Don't worry, all the good stuff at our church isn't just for the under 18 crowd! We offer two Sunday morning study classes for adults of any age. These two groups are open to anyone that wishes to attend. The studies in each group changes about every 6-8 weeks based upon decisions in what the group wishes to learn. These studies could be in video form or a book. No matter which group you choose you will learn more about God and grow in your Christian journey of faith and love. Young or old, single or married, man or woman - we've got a place for you!
