The foundation of our Adult Ministry is Sunday School. We have a variety of adult classes that are geared around life circumstances and needs. In addition to this we have a variety of discipleship classes that are offered through the week. Most of these are short-term (6-13 weeks). These classes attempt to meet a specific need or life circumstance. Our on-going classes include WEROC (an addiction recovery class), GriefShare (for people who have experienced a loss), and DivorceCare (for people who are separated or divorced). We also have ongoing men’s and ladies’ Bible studies. A current schedule can be found in our Worship Guide or Newsletter.
