fall semester Awaken Equip Classes launch the week of September 8, 2019!
Equip classes are small, instructor-led classes that encourage and promote spiritual growth and application. Our Equip classes meet at the building and are meant to be an additional resource to help you learn and grow in a specific course of study outside of your small group. Equip classes cover a variety of topics related to Biblical literacy, Christian theology, Finance, Parenting, Marriage and gender specific studies for men and women. These classes will typically run anywhere between 7 and 15 weeks and different classes will be offered each semester.

WHAT ARE Equip classes?
Equip classes are smaller, instructor led classes that encourage spiritual growth and application. This is in order to be better equipped to do the work of local church ministry. These classes last about an hour and a half, following a brief time of introduction and announcements. Equip classes cover a variety of topics related to biblical literacy, Christian theology, finance, parenting, marriage and following Jesus in everyday life.
WHo are equip classes for?
Anyone! Equip classes are suggested for adults of any age, middle and high school students, as well as middle elementary kids. AwakenKIDS programming is provided for middle elementary children (aged 3rd - 5th grade). Equip classes are not only for those already leading at Awaken Church, but for any man or woman looking to grow in his or her faith and knowledge of God’s truths.
WHERE DO equip classes meet?
Equip classes meet at our church building at 171 Newland Rd, Columbia, SC. We feel it is advantageous for our Equip classes to meet at the building in one of our classrooms. This way, we are able to provide a safe place for everyone to learn and grow through these classes and studies. By meeting at our building, we, as a church, can also offer safe childcare options (as needed) for your young ones so that you can have a night of study with your spouse or own your own without the possible distraction of children.
how often are equip classes held?
Equip classes are need-specific classes that are offered throughout the week. Equip classes have expanded into a rhythmic specific format, with classes being offered that cover biblical literacy, parenting, marriage, finance, discipleship, gender specific studies for men & women, as well as studies for students and kids. The rhythmic cycle of these classes continue for the duration of 1 year with a rotation of specific classes to meet the needs of Awaken Church.
IS CHILDCARE AvAILABLE?
While our childcare program is available for varying ages, childcare may not be offered at every Equip class gathering. Childcare offered at each Equip class will depend on the demographics and needs of those who join the study. When childcare is provided for a specific Equip class, you can be sure that your children will be invested in and that our volunteers will help to seek your children grow in their love for Jesus as you are equipped in study.
