Discipleship Hour 2019

Start: Sat, September 28   End: Mon, November 18 | 11:00am - 12:00pm | Naperville Presbyterian Church

ALL CLASSES follow the Sunday Worship Service 

Martin Luther once wrote: "This life, therefore, is not righteousness but growth in righteousness, not health but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise; we are not yet what we shall be, but we are growing toward it; the process is not yet finished, but it is going on; this is not the end, but it is the road; all does not yet gleam with glory, but all is being purified.” The conviction that we all need to continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ, no matter where we are on our journey of faith, undergirds our Discipleship Hour at NPC. We have great classes for everyone, from kids to adults, to help us along this road. Please join in!

 

ADULT EDUCATION *
Philippians  Taught by Stephen Wunrow and Dave Veerman 

Hearing news reports of violence, natural disaster, and heartbreak, watching political opponents tear into each other, and reading hate-filled posts on social media can depress even the most optimistic person. These days, joy seems to be a rare commodity amidst all the doom, gloom, and negative rhetoric. But consider what first century Christ-followers faced in a place like Philippi—an oppressed minority surrounded by pagan neighbors and a hostile government—subject to prejudice and persecution. Yet, Paul exclaims, “Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice!" (4:4). That was God’s message for those early believers and for us. During our 8 weeks together, we will dig into the book of Philippians to hear God speak, better understand his Word, and find joy.

 

Christians in the World Taught by Joel Blackmon and Evan Brown 

In this class, we will be exploring what the Bible says about some topics that are not mentioned often in the church and discussing how to live out our faith in light of what the culture is saying about them. This course will correspond with MSM’s fall youth group series and is highly recommended for any parent, but also for all Christians as we seek to live out our faith well.

Discover NPC Taught by NPC Elders

This 6-week series is led by our elders to help you discover more about NPC, who we are, and what we believe. This class is for you if you are new to the church, or if you've been around a while and have questions. Offered in the Fall & Spring, this class is a great first step and also is required if in the future you wish to take our membership class and become a member of the church.
