And he went throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction among the people. So his fame spread throughout all Syria, and they brought him all the sick, those afflicted with various diseases and pains, those oppressed by demons, epileptics, and paralytics, and he healed them. Matthew 4:23-24
Our small group adult Bible study classes start at 10 AM on Sundays and are just one of the teaching moments at Sedge Fen Baptist. In addition, this ministry performs vital functions in the life of the church. These functions include reaching out to the community, teaching God’s Word, ministering to fellow believers and non-believers, and connecting people to ministry.
Home Builder Groups
These classes are the hub of our church outreach efforts. In our HBG’s, we pray for unbelievers, hold one another accountable for sharing the Gospel, and organize to connect with those who have visited our church or are in our personal sphere of influence. All of our Sunday morning classes are open groups, meaning that new folks are welcome to join and become a part at any time. These groups are designed to be less structured open to sharing and promoting intimacy. Our HBG’s can be the bridge for bringing those outside Christ into a ‘less threatening’ atmosphere where they see the family of God in a different light. It is these groups where they often discard preconceived ideas and myths about the body of Christ. Today our society is looking for the kind of community connectedness and the opportunity to form close-knit relationships that these groups provide.
Children’s Sunday School
The purpose of Children’s Sunday School is to provide an open and energetic environment with committed and passionate teachers centered on biblical curriculum, presented on an age appropriate level, with the goal of aiding parents in constructing a biblical worldview in their children in order to equip each child to live for the supreme glory of God.
- Nursery: Infants begin in Baby “A” class. Babies who are crawling are cared for in Baby “B” class. Toddlers are cared for in the Baby “C” class. Children in the Nursery are promoted as they develop. So please advise your child’s teachers as he develops.
- Preschool: Children ages 1 through 4 are promoted each year with their curriculum the first Sunday in September. Each child is moved forward according to their birth date that he may be in an age appropriate environment. Promotion Sunday is a special event, so don’t worry, we will remind parents each year.
- Grade-school: Children in grades 1 through 5 are promoted in the same manner as Preschool Children. Parents please encourage your 5th grade children not to hurry through life. They will be youth age soon enough. Bending the rules benefits no one.
