WNC Youth

Youth Ministry Class

Email: Casandra.karl@burks.org

This resource is designed to help students live intentionally for Christ, centering around ten godly characteristics. Each week, students will read what the Bible says about that particular characteristic, and they will be given a challenge to complete by the end of the week. The goal of this study is for youth to gain real-life experience with ten important characteristics of Christian life.

Adult Class Offerings

Handles Messiah

Teacher: Dr. Tony Collins

Email: dr.tony.collins@burks.org

Welcome to an advent series that focuses on the advent portion of Handle's "Messiah,"

During this class, we will listen to sections of the Messiah as we talk about scripture references made in the lyrics. The Messiah has a fascinating history and is often celebrated as one of the most amazing productions of Christian music. Often overlooked is the strong message of the Gospel that is found in the lyrics.

This will be a Zoom class. If you are interested, please email the church office at church@burks.org or text me at 423-536-8840. You don’t have to be a musician or a Bible scholar to enjoy this amazing work. I hope to see you online with Handel beginning on November 11th.

Almost Christmas

Teacher: Rev. Beth Sullivan

Email: Rev.beth.sullivan@burks.org
