Our Sunday morning adult Bible classes come in three varieties. These classes offer a range of approaches to Bible study.
Phillip Strickhausen, one of our deacons, teaches the Young Adults on Sunday mornings. Meeting in the Family Life Center, the young adults are finishing "Fit for the Master" and are soon shifting to another study. This is our most free-flowing class. Open discussion about what has happened, what is happening and what is about to happen is a huge part of the class. Although many of the students are 20-somethings, there are also some really old guys in there (like Danny).
At the other end of the scale, Elder Robert Ward teaches the Sunday A.M. Auditorium Class. Robert does not stifle discussion, but the class is more about listening and more for folks who like to settle into pews. Robert is studying the New Testament epistles and is now beginning II Peter.
We also have a second class aimed at non-young adults. Another group of matured adults meets in the inside fellowship hall. Our preacher, Don Prather, leads this class, and it typically involves as much class participation as teacher presentation. We have just begun a study of the Minor Prophets to see if they contain practical lessons for everyday Christianity (they do!).
In addition t the adult classes listed above, we have Bible classes for all ages. Bobby Rader does a great job with our teens, for example, and the ladies who teach the younger kids are always up at the building cutting and pasting for their little ones.
The Ladies Ministry at Liberty Church of Christ is a learning and growing ministry designed to give women opportunities to enrich our spiritual relationships with God and with each other by studying God's word. We are committed to providing opportunities that will strengthen our knowledge of God which is the most powerful weapon in the world today.
Study of the Word of God together, opportunity for fellowship, and a time of sharing with prayer describes the Ladies Bible Class. You are invited to join us each Wednesday morning from 10:00 a.m to 11:00 a.m. in the church library. This class meets September to May of each year.
1 Timothy 4:12 - Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe.
The Liberty Church of Christ youth group is focused on continually learning more about what God expects from us as Christians, applying it to our lives, and being bright shining lights for Him in our schools and the rest of the world. It is important to understand that, as Paul told Timothy, young people can make a difference! We are a fun-loving group of kids who care for and love one another as family, and enjoy participating in many church activities throughout the year, including:
•Church devotionals, dinners, bowling, and other Christian fellowship activities
We are always working to improve our leadership skills, and the congregation at Liberty makes it a point to keep young Christian men deeply involved in helping lead our worship services, while our young Christian women play a major role in teaching our "Children's Church" for little kids.
