SUNDAY SCHOOL | SUMMER CLASSES

A maturing disciple is someone who has said “yes” to God’s love in Jesus Christ and has become an apprentice of Jesus. Our apprenticeship is a lifelong journey of transformation to become like Jesus through the Spirit, growing to love the Triune God above all else and loving others and creation as Jesus does. While discipleship cannot be limited to a program, there are ways that we can order our lives together and individually that will create room for the Holy Spirit to transform us. We call these the “building blocks” of discipleship: education, community, practices, and joining God’s mission.

NEW TO CLASS?

We are so glad to welcome you!  All classes are welcome to visitors anytime.  Below is a description of our current classes.  We also have spring and fall short-term classes which change each season so be on the lookout for additional classes.

>If you are coming to an in-person class, enter through the side doors of Building A (sanctuary building) which are right off the parking lot between the buildings. Through these doors is the Gallery, where an information desk is located.  A greeter will be at the desk who can direct you to your class.
