Adults

We encourage all adults to get plugged in to a ministry at Incarnation. Through our Sunday and weekday classes and Bible studies, Community Life Groups, and Growth Groups, every person is provided an opportunity to build key relationships that can last a lifetime. Community is an important part of life at Incarnation. Together, you become renewed in your faith.

We also encourage you to get involved by serving each other during worship and serving the poor in our community. We hope you will connect with us so we can help get you plugged in where it best meets your needs.

Sunday School starts at 10:20 am sandwiched by our 9 am and 11:15 am services. We have a brief time of fellowship followed by Sunday school for all ages. We encourage you to join us for a cup of coffee, drop your kids off at a class for their age, and then sit in on any adult class.

A Walk in Philippians [June]
Room 205, Education Building

Paul’s letter to the Philippians has one of the most well-known, yet misused verses of the Bible: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. What exactly is this epistle about? Join the clergy as we do a Sunday School class in June going through the entire book of Philippians.

Join the clergy as we do a Sunday School class in June going through the entire book of Philippians.

JUNE 2
Philippians 1:1-30
We will take a look at Paul’s reasons for writing the letter, but also why Paul still has faith even though he is in prison.

JUNE 9
Philippians 2:1-18
This passage is one of Paul’s greatest Christological statements in all his writings, but he also has an important application for Christians everywhere. What is it?

JUNE 16
Philippians 2:19-2:30
What does Godly fellowship, brotherhood look like, especially in a church that experiences suffering and persecution?

JUNE 23
Philippians 3:1-16
Paul’s wholehearted and righteous pursuit of God is a model for all of us. But why did he live this way? What does this say about our tendency towards a lukewarm or nominal faith? 

JUNE 30
Philippians 3:17-4:23
Not only are Paul’s final instructions for the Philippians, final instructions for us, but his farewells shows us a church that strives towards unity and godliness. How do we live in the same way?

Hot Topics! Mary Edition [July]
Room 205, Education Building

There’s just something about (the Blessed Virgin) Mary! Since the Reformation, Mary has been either ignored on one side, or dogmatized on the other. Is there a middle way? Our hope is to learn more about Mary, Jesus’ mother, as a way to understand God’s hope for us, the Church.

JULY 7
Theotokos
What does it mean to say that Mary is the Mother of God?

JULY 14
Immaculate Conception
Why do some Christians believe that Mary was born sinless? Why does this matter for us today?

JULY 21
Ever Virgin
Is it true that Mary remained a virgin for her entire life? What about the Bible references to Jesus’ brothers and sisters?

JULY 28
Up to Heaven
What does Mary’s going up to heaven (Assumption) have to do with our spiritual destinies?
