God’s desire is that every follower of Christ would be growing and maturing in their faith. The purpose of HGC Adult Education is to provide an environment in which intentional, Biblical-based learning is the focus. Our goal is that all our teaching, learning, and studying would help us in the process of becoming more Christ-like, connecting to others, and serving in our churches, our communities, and around the world.
HGC Adult Education complements the small groups in the church. While some people learn best in the classroom setting of a large class, others may do better in a small group which is more relational and has more accountability. The intention is that everyone will find the way that best helps them to grow and mature.
While there are classes that are going on all the time at our church, there are two formal times where classes are offered.
The first is our Adult Bible Classes on Sunday morning. These classes take place at 10:00 (during the middle service) and cover topics on theology, books of the Bible, to marriage, spiritual growth, and more. Most classes are taking a break for the summer months, but below is the list of classes we will be offering during the fall semester.
The second is our more formal education. Hawthorne Community Bible School is a school where you can come and dive deep into theology and the word of God through each class offered. These classes are taught in two 12-week semesters in the fall and winter. The classes are financed by a freewill offering. A three-year certificate and a four-year diploma may be earned through the church. The new semester will start in September.
In addition, we also have Hawthorne Christian Academy, which is a Preschool – 12th grade, coeducational, college preparatory day school that provides a strong academic program based upon the truths and principles of the Bible.
