Adult Education

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.  2 Tim 3:16-17

Here we have a comprehensive statement on our Adult Education Philosophy.


4th Quarter Classes begin on October 1, 2023 


Bible 260: 1st Peter – Melissa Patterson

Textbook:  The Bible with reference from 1 Peter Bible Study Book – Lifeway (ebook available at

Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers' true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ.  We study the key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ to guide our study of 1 Peter. Members are challenged to read 1 Peter in its entirety each week.

Bible 259:  James – Dennon Clardy

Textbook:  The Bible.

The letter from James is a strong reminder that we need to not only hear the word, but we need to do the word. There is a moral urgency in his call to repentance, to action and to a consistent Christian lifestyle. During this study, we will spend two quarters unpacking, verse by verse, the practical wisdom of James.

Theology 203- The Doctrine of the Church (Ecclesiology) – Logan Dolloff

Textbook:  The Bible with study guidance using The Church, by Mark Dever and the Providence Baptist Church Articles of Faith and By-laws.

“The doctrine of the church is of the utmost importance. It is the most visible part of Christian theology, and it is vitally connected with every other part.” – Mark Dever, The Church

Ecclesiology is the study of the Church. Despite common assumption to the contrary, the Bible tells us a surprising amount about how Christ’s Church is to operate. Things such as baptism, the Lord’s Supper, worship, membership, and church government are all addressed in God’s Word. As members in Christ’s Church, we have a responsibility to be educated on what it means for us to exist as the Church and what God has told us to do as Christ’s body. We will spend time in this course examining the Scriptures as well as working through The Church by Mark Dever, it is a helpful primer on the doctrine of Ecclesiology.


Theology 305: Trinity – Brian Fourroux

Textbook:  The Bible with reference from Delighting in the Trinity by Michael Reeves

"All salvation, every blessing, and blessedness have their threefold cause in God - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit." - Herman Bavinck.

There is no doctrine more fundamental to the Christian faith than that of the Trinity - and perhaps none more misunderstood. We will explore what God has revealed about His triune nature in Scripture, how the saints throughout Church History have understood that revelation, and how misunderstanding this doctrine has led countless astray. This class is for anyone who has ever struggled to understand or articulate this aspect of their faith. The study of the deep richness of the Trinity is sure to be an encouragement to your soul.

College and Young Singles

Bible 209: 1st Samuel – Jordan Ring

Textbook: The Bible

The book of 1st Samuel introduces us to the Kingdom Era of Israel’s history. The book covers the transitional period in that history, from judges to kings, a time when people rejected Yahweh’s Kingship and demanded a human king – “. . . a king to judge us like all the nations.” We will study this transitional period by looking at the life and works of the last judge, Samuel, through the establishment of the monarchy with Saul as Israel’s first king and the preparation of David to reign after Saul. In this class, we will take a theocentric approach to our study. As we read, study, and discuss the historical narrative of 1st Samuel, we will: 1. Discover God’s providential guidance and His sovereign will and power in the critical events of the transition to monarchy.  2. Identify the biblical principles contained in the narrative, and 3. Determine how we may apply these principles to our lives as Christians.
