Sunday Morning Bible Study Options
Our Sunday School groups are part of our church’s strategy “to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12-13). We believe that studying God’s Word together, each week, is essential for continued growth as a Disciple of Jesus.
Adult Bible Study Groups
Sunday morning Bible Study connection groups meet at 10:05am & provide a place for adults to:
- Study God’s Word
- Fellowship with other adults
- Build Christian relationships
- Experience the Christian life together
- Support one another in prayer
We currently use four major sources of Sunday school material, Explore the Bible, The Gospel Project, D6, and The Master’s Work series. Our church follows an age graded system that allows both members and guests to explore classes that best fit their study and fellowship needs.
