One of the ministries we believe we can utilize to further accomplish our mission of making disciples is our adult Sunday school ministry – ABC University.
3 elective classes are offered throughout the year for young adults (high school graduates) through seniors. Class topics vary throughout the year, however, are grounded in biblical Truth and gospel-centered.
Current ABC University Classes offered:
- My Circle – taught by Pastor Brad
What would it look like if every follower of Christ in a local congregation realized that God has placed them in the lives they live in, around the people they live with, for a purpose?
What would it look like if Christ followers also realized that purpose was to give those same people an opportunity to see the Gospel in action, to lovingly proclaim its message and give them a chance to respond?
The heart behind the My Circle Initiative is to help equip the people of God to participate in God’s redemptive mission within the context of their daily lives and relationships, by helping them understand how to:
1. Identify the network of relationships in the midst of which God has placed them; this is their circle.
2. Meaningfully engage their circle through prayer and a tangible Gospel presence.
3. Share their grace story as well as proclaim the Gospel to the people in their circle.
Whether a person is a new believer or a life-long follower, My Circle will help equip them by giving practical ways to live a life of mission and understand the theology behind it, all within an ongoing framework of accountability, encouragement and prayer. Participants will have their hearts moved, minds expanded and wills challenged to not be satisfied with missional inactivity.
