Spring Adult Sunday School Classes
February 19 – June 11, 2017
Jesus and Your Job
Each class will consist of a short study relating aspects of Jesus ministry to different jobs people do, in areas as diverse as hospitality, finance, education, health care, counseling, and construction. We will then follow the lesson with a panel discussion from people working in that field. Click here to see dates and panel discussion topics.

When Kids Hurt: Help for Adults Navigating the Adolescence Maze
We invite parents of teenagers, parents of younger children, and other adults who want to come alongside young people to join us for this class, which will follow Chap Clark’s foundational book. The class will feature a variety of facilitators and seek to help adults understand the challenges facing teenagers today.
