Sunday Morning 10:00-10:50

Connecting to a Sunday School group offers one of the best means for growing in the faith, enjoying fellowship in the church family, and receiving care during difficult times.

The following paragraphs describe the current groups offered for adults. All groups welcome visitors and new members. We encourage you to visit several classes before settling on one. Choose one that sounds inviting to you and visit it this Sunday!

Due to the constant evolving nature of covid, some groups are not meeting and others meet over zoom.
