Room 104 – 1st floor near the Childcare Center
The Discovery Class seeks to provide members and guests with opportunities for spiritual growth through a long term and comprehensive study of the Bible. The class has studied the books of the Old Testament, the gospels, and is currently studying the letters of Paul. Class instruction and discussions focus on what the scripture says, what it means, and how it applies to our daily lives. In the process, members draw close to each other through fellowship and prayerful support of one another. Everyone is invited and welcome.
Friends in Faith
Room 103 – 1st floor near the Childcare Center
The Friends in Faith class is a group of adults interested in building a closer relationship to God through study of scripture, development of a rich prayer life, and nurturing each other in the faith. Recent topics of discussion have included: Living simply (using the book “Enough: Discovering Joy through Simplicity and Generosity), the Ten Commandments and the Pauline letters and lessons from the early church. Class discussions are lively and thought provoking. Members are encouraged to share prayer concerns and pray together. The current age range of the class is fairly broad (Forty-somethings and up), but all are welcome.
On November 12, 2017 the class will begin a new 6-week series entitled “Following Jesus Today: Challenges and Opportunities.” The editor of the series asks…”What does it mean to follow Jesus today? Following Jesus today brings challenges and opportunities – in our personal lives and for the church.” The 6 sessions (discussions) are: Words and Deeds, The Embrace of God, Worshiping God by Walking Backwards, What is Truth?, Show and Tell, and A Costly Commitment to Love. Each session is a stand-alone discussion so do not worry if you cannot make it one week. The series will conclude on December 17.

Room 207 – 2nd floor, next to the pre-school Sunday school class and nursery
In the words of Donald Miller, “When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.” We are a group that is admittedly, unabashedly flawed. We enjoy getting together for open and relaxed discussions about balancing our hectic lives with our spiritual needs. With travel and other commitments, no one has perfect attendance, but we look forward to gathering each week and discussing ways to keep God at the center of our lives and families. We are mostly couples with younger children, but anyone is more than welcome to join us. Our group focuses on service within and outside the church, as well as social events (church, camping, cookouts, life events, etc.) and support for each other as we walk through this crazy life.
