Second Quarter Classes (April - June 2019)

God's Majesty in Education

Each semester, Providence Baptist Church offers a variety of Sunday School classes covering relevant topics, books and Scripture as applicable to the life of the believer and the church.  Our cross-generational adult classes are not segregated by age, college, career, marital status or sex but each consists of a diverse membership, allowing the young and the young-in-Christ alike to benefit from the collective knowledge of other members. The current topics being offered include:


Equipping Courses

Bible 223: Isaiah

Teacher: Brian Fourroux

Textbook: The Bible.

“The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.” This is how the largest book of the Prophets begins. Many people are intimidated by the size and scope of Isaiah, but in this second quarter of a two-quarter course we will systematically walk through and discuss Isaiah’s vision, the prophet himself, and his historical context. As one of the most messianic prophetic books, we will see how Isaiah pointed God’s people to the messiah 700 years before and points them 2000 years after Jesus Christ, Immanuel, walked the earth. We will behold the majesty and glory of God as we explore Isaiah’s proclamation of God’s sovereignty, judgment, and salvation.


Theology 202: Inspiration of the Scriptures

Teacher:  Michael Watson

Textbook: The Bible

“The Holy Scripture is the only sufficient, certain, and infallible rule of all saving knowledge, faith, and obedience.”  This is the first article in the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith and it is this confession that forms the unyielding foundation for the totality of our beliefs.  With the ever-increasing attacks that are directed at the divine Scriptures, it is imperative that we understand the true historical context in which the Word of God came to be recognized as the Word of God.  In this course, we will address contemporary issues of inerrancy, the historical development of the Old and New Testament canons, the intertestamental writings (apocrypha), and bible translation.  We will investigate what the Scripture claims about itself and we will put to rest many of the myths concerning the history of the Bible.


Discipleship 201

Teacher: Jim Carter

Textbook: The Bible with reference from “The Trellis and the Vine: The ministry mind-shift that changes everything” by Colin Marshall and Tony Payne

Description:  This class outlines the who, what, where, when, why and how of discipling – helping others follow Jesus.  It explains how disciple-making relationships should function in the context of the local church, teaching us how to cultivate a culture of discipling as a normal part of our everyday lives.


The Christian (Biblical) Home 201 (Women’s class)

Teacher: Sue Carter

Textbook: The Bible

“The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish tears it down with her own hands.” (Prov. 14:1)

Just what are the elements that make a home “Christian”? I propose that the home that is truly Christian is the “Biblical Home”. We will look first to the Divine design for the home and together we will search the scriptures to find instruction and encouragement on how we are to set our homes apart to the glory of God. Each generation of “homemakers” face challenges from the surrounding culture. Brokenness troubles every generation. How does knowing God make a difference for our homes in this generation? We will look to the scriptures for the design and intent of the biblical home, the home that brings glory to God.


Bible 244 – Acts (College and Singles)

Teachers:  Robert Smith

Textbook:  The Bible

“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8). Come and see how Jesus’ promise is fulfilled through the book of Acts as the gospel spreads throughout the world. And you may be surprised to discover that the means that God is using to make disciples of all nations is…you!
