Young Adults (College & Career) - Location: RM 211

This class is for those of you ages 18 – early 30′s looking for a class designed just for you. We are a new class just discovering what we have to offer to our young adults. We think outside the box when it comes to learning. Our group is ever evolving to meet the needs of young adults by providing great learning experiences and fellowship.

New Beginnings – Location: Fellowship Hall

The New Beginnings Sunday School Class is a nontraditional class with members of all ages (30s to 60s), couples and singles. We choose books or small group studies to cover in our class and the format is primarily discussion based. Many of our members teach children’s classes every other month so there is plenty of flexibility in the class each week. Some of the studies that we have enjoyed include “Old Testament from the Backside”, “Proverbs: God’s Answers to Today’s Problems”, “Jeremiah and Lamentations”, “Christmas from the Backside”, and “Yes, Lord, I Have Sinned But I have Several Excellent Excuses.” We gather for class between 9:45 and 10:00 in the church fellowship hall every Sunday morning. Please join us.

Truth Seekers

The Truth Seekers is a class of men and women seeking God’s truths through Bible study with an emphasis on application in our daily lives. Co-teachers alternate the leading of each week’s Bible study and group discussion. Class members also readily work together, meeting the needs that arise in the church and community. All are welcome!

Faith

We welcome men and women, with no age limit. We have a small group approach to teaching in a way where we all participate in the leading of lessons. Our literature is David C Cook’s Through the Bible in Eight Years. Our mission is for each member to become more knowledgeable about the Bible. We have a great fellowship, and we participate when there is a need in the church. We all love our class, and we welcome new members!

Disciples

Through bible study and sharing God’s word our mission is to share Christ with others by visitation and prayer. Not only telling them we love them, but by showing them love. Our class is involved with meals on wheels, and we also work with the Celestial class on other projects.

Celestial

We are a group of loving, caring, mission-oriented prayer warrior women. As literature for our Sunday school class, we use Smyth and Helwys Adult Formations material. We use a varied teaching style using in-depth attention to the scripture passages incorporating contemporary stories, examples, and illustrations. There is also encouragement of class discussion to bring knowledge, personal experience, and deep reflection to help adult women find the relevant connections between their lives and the biblical message. The truths we discover help us recognize how God is calling us toward change, renewal, commitment, or action. We also do outreach by helping at the homeless shelter and nursing homes. We also do a Christmas needs project each year.
