Sunday School Classes
Church of the Servant provides many opportunities for children through adults to grow and strengthen their faith. From mid-September through mid-May we offer church school classes at 9 am for 4-year-olds through adults. Classes are led by caring, knowledgeable, and thought-provoking Christian volunteers who are members of our church. Our content is steeped in the Reformed tradition and progresses from teaching the stories of the Bible (pre-k – 5th grade) to Heidelberg Catechism & Foundational Theology (6th-8th grade) to Bible Overview & Developing a Christian Worldview (9th-10th grade) to preparing students to defend and keep the faith (11th-12th grade) to sermon-related discussions (adults). Classes are held throughout the church. Follow the signage or stop at the Welcome Table for exact classroom locations.
God’s People Seeking (GPS)
COS has a rich history of deep and meaningful adult education opportunities. Our Sunday Morning Adult Ed Sunday School has included times of story and testimony, theological discussions, lectures, and opportunities to share with each other about what God is doing in our lives. This year, we introduce a new name to our Sunday Morning Adult Ed time: God’s People Seeking.
We invite you to join us Sundays at 9 am for a time to join together in seeking, learning, and growing. Check back here often as we update our GPS schedule.
Intergenerational Sunday School– 1st Sunday of the Month
To foster a greater sense of community and fellowship among all of our members and church attenders, we offer Intergenerational Sunday School on the first Sunday of every month, October through May. Children and adults of all ages are encouraged to join us in the café as we gather around tables for snacks, discussions, crafts, games, and singing while we seek to know God and our church family more deeply.
COS in the Word
In addition to our weekly sermon- related adult ed class that meets in Fellowship Room 5, COS also offers a Bible Study that meets at 9 am in the Living Room. This group gathers together and reads the morning’s scripture text with the preacher. As a group, we share thoughts of “I wonder” and “I notice” as we prepare our hearts and minds to enter the morning worship service.
BES Bible Study
Every other Sunday, at 11:30, members of the Basic English Service invite anyone interested to join together in reading and reflecting on next Sunday’s sermon texts. We will gather around tables with a large-print copy of the written text and pencils to read it together and to answer the questions raised by the text, as well as “What do we learn about God? What do we learn about people? How should I respond to this passage? With whom can I share what I have learned?” This Discovery Bible study method is used world-wide and is simple yet profound. BESers invite anyone in COS to join in this twice-a-month discovery of God’s word.
Wednesday Night Programming
Authors, professors, business leaders, missionaries, environmentalists and other members of our church offer challenging and inspiring talks and discussions on the first three Wednesdays of the month, from 6:45-8pm in the Living Room. Come and be encouraged to grow in your faith. Check the bulletin or church website for current leaders and topics. Church dinners are also provided from 5:30-6:30 on the first three Wednesdays. Dinner Cost: $6, $4 children ages 5-12.
