Sunday School Overview
Our adult Sunday School program seeks to create Godly men and women with full heads and full hearts. We recognize that disciples of Jesus need more than just book knowledge or feel-good messages, but only flourish through Scripture and the Holy Spirit. Sunday School alone does not meet every need, but learning from other believers is a key component of training ourselves for godliness (1 Timothy 4:7-8).
At ECC we have two kinds of classes: Core Classes and Focused Classes.
Core classes address topics we believe all Christians should engage with to help them train for godliness. These lecture-style classes are offered on a rotating basis and are held in Fellowship Hall.
These smaller-sized classes explore particular and/or sensitive issues more in-depth than Core Classes do. They are often interactive and may require a degree of vulnerability in those who attend. Focused classes are held in one of our additional classrooms in the modular building behind the church.

Amos: Imaging god to the marginalized
April 8 - June 10, 2018
This Old Testament study ont eh book of Amos looks at how the prophet Amos teaches us how to image God better to our neighbors. We will wrestle with the meaning of the text is Amos's day and discuss together what it means for the people of God today. Taught by Michael Lyons.
Class Memory Verse (Amos 5:6, 14 - 15a):
Seek the LORD and live...
Seek good, and not evil that you may live...
Hate evil, and love good, and establish justice in the gate...
4/8, Reading Amos in light of Prophecy and History (*audio may have a blank space due to table discussion time) Audio
4/15, Amos 1 - 2 Audio
4/22, Amos 2 - 3
Want to prepare for this week's class (4/22)? Read Amos 2 - 3 several times. Look for where the typical prophetic messages appear in these two chapters: international sovereignty, covenant loyalty, restoration. In addition, read Leviticus 19 and the following passages from Deuteronomy: 10:12 - 22; 14:28 - 29; 15:1 - 18; 16:11 - 14; 22:6 - 23; 23:16 - 26; 24:6 - 22; 25:1 - 4. Reflect on the following questions: What was Israel's crime(s), and how do their crimes compare to the nations (chapter one)? After reading the Leviticus and Deuteronomy passages, what is the priority of God in these texts? How might this relate to your reading of Amos?
