Adult Education

Connect, Learn, Grow


Sunday Classes 

Adult classes meet on Sunday mornings at 9:15am. Their purpose is to exalt Jesus and to keep Him at the center of our lives. Our desire is to equip and encourage people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. It is also an opportunity for people to connect in a smaller setting beyond the large church gathering.

We have ongoing classes that meet throughout the year as well as four to six-week elective classes to help people know Him better, understand and apply the Word to everyday living and to learn life skills for living in the family of Jesus as well as in our homes, neighborhoods, workplaces and community. 

No registration is necessary for our Sunday classes unless otherwise noted. You are welcome to simply show up any Sunday and give them a try. We certainly hope you do!

Connection Point

Taught By Don Westerberg
Deschutes Room

2018 Fall Schedule

September 23: Don Westerberg will be reporting back to the class about his summer mission trip working at Grace Ministries in Thailand. Those from the class who supported him can get caught up about this trip.

September 30: HOW TO HAVE A GOOD FIGHT!  Doug and Joyce Wachsmuth will be teaching on how to resolve conflict in marriage. However, the principles and practical tools shared can be used in all relationships: your family, your ministry, and/or your workplace. Join us and learn how to FIGHT FAIR.

October: We will finish Paul’s final communication and passing of the baton as a mentor to his understudy, Timothy, the book of 2 Timothy, picking up at Chapter 4. October: We will finish Paul’s final communication and passing of the baton as a mentor to his understudy, Timothy, the book of 2 Timothy, picking up at Chapter 4. 

November: We will begin a book study on the topic of one of the most overlooked areas of the spiritual life, the keeping of our soul. Utilizing John Ortberg’s book Soul Keeping, we will spend time looking at the topic of what he calls, “Caring for the most important part of you.” Culturally, we Americans spend much time working on the health and appearance of our bodies, but give very little attention to the health of our souls. Ortberg says, “Greatness of soul is available to people who do not have the luxury of being ecstatic about the condition and appearance of their bodies.”  Come join us for a study that will serve to be like a spa for the soul. But don’t expect to come through this study feeling pampered. It will be more like a workout than a stint in the sauna. Hopefully, we will emerge with the heart cry of David, “Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.”

Truth Seekers: Basic Bible for Internationals

Taught By Sherrie Love
Clackamas Room

Truth Seekers is an adult class designed specifically for internationals or those who are unfamiliar with the Bible.

The Book of Jude

Hosted by: The Come and See Class
Taught by Dick Middlebrooks
Columbia Room

The book of Jude contains critical and important warnings to believers today about the danger of false teaching, particularly as is relates to our freedom in Christ. Jude passionately and briefly pleads for the church to contend for the true faith. Join us as we see what this scripture has for us in the year 2018.

Run For God

We are starting a new class at GPBC! This class combines studying the Word with exercise while building relationships with one another and learning how to live a healthier lifestyle!

The Run For God 5K Challenge is a 12-week Bible study that focuses on endurance and faith. The course is designed to allow anyone the opportunity to walk or run a 5K—regardless of fitness level—and draws parallels between a physical race and our journey with God.

  • Physically- We will create a healthier you and make it possible to reach a new demographic of non-believers-potential believers! Matthew 28:19-20
  • Mentally- Learn the discipline and endurance that it takes to “run the race set before us.” Hebrews 12:1
  • Spiritually- Learn always to give God the glory for all that we accomplish. Psalms 86:12

This class is for all abilities! We will meet Wednesdays from 7:00-8:30pm from August 1-October 24. Feel free to drop your middle or high schooler off at Ignite and join us in the Mt. Hood Room at GPBC. Cost will be $45 which will cover our workbook and t-shirt. Register here.

Our goal will be to complete the Halloweenathon 5K together on October 27 in Aloha! (Entry fee not included.)
