Sundays at Bonhomme: Growth Hour

What exactly happens on Sundays from 9:45-10:45 am? Some of the words used to describe this hour are “Sunday school,” “spiritual formation,” “Christian education” and even just “classes.” We know that there’s something for everyone during that hour: from infants to children to students and youth to all manner of adults, but why exactly, are we gathering people together for that hour? In short: to help us all grow as disciples of Jesus. Our community exists to help new people discover Jesus and to help all of us grow as his disciples. Bonhomme, is, after all, where faith grows. And that’s exactly what this hour is dedicated to: providing environments where we can grow as disciples. So think of this Sunday morning hour as “Growth Hour.” Ask yourself, “How does God want to grow me as a disciple over the next couple of months?”

Sundays at 9:45 am | Session I [Fall, 2018] 

Households of Faith [Don Everts, Room 3205]

From the beginning of time God intended for faith to be enjoyed, practices, and passed on in the context of extended families. But how exactly did God intend for that to work? And how can we practically put God’s vision for “households of faith” into practice today? Learn what the Bible has to say about healthy households of faith. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncles, or friend, it turns out you have an important role. There will be three discussion tables: 1. Kingdom Parents 2. Parents of youth 3. Household members who are friends or relatives.

Christians and Politics [Joan Brown, Room 3208]

This class will explore the four Christian traditions of political engagement, from the early church through the nineteenth century. A slightly revised version of the 2016 class, we will seek to understand how we can best represent the Kingdom of God in today’s critically divided culture.

Dust to Glory, Part II: An Overview of the New Testament [Jim Keim & Terry Grogan, Room 3224]

This is a video lecture series by RC Sproul; we will journey into a biblical overview of the New Testament from the Intertestamental Period through Revelation.

The Book of Joshua [Curt Ruhlman, Quilting Room in the Chapel Wing]

This class will study the Old Testament book of Joshua, who after the death of Moses, became the “servant of the Lord.”

Sermon Discussion Group [Jim Graham, Room 3226]

Take the time to unpack each Sunday’s sermon and discuss how it can apply to your life.

Fireside Chats [Phil Hargrove, Kilby Commons, Second Sunday of the Month, beginning in October]

Set aside the second Sunday of the month for a low-key conversation and time to share thoughts, prayer and praise. Other classes will not meet on the second Sunday of each month so that members can attend Pastor Phil’s Fireside Chat.

Fellowship [Phil Hargrove, Kilby Commons]

Pastor Phil will always be available during Growth Hour to chat, fellowship and engage.
