Adult Education classes

  • Sundays 9:45–10:45 am - Walking Through the Bible – Room E4
    • Are you interested in learning how, when and where Christianity has its roots?  The “Walking Through the Bible” class started in Genesis and will eventually finish with Revelation.  The Old Testament points to the New Testament.  It’s history and theology.  Come join in the discussion to learn and participate. This is a group participation so you can ask all those questions you have had.  If we can’t answer them right away we will find someone who can.  You can drop in at any time during any of the studies. This is an ongoing class.

  • Sundays 9:45–10:45 am – The Hiding Place – Room E9
    • Corrie Ten Boom and her family risked their lives to help Jews and resistance workers escape the Nazis during WWII in Holland; for this they were sent to concentration camps.
