Sunday School (9:15-10:15)
Jesus, however, said, “Let the little children come to me, and stop keeping them away, because the kingdom of heaven belongs to people like these.” Matt. 19:14
Providing the most loving environment for our little bundles of joy. After all, they are a blessing and a gift from our Lord Jesus.
Giving a strong biblical foundation at an early age is imperative. We do it with lots of love and fun. Our children are hungry for the nourishment of God.
We focus on guiding our youth to be strong future leaders of our church. What they learn now will follow them for the rest of their lives.
Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for man. Col. 3:23
Mission Statement: To provide a welcoming environment where we can grow in Christ and learn from each other while we work alongside our church, reaching out and ministering to our community.
Class Description: We are a group of young and middle age (30+) adults that fellowship by studying God’s Word, sharing life experiences, and ministering to each other. The atmosphere is informal and open with lots of humor. The Connections Class enjoys serving together in church functions and occasional social outings. Oh, and yes we enjoy breakfast during our Sunday School hour.
College and Career;
The college and career class meets on Sunday mornings at 9:30. We try to be very purposeful about talking about real life subjects in our lessons and applying those lessons to our every day lives. We enjoy lots of discussion as well as getting deep in God's Word. I don't want Sunday School answers in my class, I want us to figure out how to get God's Word to invade every part of who we are and truly change us from the inside out.
Senior Ladies 1;
We are a lively bunch of women that enjoy life to its fullest. Come join us as we dive deep into God’s Word.
Senior Ladies 2;
Learning and growing in the Lord is what we do best. We enjoy each other, support each other, and love the Lord.
Senior Adult Class;
Loving the Lord with all your heart, mind, and soul is important to us. Let us help lead the way.
We are a group of ladies that learn and grow together in a Christ-like manner. We would love to have you join us.
