FALL 2022 Christian Education Sheet

 

Sunday Morning

RLC values Christian education, for adults and children, and considers it to be an essential part of a healthy equipping ministry. We offer Sunday School opportunities for adults and children from 9:30-10:30 am, September through May. Occasionally, we offer summer Bible study opportunities. 


Adult Christian Education

Training in Righteousness

First and Second Timothy are two of the most beloved and controversial of Paul’s letters, giving us a great opportunity to grow in our faith through a discussion-based study of these two letters. How to pray for our leaders, identifying bad doctrine, what to wear in church, who should serve in church, the love of Christ, baptism, the Word, and even the end times it’s all here in Paul’s letters to a beginning pastor! Among all of this, it was Paul’s desire to instruct and encourage young Timothy to be grounded in the Gospel, setting a good example for all believers in his Gospel ministry.

Join us on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30 am in the Fellowship Hall, starting September 18, as we walk with Paul and Timothy in the life saving, life transforming, Gospel ministry of Jesus! This class will be team led by Pastors Jonathan and Zach.

David and the Psalms

David (of the Old Testament) and the Psalms are forever linked. In this 10-week class, we will explore the life of David, whether boy or King, as well as the Psalms. Scholars are divided about how many of the Psalms David wrote but he wrote at least 46 of them - sometimes laments or of praise.

David -Shepherd, Warrior, King, Husband, and Father- he certainly had many roles in his life. The Psalms - written over a span of many years, speak of his personal triumphs and sometimes tragedies, are intricately linked with his life, his triumphs and tragedies. We'll explore the life of David, as well as reading some wonderful psalms and how they applied to the writer as well as to our lives today.

Bring a Bible with an Old Testament to class. There is no cost, no book to buy, but please register with the church (919-851-7248,  ). We will meet in Room 151, Family Life Center, from 9:30-10:30 am, starting on Sunday, September 18. Led by Mindy Stephani. Hope you will join us!

God gives His Word to instruct, guide, and bless our lives. The Scripture lessons in worship offer a menu every week to build up the people of God in faith and hope. We will study the lessons for the following Sunday, and as we do, we expect that this Word will enrich and edify our community prayer, faith, and servant life in Christ.

We will study the coming Sunday Scripture lessons, confident that the Spirit will be:

  • Enhancing and enriching our Sunday worship life!
  • Letting God's Word edify daily and Sunday faith life!
  • Connecting the themes of the four lessons into a tapestry!
  • Listening to the Spirit of God at work in Word and one another!
  • Building our community life together!

The Thread

Dates: Starting September 7
Time: 6:30-7:30 pm
Place: Room 151, Family Life Center
Leader: Pastor Jonathan Blanke

The Holy Scriptures are rich and varied in content. Not only do we have two testaments (both Old and New), but the people God used to bring us the Word used poems, songs, historical narrative, letters, and parables to do so. What is the one common thread that holds this rich tapestry together? What difference will tracing this thread throughout the Scriptures make—not only for our understanding of God’s Word but our Spirit-enabled efforts to live it out?

Join us as we look at various Old and New Testament passages where the most prominent themes of the Scriptures as a whole are in evidence. Edified by the message God brings us there, we will see how the Holy Spirit uses these messages in our worship to bless us, enabling us to care for one another and serve our community. We will meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:30 pm in Room 151, Family Life Center, beginning September 7. Led by Pastor Jonathan Blanke. Hope you can join us!
