"The Core" Equipping Classes

Most of the New Testament is written to “equip” God’s people to live in a way that honors Jesus Christ. We as Christians should be growing in our understanding of our relationship with Christ, as well as in the application of His Word into our daily lives. Questions about our relationships, difficult circumstances, and our own spiritual maturity need to be answered. In order to tackle these important questions, Emmanuel offers a series of equipping classes called "The Core" throughout the year.

Each class is designed to move adults toward spiritual maturity—that is, to become more like Christ in our thinking, our attitudes, and our actions. With a new schedule offered every term, you are sure to find at least one class that will help your continued growth in Christ.

Christian men face formidable challenges in today’s world. There are many obstacles that impede us from living “in a manner worthy of the calling” of Christ (Ephesians 4:1). Our desire at Emmanuel is to encourage men in the outworking of their Christian calling, whether it concerns the workplace, home (as a husband and/or father), or their personal walk with the Lord.

Every third Saturday of the month (except for July-August & December), we meet for a Men’s Breakfast where we are studying the Priority of Prayer. In addition, men’s classes are offered periodically.

The women of Emmanuel have many opportunities to live out their calling in Christ. The primary ministry emphasis for women is our Titus Two ministry, which teaches and trains women to think and live in accordance to God’s design for us so that He may be glorified.

There are also several women-specific Bible studies offered throughout the year, a Mom's Play Group (Tuesdays @ 11:00 am), larger-scale fellowship and teaching events, and a biennial off-campus retreat. At any event or gathering that Women’s Ministries hosts there will be a bible-centered message for the women, as our desire is to encourage the women at EBC to become women of discernment who live out God’s word in our lives and community as ambassadors of Christ in a very lost world.
