Jesus was, why he came, and what he left behind. Step by step, scene by scene, Yancey probes the culture into which Jesus was born and grew to adulthood; his character and mission; his teachings and miracles; his legacy--not just as history has told it, but as Jesus intended it to be.

    We will use The Jesus I Never Knew Participant's Guide: Six Sessions on the Life of Christ (Groupware Small Group Edition) to guide our discussion of the videos. 

    If you would like us to order a copy of the book ($7.00 payable to LPC), or if you need more information, please contact Jim or Marianne Miller.

    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.
