2nd Hour Classes

What are 2nd Hour Classes?

2nd Hour is Rush Creek’s version of Sunday School! It is an opportunity to come together with our brothers and sisters in Christ to study God’s Word and grow in our understanding of what it says and how we can apply it to our lives. 2nd Hour gives us a chance to ask tough questions, wrestle with difficult passages, and engage one another in dialogue and discussion in a way that would never be possible during our Morning Worship Service and Sermon.

Is there a specific 2nd Hour class for my age group or can I simply choose one to go to?

While we always encourage newcomers to check out our Rush Creek Connect class first, we want you to find a class that interests you, and if it isn’t the right fit feel free to try a different one! Our hope is that you will ultimately find a class that challenges you in your faith, encourages you to search the Scriptures, and helps you feel more connected to the community of Rush Creek and to our great God!

Where do the 2nd Hour Classes meet and what is each class about?

Gathering Grounds  Fireside

Pastor Phil Long teaches this class which focuses on relevant topics and issues from a biblical perspective. Gourmet coffee and treats as well as fellowship and new friends are an important part of this class.

Greater Prospects  Pastor Gene’s Office

This class meets to study God’s Word, pray for and encourage each other, and have fun! It often uses video-based material from noted Christian leaders and teachers. This class is facilitated by Pastor Gene Pearson.

Friendship & Fellowship  The End Zone – East

Each week includes a time of intercessory prayer for the needs of our families and church. We then enjoy Bible study led by Tim Conklin. In recent years, our lessons have included expository, topical, and biographical studies, all intended to enrich and equip us to become more like Jesus Christ. Everyone is welcome!

Young Adults  The Edge

This class is for anyone who is post-high school, whether you are going to college or have already entered into a career. Come join Jerry Ruiz as we engage in meaningful discussions concerning current events and relevant topics in our culture and what Scripture has to say about them.

Faithful Families – The Cove – Harbor Rooms

This class was formed by families who are dedicated to the small group concept and seeks to draw people together toward a common core of interests. It is a fun and caring group of married couples in their 20’s, 30’s, and early 40’s with children ranging in age from preschool to early Jr. High. We are committed to the enhancement of the family through prayer, Scripture, and family/child-rearing related studies.
