The Berean Bible class is for students who wish to dig into the Bible, doctrinal studies, or church history in a more full way than often happens in a Sunday morning Bible class at church. The class is so named because the Bereans were known to have “Examined the Scriptures” (Acts 17:11).
As with anything else in life, we get out of it what we put into it. So the Berean Bible class requires that students read prior to class, attend class regularly, take quizzes and tests, and prepare small reports. While this may seem to be a lot to ask of those who also have jobs, children, etc…, it is no more time or effort than any of us are willing to sacrifice for something else that is very important to us. Students are asked to write a check payable to the church in an amount of $100 to sign up for the class. Upon completion of the class the check will be returned. However, if a student fails to complete the class (not by a failing grade but by simply quitting), the funds are sent to a mission effort. Having more than four absences is considered “quitting.”
Those who have taken one of these classes have found that they grow in knowledge and depth of insight in God and His word. In addition, they discover that their lives are more shaped by God.
