We value equipping disciples. We believe that we equip one another to grow in maturity as members of Christ’s church through teaching, preaching, small groups, service and fellowship. In these things we seek to emulate Christ’s love in concrete actions through the knowledge of God and service to His world. We desire to apply God’s truth in our daily lives. Sunday School classes are places for sharing lives, asking questions and learning. It is a place where visitors can get to know others in the church and feel included.
Whether you are married, single, new parents or empty-nesters Sunday School has a place for you. Classes are designed to include a mix of adult ages so we can learn from each other and share life’s experiences with each other. Sometimes a class specifically geared to a certain age group or women or men will be offered.
Several class electives covering different topics are offered each quarter. Classes study Bible books, doctrinal themes, practical Christian living, church and culture, Christian history, men’s and women’s topics, and more.
Electives are taught in a variety of formats, including lecture, discussion, and guided readings or video presentations. Classes leaders are drawn from among church pastors, elders and trained knowledgeable church members.
If you are new to COG you might consider attending the Communicants class which is offered certain quarters throughout the year and taught by senior pastor Herb Ruby and/or an elder. The Communicants Class is for those seeking to learn more about our church; or interested in becoming a member; or as a refresher class. This class is designed to communicate to newcomers our essential beliefs, our distinctive doctrines and our philosophy of ministry. It also serves as an opportunity to get to know other newcomers and many church leaders.
Classes begin at 9:15 am each Sunday. Most adult classes meet in the Adult Annex.
