school of life & doctrine

SoLD is our Christian Education ministry. True discipleship occurs when doctrine shapes our life and deepens our confession and our practice. As Paul instructed Timothy: "Keep a close watch on your life and doctrine. Persist in this for by so doing you will save yourself and your hearers." - 1 Tim 4.16

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Sunday evening of the month at Scofield Church (7730 Abrams Rd, Dallas, TX 75231) for dinner and classes. Childcare is provided for ages 0-3 and classes for all ages from children on up. Questions? Contact Alex Dean.

Winter/Spring 2022

Adult Classes

  • Study on the PCA Ad Interim Report on Human Sexuality: Gender and sexuality are current hot topics, and it can be confusing to navigate the cultural conversation in light of biblical and confessional teaching. What does the PCA think about same-sex attraction and transgender issues? How does the Bible help us in both dealing with what it describes as sinful behavior and also loving the culture that embraces it? The PCA’s Ad Interim Committee on Human Sexuality has put out a report to help us embody both truth and love on these matters in our time, as well as to better understand how the Lord is at work in our sanctification. Our SoLD class for the next two semesters will look at this report and seek to apply its helpful teaching in our context. Contact Jim Pocta with any questions. Also, you can view this video, walking through some of the report at last year's general assembly.
