Abundant Life Class
Room 227, Christian Education Building
For nearly two decades, this dialogue oriented class has reached out to adults possessing robust and evolving faith who have interest in how Jesus’ promise (Jn. 10:10) of “abundant life” may apply not only for themselves but for all of God’s creation. Scripture, Reformed theology, church history, and Presbyterian (PCUSA) teaching combine to challenge class participants to seek new and life-transforming ways to invest their faith “inwardly” and “outwardly.” While a faith is personal, it should never be private! This class seeks members who “get” and wish to explore further the pithy distillation of the gospel message that it is about “comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable.” The class is led by Dr. Sid Gates, an ordained Presbyterian minister and licensed marriage and family therapist. Intermittent guest presenters will augment insight regarding needed faith-application for various societal needs.
Room 230, Christian Education Building
This group of disciples is for adults of all ages and has periodic social gatherings throughout the year. Class leader Woody Belangia is devoted to leading class members to deepen their understanding of God's Word by
deepening one's love of God and neighbor (and vice-versa). The class is going through a series called "Jesus Driven", trying to interpret the lordship of
Jesus through the lens of Paul and John (and vice-versa). Class leader Woody Belangia teaches philosophy at Augusta State University and is proficient in ancient languages.
