Our emphasis is on Christian education, which helps prepares us to serve Christ in the world around us. In addition to weekly services, adults will typically have seven different educational opportunities to choose from on Sunday mornings. Most classes run from September to late May at 9 a.m. Some adult classes continue during the summer.
