Through Sunday School, adults at Goochland Baptist seek God's direction for their homes, their families, their jobs, and their communities. We strive to grow deeper in our relationship with Christ through service, prayer, and study of Scripture.
On Sunday mornings at 10:45 am, we have five different Sunday School Classes for adults all located in the New Building, except the Agape Class, which is located in the West Wing of the Sanctuary Building:
Fellowship Class - led by David Angel and Jessica Stanley
Book Study: The Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri Nouwen
The themes of homecoming, affirmation, and reconciliation will be newly discovered by all who have known loneliness, dejection, jealousy, or anger. The challenge to love as God loves, and to be loved as God’s beloved, will be seen as the ultimate revelation of the parable known to Christians throughout time, and is here represented with a vigor and power fresh for our times.
Open Class – led by Lynn Hayes
The Walk – Five Essential Practices of the Christian Life.
Deepen your walk with Christ as we explore the five essential practices of worship, study, serving, giving and sharing our faith. Each Sunday, we will watch a short DVD lesson (12-14 minutes max) on each of the essential practices, presented by Adam Hamilton, pastor and author of The Walk, followed by class discussion.
New Class - Led by Wayne Melton
Verse-by-verse Bible Study: Matthew
Senior Adults - led by John Webb
Book Study: Ask the Pastor by Gordon Magee
Ask the Pastor is a compilation of hundreds of articles Pastor Gordon Magee wrote for the Friday edition of the Lakeland Times newspaper in Minocqua, Wisconsin when he was Senior Pastor at Faith Evangelical Free Church. These Ask the Pastor articles were written with a focus on helping people who aren't yet Christians understand that the Bible makes sense and Jesus is who he says he is. Its answers are a great help to Christians as well.
Agape Class - led by Gwen Padgett
Book Study: The Book of Revelation Made Clear, by Tim LaHaye & Timothy Parker
Located in the West Wing of the Sanctuary Building
Filled with complex imagery, vivid depictions of violence, and challenging spiritual references, Revelation is often set aside by readers in favor of more straightforward, easier-to-digest biblical material. This book covers the book of Revelation verse-by-verse and adds LaHaye’s and Parker’s interpretations.
