SUNDAY SCHOOL
 
 
ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS 
EVERY SUNDAY @ 9:15am | Brother Robert Sapp
 
The Adult Sunday School Class is a Spirit led, in depth study of the Bible. We believe that it is important to study God’s word because it strengthens our relationship with Him.

A message from Robert Sapp, our Sunday School Teacher: 

You may be asking yourself ‘why have Sunday School at all? It seems so archaic.’ I believe it is important to have a study of The Word, for  the more we study,  the stronger our relationship is to God. In the 1970’s, a study in a northern city discovered that when attendance to Sunday School was up, the crime rate in that city was down. And the reverse was also true. When Sunday School attendance was low, the crime rate was high. But that was 50 years ago, so is Sunday School still relevant? The Bible commands us to “study and show thyself approved” (2 Timothy 2:15). Attending our Sunday School class is a great method of furthering your understanding of God’s Word. 

If you still find yourself asking ‘Why Sunday School’, think back on a time when you had a question while listening to the preacher on a Sunday morning and you had a question, or needed further clarification on the topic being preached. But you didn’t want to interrupt him to ask, so your question went unanswered. Sunday School is a more study based setting, so questions are more than welcome! We will dig deep into The Word, and discuss topics in class because that is how we learn! If you are looking for a deeper understanding of God’s word, come join us on Sunday mornings at 9:15am!

Class Set Up: 

Perhaps a better title to this class is Sunday Morning Bible Study, because that is exactly what we do. We study the Bible. Little to no commentary is used in the development of the Study Guides that are used in class. We use the King James Version (KJV) primarily, as well as the North American Standard Bible (NASB), New English Translation (NET), and the Complete Jewish Bible to study different Biblical topics, or entire books verse by verse. Depending on the topic, we may also look at Biblical historical documents (Josephus or others) as well as Biblical archaeology to clarify or deepen the understanding of the text.

 

The study guides are written utilizing the KJV, and each verse is prayerfully studied and discussed. Some Sunday mornings we may get through one verse, other Sunday’s we may get through several verses. It recently took nearly two years to study the book of Revelation and when we began our study of the Passion Week (the week prior to the Crucifixion) it took a year for that study to conclude. We do not get in a hurry; we allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us through the scriptures.
