Equipping Hour

Spring 2024 Rotation

On Sunday mornings we have several opportunities to engage with others in fellowship. One of those outlets is though  equipping classes that enable smaller groups to learn together and apply God’s Word to different aspects of our lives. The courses are 11 weeks long and change seasonally. If you miss one that you desire to attend, don't worry, most will be offered again at a later date! 

9:00 AM | Old Testament | Pastor George
This course will be the second of two parts in which we will survey the Old Testament, examining key themes and seeing how each book has its place in the unfolding of God’s story of redemption.

9:00 AM | Fundamentals of the Faith | Mike Marion & David Wang 
Fundamentals of the Faith is a wonderful program produced by Grace Community Church. It provides new believers with a rock-solid theological foundation, helps more mature Christians sharpen their understanding of key doctrines, and equips all believers for evangelism and discipleship. The program fosters true unity based on the shared understanding of God's truth. A correct understanding of Biblical doctrines helps each of us to worship God rightly and to give Him the most glory. We are looking forward to studying the Word with you!

11:00 AM | Everyday Living | Mark Hardy & Ryan Hougham
As believers, we are called to glorify God in everything we do, being those who “seek the things above” (Col 3:1). And yet, our everyday lives are lived here on this earth, with all sorts of responsibilities and concerns to which we must attend. This class is designed to equip us to apply Biblical principles and heavenly priorities to practical living. We will explore how to honor God in time management, goal-setting, work, finances, diet and exercise, recreation, entertainment, and other practical issues of life. Doing so will help us to rightly see all areas of our lives as opportunities to “walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects”. (Col 1:10)

11:00 AM | Discovering Grace | Brian Liebich
This course serves as an introduction to Grace Bible Church for those who are interested in becoming members or simply want to learn more about our church. It will cover the doctrinal statement of GBC as well as our vision of each person engaging in discipleship and helping another follow Jesus better. We will cover what discipleship is and how you can engage in discipleship practically at Grace Bible Church.

11:00 AM | Parenting: The Early Years |  CR Messer & Toly Molitvenik
Psalm 127 joyfully declares that "children are a gift of the Lord." In this class, we will look intently at God's high calling to parents, with a focus on building a foundation in the early years (ages 0-5). We will look to understand and apply the Scripture as we examine our priorities, goals, and challenges as parents. And we will talk about the God-given roles and responsibilities we have toward our children as we seek to "bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord" (Eph. 6:4). All are welcome, though space is limited and priority will be given to parents who currently have at least one child age 5 or below. Married couples are encouraged to take the course together, if possible.
