Adult Discipleship

Part of the way we seek to make disciples who make disciples is through adult Christian education. We encourage every adult member of MABC to be involved in personal discipleship through one-on-one relationships, and group discipleship through participation in a small group. Our discipleship strategy is sustained and enhanced through Christian education, which happens through weekly Bible preaching and weekly Sunday School electives.

 

Our adult Sunday School electives provide opportunities to learn and grow through topic-specific classes that include Bible-book studies in both the Old and New Testaments, theology, apologetics, worldview and a variety of topics that focus practically on living out our faith in the church, our homes, schools, workplaces, communities and the world.

For July through September, there are two adult Sunday School options:

 

  • Young Adult Sunday School Class: Getting Church Right?  This class is studying the essential components of the Church in order to better accomplish the work God has called us to. In the midst of a consumer driven and individualistic society many people’s engagement with church seems to be different than what Jesus intended when He established it. Our hope is to identify various practices which have hindered kingdom building and pursue renewal in the way we engage with this local body of believers. We plan to look at the narrative in Acts along with several of the epistles and the various metaphors found in Scripture about the Church. This class meets in the youth room.
  • The Gospel Project: The Story of Redemption in the Pentateuch We continue to work our way broadly through the first five books of the Old Testament, studying God's redemptive plan for mankind, specifically seen through his relationship with the nation of Israel. The focus of this study is to gain a deeper understanding of redemption and apply it to our lives as Christ followers today. This class meets in the Adult Sunday School room.
