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.
Winter Adult Classes Starting December 3rd
The Book of Daniel
Are you ever discouraged by the terrible events happening in the world today? If your answer is “often” then Daniel is the book for you! Daniel presents hope for the people of God in the midst of desperate situations, not by painting rosy pictures but by showing the sovereign faithfulness of God down through the corridors of time. That hope reaches even to our day through the one Daniel calls “the Son of Man” and “Ancient of Days.” We will also focus on Daniel’s answer to the question, “How can a Christian be faithful and obedient to God in an ungodly society?”

Inviting Family & Friends to Faith
When we hear the word evangelism, we often think of it as something “extra” we are commanded to do in our Christian walk and it can fill us with a sense of inadequacy. In reality, sharing our faith is as simple as introducing others to our best friend, Jesus Christ. In this class, we will examine biblical examples of evangelism and consider the key truths of the Bible that are essential to our salvation.
