Fall 2019 Sunday Schedule

From September 8 to December 29, we are continuing our two-service schedule into the fall. Services are at 8:30 and 11 a.m. Adult, student, and children’s Sunday school is at 9:45 a.m.

After a successful Summer Schedule pilot, we are continuing our two-service model into the fall. We will continue to hold two worship services—an earlier service and a later service—with a Sunday school hour in the middle. We love our multigenerational worship and the middle hour being a common place of connection, learning, and growth. Continue to invite your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. All are welcome as we serve our great God and his Son Jesus Christ!

Sunday School Classes

Tough Questions (121A)

Pastor Bruce O’Neil

This class is designed to answer some of the tough questions Christians and Christianity are often asked: “How does anyone know God exists?” “What difference does Jesus make?” “How reliable is the Bible?” “How could God allow suffering and evil?” “Don’t all religions lead to God?” “Do science and the Bible conflict?” “Why become a Christian?” and others.  There are good answers to these questions. Shouldn’t we know them?

Discover EP Membership Class (School Library)

Laurie Nelson, Tom & Mary Thompson, and Team

The membership class is essential for every person who considers Annapolis EP a potential church home. Though completion of the membership class is a requirement for joining the church, it is designed to give you an opportunity to discover who we are, what we believe and how we are to live a missional life.

The 9 Arts of Spiritual Conversations (Fellowship Hall)

David Driftmier, David Stadler, and Josh Mast

We all want to be able to share our faith with others we care about in a way that is comfortable. What what we often experience, however, is that sharing our faith can be awkward, scary, and perhaps even off-putting. Modeled upon Jesus’ interactions with those he encountered, The 9 Arts of Spiritual Conversations is a practical approach to sharing our faith with those who believe differently.

Philippians: Finding Joy in Trials (Church Library)

Jim Ferguson, Dave Porter and Mike Hoffman

We will look at the second half of the book of Philippians, Paul’s very personal letter to a church he loved and among whom he took great joy. Joy—because of their growing faith and transformation, partnership in the gospel, their support of the work of the gospel, and their friendship. Finding joy in trials is one of the main themes of the course.

The Gospel of Mark (153-154)

Frank Rouland and Bruce Holtzman

The gospel of Mark is the shortest but fastest moving of the synoptic gospels, emphasizing facts and miracles and depicting Jesus as a man of action and authority. Join us as we explore this amazing account of Jesus’s life and ministry.

Genesis 1-11: Creation, Fall, Flood, Nations (155-156)

Ace Sarich

The first eleven chapters of Genesis lays the foundation of the Bible, Christianity, and our faith in a good God who created our universe. We will study many of the questions surrounding these chapters using “The Genesis Academy,” a newly released 12-part video series with study notes.

Women of the Word: New Testament Letter | Class for Women (Parlor)

Cheryl Mullis, Debbie Cavallaro, Monica White, and Debbie Topp

This class aims to help you learn more about how to open up the Bible on your own and use Bible Study tools that will challenge you to think and to grow. Whether you have been a Christian for decades or you are a young believer, you are welcome. We’ll apply the five P’s of bible study—purpose, perspective, patience, process, and prayer—as we study a New Testament letter together.

Reading the Psalms and Celebrating the King (101)

Jay Mitchell

In this class, we will study the Psalms by considering their poetic genre and original context. Together with the Psalmists, we will praise God, give him thanks, and learn to lament. Moreover, deeply depending on the Holy Spirit, we will see how these divinely-ordained songs lead us to Jesus and deepen our devotion to the Father.

Financial Peace University (006)

Zach Miller

Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small-group activities, this nine-week course presents practical, biblical steps to steward your money.  You will learn how to walk out of debt, build significant savings, and leave a lasting legacy for your family, church and community.

The Living Word and the Heidelberg Catechism (005)

Jack Mastrangelo

We believe the lord Jesus, the Living Word, can be discovered through the Old Testament prophets. We also believe that music can help convey their messages. Join us as we explore the beauty of the prophets’ message for us today. We will transition into the Heidelberg Catechism when we have finished our study of the prophets.

Gospel-Centered Marriage (001)

Brian and Leigh Miller and Team

No matter how long you’ve been married, every marriage needs encouragement in the good news of grace. We’ll be reading Paul Tripp’s book, What Did You Expect? Tripp writes: “God’s work in your marriage is a process, not an event. It progresses not in three or four huge moments, but in ten thousand little moments of change. And what makes this change possible? Relentless, transforming, little-moment grace. So we wake up each day committed to live in the small moments of our marriage with open eyes and humble, expectant hearts.” Please join us as we learn how to live out “little-moment” grace in our marriages.
