SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS

 
English Sunday School
 
Youth & Adults – Discipleship Intensive
3/1 – 3/31
Vicky Warren/Chapel
During the 4-week workshop participants will not only examine the Biblical Mandate for being a bearer of “Good News” as they navigate the world, but participants will also build a strategic and practical action plan to facilitate spiritual conversations and engage those that they come in contact with each day with the message of the Gospel.  Christians today are becoming more and more aware of the fact that they should be helping to fulfill Christ’s Great Commission. They should be obedient to the command of Jesus to “Go . . . and make disciples.” Still, as in Jesus’ day, “the laborers are few.” Why? Lack of understanding? Too Busy?  Misplaced priorities? Lack of Apostolic Passion? Lack motivation? Apathy? Many simply do not have a vision for what a disciple should and can do. Over the next 4 weeks we will examine: The Biblical Mandate to Engage our Culture. The Great Commission. Becoming a Disciple. The Discipleship Relationship. The Story of His Glory. God is a Missionary God.
 
Youth (7th – 11th Grade)
Gospel of Mark 3/31 – 5/26
Aldous Tsang/Rm 304
Mark intends to demonstrate that Jesus is the Messiah – the one who would redeem God’s people and establish His rule. Mark’s gospel invites us to take a fresh look at the life, teaching, suffering, and resurrection of Jesus and proclaim that He is our God and King.
 
Youth (12th Grade)
College Prep 4/1-5/31
Ryan Tokesh, Jonathan Lai/Rm 312
The wait is over; college season is here. It’s that life-changing experience filled with freedom and joy, but also struggles and uncertainty. How important is identity and balancing that school/ministry/club life? Join us as we navigate through being on your own, learning to take ownership of your faith, and developing meaningful relationships even when away from home. We can never be completely ready, but we can be equipped to handle the many challenges that college students face. 
 
200 Growing in the Word – Gospel of Mark 4/1-5/31
Rick Zuniga/Rm 314
“But what about you? Who do you say I am?” That was Jesus’ question to Peter, and this is His question posed to us today. Each week we will be using inductive study to explore the Gospel according to Mark. Be prepared to engage the text with fresh eyes as we put ourselves in the shoes of the disciples following Jesus from city to city, witnessing His life, His teaching, and His counter-cultural interactions with people. Come curious, come hungry, and come expecting to meet Jesus.
 
300 Following Jesus • Discipleship 4/1-5/31
George & Danielle Wiriadinata/Rm 306
Join us as we collectively go through Mark Dever’s book on the basics of discipleship published by IX Marks. Whether you are interested in learning about discipleship from the “being disciple” or the “discipling others” standpoint, we invite you to come discuss.
 
110 What we Believe Baptism/Membership 5/1-6/30
Lily Chan-Tan/Rm 309

Anit Tang, Dennis & Ida Lee
162 室
這班是 [信心的選擇]之延續,明白了儒、佛、道及民間宗教對我們的思想的定形後,再圖文並列地仔細對比這些宗教與基督教的內涵,顯示出耶穌基督的超越權威,他是一切尋求信仰者的唯一可靠歸宿。然後,藉着切實需要的禱告,一步步帶領學員離棄假神、歸向真神、及粉碎偶像,活一個全新的生命!
對象:[信心的選擇]的學員

C200 讀經樂 – 新約背景與文化
Horace Kwok/309室
聖經成書已有二千年,原著以希伯來文和希臘文書寫,又與近東歷史及文化息息相關。身為廿一世紀的華人信徒,難免對當中的一些記載,寫作手法,用字遣詞等難以理解,又或是不易明白重點所在。同時,聖經是基督徒信仰的核心,因此,我們有必要盡量拉近聖經與我們之間的距離,讓我們能更深明白上帝的話。本主日學期望讓信徒對耶穌時代的歷史及文化有更多認識,讓讀經更易明白,更有趣味。 對象:對新舊約聖經有一定認識的信徒
 
C300 門徒訓練  ─姊妹成長篇
Pastor Anne Hui/155 室
一同研讀《品格重塑》(Character Makeover)一書,透過討論八個品格素質,即關連著我們生命中的五個重要關係 ── 與神(謙卑)、與己(信心、勇氣)、與別人(自制、忍耐)、與事物(滿足、慷慨),乃至個人的未來(堅持),並藉著書中的學習及評估,幫助學員在這五個層面回復神起初創造時那種完全、叫人得著滿足的關係。 對象:願意完成所有課程及功課的姊妹  (本課程不公開收生)
 
C400 生死靈旅
Judy Yau/158室
我人人都會死,但你我都未死過。文化的忌諱丶現代的醫學令死亡變得陌生,我們不單止對自己或別人的死顯得手足無措,亦不知如何過渡哀傷或安慰哀傷中的人。本班嘗試探討聖經的死亡觀和基督教的「善終傳統」,並以不離地的態度作離世前的準備和過渡哀傷期。畢竟,未知死,焉知生? 對象:歡迎所有信徒
 
C600 哥林多前書
Pastor Tang & Pastor Tsang
312 室
本「哥林多前書是新約最長的書信中之一卷。討論一些教會牧養的問題;並為許多困難的問題,提供了關鍵性的答案。而在這些問題中,有不少仍困擾著今天的信徒。詳細閱讀這書卷,可幫助我們在教會中,過著和諧健康的肢體生活和積極地參與事奉!」

基要真理班
張杰民弟兄、沈大衛弟兄 、潘穗雄弟兄/會議室
本課程根據聖經有系統地介紹基督信仰的基本要素,包括認識三一真神、人的被造與人的罪、耶穌基督與十字架的救恩、聖經與聖靈、基督徒的信心與行為、教會的聖禮與憲章。藉此奠定堅實基督信仰的根基,並對本教會的歷史、組織和章程有清楚的說明,幫助你融入這個屬靈的大家庭。
本課程的主要對象是已經決志信主而考慮受洗的初信者,以及在別的教會受洗而要轉入我們教會成為會員的弟兄姊妹。
 
作主門徒課程 「狂熱的愛」    
呂理山牧師/314室
我們都知道神創造了天地,但是你可知道這位永恆的創造者祂深愛你,用一種狂熱的、不可思議的、無條件的愛愛你? 你是否曾經有感動要積極回應神的愛但終究卻落入「不冷不熱」的光景?
這個課程要帶領你來「認真嚴肅地」察看神的話語─聖經,要挑戰你過一個合神心意的門徒生活方式,至終要指引你走向與耶穌相交的親密關係裡。 這課程以陳恩籓牧師(Francis Chan) 的《狂熱的愛》一書作為研讀藍本,配搭陳牧師所拍攝的視頻和所指定的討論問題,藉以幫助教會的信徒領袖和所有希望認真看待聖經的弟兄姊妹一起來學習作主的門徒。
 
聖經課程「讓全世界都知道」綜覽班
趙鳳翔/原冀平/304 室
本課程的目的在於鼓勵弟兄姊妹養成讀經習慣。學員平日按著進度在家自行讀經,主日來教會參加主日學這課程時,再觀看大衛鮑森牧師講解聖經的影音研經講座,如此可以加強對經文的印象和對經文涵義的了解。 大衛鮑森牧師篤信聖經為上帝的話語,無誤無謬;貫穿全書的主題就是神的救贖。本著這信念,他在研經系列的講解中,深入淺出地剖析逐卷聖經,幫助讀者抓住每卷書的精義和梗概。本季課程研讀進度是羅馬書。
 
聖經課程「路加福音導讀」下 
任耀進、洪寶玉傳道/160室
更多地認識耶穌,才會有更好的跟隨與信靠耶穌,讀四福音書就是信徒和慕道友更多更深認主耶穌的最好途徑,而路加福音則是其中最全面的一卷福音書。
本課程旨在幫助和引導學員讀好這卷書,使上本課者更多一些的明白耶穌是神子也是人子,是全人類的救主,更是你個人的主。
本課將探索以知識性解釋為主和培靈討論相輔的教學模式,並加插一些聖地介紹及一些詩歌欣賞的內容,力圖使教與學雙方都能在一個較為活潑氛圍中,在神的話語裡得著建造。
