GROWING IN GRACE
Classes on Sundays* from 9:50 to 10:30 am | January 15, 2023 through June 25, 2023
No matter where we are on our journey of faith, the conviction that we all need to continue growing in the grace and knowledge of Christ undergirds our discipleship classes at Naperville Presbyterian Church. For a plant to stop growing is a sign of unhealthiness. So too for us as Christians. Let's never stop growing!
We offer discipleship classes for all ages, to help us grow and flourish in our faith through the life-giving truths of the gospel.
Classes and Room Locations:
*Classes will not be held on April 9, and May 28.
Since room locations for adult class may need to change, room numbers will be posted as you enter the Adult Education Wing. Adult Ed Classes meet on the lower level. Use the stairwell or elevator near the Worship Center. No registration required and those interested may attend any time during the session.
PARENTING BY GOD'S PROMISES | Taught by Jim Mason
Parenting is arguably the most important job in the world. Which parent or grandparent doesn’t need encouragement and help from God’s word in this most important of jobs? We will be referring to a book by Dr. Joel Beeke with plenty of practical wisdom for everyday situations, but we will work to expose the crushing trap of thinking it all depends on us. Such thinking actually leads to either discouragement or pride. Discussion will be an important part of the class and we will learn from the Bible and from each other that struggles are common and that God is big enough to see us and our kids through.
TO LIVE IS CHRIST: PAUL'S VISION OF DISCIPLESHIP AND MISSION IN PHILIPPIANS | Taught by Dr. Andrew MacDonald
Few books offer as stark a vision of the Christian life as Paul's letter to the Philippians. Writing from a Roman jail, the apostle rejoices in the faithfulness of one of his earliest church plants before exhorting them to live out their mission. Filled with both complex doctrine and pastoral care, Philippians is a powerful word for the modern church looking to live faithfully in the midst of a changing culture. In the study, Dr. Andrew MacDonald will walk through Paul's argument in Philippians with an aim of growing our faith in Christ, love for God's Word, and hope for gospel mission in our community.
PRAY NPC: AN ONGOING OPPORTUNITY
