Adult Ministry

9:15–10:15 a.m

Adults may choose from several different classes during the Sunday school hour

The classes are diverse in their approach to teaching and in the curricula they choose. Each class attempts to meet the individual and corporate needs of its members through study and fellowship. Many classes engage in mission projects and are active in ministry outside the class time. Our overall goal is to provide an environment of lifelong learning that enables adults to mature in faith, deepen relationships, and learn to invest their God-given gifts in ministry. We want to assist you in finding a class which meets your needs and in which you can grow and serve.

If you have questions, contact Matt Rollins.
