Adult Classes

Memorial Park Church places a high value on spiritual growth. Our desire is to meet people where they are in their faith development and to engage them in an intentional discipleship ministry that is both inwardly strong and outwardly focused, moving them to greater maturity in their relationship with Christ. We offer a selection of Adult Classes on Sunday mornings in six sessions. Weekday classes are also available through other ministries.

Going Deeper Into the Sermon (In Person)

Finding Purpose When Life Doesn't Make Sense
Instructor: Rick Corliss
Class begins September 11, runs for 8 weeks
You think you make good life decisions. You always want those decisions to align with God's road map for your life. Yet, you are encountering unexpected detours & distractions as everyday life happens. Did you miss something? Let’s look at Joseph and see how God diverted Joseph’s life, tested his resolve, delayed his desires, and tried his faith through hardships, adversity and suffering. We will discover Joseph’s work ethic, choices under pressure, his burden for his nation, his heart faith, and his legacy. God devoted 14 chapters of Genesis for Joseph’s story to make sure we know He has our plan in place and assure us He is walking with us.

Habits of the Household
Instructors: Carly Taylor
Class begins September 11, runs for 8 weeks
Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, God parent, or parent in Christ, we invite you to join this session to read and discuss Habits of the Household by Justin Whitmel Earley. Together, we might discover meaning in the daily chaos of raising children and learn to practice the story of God in our everyday rhythms. From the author: “If you’re anything like me, you find your days infiltrated by chaos. The daily chaos of dishes and dusting, laundry and brushing teeth. With two young kids, just the task of supplying snacks seems like a full time job in and of itself right now. And each new stage brings new challenges and chaos. I love the satisfaction of crossing these tasks off my list. But what if there is more to them than just another item to check? What if there was formative power in these tasks? What if, by leaning in, these tasks could form me into the likeness of Christ and provide space for my family to encounter Him?”

Christopher Class (In-Person)
Instructor: John & Rhea Christopher
Class continues May 1
There are many books about prayer. However, John White in Daring to Draw Near takes a different approach to study the subject. In his book, he presents Bible studies of characters who knew how to pray. As we listen to their prayers, what can we learn from these experts, who include Abraham, Jacob, Moses, David, Daniel, Job, Paul, and Jesus? (Books may be purchased from IV Press, Thriftbooks.com, or Amazon).

Christopher Class
Instructor: John & Rhea Christopher
Class continues July 10
James Montgomery Boice indicates, "Few portions of Scripture have been so challenging to me as the Minor Prophets. It is because they speak so directly and powerfully to present sins. It is just not possible to read them carefully without having one's life challenged and without determining to go out and live differently." We will continue our study of the Minor Prophets this session.

Effective Discipleship While Persevering in Faith Summer Session: As we work through 1 Thessalonians, chapters 4-5 we will be looking at how we as Christians need to live in a culture opposed to Christianity.

LIFE Groups

God created us to enjoy relationships! We are all born with a deep need to know and be known. God’s design for us has wired us to want vibrant and growing connection with Him and each other, so it’s natural that we grow deeper in our faith and in abundant, joyful living when we live life together. LIFE Groups are a place to learn from God’s Word and each other, and gives us a place to belong.

Living in community in the form of groups has been a longstanding value of Memorial Park Church. We offer two pathways to help you get connected: by starting a LIFE Group or joining a LIFE Group. Our active list of groups changes often, so if we don't already have a group that meets your availability, consider attending a starter group during a Life Group Launch!
