Sunday Equipping Hour ministries


    Sundays | 9:00 AM | Room 204

    The Bible Track classes seek to establish a solid foundation for reading, interpreting, and understanding  the Bible and to provide an overall grasp of redemptive history.  This quarter, we will use the following resource:

    Grasping God's Word, Fourth Edition,

    by J. Scott Duvall, J. Daniel Hays, Kevin J. Vanhoozer and Mark L. Strauss

    Grasping God's Word is an indispensable guide to reading, interpreting, and applying the Bible. It teaches college-level students and lay learners how to read the Word of God carefully and in context on their quest to gain a firm grasp on the rock of God’s Word. 

    This study is led by Robert Kwong.

    For additional details, please contact the church office: info@bethanyto.org.

  • Gospel-centered Life

    Sundays | 9:00 AM | Room 203

    The Discipleship Track classes demonstrate how we grow and change as Christians by applying God's Word to all aspects of our lives and help us help others become better followers of Jesus Christ.

    This quarter we are offering Christian Beliefs - Twenty Basics Every Christian Should Know, by Wayne A. Grudem. This book is packed with solid doctrine, is succinct, and focuses on critical scriptures and follows all the key doctrinal elements of God's plan of redemption.

    This study is led by Patrick LaCanfora.

  • An introduction to the triune god

    Sundays | 9:00 AM | Worship Center

    The Theology track classes unpack the core doctrines of the Christian faith by focusing on God, Christ, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, man, sin, salvation, the Church, and the Future.

    This quarter we focus on God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit using the following resources:

    Exploring Christian Theology: Revelation, Scripture, and the Triune God

    Edited By: Nathan D. Holsteen, Michael J. Svigel

    Delighting in the Trinity: An Introduction to the Christian Faith

    by Michael Reeves

    This study is led by Jim Hines.

    For additional details, please contact Jim: jimhines@bethanyto.org

  • Evangelism

    Sundays | 9:00 AM | Room 202

    The Worldview Track teaches the necessary principles and skills to bring Gospel hope to a hurting and lost world. This quarter, the focus is Evangelism using the following resource:

    Grace Evangelism, a Grace Community Church Publication.

    Proclaiming the gospel should be as simple as telling people about Jesus, right? Well, yes and no.

    The manner in which you proclaim the gospel may vary--the message must not. God's Word is clear on what the gospel is and isn't.

    Grace Evangelism will train you to clearly and understandably proclaim the gospel message. Each lesson will help you think through the vital aspects of a God-centered message, while "Evangelism Keys" will provide practical applications to assist you.

    This study is led by Shane Kelley.
