Proclaiming Christ in the Roanoke Valley since 1851
Sunday Bible Classes
All Sunday Bible Classes begin at 9:00 am.
These two classes have joined together and meet in the Fellowship Hall. Cornerstone takes its name from the scriptures, which state that Jesus is our cornerstone. "Koinonia" is a word of Greek derivation, used by the early Christians to denote communion, dialogue and sharing in small Christian groups. With these two truths in mind, this class takes time to read and study the Bible encouraging class participation and discussion.
Good News/McClanahan Bible Class
The McClanahan Bible Class has the longest continual record, in the Roanoke Valley, for an organized Sunday School Class and the joining of these two classes have given both a renewed emphasis on personal Christian growth and maturity along with service. There is a goal to learn and to grow as Christians and to support each other while doing so. Visitors are always welcome to this community of faith. The class meets in Room 207.
The Agape Class
We are offering a Sunday School Class tailored toward young adults, couples, and parents of children from age birth- college. "The Agape Class" will meet in the parlor on Sunday mornings from 9-10am for a bit of socializing, snacks, and study. This class is designed to be an opportunity for young adults, couples, parents, and their friends to understand the help the Bible gives us in not only child raising, but in daily interactions in the world. Relating to an increasingly secular world can be overwhelming. The class will share the journey, give us a chance to share success, work through the trials, and learn together in a supportive and relaxed atmosphere.
Weekday Bible Studies
Sermon Apps – While listening to a sermon, have you ever wished you could stop and have a point clarified or a question answered? Well, we’ve got an App for that. Meeting on Monday evenings in the Session Room, off the Ramp Room, this gathering is a discussion of the previous day’s sermon, facilitated by the Pastor, to answer questions, explain further, or make clearer a point. 7:00-8:00 p.m.
Women’s evening Bible study (SIBS, Sisters in Bible Study)– Following the rigors of the day it can be easy to get lost in the swirl of activities. Maybe you just need some time to know and be known. Gathering in the Parlor (across from the Office), listening to a study being presented on DVD or simply studying a biblical topic, these women delve deeper in the scriptures to hear from God through his word. 6:00-7:30 p.m. If you would like to join please contact Deborah Mattern.
Women’s morning Bible study (SIBS, Sisters in Bible Study) – Once the kids are off to school or you don’t have school age children anymore, there is time to gather in the parlor for a morning spent with Bibles, hearts and minds open. DVD and leader directed studies allow for a variety of topics to be covered as one seeks to deepen her faith. Tuesday mornings (except 2nd), 9:30-11:30 a.m.
ABS – (Adult Bible Study) – As exercise is important for the development of ones abs so what consideration is given to ones spiritual development?
