Adult Sunday School

Our Sunday School Ministry is specifically designed to provide a systematic and practical study of God’s Word – relevant and applicable to every age level.

In addition, our caring communities provide a place for fellowship and community – an opportunity to connect, share and pray for one another and for the church. Our Sunday School classes also provide a great way for newcomers to feel a sense of belonging and to be incorporated into the life and ministry of the church. We desire for every member to be connected to a caring community in order to experience true fellowship through relationship-building, prayer, and the caring provided in times of crisis and need. If you need assistance in finding a class to meet your needs, please let us know.

Sunday School meets at 9:45 a.m. in various rooms across the church campus.  There are fifteen adult classes offered for various ages and stages of life.
