Adult Ministries

Ministries for each stage of life make Berean Bible Church a wonderful place for the whole family. Come visit to see how the energy of youthfulness and the wisdom of experience have combined to create a rich atmosphere of learning and discipleship for all ages at Berean.

Adult Sunday School

We strive to present a quality, Bible-focused learning experience for every member of the family. For adults, the Sunday School hour is broken into two sections. Every week the adults meet in age divided groups called Peer Groups, which gather for fellowship and prayer. These six adult Peer Groups also plan socials and ministry activities throughout the year.

Erridzo, which means rooted, is for ages 18 to 25 and meets in room 101
Adolos, which means sincere, is for ages 25 to 42 and meets in the Lower Lounge ( room 107).
Charis, which means grace, is for ages 42 to 55 and meets on the gym stage.
Aletheia, which means truth, is for ages 55 to 66 and meets in room 103.
Fidelia, which means faithful, is for those over 66 and meets in room 207.

Typically on the first Sunday of each month Peer Groups enjoy Coffee Breaks, which provide an extended time of food, fellowship and devotions which lasts the entire Sunday School hour (9:30-10:30 am). On the other weeks the Peer Groups meet from 9:30-9:40 am and then dismiss to a variety of electives classes from 9:50-10:30 am.

 

Adult Elective Classes
The selection of elective classes changes three times each year and generally includes the study of Old and New Testament books or portions of scripture as well as topical studies, including marriage and parenting classes. Some electives are focused around video series, some are mostly discussion based and occasionally a class will use a workbook. All sessions aim to help us understand and apply God's Word.

Couples Ministry

We believe that families are best served by a mother and father who are committed to God and one another. By providing Sunday School classes, small groups, conferences, and counseling, our church seeks to support and educate couples as they strive to honor God in their marriages.

Women's Ministries

Women at Berean are encouraged to grow in their walk with God and offered many opportunities to connect, serve, and learn. Join us as we seek to strengthen relationships through discipleship, outreach, and special events.

Men's Ministries

Berean provides discipleship groups, Bible studies, breakfasts, retreats, and special events in an effort to disciple men of all ages to be more like Christ.

Small Group Ministries

Small Groups at Berean provide ways for you to further invest in your spiritual life, find accountability, and share your walk with other members of the church. If you’re ready to dig deeper, Pastor Gary Hansen can get you and your family plugged in.

Young Adult Ministry

Whether you are in college or out of college, employed or unemployed, you are welcome in Erridzo, Berean's young adult group (ages 18-25). Erridzo means rooted in Greek, and we serve, study, play and laugh, all while recognizing that being rooted in the way of Jesus is the best possible way to live. We meet regularly on Sundays at 9:30 am.

ACT

ACT is our Thursday night group for young adults. We meet at 7:30 pm every week for fellowship and a time to grow deeper in the Word.

“That the World May Know” video vol 10

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but with Ray Vander Laan, you get both pictures and words of wisdom regarding Biblical events in the Holy Lands. This class will include a few single lessons from other volumes in the series and then go through volume 10 which shares insight on events that took place near Jerusalem and southern Israel’s Negev region. Various facilitators - Gym stage

Galatians

We will study together this very important letter that Paul wrote to the churches in Galatia. This book is significant in understanding Paul's message of the grace of God and how God is working as the Gospel goes out to the entire Gentile world. We'll also consider the historical and cultural context of this letter.

Gospel of John part 2

Few books of the Bible have influenced the life and thought of Christendom as the book of John. The reason is that John paints such an intimate portrait of Jesus as both God and man that appeals to and satisfied the soul. We'll start up where we left off last spring, but welcome anyone to attend.

Let’s Talk About the Basics of our Faith

There’s no end to what we can learn about God, His Word and Christian life, and it can seem complicated and overwhelming. Thankfully, many of key elements of our faith are not that complicated. If you’re a newer believer or would like to consider how to talk about what we believe as Christians in simple terms, come join us. We’ll review the concepts that are most important and share ideas about how to articulate what we believe in ways that are understandable and maybe less threatening to non-believers. Suzy - Room 100
