Fall Class Descriptions
(class time is 5:30-6:30 PM 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 (5:15–6:45 PM)– New Testament Studies, presented by Dr. Jerry Hullinger, is a survey of the background and message of the New Testament books. This course provides the student with the critical information needed to identify major figures, events, and literature which form the basis of our faith. Along with a survey of the New Testament books, material in this course shows Jesus fulfilling roles as Christ, teacher, prophet, redeemer, and high priest. New Testament Studies will equip the student with the ability to understand and explain these tenets of faith as well as defend false ideologies regarding the New Testament. This course starts the week of September 9th and finishes the week of December 9th. For more information, go to www.tbcnow.org/e4-12 or contact Adam Wingate at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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: 45 PM)– 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.

The Best Parenting Class Ever--Parents, you need support! This is it! Join us for this practical and fun 6-week class that starts on September 9. We'll use the book, Things I Wish I'd Known Before We Became Parents, at no charge to you, because Shannon Warden co-wrote that book and is teaching this class. Parents of all-aged children are invited. We'll talk through fresh strategies for dealing with the hard stuff of parenting and celebrate all that's encouraging and good about being a parent. Come for your own benefit and bring friends who could use a boost. Shannon Warden is the Director of the Life Support Counseling Ministry at TBC.
