They are elective adult Bible studies.
They run throughout the year (with occasional breaks) on Sunday mornings at 8:00 a.m., 9:00 a.m., and usually at 7 p.m. on Wednesday evenings.
We have classes for Ladies, Men, and Co-ed. Sometimes the co-ed class is designated “couples” if the subject matter is focused on marriage.
The ladies class meets in room 110 at 9 a.m., the mens 8 a.m. class meets in the Stellar school teachers lounge. The mens 9 a.m. class meets in the Stellar school computer lab, and the 9 a.m. co-ed class meets in the cafe.
Depending on subject matter, usually 4 to 6 weeks. They normally are 90 minutes. Evening class may go a little longer.
No, but there is a charge for any curriculum that may be required. Usually not more than $15, and scholarships are provided.
A variety of topics and books of the Bible are offered. The Associate Pastor and the Men’s & Women’s ministry leaders receive suggestions from students and other church leadership and pray about what should be offered.
Usually Elders, Staff Ministers, or Leaders in the Men’s & Women’s ministries. All teachers are required to be members of NMC and be in agreement with the NMC essential doctrines. From time to time there may be a guest teacher.
We recommend everyone go through Foundations Class prior to attending Ascent (Elective Bible Study) classes. Foundations Class covers what the Bible has to say about the foundational truths of being a Christian. They also cover the NMC purpose statement, our core values and essential beliefs, and information on how to become a Christian and/or member of NMC.
Life Groups do study the Bible (topically and by book) together… but Life Groups are designed to develop genuine and long-lasting relationships and to “Life Out” our purpose statement: “A community of believers committed to worshiping God as we love, grow, serve, and reach others.” Bible Study is an important priority in a Life Group, but Life Groups also participate as a group in serving and reaching out to others. From time to time, members of Life Groups will attend an Ascent Class based on the individual’s need/desire to study the specific topic/book being offered.
Just meet with our Associate Pastor. We look at other options and try to tailor an “in home” study and/or “one-on-one’ discipleship opportunity to meet your needs.
Schedules and topics are printed in our Sunday bulletin and on our website. You may also contact our Associate Pastor, Silas Wood.
