Adult Sunday School Options

There are three options this year for adults to choose from.

Women’s Class

(Meets in the small room by the pastor study) Need some weekly fellowship? Join us as we share our lives, pray together and discuss scriptural truth. This year we will be reading and discussing the book, "Unoffendable" by Brant Hanson.
Contact: Becky Meyer

Mixed Adults Class

(Meets in the gym) We aren’t the first believers to live in a pluralistic society. The book of Judges describes the experience of the Israelites as they lived in Canaan’s pluralistic society. We will follow a discussion guide from Pastor Tim Keller of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in NYC as we seek to better live in our pluralistic society. Come to our table to see a sample of one of the study guides for the book of Judges.
Contact: Pete Meyer

Mixed Adults Class

(Meets in the Fellowship Hall) Have you had a chance to watch the series The Chosen? The Chosen is based on the life of Jesus and portrays Him through the eyes of those who met Him. This class is geared to the under 50 crowd and will include discussion time after the video. (video based) Contact: Mark Johnson
