Equipping Classes (Sun PM)

Our Sunday night discipleship offerings usually rotate on a seasonal schedule, with 10-12 week courses in the spring, summer and fall, and a mini-course in January. These groups offer training in a variety of areas, but most classes fall into these general categories:
  • In-depth studies on particular books of the Bible
  • Theology and related issues, like ethics or apologetics
  • Parenting
  • Marriage
  • Financial Stewardship
  • Leadership training
Discipleship classes run from 6:00-7:30 pm. Activities for babies, preschoolers, elementary-aged kids and middle and high-schoolers are also available during any regular Sunday night classes.

At the Creek, we use a four-level system to organize our discipleship classes. Anyone is welcome at any class at any time, but these levels might help you understand which class you may fit in best.

Level 1: Basic Christian doctrines, spiritual disciplines, Old and New Testament Introductions, and one on one guidance for new believers.
Level 2:  Further study of Christian doctrines, basic witness training, discovering spiritual gifts, and serving in the local body of Christ.
Level 3:  In-depth study of books of the Bible, apologetics, ethics, and special studies on finances, parenting, marriage, and much more.
Level 4:  Biblical Intervention training, mentor training, and developing mentoring relationships.

Foundations • Level 1
Facilitated by: Pastor John Wright, Mike DiMeglio, and Jason Brown
Building on the right foundation is important. The class helps believers understand essential biblical truths in a clear and meaningful way. You'll make lasting friendships, enjoy sweet fellowship, and establish a solid foundation in your faith. This class will address doctrinal questions such as: 
*Where did the Bible originate? 
*What has God accomplished in my salvation? 
*How does the Holy Spirit work in my life? 
*When and how will Christ return in the future? 

Putting on the Whole Armor of God • Level 2
Facilitated by: Pastor John Nyota
Are you ready for spiritual warfare? Do we have to put on the armor of God daily? How do we put it on? What if I am missing one or more of the pieces? Join us as we explore solid biblical answers from Ephesians 6:10-20. We will look at the interconnection between each piece of the armor and why each is important. We will use Putting on the Armor: Equipped and Deployed for Spiritual Warfare as a resource. Books may be purchased for $15 the first class meeting. 

Jesus Christ, the One and Only • Level 2

Facilitated by: Pastor Jason Hall 
No teaching is more foundational to our faith than the person and work of Jesus Christ. We will journey through the whole of Scripture to notice how the Old Testament prepares the way for Jesus; how the Gospels, Acts, and Letters portray the Living Savior; and finally, how this teaching equips us to love, serve, and emulate Jesus every day. 

God's Will, In Light of the Times • Level 3
Facilitated by: Nathan Brown
As our culture and the world continue on their spiral of change, where do I, as a follower of Christ, fit in God's plan? Every day we move closer to Christ's return. How then should we live? What is God's will for believers in light of the times? Join us as we walk through 1 & 2 Thessalonians and learn from Paul's letter to the church concerning God's will for our lives in light of the times.
