Simply stated, the aim of the CBC Adult Equipping Classes is found in Colossians 1:28- "to present every person mature in Christ." Each class is designed to help you grow in scriptural knowledge, godly character, and mission alignment- providing practical tools and personal confidence. As you grow in these three areas, you will be equipped for effective service, both in the body of Christ and to a needy world. A selection of classes (both Bible based and topic based) are offered on a rotating basis over the course of three years.
Class Currently Offered:
PROPHETS, PRIESTS AND KINGS - Teacher: Tim Phillips
The times of the judges were turbulent days in Israel’s history, marked by a continuing cycle of sin, oppression, repentance, and deliverance. In time, the people of Israel decided that they would do better under the leadership of a king, and they arrogantly demanded that God provide them with one. Samuel, God’s anointed prophet and Israel’s last judge, warned the people that they would be getting far more than they bargained for-taxes, forced military service, war, and oppression-but they continued to insist. The Lord finally provided a king in the person of Saul, and Samuel’s warning came to pass. Prophets, Priests, and Kings takes an in-depth look at this historical period beginning with the miraculous birth of Samuel, continuing through Saul’s crowning as Israel’s first king, and concluding with his tragic death. Studies include close-ups of Hannah, David, Jonathan, and others, as well as careful considerations of doctrinal themes, such as “Respecting God’s Anointed” and “Courage”.
Classes meet every Sunday from 9:00 am and 10:00 am. Anyone interested in strengthening their spiritual growth in these areas are welcome to attend.
