Our core classes will be offered over the span of continuous quarters. Electives will be formed on the basis of creativity, interest, and speaker availability.

Winter Class Descriptions (class time is 5:30-6:30PM unless otherwise stated):
Sunday Evening Worship Service – This service includes a blended style of music led by Braden McKinley and Jason Shuler will be preaching.
First-Step Class – This class for new converts and prospective new members is designed to overview the heart of Christianity and Triad Baptist’s purpose. To sign up for this class please call the church office at (336) 996-7573.
Second-Step: Models for Disciple Makers – The undeniable truth of scripture is that each one who accepts Jesus Christ as savior is called to make disciples. The unfortunate truth in today’s modern church is that there are few who answer the call. The New Testament is filled with basic (elemental) principles that believers are challenged to live by and teach others to follow, this is called discipleship. The models are far more than just lessons to be learned but rather scriptural truth put into action and modeled. Come and join the call to the work of the church as we look at 26 life models to be lived and shared.
The Leadership Institute (5:15–6:45pm) – The Old Testament Studies course is a survey of the backgrounds and messages of Old Testament books including the practical aspects of the Old Testament canon such as ancient cultures, geography, and the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies. Participants will cover topics including key people, major events, background nations, and faithful prophets. This course would serve as a great refresher and complement to those interested in reading through their Bible next year as well as those teaching Sunday school or who are in lay leadership positions at TBC. The course may be taken for personal enrichment or at an advanced level-your choice. This class will be offered from Piedmont International University (PIU) and can be taken for credit toward a Master’s Degree ($99 per credit hour) or for enrichment ($39 for the course). Couple's discount-with one paying student (master's or enrichment), the spouse can attend at no additional cost for enrichment.
Financial Peace University (5:15-6:45pm) – teaches God's ways of handling money. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more! The registration and course material cost is $93 per couple/individual. Please contact Steve and Dina Coley (firstname.lastname@example.org) 336-880-6525 to sign up, get additional information, or if you want to take the class but need assistance with the registration fee.

I'd Like You More if You Were More Like Me – This is John Ortberg's latest book and one that we'll do a 7-week book study January - February during SNAC. The cost of the book and workbook would normally be $25 but you'll only pay $10 combined for both books! Join us for this book study if you need practical ideas and encouragement for improving your relationships and home and beyond. Led by Shannon Warden, Director of the Life Support Counseling Ministry.

Ever met a deaf person & wished you could speak with them in their language? Have you ever learned sign language in the past & desire to review & sharpen your skills?
