Adult Sunday Morning Classes

The Life of Paul Chris LaFever│ Rowlett Room
Our knowledge of Paul comes predominantly from the historical accounting in the second half of Acts and from his reflections in his writings. At times, we may be left with a superhuman impression of Paul. Using the book of Acts with excerpts from his writings we will have discussions about the humanity of Paul and reflect on the lessons we can learn from his life. Class will be structured with content provided to meditate on during the week to better facilitate discussion in the classroom on Sunday morning.
 
The Fruit of the Spirit Alan Insell & Carl Collins
Room 221
Have you ever bit into a piece of fruit that was perfectly ripe and tasty? It’s a satisfying experience and a wonderful treat for your taste buds. In contrast, have you ever bit into fruit that had all the appearances of being delicious, yet it was sour, moldy, or dry? Not so good, right? Does your fruit of the Spirit look appetizing? Notice it is “fruit” of the Spirit, not “fruits”. Our fruit of the spirit is one piece with many different characteristics. All believers have the fruit of Spirit available to them, it just takes discipline to achieve!
 
Book of James Brian Johnson │ Auditorium
James is a book that gets right down where we live. One individual said that every time he read the book of James, he had the uneasy feeling that James had been reading his mail. The book of James looks a bit like the Old Testament book of Proverbs dressed up in New Testament clothes. Its consistent focus on practical action in the life of faith is reminiscent of the Wisdom Literature in the Old Testament, encouraging God’s people to act like God’s people. The pages of James are filled with direct commands to pursue a life of holiness. He makes no excuses for those who do not measure up. In the mind of this early church leader, Christians evidence their faith by walking in certain ways and not others. For James, a faith that does not produce real life change is a faith that is worthless. The practicality of this new testament book makes it a great choice for our study!
 
 New Christian Class Adam Wilson & Mark Sloan │ Room 240 (Hispanic Classroom)
So now that I am a Christian what’s next? What do I need to learn to truly become a disciple of Jesus Christ? What do I need to know about the unique nature of the Lord’s church? Why do we worship the way we do? These, and other questions, will be examined in this class which is designed for those who have recently been baptized or who have recently placed membership here at West End. The class will cover basics in the Bible that will help the student understand more about the Lord’s church and how to live the Christian life.
 
 The Shadow of the Cross │ Room 204
(Single Again Ladies)
This is a class for women who are single again through divorce or death. Walk with the Savior from Gethsemane to Golgotha and recognize anew the power that radiates from the shadow of the cross, as you focus on the foundation of our hope as Christians – the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus

 

Adult Wednesday Evening Classes

Book of 1 & 2 Samuel Jeremy Weekley │ Room 221
In this period of transition from Judges to Kings we find an Israelite nation struggling with their identity. They want to be God’s people, but they also want to be like the nations around them. The books of 1 & 2 Samuel share the accounts of the kingships of Saul and David. As a nation rises to prominence we find struggles in leadership, family, and faithfulness. During this time the Israelites face foreign enemies, but also battle enemies from within. Through it all God is building a nation that will be His instrument.

 

The Domino Effect Mark Newby & James Bellamy│ Room 217
What do dominos have to do with life changing decisions? More than you might think. However, choosing the first domino is crucial. If you base every decision on the Word of God, then one good decision will lead to the next; it’s the domino effect. God has blessed you with the freedom of choice. How are you making your choices?

 

The Intertestamental Period David Roland │ Auditorium
This 400 year period between the close of the Old Testament and the beginning of the New Testament saw a number of significant changes: the people had greatly multiplied and were now dwelling together in the same land…rather than being under Persian rule, they were now under Roman rule with an Edomite king exercising jurisdiction over them. A number of incredible changes had taken place — religious, political, cultural and civil. After God delivered His final message through the prophet Malachi, He paused in His communications through men for some four hundred years. What happened during that span of time?

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

West End Youth Group Classes

SUNDAY MORNING
Expecting the Unexpected Billy & Holly Bearden Lighthouse  
Girls MS & HS
The gospels are full of stories about Jesus’ interactions with everyday people. He gave hope to the poor, the sick, and the disabled. Jesus also interacted with several women, giving them purpose, status, and validly that they had not seen up to that point. He paved the way for the loving, yet pure brother/sister relationships in the church today. Together we will explore some of those encounters.
Boys to Men Various Teachers Lighthouse   HS & MS Boys
What does it look like to be a man of God? What are the steps one needs to take to become a man after God’s own hearts? What does God expect of me? Together we will look at attributes that men of God should obtain and always be striving to have!

 

WEDNESDAY NIGHT

W.W.J.D. Billy Bearden │ Lighthouse │  Middle and High School

We will be looking at our pop culture items today, such as; snapchat, Instagram, tv, movies, music, etc. and asking the question, “What would Jesus do?”
