Classes for the children provide an opportunity to study Bible doctrines in a manner that the children find interesting and relevant and/or Bible stories with application in a survey which teaches the big picture of the Bible.

Adult Classes — 10 am every Sunday

Our early classes emphasize the believer’s relationship with God, the application of biblical principles to daily life, and effective Christian service. Plans for 2018 include a study of Pilgrim’s Progress as well as a variety of video presentations on creation, church life, and current cultural issues. A missions presentation is given on the third Sunday of each month, in conjunction with our monthly missions emphasis Sunday.

Other Fellowship Opportunities

The third Sunday of every month we enjoy a shared lunch and fellowship following our services.  This is a great time to visit informally with anyone in our church family.  There is always plenty of food.  We also periodically enjoy a movie evening when we watch and discuss a Christian movie.  Teen camps and retreats as well as men’s and ladies retreats are enjoyed annually.
