Adult Learning Classes
The Adult Learning classes are one of the ways we equip the people at SVPC to love, live, know and share the Good News of the Kingdom of God. During September–May we meet most Sunday mornings for biblical teaching, spiritual nurture, and intellectual shepherding. Join us for rich time of reflection as we seek together how to live out the gospel of grace!
In December there will be a four-week Advent study in our 8:50 a.m. Sunday Adult Learning class. The 11:30 a.m. classes will resume in January 2014.
A Season of Hope and Anticipation: Advent Themes in the Four Gospels
December 1, 8, 15, and 22 - 8:50 a.m. in Room 304
Join us for this four-part Advent series that examines the Advent themes found in the four gospels, including hope and anticipation. The word advent means coming or appearance. For Christians, Advent is the first season of the liturgical (or church) year. We observe Advent for the four weeks leading up to Christmas, with the intention of preparing ourselves for the coming of Jesus Christ. The scriptures used in Advent direct us to the birth of Jesus and to the second coming of the risen Christ.
You can download the short study guides for each week of the Advent series:
- Dec. 1 - First week of Advent
- Dec. 8 - Second week of Advent
- Dec. 15 - Third week of Advent
- Dec. 22 - Fourth week of Advent
Life Groups Online Survey
We have completed our exploration of the book Reaching for the Invisible God by Philip Yancey, but would love your feedback on your Life Group experience. Please take a few moments to complete our online survey. Your feedback will help us shape Life Groups as we move forward. If you would prefer to fill out a hardcopy of the survey, please request a copy from your Life Group facilitator or stop by the church office during the week.
