We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. Our highest goal is to make disciples of Jesus Christ.
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.
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.

GETTING THE BIBLE RIGHT
The Mystery of the Holy
The Holy Spirit often seems like the most hidden and mysterious member of the Trinity, yet the Bible has much to say about Him! In the biblical sense a “mystery” is a truth once hidden but now revealed. This is especially true of the Holy Spirit. In the Old Testament we get glimpses of the Holy Spirit, but in the New Testament His person and work is revealed more clearly by Jesus and the apostles. In this class we will examine the Scriptures seeking to understand the Spirit’s personhood, work, and relationship to us.
