Sunday School | 2018-2019
As a church we must be intentionally and systematically teaching, training, modeling the gospel (the good news of Jesus Christ's work on the cross to save sinners and bring God glory). It is the vision of our church, as Colossians 1:28 says, "to present everyone mature in Christ."
The purpose of Sunday School is to provide an opportunity on Sunday morning for men, women and children to meet and to hear of God's plan of salvation and to deepen their understanding of God's Word. Classes are open to anyone who wants to know more about God and his activity in the world and in the lives of people. Classes are offered for 7-8 weeks at a time, and can be wonderful opportunities to grow in faith and to meet other Christ-followers. Class offerings and links to signup are provided below!
[The 9:00 AM hour includes onsite Nursery Care and Children's and age-oriented Youth Sunday School Classes for K-12. Contact Elizabeth Deakin for more information.]
