Adult Education at Providence Presbyterian
Our highest goal is to make the children and adults of Providence into disciples of Jesus Christ through the teaching, study and application of the Scriptures.
The Values on Which Our Sunday School Program is Based
Because we believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God and the Christian’s only rule of faith and practice, all of our classes, seminars and programs will be heavily based on the teachings of Scripture.
Providence places a high value on the practical ‘heart application’ of the truths of Scripture and therefore, none of our educational forums are simply ‘intellectual practices.’
Providence is a ‘confessional’ church, meaning we accept the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms as a concise summary of the teachings of Scripture yet subordinate to the Word of God.
Each teacher and instructor is approved by the elders of the church as competent to interpret and teach the Scriptures and, able to instruct students toward discipleship.
To achieve our stated goal of making disciples, we strive for small classroom size to maximize interaction, provide opportunities for further study outside of the classroom, and encourage deepening relationships among the students.
Summer Adult Class June 10th -
Religions and Cults
"We often here about the importance of having faith, of believing in something. But does it matter where we place our faith? So long as we believe in something bigger than ourselves and try to live a good life, what else matters? After all, billions of people around the world believe in different things, and practice different faiths; and they're good people, aren't they? This class will survey many popular Religions, Cults, or Philosophies to see what people believe, and where those beliefs come from. We'll see what similarities and differences there are between those ideas and what God teaches us in Scripture. And we'll think about what kind of hope is offered in those religions compared to the hope Jesus offers. There are two goals here - first, to clarify and strengthen your faith in the one true God, and second, to understand more of what our unconverted friends and neighbors may believe so we may better relate to them. Acts 17:16-34"
