Classes

The Christian life is one rooted and established in love, empowered by the Holy Spirit. One way we nurture those roots is by promoting spiritual maturity and community through Bible classes. Our classes provide a balance of Bible studies along with life application lessons.

Sundays • 9:45am

September 11 – November 27


INTERGENERATIONAL CLASSES
All ages and stages of life are welcome.

Community Room 3&4
Walking Towards the Cross (Stan Smith)
We’ll be looking in Luke’s gospel and walk alongside Jesus as He weaves redemption into the everyday parts of life.

Room 212
The Way of Life (Rubel Shelly)
This class explores the source and content of Christian ethics. If we are already saved, why bother trying to be good? Are Christians obligated to moral rules? The focus will be a detailed examination and application of Colossians 3:1-17.

Room 214
Building Community (Laura Day & Jason Thompson)
If you are desiring deeper and closer community within the Harpeth Hills family, this class is for you. We are creating a space for single, married, female, male, young and young at heart to explore the names of God together and how He transforms us into instruments for His glory.


SPECIAL FOCUS CLASSES
All are welcome but content is geared toward specific age, gender, or stage of life.

Women’s Class, Tea Room
Miracles of Jesus (Rita Solomon & Gail Powell)

We’ll look through the gospels as we study the miracles Jesus performed in chronological order.

Men’s Class, Room 206
If You Do Not Believe, You Will Not Endure (Johnny Duke)
This study will focus on an introduction to Isaiah and his world. Using the text of Isaiah 1-12, we will encounter the nature of God and lessons for His people from the prophetic message.

College Class, Room 205
Taught by Deron & Becca Smith and Stuart & Melissa Fraser.

Young Professionals, Room 208
Practicing the Way (Hayden Parrish)
This class aims to create a community of young adults and young professionals who want to journey together to learn to practice the way of Jesus in our contexts – how to be with Jesus, become like Him and do what He did.

Young Couples, Room 210
Living in Truth (Hyatt & Jodi Sutton and Doug & Kelly Berry)
Seeking to know the truth in order to live a Kingdom life.

Young Families, Community Room 1&2
Same God (Bill & Lenn Prady)
Our class will focus on the faithfulness of our God. The same God who worked in generations past and breathed life into the church after the resurrection of Jesus through the Holy Spirit continues to meet us today and offers the same supernatural power to live into His purpose.

Families with Teens, Room 215
Good and Beautiful and Kind (Steve Grizzle and Phil Ellenburg)
The goal of this class is to change attitudes so that it is easier to have conversations about faith and theology. To that end, we’ll stress holding fast to theological foundations, increasing our compassion and kindness, and being willing to see everyone as God’s holy creation.

SALT (Single Adults Living Truth), Room 209
Sermon on the Mount (Jeff Turner)
A dive into the convicting, reassuring words of our Master, our friend, our Savior, the Lord Jesus – words that bring healing, direction, and hope.

Witness:

Women’s Class, Community Room 3&4/ Facilitated by Holly Allen & Miriam Parrish

Men’s Class, Community Room 1&2 / Facilitated by Pat Hardie, Charlie Walker, & Jon Watson

Throughout the New Testament, Jesus’ followers were called “witnesses” because they were called to tell others what they experienced in following Jesus. Likewise, our witness – the moments in our lives we have seen God at work – brings glory and honor to God and strengthen the church. This fall our adults will split into women’s and men’s classes to hear different testimonies from people within our church. Each week there will be a time of listening, response, and prayer.


Intergenerational, Room 212
Life in the Spirit with Rubel Shelly
Ever confused about the nature of a “spiritual” life? How to relate “spiritual” to the ordinary routine of your life? This class focuses on the mission of the Holy Spirit in the life of the church. In New Testament vocabulary, the word “spiritual” must always find its meaning from the activity of the Holy Spirit.

SALT (Single Adult Living Truth), Room 209
Forgiving What You Can’t Forget
If you’ve ever felt stuck in a cycle of unresolved pain, playing offenses over and over in your mind—if you’ve ever been hurt so badly that you don’t know if you’ll ever get past it—discover what the Bible really says about forgiveness and how to find the peace that comes from embracing it. This class will use video and other resources by Lysa TerKeurst.
