Small classes run for adults, teens, older elementary, and young children (age 2 through early readers). Classes meet at 9 a.m. and run until 9:45 a.m.
The adult class follows the same scripture as the day’s Sermon, allowing an in-depth time of study prior to hearing the pastor’s message. The participants have commented that this gives them better insight into God’s Word, and they enjoy the worship time even more when they have the connection points to the earlier study.
The teen class meets in the Youth Lounge, so teens enjoy their lesson and conversation on comfortable couches and overstuffed chairs.
The youngest students meet downstairs in the classrooms after sharing an opening time in song. The songs are often shared in worship as part of the music ministry. The children enjoy a lesson, crafts, games, and space to make some noise.
Seasonally, Bible studies are offered immediately after church, and a light lunch is offered. The studies often include video of nationally known Bible educators and speakers. On the Sundays of Lent a study is offered to bring our focus onto the call of Christ. During late Fall, a study is offered to bring our focus onto the love of God that would bring Emmanuel (God-with-us) to the human condition.
Devotional booklets are provided to encourage individual Bible reading and study. These can be found on the counter in the hallway as you enter the sanctuary.
The pastor can recommend other study materials that will help you to develop your relationship with the Triune God.
