Proverbs 2:6 ~ For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

The education ministry exists to facilitate the spiritual growth of the church community through a vibrant Sunday School, New Members’ Class, Discipleship Enrichment/Bible study, Vacation Bible School, and other training initiatives.

If you have any questions about the below classes, please contact admin@mtvernonbc.org

SUNDAY SCHOOL

The church meets for an enriching and lively Bible study each Sunday from 9:45—10:45 am. The Psalmist writes: Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, a light unto my path (Ps 119:105). Equally relevant for our time is Paul’s charge to Timothy: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage – with great patience and careful instruction (2 Tim 4:2).

You are cordially invited and encouraged to participate in a group study and discussion. Come and share your experiences with other students of the Bible.

NEW MEMBERS’ CLASSES

This ministry affords new members, as well as inactive believers who seek to refresh their understanding of the church’s beliefs, an opportunity to strengthen their faith and deepen their knowledge of Jesus as Lord through an informal and relaxed group Bible study. Each member receives a manual specially designed for new and inactive members who come together each Sunday from 9:45—10:45 am for the purpose of discipleship enrichment and to encourage and affirm one another in the faith.

DISCIPLESHIP ENRICHMENT/BIBLE STUDY

This is a midweek class each Wednesday from 7:00-8:00 pm. The focus of the current study is the “names” of God that describe His providential nature as revealed through His intervention in Israel’s history and the early Christian church. Future studies include how we got the Bible, various methods of baptism, stewardship, and the relationship between faith and works. You’re cordially invited to join us for a delightful hour of study and shared experiences.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL (VBS)

VBS is for everyone (contrary to the popular misconception that it is for children only)!  VBS is a specialized form of religious education and instruction which focuses on both children and adults. It connects children and adults together to study the Bible through a variety of fun activities. VBS is a three-day ministry. It is usually held the second weekend of July, from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon. VBS is a time for spiritual renewal and revival.
