“Walking in Grace” is an adult Sunday class that meets at 9:15 each week. It's a diverse group of people that meet together, and anyone is welcome to attend. The class is currently looking at the topic of "Our Identity in Christ", focusing on the writings of Paul, and applying them to the situations we see all around us today.
We also periodically offer a “Welcome Class” and a “Getting Connected” class as a way to help newer people to meet some of the pastors and ministry leaders, learn more about what we believe and how we do ministry here, as well as get connected to others in the church. “Take 5” meets every Sunday after the 11am service in the Cafe (signs will direct you there). You’ll be able to meet Pastor Mark and learn about ways that you can begin to connect here at Fellowship.
"Walking in Grace" Class Description
The “Walking in Grace” adult Sunday School class is starting a new study on “Our Identify in Christ”. We will be using Paul’s Epistles as a basis for understanding who we are as followers of Christ and as children of God. The question of personal identity in the world has changed a lot over the last 50 years. We have always been a melting pot in America but our cultures are more intertwined than ever before, we used to have strong gender roles that don’t exist any longer, the Judeo-Christian morality does not permeate society as it once did, our occupations are to a much lesser degree influenced by what our parents did, and we are much more likely to relocate somewhere totally different than where we grew up. Thus, the things that influenced and determined our identity in the past have greatly changed. Many voices in our society have tried to provide suggestions on how to find yourself, to discover your true identity, and to understand your place in the world. But they are very different than what God says about this topic. Scripture says that our identity is all tied up with our relationship with God and that who we are as people has to do with who God is.
Mark Driscoll in his book “Who Do You Think You Are” supports this, “The world’s fundamental problem is that we don’t understand who we truly are – children of God made in His image – and instead define ourselves by any number of things other than Jesus. You aren’t just what’s been done to you but what Jesus has done for you. You aren’t what you do but what Jesus has done. What you do doesn’t determine who you are. Rather, who you are in Christ determines what you do”.
In the 1st Century Church, there were also a lot of different ideas and concepts that were influencing who these new followers of Christ were. They were being told different things about who they were, what they needed to do, what was glorifying to God and what wasn’t. They were being told how they needed to live or that they could live the same as their culture. So when the Apostle Paul writes the letters to the churches, he deals with these issues.
