“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” | Hebrews 10:24-25
ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES
NEW VISIONS CLASS
An intergenerational Sunday School class—heavier on the 50+ side, but delightfully growing in younger members. We enjoy lively discussion based on Bible-based lessons. While seeking to deepen our knowledge of Scripture, our goal is application to our Christian walk. We value Christian fellowship and humor; we practice both regularly, with quarterly Sunday brunches, an annual Christmas party, and additional fellowship gatherings. Our class participates in and financially supports numerous outreach efforts, including Bean Elementary, St. Benedict’s, Family Promise, the CDC, Disciples Beans, and missions. We believe in giving generously!
Family Life Center, Room 20, 2nd floor.
An open group of mixed age adults, many of whom have children, this class provides a safe, fun place to experience God, learn lessons, and share goals, successes and failures. Michael King, the leader and teacher, presents different chapters from the Bible, sometimes uses videos, and always allows for open dialogue. If you are desiring a smaller, more intimate class that is authentic, honest and raw feelings are sometimes shared, please join us!
