Ten classes meet each Sunday, for a variety of Bible studies and life-centered learning activities.
Classes are formed according to “stages of life.” People at different stages of life often share similar experiences. These common interests become a basis for friendship, support, growth, and outreach. Some adult classes have regular socials.The goal of all of our adult classes is to be a place where God’s Word is learned, Christian friendship is fostered, and service is encouraged. Participation in groups like these is vital to our growth in Christ.
