Poplar Creek’s Education Department typically runs on a quarterly schedule. Each quarter usually has 6 Wednesday night course offerings and 3 Sunday morning classes to choose from!
SUNDAYS at 9:15a
Prophets, Priests, and the Palace
Room 117/118 | Pastor Rick Painter
Living godly lives seems to be an easy task, but life is filled with ups and downs, nationally and personally. Living godly lives in a broken and fallen world is far from easy. The books of I & II Kings and I & II Chronicles present a story of God’s people on a journey away from God, back to God, and away from God again. Above all, we see in these books the message of God’s faithfulness and patience toward his people even when they are not faithful toward Him.
The Power of the Lord’s Prayer
Room 134 | Tina Schneider
The Apostle Paul exhorted the Philippians to pray in every situation and present their requests to God (Philippians 4:6). Jesus taught His disciples how to pray simply and directly, and we can do the same utilizing His words found in Matthew 6:9–13. As Christians, we know these words as the Lord’s Prayer, but do we really know the POWER of this prayer? Learn how to access the strength and compassion of our Father in heaven, as we go through the Lord’s Prayer.

The Mind of Christ Bible Study
Room 117/118 | Pastor Dana Bonelli & Beth Miller
The Mind of Christ is an in-depth discipleship study that introduces believers to a lifelong process through which God will renew their minds and their lives to reflect the image of Christ. The changes that the Holy Spirit brings in our lives are secret and inward, and they will bear fruit that will be visible in our outer man, in our behavior, actions, and speech. We will be using The Mind of Christ Member Workbook by T.W. Hunt and Claude V. King. You can purchase it at the class. If you have any questions, please call Pastor Dana at 262.385.8471.
The Picture-Perfect Church
Room 132/133 | Pastor Rick Painter
The Church may be more perfect than we think. Paul begins Ephesians with an exalted picture of who Christians are in Christ and ends with a picture of the Church standing victoriously in the armor of God. Between these two pictures, Paul sees the church as a temple, a body, and a bride. Paul does not see a divided church but one fully unified in Christ and the Spirit because the Church does not rest on people, but upon Christ.
Young Adult Bible Study
Room 135 | Andy Romano and others
Poplar Creek Young Adults exist to draw people aged 18–35 closer to the Lord. We do this through discussion and investigation of the Scriptures. We emphasize the need for practical application of biblical truths to be young adult ambassadors for Christ. When you come, you will find great fellowship, fun, and life-changing community.
Room 137 | Heather St. Pierre
A place where mothers can come to relax, talk, and hear about what’s going on with other mothers and how to biblically succeed at parenting.
Room 138 | Jason Maupin
Many men lack clarity about what it truly means to be a man. As a result, they are in a state of confusion. They end up disappointed with life and find themselves lonely and drifting. Here’s the good news: God has a really clear purpose and unique vision for men, and He lays it out for us in His Word. We call it “authentic manhood”. We will be using the Authentic Manhood Training Guide. You can purchase the book at the class.
