Forming the Faithful

Our word “disciple” comes from the Greek word mathétés, which primarily means “learner.” While discipleship at Peace Church means much more than just learning “head knowledge,” we have to acknowledge that learning about and from Jesus is a primary way through which we become more faithful disciples.

Peace Church Classes are one way in which we engage in such learning, diving deeper into the Bible, theology, history, and culture in a thoughtful, discussion-oriented way.

2018 Fall Classes


Module 3 (November 11–25) 
C.S. Lewis: From Skeptic to Saint

Teacher: Kyle Rodriguez
Location: Children's Ministry Wing (Room 207)

Description: The figure of C.S. Lewis looms large over modern-day Western Christianity. Whether it's the former atheist's conversion story, capturing imagination through the fantastical world of Narnia or illuminating the mind with melodic apologetics, Lewis offers a unique opportunity to see how creativity and beauty can help see the wonders of God in a new way.

Teacher: Pastor Ryan Kimmel, Pastor Ethan Ezikian, and Kyle Rodriguez
Location: Children's Ministry Wing (Room 207)

Description: The aim of this class is to equip Peace Church adults with a practical understanding of the nature and reality of spiritual warfare, preparing them for what to expect and how to biblically respond.


Module 1 (September 9–October 7) 
The Fitness Guide: The Attributes of Christ

Teacher: Kyle Rodriguez and Pastor Ethan Ezikian
Location: Children's Ministry Wing (Room 207)

Description: This fall, our congregation will be going through the sermon series Fit: How the Spiritual Disciplines Help Us Look More Like Jesus. But, that begs the question: What does Jesus look like? To give us more context to our spiritual walk and grow closer to our Redeemer, this five-week class will complement the Sunday morning sermon series by looking at the attributes of God through the lens of Christ.
