Please feel free to grab a cup of coffee in Fellowship Hall, say hello to your friends, and then join us in one of our Sunday morning Adult Learning Opportunities. Sunday School begins at 11:15 a.m., following morning worship and fellowship time. Here you will find spiritual enrichment, friendships, support, and opportunities to share common experiences with others on a similar journey of faith. A variety of classes is offered each quarter. Whether you wish to know more about the Bible, issues facing society, or dealing with life’s hardships, we hope there will be a Sunday School class to fit your needs and interests.
