Sunday School

Each Sunday morning from 10:00am to 10:45am adults meet in small groups called “Sunday school classes” to study the Bible and support one another in their faith journeys.  Each adult Sunday school class has its own unique flavor and way of offering Christian learning opportunities, genuine fellowship and missional outreach.

Any of our pastors can help you decide which class is right for you or you can read our class descriptions and join one on your own.
