Adult discipleship classes are a time our community sets aside in order to plunge deeper into the “what” and “how” of living in God’s Kingdom. Taking time to submit ourselves in study under God’s Word is part of how the Spirit transforms us more in Jesus’ image by seeking the renewal of our minds.

Because we desire to study God’s Word as disciples of Jesus, not as disinterested religious students, our goal is that we would not simply walk away having acquired more information about God, but rather walk away having our hearts pierced by God’s gracious Word (Hebrews 4:12) with a greater vision for following Jesus in his Kingdom.

Gifted teachers bring to life the beauty of God’s word in an environment where relationships are built and people are able to interact in a conversational and relaxed setting. As we engage with God and his word in community with one another, we invite the Holy Spirit to come and renew our minds, reorder our priorities and reshape our habits around the person and work if Jesus Christ.

Sunday Mornings

Taught by Dustin+ Freeman, Robert+ Cook and David Young  |  Andrew Room  |  January 28–April 28

Are you new to St. Andrew’s? This class is for you! Everyone is welcome to attend this edition of the Newcomers’ Class as we learn what Anglicans believe, the history, vision and values of St. Andrew’s and explore how discipleship and liturgy function as the foundation for experiencing God’s transformative grace in everyday life.

Taught by Victor+ Sheldon | Commons  |  January 28–May 19

Join Victor Sheldon, a recently retired Navy Chaplain with long ties to both Little Rock and St. Andrew’s, for an in depth and interactive study in St. Paul’s letter to the Philippians. The focus of the class will be on living life with joy—joy in the midst of difficult circumstances, joy in dealing with difficult people, and yes, even joy in times of difficult suffering. Our spiritual journey with Christ is often experienced as “three steps forward, and two steps back”.  But, when we see our life through the lens of faith, then we can genuinely join with Paul in “forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus”. 

Taught by David Young | Mary & Martha Room  |  April 7–May 19

To more faithfully live into the call expressed in Psalm 78 “to tell the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might and the wonders he has done…so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments…,” this class will share more of the history of God’s provision in the start of St. Andrew’s Church. It promises to be a time of personal encouragement in your own walk of faith as well as an inspiration to continue to trust God with the future of St. Andrew’s Church. 

During the Week


Last Sunday of the month  |  6:30 p.m.  |   Commons

Insights, a book club that began at St. Andrew’s almost 20 years ago, delves into reading and interacting with classical Christian literature such as works by CS Lewis, Augustine and Luther. The reading material is chosen by the group, which meets once a month. The 2023/24 session begins on Sunday, September 24, at 6:30 p.m. in the Commons. 

This season, we’ll be discussing the Apostle Paul’s signature term—In Christ. It occurs about 200 times in his epistles and contain the essence of his understanding of our faith In Christ. Without understanding Paul’s meaning, we cannot fully grasp the transformative power we have as believers In Christ. 

The first meeting will provide an introductory overview of the concept along with the study procedure for the major passages. Each following session will focus on one of these key passages through a brief study sheet, followed by open discussion in the group to unpack the rich aspect related to our In Christ life.
