Emmanuel offers Sunday and weekday classes based in scripture and centered in Christ. Our adult Bible-study program is designed to help us better know and understand the Bible, strengthen our relationship with God and one another, and give us hope and courage for daily living.


A brochure with schedule and room locations for adult, Sunday school, confirmation, and youth classes is available in the rack in Ebenezer Hall.

No classes on April 21 (Easter) or April 28 (Mission Presentation).

Instructor: Rev. Gene Brunow

Step into the New Testament world of the Corinthian Christians with us. You’ll recognize yourself, your church, and your own world—as we explore issues the Corinthians faced and study Paul’s counsel about forgiveness, our rights and the needs of others, and taking temptation seriously.

March 3-May 19
Instructor: Rev. Dennis McFadden

Last quarter we covered the main “sermon” of Hebrews (through chapter 10). This quarter concludes the book with exhortations to faith, hope, and love in the life of a disciple (chapters 11-13). Then we turn to the Old Testament to examine the rich backdrop of feasts and festivals that honored God’s goodness and pointed to Christ (and which Hebrews kept referencing).
