Our core classes will be offered over the span of continuous quarters. Electives will be formed on the basis of creativity, interest, and speaker availability.

Fall Class Descriptions:
Is Titus Relevant Today? – The book of Titus is more than a leadership manual for the modern local church (chapter 1). Paul also gives solid advice for basic human respect (chapter 2), and encourages both Godly attitude and action (chapter 3). Class will be taught verse by verse.
First-Step Class – This class for new converts and prospective new members is designed to overview the heart of Christianity and Triad Baptist’s purpose. To sign up for this class, please call the church office at 996.7573.
Second-Step: MasterLife Discipleship Class – MasterLife is designed to help you develop a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ by learning and applying the six biblical disciplines of a disciple. 1- Spend Time with the Master, 2- Live in the Word, 3- Pray in Faith, 4- Fellowship with Believers, 5-Witness to the world, 6-Minister to others. Cost: $5 for book, which can be purchased in class.
Book of James – Twelve week in depth study of the oldest book in New Testament. Printed notes provided. The book of James was written by the half-brother of Jesus. During Jesus’s public ministry, James did not accept him as the Messiah. His unbelief came to a screeching halt when Jesus appeared to him as the risen Lord. After his conversion, James ascended rapidly in the leadership among the early Christians, becoming the head of the Jerusalem church. In that position, he joined with the apostles Peter and Paul in helping the Jerusalem Christians understand that Jews and Gentiles would be saved in the very same way—through Christ alone.
Knee Warriors (ladies only) – Ladies, hurting is part of living in the fallen world, but as Believers we have hope. Come join us on Sunday evenings as we study, Lord Heal My Hurts, by Kay Arthur. You will learn no matter what you have done or how deep the hurt is, God loves you and He can turn your hurt into Joy.
Marriage Menders – Marriage Menders continues with all new material for folks who want to continue in the class and for newcomers. We'll keep it light and practical but cover a lot of common marriage struggles. We'll use video clips, discussion, and fun activities to help you give your marriage a boost. This class is geared for married and premarital couples. Folks interested in training to be a part of the Life Support Counseling Ministry can also count this class as part of their training. No books or fees. Class facilitated by Shannon Warden, Director of Counseling at TBC.
Financial Peace University 5:15-6:45PM – teaches God's ways of handling money. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more! The registration and course material cost is $93 per couple/individual.
