Equip Classes exist to equip Grace Hill church for the Work of Ministry and For Building Up the Body of Christ
Equip Classes are our adult education ministry. These classes help us to comprehend the subtle intricacies and overarching truths of our God and the theology, ministry, and history He has authored.
Equip classes are generally offered while our community groups are not meeting (Dec—Jan & June–July). However, the schedule of each class varies. You will have to look at the schedule of each class to determine if it is something you are able to participate in. Each equip class has a definitive start and finish and based upon a topic.
We try to keep every book that needs to be purchased less than $20. If purchasing a book would hinder you from taking the class, please do not let it. Speak to an elder before you allow the cost of a book to deter you from taking an equip class.
Below you will find the available classes, descriptions, schedules, and registration forms.
This class is the exception to the above. This class is offered throughout the year. We offer this class the last Sunday in January, April, July, and October. The dates for 2019 are 1/27, 4/28, 7/28, and 10/27. For now, this is one three-hour class that explains biblical church membership, baptism, and who we are at Grace Hill. The elders at Grace Hill teach this class together.
Anyone is welcome to take this class, but it is required for anyone who is seeking membership at GHC. If you have questions about pursuing membership, please contact one of the elders. Registration is always open for the upcoming class.

III. Gospel-Centered Homes – Gospel Principles that Can Change Your Family
Parenting is hard. In the midst of all the responsibilities we have, many parents feel lost and sense the pressure to do everything “right.” This class will provide parents with a paradigm shift to help them see their ultimate purpose as parents and enable them to parent with joy. This class is taught over the course of eight sessions. It is going to run the first Saturday of every month starting in February-May (first four sessions) and pick back up in August-November (last four sessions). This class will be taught by Spencer Andrews. Registration is now open.

IV. Biblical Theology – Christ-Centered Interpretation
When some hear “biblical theology,” they might assume it is referring to theology that is biblical. While our aim is to always reflect biblical truth, the discipline of biblical theology is tracing the story line and themes of the Bible’s grand story. This class will trace major themes found in the Bible and show how Jesus is at the center of them all! This class will meet for one hour weekly for six sessions. This class will be offered during summer 2019. It will meet on Monday nights. Dates are 6/3, 6/10, 6/17, 7/8, 7/15, 7/22. It will be taught by Lee Callicutt. Registration opens March 2019.
