Church School Classes

ADULT CHURCH SCHOOL CLASSES

This October marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his 95 theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg. This event has become the traditional point to mark the start of the Reformation, a movement that would result in the recovery of the Gospel out of the darkness of the Middle Ages. It seems, therefore, appropriate for our adult church school classes, this fall, to focus on the Reformation and particularly on the recovery of the light of the Gospel. We will offer two classes, one at each building.

Old Stone:  Church History Survey A.D. 1500-1620

– This video series by Dr. W. Robert Godfrey explains how the events of the sixteenth century have profoundly shaped our world. It brings to life the stories of those who dedicated their lives to proclaiming the truth of God’s Word in the Reformation.

Fifth Avenue:  Galatians

– This class will use a study guide

by Timothy Keller

Martin Luther famously once called Galatians his wife, the epistle to which he wedded himself. He treasured it this dearly because Galatians so clearly proclaims the Gospel message that sinners are saved, not by works of the law, but by grace alone through faith alone on account of Christ alone.
