April - June 2017
We encourage you to attend classes on Sunday morning. Click on a class below to expand it to see a description of the group the class is designed for, and the current topic.
Young Adults/Professional/College Class - Room S203
We believe today’s young adults, people in their 20s-30s, are more open to being challenged than the church is sometimes willing to risk. If you are seeking to grow in your relationship with God and others – and not afraid to ask hard questions and confront inconvenient truths – this community is for you.
Topic: Life of Christ
Teacher: Nathan Harless
Jesus wrote no autobiography or writings. He committed himself and his teaching simply to the hearts and memories of the men who knew and loved him. And they did not fail him. The four books we call the Gospels are our primary source of information about the life and works that have changed the world. We may wish the story had been told with greater fullness and detail, but it has given Christ to every age since his death. Join this class as they explore the life of Christ in the Gospels.
Young Marrieds & Young Families Class - Room S201/202
Whether you’re still picking the rice out of your hair or are already driving that minivan you swore you’d never own, navigating family life requires lots of support and encouragement. Classes and discussion start with scripture and always circle around to applications specific to marriage and family. Then, there’s the friendships, understanding and practical help you’ll need when things get tough.
Topic: The Art of Leadership, Lessons in Spiritual Formation
Teacher: Ronald Woods
This class will focus on the most difficult leadership challenge - Self Leadership. Using the lessons taught by Jesus the class will cover a biblical worldview of: Attitude, The Mind, Values, Trust, Influence, Expectations, Communication and Wisdom.
Spiritually Single Class - Room S204
Sometimes, churches can seem like they are exclusively designed for couples or families. This group is different. It is composed of folks who find themselves searching, and on a spiritual level, having to go it alone. When you walk through our door, though, you discover that there are others willing to make that journey with you. If you are looking for a group that is open and honest about life, welcome home.
Topic: Lessons from the Prison Letters
Teacher: Steve Owens and Jon Perry
This class will engage in a study of the writings of Paul in the New Testament Epistles of Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Philemon.
SonLight Class - Room S205
If you are the kind of person who doesn’t mind questioning your own conclusions, confronting your own perspectives and intentionally exposing yourself to diverse opinions, the Sonlight class is for you. Our children are mostly raised and out of the house (mostly), so we enjoy spending time together both in and out of class. Stop by and visit us. You’ll find spirited but respectful discussion. And maybe make some new friends.
Topic: A Journey of Generations
Teachers: James Miller and Glen Laird
The Sonlight class will engage in a discussion of the future of the church. To accomplish this, we will review where the church, religion and America is today, and take a look at how we got here
Friendship Class - Room S206
Do you remember where you were when Sputnik circled the planet? How about rotary telephones? Or when you had to get up and walk across the room to change the channel on the TV? Those who attend the Friendship Class remember. But we welcome anyone who wants to study God’s Word in an accepting atmosphere and make rich, meaningful friendships. After all, that’s the name of our group!
Topic: I Thessalonians
Teacher: Lee Potts
Over a span of three weeks, Paul preached the gospel in the city of Thessalonica until a riot forced his departure. A few months later, he would send Timothy to encourage the fledging church there. Timothy later rejoined Paul in Corinth and informed him the faith and love of the Thessalonians. Hearing Timothy’s report, Paul was encouraged to write the church at Thessalonica. In this letter, he encourages new believers to live godly lives in eager anticipation of Christ’s return.
Ladies Class - Room S108
The Ladies class is composed of women studying the scriptures in a systematic, sensible plan that takes them through every book in the Bible. Then, they start again. Each series is accompanied by a Study Guide and teaching responsibilities are shared among class members.
The Ladies class will complete a study though the book of Acts and then begin studying the Old Testament book of Genesis.
General Adult Class - Fellowship Hall Room: Fellowship Hall
Come one, come all! We don’t check your ID at the door. You don’t have to pass a basic Bible knowledge quiz to get in. If you’re interested in learning more about the Bible in an open atmosphere which includes both lecture and discussion, this group is for you. You can sit quietly and listen or join in the conversation. Either way, many guests and new members find this a great entry point into Twickenham.
Topic: Life Together: Restoring the Relational Power of Early Christianity
Teacher: Jody Vickery
When we think of restoring New Testament Christianity, we usually think in terms of doctrine (what we believe) or form (how we do things). That’s not bad, but neither is it complete. The early Church exhibited a community dynamic that was radically distinct in first century culture. What might happen if we focused on restoring the relational power of those first Christians?
Twickenham Youth Ministry - Senior High Room: S102, Junior High Room: S104 Fellowship Hall
Teacher: Bass & Kimberley (Senior High), Bellomy & McDonald (Junior High)
Who is Yahweh? In Exodus, God reveals Himself – To Pharaoh, the Egyptians, and the Israelites to be a Redeemer and Lawgiver. Whether through displays of His power or communication of His Law, God’s concern was that the whole world know “I am the LORD.” There is No other God! In this study, we will experience the ground-shaking account of Yahweh redeeming His people, but also recognize the earth-shaking redemption from sin that comes through Jesus Christ and proclaim His freedom to the captives.
