Winter Class Descriptions
First Steps 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 (336) 996-7573.
Models for Disciples – Jesus' parting instructions to His followers was to make disciples! During this class we’ll study key life principles (models) presented throughout the New Testament that believers are challenged to live by and to teach others to follow. The models are essential for living a Christian life full of hope, peace, joy and purpose. The class is suitable for new believers looking to be discipled as well as those looking to disciple others.
Basic American Sign Language – What do you need to bring? Just yourself and your willingness to learn and to engage. Tan will teach basic signs for greetings, simple conversations and some tidbits about Deaf Culture. We will be using a sign language book: Talking with Your Hands, Listening with Your Eyes: A Complete Photographic Guide to American Sign Language by Gabriel Grayson which can be purchased here.
Sunday Evening Bible Study – For this session the class will have three teachers leading in the study of God’s Word: Matt Bray, Jason Shuler, David Caranci
Battle Ready - What would it be like to really know God’s Word, to have it so embedded in your heart and mind that you could carry it with you wherever you went? What would it mean to my relationship with God if I really knew His Word? If you are not content to postpone a closer walk with God until you have more time, if you are hungry for God and need Him today for all the complexities of life, join us as we memorize whole chapters of scripture, achieving a more accurate and complete picture of who God is. The book by Janet Pope gives a practical plan for how to
memorize whole books of the Bible and keep it forever using the minutes you already have when your hands are busy but your mind is free.
Everything AVL and God’s Plan for It – A class to engage Gods Digital People using the art of Audio, Video, and Lights (AVL).
