Classes

We know also that the Son of God has come and given us understanding,
so that we may know him who is true.

1 John 5:20

Classes are a space where you can grow in your knowledge of Jesus, affection for Jesus, and devotion to Jesus. You will be encouraged and challenged as you join with other people to talk about how the scriptures speak into important topics that are relevant to your everyday life. Classes are a great opportunity for you to ask questions, find community, and move closer to Jesus. 

Opportunities 

Sunday School

There is something available for everyone. You will find classes for people of all ages and stages of life from newborn to adult beginning at 10:50, after the Sunday Morning Gathering, and running for about one hour.

Core Classes

Core classes  are intended to provide the foundation for all we think and do here at GBC.  Whether Jesus is new to you or you have been following Him for a long time, core classes are for you. 
Fully Alive
Teacher: Scott Klooster                                                         
Trimester 1
In the Fully Alive class, we are going to focus on two parts of our lives. First part is the internal/personal aspect of our Christian walk. Topics such as devotions, prayer and personal testimony will be discussed. These discussions will lead us into the second part of the course that will focus on the external. The idea revolves around the concept that Christ builds us up, these are ways we can do that, and because of that inward change and joy this is what others may experience externally from your love for Christ.

         Youth Building  - 10:30 AM

20 Questions From God
Teacher: Jim Boerckel                                            
Room #14  - 9:00 AM                      
Trimester 1, 2, 3
Every question God asks in the Scriptures has great meaning:
  • Is that the kind of sacrifice I desire?
  • Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundations?
  • Who do you say that I am?
  • Why are you persecuting me?
Through the 20 questions we will be exploring in this series, we will identify clear priorities the Lord has for us today. As we dig deeper into these 20 engaging Biblical interactions, we will come away enlightened and empowered. People of all ages gather in this class, so you WILL fit in, and our class WILL benefit from you joining the discussion. Hope to see you soon!
