Adult Discipleship Class
All Ages | Sundays 9am - 10:15am| Ongoing - no classes on holiday weekends| Education Building | No Cost

9 am Teachers: Guy & Alicia Evans, Britt & Arlana Peterson, Brad Owen & Roundtable
An ongoing class for all adults, from young to old! Discipleship cannot be contained in a Bible study or class, it calls us into a lifestyle of faith in Jesus and his finished work which expresses itself in love. Discipleship is about growing in our dependence on Jesus, our interdependence as his church and loving others in weakness. Come be refreshed as we get to know each other, tell and listen to stories, pray for one another, explore Scripture and dive into the many realities and practicalities of everyday life from a uniquely gospel-centric perspective.

Miracles - For Real? (Women Only)

Teachers: Christy Lafferty & Mary Dean Beland
All women 18 and up are invited to join us Sunday mornings as we study a miracle each week and explore together what it means for us in our everyday lives. How might this truth change how we see God, how we pray, how we see suffering and how we love others?

Becoming Family (New Members Class)

This class is held weekly, during the first service hour on Sundays. Meet in the church lobby to find a listing of all the classes and where they're meeting each week. If the group is closed it means we're full this season, but don't worry – this class starts up again every 3 months.
