We believe that meeting together each Sunday in Enrichment Classes gives our congregation the opportunity to study God’s Word with other like-minded persons in an intimate setting. We have 4 classes—designed for people of all age groups and interests. They are a place where:
· The Word is carefully taught
· Worldviews are impacted and changed
· Shepherding and personal care occur
· Spiritual gifts are used
· Opportunities to serve Christ and one another are plentiful
Each of our Enrichment Class teachers and leaders are carefully and prayerfully selected to serve in their areas of giftedness, and humbly serve underneath the authority of our Council of Elders and Pastoral Team.
These classes all take place immediately following our worship service at 11 A.M. and will run until approximately 11:55 A.M (we can’t guarantee that they occasionally won’t go a little longer).
Financial Peace University: This class will cover the standard FPU material along with some bonus teaching on the condition of our hearts surrounding stewardship of our finances. FPU presents biblical, practical steps to show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more! The course is great for teens to retires, so bring your family! One FPU membership is required per family.

True U 01- Does God Exist?
This class will be a discussion of world views. Our hope is to solidify your confidence in God by teaching a Biblical world view. As with each of our classes, all ages are welcome and can benefit from this study. We all are surrounded daily by those with a different world view! This class will contain a 30 minute video along with more relevant teaching and discussion. The class is originally geared to equip students to face those of our culture that tell them their faith is absurd, obsolete and impractical. Our goal is to help anyone deal with these issues.
This class will be taught by Brian Weiss and Matthew Morken in the Gym
Is a class that has been meeting on Sunday mornings at Grace for more than four year. The group has typically consisted of “older than average” persons, i.e. “fiftyish and up”, but individuals of all ages are welcome. JOY leaders make a concerted effort to engage members of the group in study as well as ministry activities. For example, group members participate in a variety of hands-on ministry service activities such as Feed My Starving Children, Samaritan’s Purse, and food drives for the Northland Rescue Mission. The Metro Naga Bible Community Church in Naga City, Philippines, continues to receive strong support from JOY.
The greatest percentage of our time together is given to discussion-driven, biblical teaching. This year, our topic of focus is “The Actions of the Holy Spirit in the Early Church”. We’d be excited to have you join JOY!

We all desire to have a healthy and fulfilling marriage. As disciples for Jesus Christ, our marriage relationships should represent God’s glory through us. So, we encourage you to join us as we facilitate this class to help you become fully satisfied in Him so His glory shines through your relationship as husband and wife. We will be showing about a 15 minute video at the beginning of each class, followed by a discussion time during which we will review what we have learned from the video. The discussion time will be an opportunity for you to interact with others in the class, or just sit back and listen. But, we desire it to a participating learning environment. We will be utilizing Dr. Emerson Eggerichs’ video series from his book “Love and Respect”. If you have participated in the class we held on this series two years ago, we invite you to come back because we all know we need to be reminded what the Bible teaches us about how to have a healthy marriage. If you’re not married yet, but planning on getting married in the near future, this is a great class to build a future marriage relationship on. Some of the topics we will cover on the secret to a better marriage are: Pink and Blue - Not Wrong, Just Different; Hollywood or Holy Word? ; 80/20 Ratio; Not Communication, But Mutual Understanding; My Response is My Responsibility; Stay The Course.
We think you will be amazed at what the Bible teaches us about how to have and enjoy a healthy marriage. And, this class material can help all of us to enjoy that blessing.
This class is taught by Rich Kinney and Rahn Farder in the Overflow.
