Adult Ministries

Friedens' adult ministries are designed to help people follow Jesus together, experience the life change that Jesus offers,

and invest in others' spiritual growth.

Sunday-Morning Classes

Sundays from 9:30-10:15am

From September-May, there are Sunday-morning classes for adults at 9:30am.  Nursery, along with classes for children and teens, are also available during this timeslot.  


The cycle of adult classes revolves around the UP-IN-OUT Triangle.  There are three classes at a time in six-week intervals, and new classes are regularly introduced.  The diagram to the left shows some of the classes that have recently been offered.  

The current set of classes (Jan 6 - Feb 10) focuses on our OUT relationship with the surrounding world.  The classes are:

Tactics

This DVD-based class provides practical instruction for how to comfortably and graciously communicate the compelling truths about Christianity to those around you.  It will help you: skillfully manage the details of a dialogue; address attacks on the faith; and adopt an engaging, disarming style even when people raise objections. This is a great class for you if you want to learn practical "tactics" for engaging in conversations about the Gospel. 

 

Cold-Case Christianity

The historic truth claims of Christianity are under attack from every direction. This DVD-based curriculum features investigations from a homicide detective into the reliability of the Bible’s accounts of Jesus.  This is a great class for you if you want to learn about why the Bible's portrayal of Jesus is trustworthy.

 

Good Faith

How do we “live Christianly” and represent God faithfully when our society thinks Christians are irrelevant and/or extreme?  Based on a book by the same name, Good Faith addresses these questions while also examining sticky subjects like sexuality, racism, religion, politics, and social media.  This is a great class for you if you want to grow in knowing how to handle sticky subjects in gracious ways that are fruitful and faithful to God. 

Small Groups & Bible Studies

It is vital for Christians to regularly meet with other Christians to help each other grow as followers of Jesus.  Small groups and Bible studies meet throughout the week and enable people to study and apply Scripture to their lives, pray for one another, hold one another accountable, and laugh and share life together.


Friedens has a variety of groups and studies.  For a current listing, please contact the church office or check out the Sunday bulletin that is available during worship services. 

Men's, Women's, & Family Ministries

Friedens' Men's and Women's Ministries offer gender-specific opportunities to connect and grow through Bible studies, social activities, service projects, conferences, and more.


Because Friedens values multi-generational ministry, we also have many activities that are geared for the entire family to enjoy.  Examples include: Christmas caroling, game nights, and photo scavenger hunts.  There is also a monthly potluck/social at Pastor Brandon's house for young adults and younger families; this potluck/social frequently has 30+ people in attendance and is a great way for the entire family to connect and have fun!  For families of 5th-12th graders, there are monthly social events for the entire family.
