We have a number of adult Sunday School classes and small group studies that meet during the school year. Groups for men, women, and mixed groups meet at various times throughout the week. With the exception of the Men's Breakfast Group, our groups and classes are taking a summer break and will resume in September. Contact the church office for details.
The Bible Project The Bible Project is a non-profit animation studio that produces short-form, fully animated videos to make the biblical story accessible to everyone, everywhere. Their mission is to help the whole world see the Bible as one unified story that leads to Jesus, who has the power to change individuals and whole communities when we let the biblical story speak for itself. They see the Bible as a divine-human book that speaks God’s word to his people. In each session we will watch a short video and discuss the material presented. Each session stands alone, so feel free to drop in as you are able. We have a number of groups that meet at various times during the week and on Sunday mornings. Contact the church office for more information.
The Wired Word is designed for all those who wish to grow in their faith by applying Scripture to the current events in our world. Each Thursday, a new lesson, drawn from that week's headlines, is sent via e-mail to class members. In class, we discuss how God's Word can inform and help us see with new eyes what is going on in our world each week and how faith matters. The class meets Sunday at 9:15 a.m. in the church library during the school year.
