Our Sunday School, called School of Discipleship, is a time of growing in the knowledge and grace of the Lord for the whole family. During the school year months we meet from 10:15 to 11:00 a.m. in Calvin Hall. Classes will resume on Sunday, September 10.
On September 3, come to an Open House for all the children’s and youth classes: Meet the teachers, find your classroom, and get ready for the start of a new semester!

CLASSES FOR ADULTS: Four Electives
One Body, Many Members
Romans 12:5 says “though we are many, we are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another.” Rev. Jack Smith will be leading a New Members class. The class will be for those who are considering joining Redeemer, those who have joined the church in the last two years, or those who have been here since the beginning. We will cover our history, church government, theology, service, and worship. It is important to know why we do what we do, as the covenant people of God. If you have questions you’ve always wanted to ask, but haven’t, this will provide an opportunity to discuss those questions.
Two Reformation Giants—Martin Luther & John Calvin
Rev. Marcus Serven will be leading a class in historical theology, examining the lives and beliefs of two of the most important Protestant Reformers—Martin Luther (1483-1546) and John Calvin (1509-1564). These two giants of the Reformation era have significantly shaped Christian doctrines down to the present day. If you want to better understand the practices, peculiarities, and problems of the modern church, then you must become familiar with the theology of Luther and Calvin. Class sessions will consist of lectures, a look at the writings of these two men, and student interaction. The course will not only enhance our understanding of God’s providential work during the Reformation, but it will give us a better understanding of the life-changing theology of two Reformation giants.
Rev. Eric Landry will lead a class designed to prepare men and women for leadership functions within the church. It will focus on the doctrinal and Scriptural foundations necessary to serve in official leadership capacities. There will be required reading and homework assignments; class time will be spent discussing work done during the previous week. This calls is required for those men who may be interested in serving as elders or deacons (officer training will begin in January 2018); it is also open to other men and women who may want to lead small groups, men’s ministry, women’s ministry, youth, and children’s ministry.
The Letter to the Romans
Ruling Elder Bob Phillips will continue teaching Paul’s letter to the Romans. Last semester, the glories of God’s grace in free justification were unfolded—verse by verse—in the first nine chapters. This semester, after a survey review for new students, and to contextualize the rest of the book, Bob will pick up with Chapter 10, showing how divine sovereignty and human responsibility are perfectly compatible, and then on to Chapter 11, which proclaims a grand future for ethnic Israel. The rest of the book, Chapters 12-16, presents Paul’s ethical imperatives for the justified Christian. Come join us!
