Mission and Membership at Immanuel
We meet in different age groups to learn from the Bible. We have five classes: one for adults, one for 11-17s, and three for children covering the junior, infant and preschool age ranges. Please see elsewhere for details of our youth and children's groups. Here's some info about the Adult Sunday School programme...
Resources from our Adult Sunday School
Audio, handouts and transcripts of our Adult Sunday School sessions are included in the Resources section.
The thinking behind Adult Sunday School
We are committed to expository preaching as our primary model of teaching the Bible. This means that we teach our way through books of the Bible, seeking to "expose" what God has to say to us in each successive passage. In this way we hear the voice of God in a distinctive and powerful way, respecting the way in which God ordered the Bible and allowing him to set the agenda in our teaching. We believe that most preaching in church services should be expository.
However, there are are other areas of teaching which are necessary to grow mature disciples of Jesus. It is in our Adult Sunday School class that we seek to address these.
Topics for the Adult Sunday School class
Areas we have covered - or plan to cover - include:
Christianity Explored - a basic introduction to the Christian faith
Our aim at Immanuel?
The doctrine of salvation: Christ's saving work accomplished and applied
A Bible overview
Battles Christian face:the workplace family, marriage, singleness, sexuality, depression, etc.
