Sunday School Classes

Adult Sunday School class gather together for one hour on Sunday mornings at the church. Topics for Adult Sunday School include books of the bible and other related faith topics. Some Adult Sunday School classes are short term and other classes are ongoing.

Short Term Groups

These groups come together for a specific amount of time for the purpose of doing a short-term study together.  Some studies are 4 weeks long, some 6 weeks, and some as many as 12 weeks. Various topics are explored in short term groups:  parenting, spiritual gifts, books of the bible, stewardship, and other Christian life topics. Most short-term study groups meet at the church once a week.

Life Groups

Life Groups are groups of people that come together with the intention of staying together long term and “doing life together”.  Typically, Life Groups form around being in the same stage of life or a common interest.  Life Groups go beyond Bible study time to genuinely being involved in each other’s lives.  Studies and social activities are chosen by the people in the groups and relate to living out our faith.  Life Groups meet at the church or in homes once a week or every other week.
