Sunday School and Bible Study

Spiritual growth and fellowship for all ages 

 

Join us on Sundays at 9:10 a.m.  Fellowship and refreshments follow at 10:10 a.m. in the Welcome Room (across from the Sanctuary).

Classes are organized based on age clusters and life situations. Bible study involves exploring Scripture in historical context and for meaning and application in every day life, as well. Each group encourages and arranges social activities and opportunities.

 

Sunday School and Bible Study Groups for Adults

You are welcomed to participate in any of our adult Bible study groups, regardless of age or circumstance. The group listing below is a general representation of class characteristics. If you're not sure where to go, look for one of our greeters at the entrances to the sanctuary.

All age ranges are simply suggestions. These suggestions are to help guests and newcomers identify a possible affinity group or a Bible study class whose members are facing similar life challenges. You are invited to visit, discover and join any class that best meets your needs. If none of these meets your needs, let us know; with your help, we will start a new group!
