This equipping class has a variety of members, but is primarily made up of "empty nesters".
The goal of the Grace Walk class is to study a variety of subjects and topics using an expository method of teaching verse by verse through that subject. We look for what the Scripture says, what it means, and how it applies in the life of the believer.
Fellowship times are meant for personal fellowship and getting to know one another. This allows us to deepen our relationships one with another and so be able to carry out the "one another" commands found throughout the Bible.
There is a time of sharing praises and prayer requests. This class is led with a small group mindset. People can and do share comments, questions and enjoy some lively discussions on the subject that is being taught.
Our Class Time Includes:
A Time of Fellowship, we always have coffee, tea, hot chocolate and some kind of breakfast to snack on
A Time of Singing
A Time of Sharing Prayer Requests & Praises
A Time of Studying the Word of God.
A weekly email prayer list is distributed lifting up the needs of members, families, etc. Our class has a fellowship at least once-per-quarter that typically is a family outing to a LU ballgame, a game night, or something involving food; yes, we Baptists love to eat! Fellowship times are designed for the family and personal fellowship of getting to know each member of the class for support, fun, and development of scriptural relationships.
Class members feel free to share their joys and burdens during the fellowship and prayer time. Rather than a lecture style teaching during the lesson time, there is much discussion with insightful, comments and personal transparency. This class has a variety of members from those in their late 20’s to those in their 60’s but is primarily parents of teenagers as well as some empty-nesters.
