Our Adult Education committee is actively pursuing ways for our congregation to stay connected, and learn, through small groups, new classes, and incorporating technology. Stay tuned for further developments, and if you have an interest in helping in this effort, please contact committee chairperson Elder Cari Newton.
Adult Sunday School Opportunities
Sundays at 9:50am – learning together!
All classes welcome new participants!
Come grow in your faith and in your relationships with others! The casual, drop-in format of this group centers around the biblical principles of hospitality and fellowship modeled by the early Christian community.
Each Sunday morning we share a light breakfast provided by members of the class, juice, water, tea, and freshly-brewed coffee!

Bible 101 – NEW for 2017
Perfect for those who have never been to a Sunday school class, are a new church member or new to the Christian faith; and for those who want to grow spiritually and feel they need to learn some basics to get started. The class will explore who God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are; discuss the meaning of baptism, the Lord’s Supper, and terms like forgiveness, resurrection and life everlasting. We will also survey the Old and New Testaments to give each student a basic understanding of the scriptures that shape our faith. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
Please email your interest to Gary Wires so we can have the correct amount of resources on hand.

This is the fourth year in the ongoing Disciple Bible Study curriculum. This years’ Disciple study concentrates on the Old Testament Writings, with an emphasis on the Psalms as Israel’s hymn and prayer book. As this is a more in-depth Bible study, some knowledge of the Bible is helpful if you would like to join this class. New members are welcome.

This is a study and fellowship group for families with children, infant through 5th grade. The group meets so parents may fellowship, learn about, and share the joys and challenges of raising children to know and love Jesus. We will use the same Bible stories and verses the children are studying to consider how we can extend these important lessons throughout the week in our homes.
This group also has occasional social and mission events outside of Sunday morning time.
