Christian Education

Disciples encourage one another in the spiritual disciplines or practices through which we open ourselves to be shaped by God. Those disciplines include prayer, Bible study, worship, stewardship, service, and study of the church's tradition and hospitality to strangers.

  • Sunday School for Adults:
    • "The Present Word" offered at 9:00 a.m. This is a facilitator led study on people in the Bible.
    • "The Bible at 30,000 Feet" offered at 9:00 a.m. This is a DVD study of each book in the Bible.
    • "Let's Walk Together" offered at 10:30 a.m. This is a rotationg class with a different focus each week:
      • First Sunday of the month will be a discussion on prayer and praying.
      • Second Sunday of the month will have a guest speaking on a variety of topics.
      • Third Sunday of the month is a "Sermon Talk Back" where attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions about the current week's sermon.
      • Fourth Sunday of the month will be a discussion explaining Disciples of Chirst beliefs and practices.
      • Fifth Sunday of the month will be relaxation and rejuvenation.
  • Seekers: Middle school youth have the opportunity to learn about what it means to be a member of SCC, a member of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and a member of the Christian faith. The Seekers class allows an atmosphere of questioning and discernment to prepare participants in their decision to be baptized.
  • Disciples Education: Through a series of multiple programs, students learn disciplined Bible study with the goal of becoming leaders.
  • Sunday School classes for pre-school through 12th grade are coordinated so all children learn the same lesson each week. Parents/guardians are sent resources to interact with the lesson during the week.

Outreach

Serving from our doorsteps to the ends of the earth is not just a slogan at SCC, it is a way of life. Our congregation actively supports a wide range of community, national and global outreach ministries:

  • Tapestry Church volunteers visit the Midwest Food Bank monthly to help repackage food for distribution to hundreds of partner agencies. Download the 2017 volunteer schedule
  • Habitat for Humanity: This summer, Tapestry Church partnered with Habitat for Humanity in Johnson County. Fifteen volunteers worked on the roof, siding and painting for a new homeowner in Franklin, Indiana. We also provided breakfast and lunch for everyone working on the home.
  • Week of Compassion works through a remarkable network of church partner organizations and partnerships that insures that our response to humanitarian needs in the world is efficient, effective and faithful. Through these partnerships, Disciples are able to join a tapestry of caring that brings help and hope to hurting people in every corner of the world.
