FOR IT IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION."

Fall Sunday School Classes 

Our classes during the Sunday School hour (9:45am - 10:45am) are back! Come join us as we grow in our faith together. There's something for everyone.
Our Students are encouraged to participate in corporate worship, service, and life together beyond our youth ministry offerings. We hope that our youth ministry will be the catalyst for lifelong participation in the local church. Our Milestones initiative encourages this mindset through various rites of passage.
