Our foundational scripture:
II Timothy 3:16&17
16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
The Adult Discipleship Team oversees Training Ground, Bible Studies, and other opportunities for spiritual growth for the adult population of Greenview Alliance Church. Several years ago, we changed the name of Sunday School to Training Ground to better represent the idea that God’s people should be in training – studying God’s Word, encouraging each other in the faith, and growing together so we are equipped and ready for the good works God has planned for us to do. Classes and studies for Training Ground are prayerfully considered by the team to best meet the needs and foster spiritual growth of our church family. Although the Men’s and Women’s Ministries of Greenview are run by their own leadership, they fall under the oversight of the Adult Discipleship Team.
Training Ground-Sunday Morning starting at 9:15am is offering the following opportunities:
Explore the Bible: Joshua and I Samuel
Two studies in one semester –
Joshua is a six-session study that will encourage you and your group members to trust in God and have faith in His promises. The Book of Joshua illustrates the fact that the Lord gives rest to His people. After the Hebrew people had suffered for four hundred years as slaves in Egypt, God gave them victories in the promised land. But each victory required a step of faith. God’s provision for the people bore witness to later generations of His divinely willed leadership for Israel, and His gracious gift of the promised land demonstrated that the people’s faithful obedience to the covenant could result in abundant blessing.
Beheadings! Greedy, immoral priests! Witchcraft! Murder and intrigue at the highest levels of government! Can you believe these stories are a part of Scripture? They’re here, and sadly, they represent real life in the time of Samuel. Everyone did whatever they wanted—long before that became a modern slogan. Yet God was there too. In one of the darkest periods of Israel’s history, God was working to bring about humanity’s salvation. He quietly gave a desperate, praying, childless woman a son named Samuel, who grew up to become one of the greatest prophets, prayer warriors, and kingmakers in Israel. God then used Samuel to call out a shepherd boy, David, to become Israel’s most beloved king. In all of this, God was pointing to the time He would send His Son, Jesus, to be our Savior and King.
The Gospel Project
The Gospel Project takes men and women on a chronological, Christ-centered journey through the storyline of Scripture. Each week, participants will encounter God’s plan of redemption in Scripture through the study of Bible narrative, the essential doctrines of the faith, and the call to join in God’s mission locally and around the world. This fall, The Gospel Project starts a new three-year cycle, beginning at the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth. This study covers the fall of man, the story of Abraham, and God’s plan to bless the whole world through one broken family. From this family would come the One to restore the goodness of creation and provide for the salvation of the world.

Christ in the Psalms-First and Third Thursday of the month at 10:00am, in the Greenview library
Currently, we are offering a Bible study which meets the first and third Thursday of each month at 10:00 A.M. at Greenview Alliance Church. The study is called Christ in the Psalms and is a study that focuses on the psalms that predict Christ – His coming, His work, His lordship, and His reign as King of Kings. The study is led by Sharon DiStasi and has no defined end date but will probably run through February of 2019.
