WCF Sunday School Week 1: Syllabus and Notes

As promised (to my class), I've posted links to the class syllabus and my lecture notes for my adult Sunday School class on the Westminster Confession of Faith, below. Since we were pressed for time, you will find more information in the notes than I was able to cover in class this morning. Also, note that all the posts on my blog that are related to this class will be tagged with the "Westminster Confession of Faith Sunday School Class" tag for easy tracking.

For all the rest of you reading, I hope you find the information below helpful.
