Adult Ministries

Would you like to learn from the Bible with a group of friends?  Our small groups or classes are for you!  This year our church is focusing on The Story, a walk through the events and themes of the entire Bible.  You can be part of one of these small groups or classes on Sunday mornings, Wednesday mornings, or Wednesday evenings at the church.  In addition, we have home and church groups that meet at various times during the week to study a variety of other biblical topics.  Consider trying out a group or class for a few weeks.  New groups are offered several times during the year; just look for the insert in the Sunday worship bulletin.

For more information about small groups and classes for adults, contact Pastor Diane.
