Adult Ministries

Community is the context for discipleship. The Christian faith is not intended to be lived in isolation; we were made for relationship with God and for relationship with each other. We belong not merely to a local church, but to a people seeking to grow in their Christian faith.  The goal of adult ministries is to provide growth opportunities for people individually and collectively during all stages of adult life.

For All Adults

James (Bible Book Study)      Aug 15–Nov 7                       Room 1129

A Parents Guide to Technology              Oct 10                 Room: Middle School Theater
Apps, video games and social media can become a time drain for our kids. They also create a direct—sometimes dangerous—portal to our children. They can also isolate and open our children to cyber bullying and risky behaviors. The goal of this class is to help parents stop and think about the technology your family uses, and navigate the pitfalls of today’s most popular digital platforms.  A free resource will be provided for this class.
