Feel your faith come alive alongside fellow church family members and friends through leading, learning, living and loving.


One of the ways we grow as disciples is through our relationships with others who share similar goals. By offering a variety of group studies, small group Bible studies and community outreach activities, the Adult Christian Education Ministry will help you deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ.

We invite you to review our list of offerings and calendar of events and hope you will make plans to join us. We look forward to connecting with you in the Adult Christian Education Ministry!


Adult Christian Education Ministry offers multiple opportunities for fellowship and study throughout the week for all of our members and friends.

This Fall we focus on the book of Galatians. The Apostle Paul often said that he was “building – not with bricks and mortar but rather with people”. In a world of widespread ethnic rivalry and divisiveness, Paul’s strong corrective message and good news in Galatians demands to be heard and reheard.

We have several days and times from which to choose.
