FAITH FOUNDATIONS

FOR KIDS, YOUTH AND ADULTS

WHAT IS FAITH FOUNDATIONS?

Faith Foundations is our version of Sunday School. Acts 2:42 says, “And they devoted themselves to the apostles teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.”  This passage is our focus for the Faith Foundations time from 10:00-10:45 AM every Sunday morning.  We offer classes for children, youth and adults that meet people where they are in life in order to equip them to know Jesus through scripture and to take that knowledge and apply it to our lives.

FAITH FOUNDATIONS FOR KIDS

3s-K – Room 103
1st – 3rd grade – Room 305

Join us for a Children’s Ministry REVAMP in our Faith Foundations classes! This year, all children will be welcome to come to class and start each Sunday with fellowship and fun. Third-floor classes (1st-6th graders) are welcome to come up to their room at 9:50 AM for games, snacks and time with friends. Additionally, we will begin a new curriculum called GROW. Read more about the scope and sequence here. Preschoolers will have a similar flow to last year with additional fun elements that are sure to spark excitement for learning the Good News of Jesus!

 

FAITH FOUNDATIONS FOR YOUTH

Groups will meet in the Harbor House on campus or the Jackson Ave Office across from the gravel lot on the corner of Jackson and Ocean Avenues. If this is your first time attending Faith Foundations and you are in grades 7-12, please come to the Harbor House.

Breakdown Each Week:
10:00-10:10 – Big Group announcements
10:10-10:20 – Catch up with Small Group
10:20-10:45 – Study and apply Scripture

Youth Faith Foundations is taking a relational approach this year! Rather than providing traditional teaching, there will be small groups (4-8 students grades 7-12) that will be led by an adult and a ministry team student. Each week, the groups will gather throughout the Harbor House and the Jackson Ave Office from 10:00-10:45 AM to study and apply the scripture passage that is covered in that week’s sermon. The goal is two-fold: to grow deeper in our relationships with one another AND to have a deeper and fuller understanding of the gospel of God’s grace and His call on our lives as we reflect on the Scriptures. On the first Sunday of each month (communion Sundays), we will have a special meal with the entire group and have either extra fellowship or one-off teaching.

 

FAITH FOUNDATIONS FOR ADULTS

 

PARENTING IN THE PEW

Room 201 – Taught by Pastor Scott and Rebecca Castleman

While Pastor Scott’s father was up front leading the church on Sunday mornings, his mother had to try to figure out how to parent two restless sons as a “single mother” in a church pew. She was not content with keeping her sons occupied doing something else during worship. She wanted to teach her boys how to engage with God in worship. Dr. Robbie Castleman found some things that worked. She began to teach other parents what she had discovered about parenting in the pew. What she learned on her own and began to teach to others eventually became her first book, Parenting In the Pew. Pastor Scott and his wife Rebecca are excited to teach through Scott’s mom’s book as a class offering for Faith Foundations this spring. 

WE WILL WALK WITH GOD

Room 202 – Taught by Dr. Clay Brown

How do the well-known Bible stories, such as King David, the Woman who Washed the Feet of Jesus, Ananias/Sapphira, The Prodigal Son, Matthew, the Paralytic man, and Romans 12:2 intersect in our lives? This scripture commands us to “transform our lives and to not conform to the world.”  In the Faith Foundations class We Will Walk with God,  the transformative power of Jesus Christ will be studied in these biblical characters and applied in your individual lives. Specific attention will be given to seven key areas of life:  Spiritual Health, Physical Health, Mental Health, Emotional Health, Relational Health, Financial Health, and Vocational Health. Dr. Clay Brown is excited to teach this hybrid class of how past characters can influence our future walk with Jesus Christ.
