Sunday School

In-Person Sunday School Starts Back June 13

Adult and children’s Sunday School Classes will be meeting on Sundays at 9:45 a.m. in person at Forks of Elkhorn Baptist Church.

Adult Classes

  • Discipleship 101 Revisited (Various Teachers): While the culture and experience of Discipleship 101 will never be replicated, the plan is to have a temporary class as members explore other classes, start new classes, or decide to form a version of Discipleship 2.0. Several different folks have been asked to teach/lead each week and time will be provided for discussion, visiting, reviewing other available classes, and making decisions about our individual futures in the Forks Sunday School.
  • Young Adults (Teacher: Jon Baker): This class is designed for College age up through the time you still feel comfortable being called a “Young Adult”! We discuss the Bible and focus on making God’s word our foundation as we establish our careers and families. We strive to share and encourage one another in making God a part of our everyday life. We have great discussions about overcoming temptation in today’s society and standing out in this world for Jesus.
  • Shepherd’s Flock (Teacher: Connie Camden): The Shepherd’s Flock is a co-ed class for adults desiring to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus, the Good Shepherd. As his flock, we gather to learn how to disciple, minister, pray, love, forgive, share the Gospel message, and follow the Shepherd’s voice through the leading of the Holy Spirit and the revelation of God’s Word. In this class, the Bible and Lifeway curriculums are used; discussion is encouraged; and age range varies. Come grow with us as we follow The Good Shepherd. “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” John 10:27 (NIV)
  • Encouragers (Teacher: Galen Linville): The Encouragers class focuses on studies that are both biblically sound and help the individual to develop a closer relationship with God. Study materials range from studies on the various books of the Bible to books that bring the message into modern times. We believe that God is very active in our day to day lives and through class participation and the sharing of views God has placed on our hearts and minds, we will be able to see a clearer picture of what He has planned. We invite anyone who is interested to attend our class. There is no set age limit, and all are welcome.
  • GAP (God’s Always Present) (Teacher: Kim Holloway): The GAP Class is a group of women of all ages who are madly in love with Jesus Christ their Savior. Every Sunday they meet to study his word and learn how to apply his word in their daily lives. They search the Bible for the answers in their struggles of being a Christian woman in today’s home, workplace and community. The GAP Class love each other and support each other in any way that is needed. The GAP Class also works closely with the Women’s Ministry for opportunities to serve the community in times of need. We welcome all women who would like to join our unique sisterhood and Bible Study class.
  • Senior Couples (Teacher: Dan Arnold): The Senior Couples class was initiated as a place where senior couples might engage in Bible Study together, but anyone is welcome to become a part of this group. The class is interactive with discussions centered on lessons from the Lifeway material. Bible study with the goal of increasing our knowledge and the depth of our understanding of God’s word to us in His Holy Scriptures is the main goal of this class. As we work toward this goal, class acquaintances become Christian friendships and class interactions often turn into outside activities together.
  • Joy (Teacher: Marsha Clark): The Joy Class is a loving, caring group of women, close to each other and very welcoming of new comers. This is a very good place to meet other women and make lasting friendships. We use Bible Studies for Life study material. We meet periodically for food and fellowship and are active in many church ministries.
  • Senior Men (Teacher: Dean Oschwald): The Bible is what we are dedicated to study with lessons from the Lifeway Sunday School materials. Class discussion and participation are encouraged. Any age is welcome.
  • B’rith Covenant (Teacher: Charley Carlson): This Sunday School class is currently in the early study of the book of Joshua and welcomes any who are interested in joining a group of folks who desire careful study of God’s Word in a small group format. We have alternated between Old Testament and New Testament books, and most recently we completed a review of the first two chapters in each of the five major books of the Psalms which was preceded by a year-long study of the book of Revelation. The class features shared discussion of each chapter in the book under study as we systematically seek to understand God’s message to His church.
  • College & Career (Teacher: Todd McDaniel): This class offers an opportunity for young, single adults to grow in their relationship with God as they form a support system for one another. Our purpose is to study the Bible and learn how its truths apply to our lives at school, work, home and in relationships. Learning to live out these truths will help young adults to fulfill their individual purpose and have an eternal impact on the world we live in.
  • Esther (Teacher: Lorene Heskett): The Esther Class is for ladies of any age who have a desire to continue to learn from God’s Word, grow in their faith, and relationship with God and others. We are currently studying Bible Studies for Life. We welcome class participation, but no one will ever be embarrassed by being called on to read or answer questions. We are a fellowship of believers who pray, encourage, and love one another. Our goal is to bring honor to God, and glorify Him in all that we are and in all we do. Our desire is to fulfill Christ’s commission and purpose for all people to be able to hear about Jesus, and know Him in a real personal way, as their own Savior and Lord. We believe God has placed us here, “For such a time as this.”
