Poplar Creek’s Education Department typically runs on a semester schedule. Each semester usually has 6 Wednesday night course offerings and 3 Sunday morning classes to choose from!
SUNDAYS at 9:15a
Promises of God
Rooms 134 | Ruth St. Pierre
Offered Sundays in May and June
God’s Word holds an abundance of promises for the believer! Please come and join us as we declare, study, and discuss these promises. Participation is encouraged by all who attend.
Rooms 134 | Tina Schneider
Offered Sundays in July and August
A lot of people believe (or say they believe) in God, but they don’t try to get to know Him or even understand that it’s possible to have a true friend in Jesus. They come to church, listen to sermons, and read their Bibles to learn about God, without realizing the value of knowing Him as the most important and faithful friend we can ever have (Proverbs 18:24). In this class, we will talk about going beyond believing in God to developing a relationship with Him.
Contemporary Issues and the Church
Rooms 117 & 118 | Pastor Rick Painter
There are a number of theological and social issues confronting Christians and the Church. The leadership of the Assemblies of God has produced 26 position papers to help Christians think about a biblical response to these issues. These topics range from theological topics like the inerrancy of the Bible, divine healing, demon possession, hell, and the rapture of the Church to current social issues such as alcohol, gambling, gender identity, divorce and remarriage, abortion, suicide, and euthanasia. This class is a discussion-oriented class. Everyone is welcome.
How To Join
Rooms 139 | Jim Smart and Ron Salava
At Poplar Creek Church, we want to help you become a greater part of the living, growing body of Christ! Church can be a place where real people join together to grow in Christ! Don’t miss out as we learn about the godly sense of community that God has planned for his Church. The class meets the 2nd and 3rd Sundays of each month, except December. Attendance is required at both sessions. Please register here.
WEDNESDAYS at 6:30p
Rooms 138 | Dan St. Pierre
A place where fathers can come to relax, talk, and hear about what’s going on with other fathers and how to biblically succeed at parenting.
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.
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.
Love and Law
Rooms 132 & 133 | Pastor Rick Painter
The laws in the book of Deuteronomy come from a loving God who wants His people to experience a full, abundant life. Deuteronomy was very significant for various people. It was quoted three times by Jesus during his temptations; it was very prominent among the Dead Sea Scrolls, and it is one of the most-quoted books in the New Testament. It still has significance for the church today.
Forgiving What You Can’t Forget
Room 139 | Pastor Dana Bonelli
In this DVD series, Lysa TerKeurst shares her own deeply personal journey with forgiveness and what the Bible has to say about letting go of resentment and finding peace. You’ll learn a step-by-step plan to free yourself from hurt, disempower triggers that hijack your emotions, deal with difficult relationships, and discover the life-giving freedom your soul desperately needs. Sessions include: “What am I supposed to do with all the hurt?,” “The compounding effect of unforgiveness,” and “This isn’t easy, but it is good.”
