Sunday School

Enjoy Christian community, develop friendships, and grow in knowledge and faith.

In a large church such as ours, a Sunday School class is one of the best ways to develop friendships within the congregation and share in Christian community. The weekly rhythm of Sunday provides a regular opportunity to gather and study together as a complement to worship. Between worship services, the adult Sunday morning program includes a variety of regular classes with a wide range of sizes, formats, and content. Classes begin at 9:45 a.m. each Sunday unless otherwise noted in the class description.
