"For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God." — 2 Cor. 4:15

Come study with us during the 9:30 a.m. Sunday service, upstairs in Room 204.

Our current series is on Heaven and Hell.

Adult Bible Study is happy to announce that we are continuing our study study of Heaven and Hell starting May 7th.

So many live their lives as if neither Heaven nor Hell exist but the Scriptures clearly teach that we live after death and that there is an ultimate destiny for each man, woman, and child.

In this spring series, Alan Gomes will teach us what the Scriptures say about heaven and hell. He will also address some of the main myths, misconceptions, and objections to the biblical position. Last fall, Dr. Gomes focused on heaven and this spring will be teaching what God’s word says about Hell:

What doest the Bible mean by “hell”?

What is hell like?  Is it a real place with real flames?

Does eternal punishment really fit the crime?

How can a God of love send people to an eternal hell?

The class may also pick from list of topics, including such questions as: does purgatory exist?  Will everybody be saved in the end? Will God give those who rejected him a second chance in the afterlife? Did Jesus descend into hell?  Will we grieve, in the eternal state, over our unsaved loved ones?

In Adult Bible Study (ABS), the Word of God is read, taught, and discussed so that we can grow in the discipline and instruction of our Lord.  We meet on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. in Room 204 upstairs.  We invite you to come study with us!

Adult Bible Study strives to build up the body of Christ by encouraging continual growth in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Open to adults of all ages, we get to know one another, study the word together, discuss the implications of what we learn and seek to encourage one another as disciples of Jesus.

We study through scripture and through the occasional book that biblically cover topics  relevant to the people of Grace.  Some of the teaching series we have done in the past are:

  • Our current series: Joshua
  • Heaven & Hell: Doctrine of Heaven
  • Exodus: Glory Mercy Deliverance
  • Genesis 1-11
  • The Gospel and the End of Time: 1&2 Thessalonians
  • Abraham
  • Joseph
  • The Beatitudes
  • 1, 2, 3 John
  • James
  • David
  • Song of Solomon
  • Cults
  • Ezra and Nehemiah
  • 1 and 2 Peter
  • Messianic Prophecy
  • Ruth
  • The Treasure Principle
  • Peacekeepers
  • Changing Hearts, Changing Minds
  • The Deep Things of God: How the Trinity Changes Everything

And of course, our previous summer series:

  • Poetic Voices II: Psalms of the Sons of Korah
  • Poetic Voices – Selected Psalms
  • Melodic Voices – Hymns
  • Pathetic Voices – Losers of the Bible
  • Apostolic Voices – Lives of the apostles
  • Prophetic Voices – Minor Prophets survey
  • Parabolic Voices – selected parables
  • Proverbial Voices – selected proverbs
  • Missional Voices – Grace missions and missionaries

Classes are taught by a cadre of teachers from a variety of backgrounds:

  • Brian O’Herin – Linguist
  • Ben Baeder – Journalist
  • Tandre Williams – Petroleum Engineer
  • Tim Stranske – Associate Professor of Education/ Elder
  • Joe Henderson – Assistant Professor, Torrey Honors
  • Eric Twisselman – Teacher/ Elder
  • Dave McMillen – Business Development Manager/ Elder

We meet at 9:30 a.m. during second service.

We meet at this time to give the parents of Middle and High School age kids an opportunity to enrich their walk while their kids are at Youth Group. The Elders strongly encourage families to worship together with their children as part of the greater Grace community so that these young men and women feel they have a place at Grace outside of youth ministry.
