Adult Education

Sunday Morning Connections - Adult Education Ministry

Since the beginning of time, God relentlessly has pursued a meaningful relationship with humankind. This longing found its greatest expression when Jesus, "the exact representation of His beginning" (Hebrews 1:3), entered our world, inviting us to "learn" from Him (Matthew 11:29).

This call to discipleship is the driving force behind CrossBridge's Adult Education ministry. The curriculum, taught by devoted, qualified Christians, is designed to bridge the gap between intellectual knowledge and practical application of God's Word. The ultimate goal of the program is to lead its participants into a real, and joyfully obedient, relationship with our Savior.

Core Principles

To at least point toward that lofty goal, the adult curriculum is founded on the following core principles:

  • Engage Scripture - God's word is one complete, divine revelation to make known to us the "mystery of [God's] will, according to His good pleasure, which He purposed in Christ" (Ephesians 1:9).
  • Experience God - God sent His Son that we might know God (John 14:9). The Word and God are inseparable: "in the beginning was the Word and the World was with God and the Word was God (John 1:1).
  • Enter into Grace - God's word is His communication to His adopted children and God's invitation for all humankind to enter His family. The Word reveals, not only the secrets of life, hope, and peace, but also the way to grace.
  • Express God's Love - An intentional study of God's word reminds us that "faith expressing itself in love" is all that really counts (Galatians 5:6).
  • Enthusiasm for Service - As we mature in our relationship with God, we will become "a people of His very own, eager to do what is good (Titus 1:14).
  • As indicated by these core principles, the curriculum has been designed to engaged Scripture that results in experiencing God so that we might enter into His grace, express His love to each other, and become involved in service to others. We sincerely pray that the Adult Education Ministry will inspire its participants to engage God while they connect with others.

    Goals of the Adult Education Ministry:

  • Teaching people how to connect with God through scripture, prayer and other believers.
  • Connecting people who are on similar journeys in life with one another.
