This fall our Sunday Night Adult Classes will feature seven areas of study. Our classes will be twelve weeks in length, and they will continue through October 22, 2017.
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.

Fall Class Descriptions:
Investing for Heaven - Heart, Hands, Home – Investing our time has the greatest return when we make deposits in our home. During the next few weeks we will look at principles of the heart and the hand (work). ***THIS CLASS WILL MOVE TO THE WORSHIP CENTER BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 10.
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 to 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 – 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). The class topic for this session is Apologetics, where participants learn to present, explain, and defend their Christian faith in a global environment. The entire program has 10 courses. Each course is comprised of 12, professionally filmed, 45-minute video classes that will be streamed into the classroom. Registration for credit or enrichment may be done online at http://www.piedmontu.edu/e4-12-course-apologetics or by calling Mr. Terrill Gilley at PIU (336-714-7925). To register online, please list Triad Baptist as the hosting organization and Adam Wingate as the host organization's contact. Class will begin September 10. (5:15 – 6:45pm)
Knee Warriors (ladies only) – Continuing an inductive Bible study in the book of Ephesians.
Marriage Menders – The Five Love Languages is our Marriage Menders' focus this fall. The 5LL has changed millions of relationships for the better. Come and learn about the 5LL, or if you're already familiar with the concept, get ready to apply the 5LL with new motivation and creativity. We'll use video clips, discussion, and fun activities to help you give your relationship a boost. We'll also cover the 5LL and parenting over the course of the fall. So, parents, whether single or married, this class is for you, too! Folks interested in training to be a part of the Life Support Counseling Ministry can also count this class as part of their training. No books or fees. Class facilitated by Shannon Warden, Director of Counseling at TBC.
Ministering through Sports – If you want to have a lasting impact on a kid’s life through sports, then this class is for you. Triad offers basketball, cheering, color guard, football, and soccer via the Upward platform. This class covers Triad’s history and vision for Upward Sports and your will to help shape the future of ministry through sports. It’s more than coaching, officiating, and concessions. It’s about reaching kids for Christ with something as simple as a ball.
