He gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ . . . (Ephesians 4:11–13 ESV)
What are Equipping Classes?
Equipping Classes are subject-driven and content-focused courses that take place during the Sunday education hour (9:30–10:30 AM). Our classes offer various levels of instruction on books of the Bible, theology, and biblical application in various areas of life. The desire for our ECs is for everyone to grow deeper in their understanding of the gospel, to learn to interpret and apply the Scriptures, to Biblically engage in culture, and to be transformed in daily living.
For a detailed explanation, check out our blog post, "What Are Equipping Classes?"

Classes will be offered on a semester basis.
