Adult Class Opportunities

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. Our purpose is to seek together how we can live out our Christian faith more practically. The goal is not just to inform our minds but to transform our hearts, so that we can look more like Jesus in our thinking, acting and feeling. We offer a new selection of Adult Classes throughout the year in six sessions. Additional classes through our various ministries are also offered throughout the year.

Men's Class: The Christian Survival Guide: Book of Ephesians by J. D. Greear
Begins March 3, runs 7 weeks
Instructor: Elder Rick Corliss
Has it ever dawned on you that nothing has ever dawned on God? He knew before the world began that His people would face hardship, so He gave us His Word. The Book of Ephesians is a survival manual—it equips believers to thrive in a world that hates the message of Jesus Christ. Paul the Apostle writes to encourage believers to live well because we've been lifted from the graveyard of sin and called to shout the gospel into the darkened world. Join pastor and author J.D. Greear as he challenges believers to live out the gospel. If the people of your city, of your school, of your family are going to hear the gospel, it's going to be from your mouth. Encounter Ephesians, and get swept up into the story of Jesus.
