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.

How to Read New Testament Letters (In-Person & Online)
Instructor: Elder Roger Rumer
Class begins September 12, runs for 8 weeks
The New Testament has 21 letters from early Christian leaders to communities of Jesus’ followers in the ancient Roman world. To understand them correctly, we must learn to read someone else’s mail from two millennia ago. This study will teach us how to work through cultural, historical, and literary context so we can avoid misunderstanding the intended meaning and better understand the wisdom these letters still hold for us today.

Men's Class: The Book of Jonah
Instructor: Elder Rick Corliss
Class begins September 12, runs for 8 weeks
God is most concerned with who we are in Him, than what we do for Him. The story of Jonah gives us a picture of a man on the run due to his own selfish desires. Instead of showing mercy to his enemies, he determined to keep God's grace to himself rather than share it with those he considered undeserving. Jonah's story offers a profound glimpse into the conflict that occurs when God calls resistant believers to His mission. More importantly, it underscores the depths of God’s compassion not only in redeeming the lost, but redeeming those He has called to participate in His reconciling work.

Finding Christ in the Old Testament
Instructor: Pastor Betsy Rumer
Class begins November 7, runs for 8 weeks
Many people separate the Old and New Testaments because they can't see Jesus in the Old Testament. I promise you He is there! The purpose of this course is to give an overview of the Old Testament in such a way that we can see clearly God's purpose and plan for salvation throughout history and its fulfillment in Jesus Christ. Come see why the Old Testament is called the Cradle of Christ.

The Beatitudes of Jesus (In-Person & Online)
Instructor: Varies by week
Class begins July 11, runs for 7 weeks
Do you know what the Beatitudes are and what they mean? The word beatitude comes from the Latin beatitudo, meaning "blessedness." The phrase "blessed are" in each beatitude implies a current state of happiness or well-being born out of our following Jesus. Each week we will look at one of these beatitudes and see how Jesus uses them to describe the attitudes and actions that should characterize his followers and disciples. Whether you are in person or online, let's discover the beauty of Jesus' teachings together!

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!
