Sunday School: Core Essentials
[Click HERE for Fall 2014 class descriptions and registration!]
WHAT IS “CORE ESSENTIALS”?
Core Essentials is our "university-style" adult education model for Sunday School. Much like an academic or seminary setting that uses an elective format, you will be able to choose from a variety of courses relating to Christian life. We want to build a discipleship ministry that offers courses that are relevant to our body, biblically grounded, and theologically diverse.
HOW DOES THIS APPROACH WORK?
Simply choose whichever elective interests you. The goal of this model is to be exposed to many disciplines, so over the span of several years you will have the opportunity to take courses in various areas. The core electives will be offered on a two to three year cycle, so if you are unable to take one during a semester they will be repeated later. A benefit of this rotation is that you will also have the chance to sit under multiple teachers and learn alongside a different group of people for each elective.
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
At the beginning of each semester you will be able to sign up for one 20-week elective or two 10-week electives. You can use the checklist to keep track of your progress through the Core Essential curriculum.
WHAT ABOUT CHILDREN AND STUDENTS?
Children are currently using the Desiring God curriculum and students are going through The Gospel Project. High School and college students have the option of joining our Core Essentials electives or remaining with their ongoing age-group studies.
