Sunday Morning Classes

Sunday Morning Classes

CGS is a deliberately thoughtful community of believers, endeavoring to bear witness to the Real Jesus. One of the ways we further this desire is by meeting together on Sunday mornings at 9:30 before our worship hour begins, to study God’s Truth together. During these gatherings, our goals are to understand Scripture more clearly, for the purpose of applying it to our own daily lives more faithfully.

We tackle Life in all of its manifestations in these gatherings, because we believe Scripture is intended to inform our approach to every aspect of the world’s brokenness: Family. Vocation. Marriage. Divorce. Singleness. Sexuality. Culture. Gender. Pain and Suffering. Justice. Despair. Joy.

Come join us for education, for friendship, for discussion, for encouragement, and for perspective on living in Christian relationship with each other in service of Christ’s purposes in our world. Come learn how to apply the teachings of the Real Jesus to the problems of Real People who are confronting the daily realities of the Real World!

August 2022 Offerings

The following Sunday Morning Classes will run August 7, 14, 21, and 28.

OPEN CLASS FORMATS:

Walking with God Through Pain and Suffering. Bob Burns.  S212. Suffering does not automatically lead to growth and good outcomes. Continuing our conversation from the Combined SMC, we will discuss Scriptural and relational aspects of preparation for both mind and heart when confronted with the difficulties of life.

How Jesus Prays for Us.  Chris & Jenny Garrett.  S203-204. Hebrews 7:25 says that Jesus “lives to make intercession” for his people. So, how is Jesus praying for you? John 17 begins to provide insights answering this question. Starting with this passage, Jenny and Chris will guide the class in an interactive exploration of this question from the whole of Scriptures.

Repeat the Sounding Joy.  Matt McClure.  S202. Isaac Watts is universally recognized as one of the greatest English-language hymn writers. He practically invented the hymn form as we know it today. His texts are among the most familiar hymns we sing, including When I Survey the Wondrous Cross and Joy to the World. Matt will introduce the Scriptural background and lead a group reflection on many of his most widely sung texts.

All classes meet starting at 9:30am.
