Our Sunday School communities are learning hubs where the truth of God's Word is taught and applied together. Each semester, we offer a wide selection of C.O.R.E. classes for our Sunday School communities.  We offer C.O.R.E. classes in the areas of Christian living, Orthodoxy, Reach (Mission), and Exposition.

YOUTH: 
7th Grade (Youth House Room #320)
Led by April Weber & Levi Martin
TOPIC: Basic Christian Beliefs
Students will examine and study the essentials of Christian theology and in doing so will learn about the characteristics of God, being created in the image of God, what God has done for us in Christ, the purpose of the church, and much more. 

8th Grade (Youth House Room #321)
Led by Marc Jantomaso and John Nekrasov

TOPIC: Gospel Foundations
The gospel is the central message of the Bible and the primary word of Christianity. From Genesis to Revelation, we see a narrative of human sin and failure, alongside divine mercy and redemption. This study is designed to help students articulate the gospel accurately and in terms of grace. 

9th & 10th Grade (Youth House Room #324)
Led by Moose & Carrie Pierce and Earl Weaver
TOPIC:Old Testament, Messianic Prophecies

Students will learn about the connection between the Old and New Testaments and the unity of the Bible. Most of the Old Testament texts focus on the predictions related to the coming Messiah of God, who will redeem the world, fulfilled in the work and person of Jesus. Students will get a picture of the Old Testament’s messianic expectation in its fullest sense.

11th & 12th Grade (Youth House Room #322)
Led by Pastor Shane and Laura Whelan
TOPIC:Ephesians

The letter to the Ephesians shows that Christ is the cornerstone of His promised new temple, a temple that is no longer a place, but a people. This new identity for God's church changes everything. In Christ, all of God's people now have access to every spiritual blessing and have been called to a new life. Students will learn through this new life, the church is now a present reflection of God's coming kingdom.

YOUNG ADULTS:
     • College Hour will meet in the Campus Outreach House at 2436 Rivermont    Avenue
     • 20 Somethings+ will meet in the Fellowship Hall room A.

  2. Adult Class: 1 Thessalonians
    Location: Discipleship Wing #206  

When the Gospel comes to us in Word and the power of the Holy Spirit, it not only transforms individuals but whole churches and communities. When the Gospel broke through the church in Thessalonica, it says that it transformed this community so greatly that the Word of the Lord sounded out far and wide and their faith in God went forth everywhere. Come join us as we study this letter and seek to be transformed by this message of the Gospel as we live it out in all areas of life.

  4. Adult Class: Know the Creeds
    Room: The Chapel

Why do worshipers at Rivermont EPC recite ancient creeds each Sunday? What purpose do they play in discipling believers? Answering these questions involves understanding why the creeds were written in the first place and how they offered positive alternatives to power heresies. By doing so, this class emphasizes how our faith and church community can be strengthened by “knowing” the creeds.
Leaders: Carey Roberts, Ken Bradford, Scott Amos, Bruce Bell
