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.

  • Adult Sunday School Class

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

    On Sunday, September 10th, the Adult Sunday School class began a six-week study of John Ortberg’s book, All the Places to Go: How Will You Know? Using the description of the church in Philadelphia from Revelation 3:7-13, Ortberg concludes that rarely in the Bible does God command someone to stay. He opens a door, and then He invites us to walk through it―into the unknown. In this six-session DVD study, bestselling author John Ortberg opens our eyes to the countless open doors God places before us every day, teaching us how to recognize them and giving us the encouragement to step out in faith and embrace all of the extraordinary opportunities that await.

    Everyone is welcome; come join us in the Library at 9:00 a.m. If you would like a copy of the book ($10.00 payable to LPC), or if you would like more information, contact Jim or Marianne Miller.

  • Men's Bible Study - Sermon on the Mount

    Monday, 9:00-10:30 a.m. (Library)

    Starts September 11

    Led by Carl Braun

    What can the Beatitudes teach us about Christianity, our approach to Scripture and righteous living?  Is it relevant to our modern age and society as it exists today?

    Christ began his discipleship teaching with an exposition of the Beatitudes as the foundation to his Sermon on the Mount.  His followers were to carry on His work after His death, resurrection and ascension as we are called to do as “salt and light” and He needed to insure their firm grounding in the Christian Character and their preparation for the reaction of the world to His teaching.

    Please join us for t study of the Beatitudes, based on the teaching of Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones; noted Welsh preacher and biblical scholar for 30 years at Westminster Abbey.
