Education

Adult Sunday School

Our congregation is blessed with many gifted persons who are willing to invest their time and energy in leading Sunday school classes. We also try to have relevant, thought-provoking studies. At any given time we offer two or three adult Sunday School electives. Typically this is the “Standard Lesson Adult Bible Study”, one or two other elective studies, and one young adult class.

Current Winter Quarter Classes:
1.  “Our Love for God”
Unit 1: God Commands Our Love, Respect, and Obedience
Unit 2: Loving God by Trusting Christ
Unit 3: Love Songs that Glorify God

   Each week centers on a specific Scripture. Discussion questions are provided. Multiple teachers will be leading throughout the quarter.

2.  “We are a community, rooted in Christ…” (Two-part class)
Part 1: The Sunday School hours will provide time to share with each other. Bring your own devotional from home or pick up a book at our swap the first week.

Part 2: 8 sessions to identify your personal mission by exploring your God-given fits and passions.

3.  Young Adult Class – for post high school to young adult ages.

Library

The congregation has been very generous in making our library a priority and works to keep it well stocked. It is a resource of relevant literature from the most recent publications to many classic books and audio visual resources.
