Sunday School Classes David was a man after God’s own heart who often sought the Lord through prayer. Our new “The Prayers of David” Sunday School class will study David’s prayerful demeanor as an example of taking our petitions and prayers to our Creator. This class combines a personal level of reflection to these powerful prayers as well as a study of cultural and historical content to bring a richer understanding of the Old Testament, David and the power of prayer. This six-week Sunday School class will begin on Sunday, January 12 at 10 am in the Bonus Room at our Hillsboro Village Campus. No sign-up or RSVP required. The Bible offers a very clear command to raise up children to follow in the ways of the Lord. That can be a challenging, and often overwhelming, task. Our new “Parents: Equipping for Life” Sunday School is designed to provide a framework that explains God’s plan for parenting. This nine-week class will look at parenting through a Biblical lens and offer encouragement to one another on the journey. Led by TVCers Jeff & Molly Jones, we’ll meet Sundays at 10:00 am in the Living Room at the Hillsboro Village Campus beginning on January 12. Register now and reserve childcare at ongoing.thevillagechapel.com.
