ADULT CHURCH SCHOOL CLASSES

How the Gospel Brings Us All the Way Home
Leader: Cliff Glovier, FAB Auditorium

This class will discuss the book How the Gospel Brings Us All the Way Home, a sermon series on Romans chapter 8. Romans 8 sets forth for the Christian no condemnation; the life of freedom and victory; the indwelling of Christ and the Holy Spirit; life in the Spirit and the glorious promise of no separation from God. The format of the class will be a discussion each week on a chapter of the book.
Preparation for each week is easy. First, read the chapter assigned for the week. The chapters are short and easy to read. Second, during the week meditate on the Scripture reference for the chapter. And third, expect we all will “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

A Candle Against the Dark, The Reformed Presbyterian Church and Slavery: Bob Copeland – OSB

Recent events show that the U.S. has not yet erased the legacy of slavery.  Long before most Americans saw any problem with it, Reformed Presbyterians took an uncompromising and unpopular stand against Slavery and its evil twin, Racism.  This course explores the biblical and other reasoning behind RP actions, and traces the anti-slavery activism of Covenanters from the Colonial period through the stages of the Abolitionist movement, the Underground Rail Road, and the Civil War.  It draws on extensive research by Dr. D. Ray Wilcox and Dr. Robert Copeland, both of Geneva College.
