Adult Ministries

Would you like to learn from the Bible with a group of friends?  Our small groups are for you!  We offer a wide variety of topics relating the Bible to everyday life as you get to know people at a deeper level.  You can be part of a small group on Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings at the church.  We also have home and church groups that meet at various times during the week.  Consider trying out a small group for a few weeks.  New groups are offered several times during the year; just look for the insert in the Sunday worship bulletin.

We also offer traditional Sunday Bible classes at 10:45 am, following the traditional worship service.  Make new friends as you study the Bible together!

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