ADULT CLASSES

One of the ways we fulfill our mission to love God, love each other, and serve the world is to gather for Sunday worship. Another way is to meet in smaller groups such as classes and house churches on Sundays, Wednesdays, and throughout the week. Whatever your age or schedule, there is a class where you can connect with others who share your passion for God.
