Sunday Classes 10:00 am
We strive to provide a variety of classes, so there is something for everyone.
We offer several adult classes each quarter, including Essential Christianity (eC). This would be a great place for you to start if you are new here.
eC introduces SWBIBLE Church and the essentials of Christianity to you.
Children are divided by age or grade and assigned to amazing teachers who are enthusiastic about teaching God's Word to kids with an age appropriate lesson.
December 10-February 25*
*December 3 we will have a church-wide Next Step meeting in the Auditorium. Sunday Classes will not meet on December 17 & 24.
eC - Essential Christianity
Pastor Scott Gilchrist / Room 221
Human nature tends to find the unknown pretty scary—or maybe just intimidating. We wanted to have a comfortable place where you can ask those questions about Christianity that you’ve been holding back. No judgement, no “holier than thou”, just respect, and refreshingly clear and honest answers staight from God’s Word. Pastor Scott leads this class every quarter and you are welcome any time. This is the place to learn more about Christianity and about us here at SWBIBLE. Need a little more motivation? We don’t just have hot coffee—we also serve delectable treats. Okay, so we’ll see you there!
Teachings About Salvation
Pastor Carl Stubblefield / Room 222
Salvation is central to the message of the Bible. From Genesis 3 through Revelation 22, the drama of it unfolds in the pages of God’s Book. This class investigates various aspects of our deliverance by examining key passages and terms that develop this great section of Christian theology.
Terms covered: Justification, Propitiation, Redemption, Regeneration, Sanctification, Glorification, Messiah/Christ, Vicarious/Substitutionary, Calling, Predestination, Conviction, Repentance, Faith, Grace, Forgiveness, Conversion, Calvinism, Arminianism, Reconciliation, Atonement, Imputation, Elect, Ransom, Adoption, Rebirth/Born Again, Renewal, Consecrate, Saint, Confession, Lordship, Eternal Security, Perseverance, Assurance.
The Simplicity of the Spirit-Filled Life
Jim Morud / Room 223
To many Christians, the “Spirit-filled life” is shrouded in mystery. Is it a special quality of spiritual life to be attained only by “super saints?” Or is it possible for an ordinary Christian to live by His power in everday life? In this course, we will examine the biblical basis for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in every Christian, the meaning and purpose of being filled by the Spirit, the means of remaining filled, and the practical outworking and manifestations of being empowered and controlled by Him. The intent of the course is not to spur the minds of scholars or theologians, but to help the hungry-hearted and to encourage the faint-hearted to live in the victory over sin that Jesus has promised to every believer.
Jim Morud works at PSU with Bridges International, an outreach of CRU on college campuses to foreign students studying in America. He is a writer and the ghost writer for John Corey's life story, Any Ol' Bush Will Do. Jim and his wife Linda live with their four children in Warren, Oregon.
Age of Opporunity
Parenting Through the Teen Years
Pete Smith / Room 224
How is parenting teens either the same or different from the early years? Are you scared, excited but uncertain, cynical, hopeful...? This class will equip you to navigate the teen years with God’s truth which will free you from the cynicism of our culture, and prepare your kids for life on their own.
Young Adults (ages 18-24)
On a typical Sunday morning, the majority of our young adults are spread throughout the church building serving the body of Christ in many different capacities. This quarter we are attending adult Sunday school classes. Come join us!
