Adult Education Classes are available during the Second Hour (11–12 pm) on Sunday mornings, Sept 17–May 19, 2024.

THE CHOSEN – SEASON 3 (Sept 17–May 19, 2024): Join our group as we watch and apply Jesus’ teachings as shown in ‘The Chosen’ video series.  We will alternate weeks of watching and discussing each episode using the “Blessed Are the Chosen” guidebook that will apply what we learn to our lives. Facilitator: Debra Indahl          

LIVING IN THE FULLNESS OF PSALM 23 (Sept 17–Dec 3): Perhaps you memorized Psalm 23 as a child and have seen pictures of Jesus portrayed as the “Good Shepherd,” but you may have little understanding or appreciation of the role of the Middle Eastern shepherd or the life of his sheep. In our class, we will learn about both, and then spend time with Psalm 23, experiencing its richness in a new way.  Background material will come from Phillip Keller’s book, A Shepherd Looks At Psalm 23. Our personal resource will be Dallas Willard’s book, Life Without Lack. As we study together, we will discover how blessed we are to be the sheep of Jesus’ pasture. “I nothing lack if I am His and He is mine forever.” Facilitator: Carol Windham                                        

GROWING DEEPER THROUGH PRAYER (Sept 17–Oct 29): In this class, we want to grow in our relationship with the Lord by better understanding the importance and power of prayer and how it can change us. To that end, we will study examples of prayers in the Bible; through them, we will learn how others have approached God and how we, too, can approach him. Facilitator: Crystal Rogers

BIBLE STUDY—RUTH (Nov 5–Dec 10):  As we anticipate and prepare for the celebration of the coming of the Son of David, we will study this short book in the Old Testament. In this story surrounding King David’s great grandparents, we will see how God faithfully brought salvation and restoration to his covenant people as a few of them performed acts of covenantal faithfulness.  Facilitator: Simon Yeh


Living in the Fullness of Psalm 23 (Jan 7–Feb 25): In this class, we will discover how blessed we are to be the sheep of Jesus’ pasture. For the next eight weeks of this twelve-week class, we will be delving into the teachings of Dallas Willard’s book, ‘Life Without Lack’. If you are not currently part of this class, you are still more than welcome to join us in January as we begin studying this book together. Facilitators: Carol Windham and Cindy Barsness. Room 5 

The Bible Lab (Jan 7–May 19): The word of God is our food, and we would do well to chew on it daily. In 2024, you are encouraged to follow a shared Bible reading plan with others in Woodbury Baptist Church, which will be published in the bulletin and distributed electronically. To help us chew and digest well, you are invited to join our Bible Lab every Sunday. During this time, we will discuss the passages we read together in the past week and preview the portions we will be reading in the coming week. We will work together to find answers to the questions you have and share your insights with one another for building up. Facilitator: Simon Yeh. Room 3 (Library). 

Lead Like Jesus (Mar 3–April 28): Healthy leaders are vital for a healthy church. Jesus, the Head of the Church, sets the perfect leadership example for us. In this class, we will follow the book Lead Like Jesus by Ken Blanchard to learn and grow to become like Jesus in leading his church. This class is primarily for current and aspiring future leaders of Woodbury Baptist Church. And secondarily, this class is also for those who aspire to become healthy followers and helpers for our church leaders. Facilitator: Pastor Chuck Apple. Room 5

Christian Cultural Engagement (Mar 3–May 19): In this class, we will provide time and space for Christians to talk about, understand, and process contemporary social issues (e.g., abortion, gender, race, and your suggestions). We will learn about the different world views and beliefs, how they contribute to the differences in people’s convictions, and how we can effectively engage with those who are different from us. Facilitator: Steve Rogers, with Steve Olson. Room 6.
