Our mission is to provide men and women opportunities and resources so that they may be grounded in the Word of God, grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ, and be transformed into Kingdom disciples. (Luke 2:52; II Peter 3:18; Romans 12:2; and Psalm 1)
Spring Adult Sunday School | March 10th – May 26th
Dare To Sing
“God! Why do you stand around with your hands in your pockets when there’s work to do?” If you think this question is a little irreverent, you haven’t read the Psalms. These ancient songwriters said things that shock us today; perhaps we need to develop a holy boldness with God? Join us this fall as we look at the Psalms together. Taught by Melvin Manickavasagam & Steve Redding; first classroom on the left of the Sanctuary.
What does true Christian faith look like under pressure? The church has often responded either by pulling back into its own community, or by conforming to the culture around it. Does the Bible provide us a different pattern for living? Join us and find out as we study through epistles of Peter. Taught by Clay Dabbs with Philip Levy; meeting in the Annex.
