Adult Sunday School Classes

God calls us to be in community with one another so we might be equipped to be an influence to others. By interacting with others in our church family we challenge each other, learn from one another and become stronger in our faith as followers of Christ. We hope you will take time to visit several classes and find where you connect best.


Join us at 9:45 AM each week for Sunday School.
