Welcome to the College, Careers, and Family Class! We meet every Sunday morning at 9:30am at Calvary Baptist Church, Room 108.
As the name suggests, we are made up of a variety of believers from different walks of life. The class size is roughly 8-10 people and consists of college students (engineering, nursing), newly wed couples with small families, and “veteran” couples with large families (4-7 children).
One thing that makes this class unique is that the members truly care for one another and spend time together outside of class. Whether its a birthday party, sporting event, or “just because”, our group finds excuses to fellowship. In addition, we are quick to help one another with burdens ranging from meals for one another in the face of sickness/recovery or listening and giving godly counsel when difficulties arise.
Concerning the class format, it is an exegetical (verse by verse) study through the various books of the Bible. We have covered books such as Luke, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Hebrews, and the Minor Prophets. Though the class is led by a teacher, the atmosphere is open for questions and contributions from everyone. In order to encourage this, open ended questions are asked throughout the class. To clarify, we do NOT discuss the validity of God’s Word or reinterpret its plain meaning, but rather application and connections to other portions of Scripture.
If you are in need of such a group to help in your spiritual growth, please come join us this Sunday! If you have any further questions, feel free to call or text me at (217) 649-3718.
