Adult Christian Education Classes

  • Marriage Class

It is our natural tendency to seek personal happiness and satisfaction in marriage. We often give our own needs, wants, and goals first priority. But what is God’s design for our marriages?

Pete Veenema will be facilitating a study on Marriage using the book by Christopher Ash Married for God, Making Your Marriage the Best It Can Be.  Christopher Ash turns us away from marriage for ourselves and toward marriage in the service of God. Ash shows us God’s purposes and patterns for every part of the marriage relationship with practical applications for everyday life. By realigning our hopes, expectations, and goals for marriage according to the Bible, we will discover the deep joy and lasting fulfillment that comes from a God-centered marriage. This study is useful for those who are single, thinking of marriage, to those who have been married many years.

  • The Christian Mind

Just as the Christian’s heart and character are to be molded into the image of Christ, so must the Christian’s mind.  The Westminster Confession provides an important and insightful summary of key biblical doctrines and so serves as a useful tool for growing and developing the Christian mind.  This class continues into the spring quarter before transitioning to a series on the Christian Mission.  Join us as together we seek to grow in Christ whether or not you have attended any prior classes in this series.  Pastor Matossian is coordinating this class.

  • The Church Information Class

Have you ever wondered what it means to be a Presbyterian, let alone an Orthodox Presbyterian?  Come join us as we explore what it means to be an Orthodox Presbyterian Church.  We’ll provide an overview of the essentials of the Christian faith before moving on to consider what it means to be a Christian in a Presbyterian context.  Finally, we’ll give some attention to the idea of church and how God ministers his grace to us through the church’s ministry and worship.  This is the class for you if you’re new to Emmanuel, considering membership, or you simply want to gain more understanding of what Christians believe and some of the distinctive views of Presbyterians.  There will be plenty of opportunity for questions.
