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.

Doctrine: Revelation :: Level 2

The doctrine of Revelation is about how God reveals Himself through creation and the special revelation of His Word - the Bible.

We will also look back at the history of the Bible and how the Bible we have today came to be.  

Evangelism: The Way You Were Born to Do It :: Level 2

Dr. Alvin Reid & Pastor Jim Gillespie  

You were born for this. God hardwired you for this. I'm talking about sharing Jesus with others. Evangelism is less about delivering a polished presentation and more about having a real conversation. God has created you to bring glory to Himself by sharing Jesus with others, and you don’t need years of training to obey what He already made you to do. Come and learn how to better fulfill God’s purpose for your life.

Marriage God's Way :: Level 2

Richard and Suzanne Bailey    

Our culture has a tainted view of marriage consumed with selfishness, pride, and twisted truths that lead to destruction and hopelessness.  However, God's Word teaches us the truth about marriage, showing us His purpose and plans for this incredible relationship. While Satan attempts to deceive us and destroy our marriages, Marriage God’s Way will teach how God intended marriage to be and how to strengthen your marriage.  Whether you are considering marriage one day, are recent newly weds, or have been married for years, this class is for you!

Every Man's Battle :: Level 2

Dave Hopkins & Brian Smith

Winning the war on sexual temptation is Every Man’s Battle. Through Bible study, open accountability, and classroom discussion we will confront impure thoughts, pornography, and the root of all sexual temptation, namely lust. We cannot avoid temptations; however, we can have total victory through the cross of Jesus Christ.

Reformation History & Theology :: Level 2

Pastor Jason Hall 

500 years ago this fall, Martin Luther nailed 95 theses to a chuch door in Wittenburg, Germany. This act sparked the most important spiritual and cultural movement in more than a thousand years. In this class we will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, catching glimpses of key people and enjoying theological conversations along the way.

Gentiles, Israel, & the Church - Past, Present, Future :: Level 3

Winn Crenshaw 

Putting biblical history into context can be difficult sometimes. However, it is important for understanding our place in God’s plan. This topical study will look at how we as 21st Century believers fit into what God did in the past, is doing now, and will do in the future.

WEW - Women Equipping Women :: Level 1

Cynthia Jernigan

For the new believer and the woman who has been a believer for decades, WEW provides the opportunity to develop and strengthen foundational spiritual disciplines of the Christian faith through teaching, accountability, and encouragement, so that women may know, love, and obey God on a deeper level. The disciplines taught are Bible Study, Prayer, Worship, Evangelism, Service, and Giving.

The Book of Malachi :: Level 3

Faith Cross & Dawn Jones 

In the book of Malachi, God’s people are on trial because they have failed to represent Him rightly to the nations. They are accused of half-hearted and disobedient worship, forsaking the sacred relationship of marriage, and withholding from God what is already His. God confronts our compromised, lukewarm Christianity and calls us to return to Him and experience again the blessings of His ways.

What's It Like to be Married to Me? :: Level 3

Carol Taber & Tina Yawn | Prayer Coordinator: Anna Heimbach 

What is it like to be married to me? Now there  is a interesting question! Come join us as we grow in our understanding of how God uses our role as wives to mature us in Christ and to be a blessing to our husbands. We will be using Linda Dillow’s book “What’s It like to be married to me? And other dangerous questions.” Her book is both encouraging and challenging.
