Learning and Growing Together Our goal at HCC is to make Adult Sunday School the place that everyone wants to be for an hour each Sunday morning. Every quarter we will offer a variety of courses designed to appeal to both new or longtime participants. We invite you to visit a class or two each session, then make a commitment to attend for the remaining weeks. It is our hope that we will all increase in knowledge, mature in faith and grow in fellowship.
Winter 2019 - Session 1
Adult Sunday School Classes God’s People in Egypt: Joseph and Moses Ben Woodward & Brad Carson January 6 - February 10 Room 211
Giving continuation to our sequential study of the Holy Scriptures, God’s People in Egypt picks up in the latter half of Genesis and the first part of Exodus with two of the most memorable and profound narratives in the cannon: the story of Joseph, a man sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and later exalted by God as the second most powerful man in Egypt, and the story of Moses and the Exodus, one of the most recognizable and impactful religious narratives in the world. We will explore these stories with fresh eyes and new perspectives, examining how God was working through these events to bring about his eternal plan of redemption and renewal through Jesus Christ.
Sacred Marriage Tim & Deb Greaves, Mike & Lynn Dorn January 6 - February 10 Room 133
Happy is good. But holy is better. Your marriage is more than a sacred covenant with another person. It is a spiritual discipline designed to help you know God better, trust him more fully, and love him more deeply. What if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy . . . but holy? Sacred Marriage uncovers the mystery of God’s overarching purpose. This class may very well alter profoundly the contours of your marriage. It will most certainly change you. Because whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God, and to a spiritual integrity that, like salt, seasons the world around you with the savor of Christ.

GiftEd What if you possessed a gift your entire life, hidden from you, but perhaps obvious to others? Discover how God has gifted each of us with unique abilities, interests, experiences, gifts, and personality, perfectly calibrated for our particular circumstance, life journey, and relationships. GiftEd is a lively and interactive six-week course offered periodically throughout the year, a course to learn about our spiritual gifts and to be equipped to use those gifts in ministry. The class is offered at HCC during the adult education hour. Alan and Paula Messimer speak about how to discover the unique tools and spiritual gifts God has given us. One of the tools used can be found at http://archive.elca.org/evangelizingchurch/assessments/ Class size is limited, so sign up in the Narthex, contact the church office.
