Sunday School This Fall...

At CAC, we recognize that we’re all at different places in our walk with Jesus, and yet we want to provide meaningful opportunities for spiritual growth for each of us. As such, we have a wide variety of Sunday School classes being offered this fall from 9:00 – 9:45 at the church. Some of these classes are better suited for those who are new to

Jesus. Others are better suited (and designed) for those who have pursued their

relationship with Him for a long time. The classes are listed below:

 

  

GRACE, LAW AND LEGALISM (Sept 22 - Nov 3)

Teachers: Stephen & Phyllis Lee  Location: Chapel

This class will take a look at God’s intended application of law and grace and how the human heart is drawn to legalism “as a moth to the flame”. With my five decades of a life shaped in legalism, I hope to bring a unique perspective as we study this central topic. We will base our study on some key Bible passages and group involvement. The duration will be six weeks with no class on October 20th.

 

HOW NOW SHALL WE LIVE? (Sept 22 - Nov 10)

Teacher: Darrell Furgason Location: Choir Room

When Jesus prayed for God’s kingdom to come, was He praying for a physical reality to invade tomorrow or an allegiance of our hearts to Him today?  In this class we will come to see what it can look like to live for Christ in a world that cries out for our attention and adherence to its principles. How are we being subtly influenced by the world? Let’s explore that together.

 

IS THE HOLY SPIRIT WELCOME HERE? (Sept 22 - Nov 24)  

Teacher: Bryant Yeomans  Location: Committee Room

The theology of the Holy Spirit has divided Christians and churches for generations. For some of us, the Spirit is an active part of our lives. For others, He is largely overlooked. In this class we will be working through some theology surrounding the Spirit, while also considering what part He plays in going deeper and wider with God.

NEW COMERS CLASS  (Nov 3, 10, 17, 24)

The New Comers Class is designed to be a place where newcomers to CAC can get an overview of our church’s ministries and beliefs, while also meeting other new people in our community and enjoying a cup of coffee.


FRIENDS CLASS   (Sept 22 - tentatively)

Teacher: Ida Struiksma   Location: Room 35

This is a class for people with special needs. Come and join with friends as we sing together, share with one another, and study the Bible. 





Small Groups

The Vision for Small Groups at Chilliwack Alliance Church is to connect people into groups of four to twelve who come together on a regular basis for a common purpose. The group is led by an identified leader who is assisting the group in their progress by providing full devotion to Jesus Christ. This is done intentionally by providing an environment for connection, community and spiritual formation. 


We also want people to know that our Small Groups are a place where there is always a seat at the table of community. We are the body of Christ, the family of God, a community of followers devoted to Christ and His cause. As we come together in small communities we are better able to fulfill our mission; connecting people to passionately pursue Jesus Christ. If you are interested in joining a small group, contact Pastor Matt Mordaunt.

Senior’s Care Ministry

Proverbs 16:31 reads ‘’A gray head is a crown of glory; It is found in the way of righteousness.”

 

Visitation is a ministry of love and compassion to those who are homebound or shut-in. Individuals or teams of two visit those in area hospitals or other healthcare facilities including private homes, to pray, encourage and share a word of scripture. Team members seek God's guidance in preparing for visits so that they might minister as unto the Lord with an uplifting attitude and a spirit of compassion.
