Adult Education And Enrichment

Discovery and Elective classes will begin on Sunday, March 5th. Register early by going online to goldenhills.org/grow/discovery-series.

Are you new to Golden Hills or thinking about ways to get involved and continue your spiritual journey? We encourage you to start at Golden Hills by taking the four Discovery series of classes which we offer at various times on Sundays. After that, we encourage you to get into a small group through our Shepherding Ministry Department. Why start with Discovery? Because the Discovery Series is designed to move each person systematically through basic issues of the Christian life. The series contains four books with twelve issues in each book. Thus we suggest you complete the courses in the order shown below.

Discovery 1 - Discovering the Christian Life
This first course is designed to build a firm foundation for Christian life. The primary issues addressed are:

  • What does it mean to be saved?
  • What does it mean to walk by faith?
  • How do I live for God?

Discovery 2 - Discovering Intimacy with God
This course helps to deepen the bond of faith between the believer and God. The primary issues addressed are:

  • How do I find out about God?
  • Who has God revealed Himself to be?
  • How do I worship God?

Discovery 3 - Discovering Your Role in God's Family
This course is designed to help the believer understand their place in, and the importance of, the local church. The primary issues addressed are:

  • What is my role in church life?
  • What is the church's role in my life?
  • What is the church's role in the world?

Discovery 4 - Discovering How to Share Your Faith
This course is designed to equip the believer to reach out to others with the Good News of Jesus Christ. The primary issues addressed are:

  • What is stopping us?
  • What is your natural sharing style?
  • Who does God want me to reach?

Core Men's Ministry

Men only Wednesday night Bible Study @ 7pm in W234/235. We're studying the Book of Ephesians. All men are welcome to join us.

The Apostle Paul wrote this letter about A.D. 60 during his two year imprisonment in Rome. Ephesus was the most important city in western Asia Minor (now Turkey). One of Paul's themes is that of unity, all Christians are one family in Jesus. He also wrote about the church, not a church building, but one that is made up of all Christians through all the ages. Chapters 1-3 are about doctrine, teaching and theology. Chapters 4-6 address practical, duty and applications. Taught by Bill Uhlrich.
