Adult Class Directory—Summer & Fall 2020

Adult Quarterly Class

With Earl Evans, Doug Haydon, Ross Howe, John Nosworthy, Bob Warnick
Room 104F | 10am

The class leadership rotates on a weekly basis. This class studies the Bible in-depth through the use and guidance of the Adult Sabbath School Quarterly used in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church around the world. The class is inspirational, Christ-centered and encourages lively discussion from all. All ages attend our class; young college students to senior citizens. If you like to just observe or enjoy actively participating, come join us Sabbath morning at 10am.

In the Word

With Jim Kelly, Andrew Knecht, Philip Neal, and Doug Schmidt Room 104B | 10am

This class is a Bible study for those of any age who desire to go where Jesus and the Holy Spirit leads. Each week a class facilitator leads a study that is open to all for comments and learning. The more input from the class the better, as we journey deeper into the rich knowledge of the Bible. This class studies at the pace of the attendees. We have no time line and make it a point to stay in the Word and be led by the Holy Spirit. We hope that this class will spread the love and understanding of Jesus. Each week our aim is to fall deeper in love with Him.

Preparing for the End of Time

With Dr. Jeff Gates and Dr. Tom McFarland Room 203 | 10am

The aim of this class is to prepare for final events on planet earth and to provide inspiration and encouragement through biblical teaching. Each class begins with prayer requests and prayer time. Class members no longer fear final events as they focus on Christ—not the crisis—while learning how to be ready for what is coming. People of all ages attend. Dr. Jeff Gates is a research scientist who researches inspired sources to present last day events. Dr. Tom McFarland is a retired primary care physician, medical educator, and a marriage and family therapist. His special interest is facilitating small groups to help engender emotional and spiritual growth. Both use power-point in their presentations. Only with a deep emotional connection with Christ can we be prepared for end times.

The Life of David

With Ken DeFoor, Doug Tilstra and Dr. John Cosgrove Room 104C & D | 10 am

This is a Bible discussion class currently studying the stories of King David as recorded in I & II Samuel. Each week we study a passage of Scripture, looking for the story of Jesus and our own story in the life of David. Our conversations center on understanding and knowing God through His word and encouraging each other to live what we learn. We welcome people who may have been away from church for a while and are looking for a good place to consider a re-entry. Ken DeFoor is a local Real-Estate Developer, Dr. John Cosgrove is owner of First Asset Financial, and Doug Tilstra, who taught at Southern for 17 years, now serves as V.P. of Student Life at Walla Walla University.
