SPRING CLASSES IN FULL SWING!
Our Sunday Morning Discipleship classes are held every Sunday at 10:00 AM. Our Sunday morning classes are organized around terms so that anyone who wants to join a class, knows when they can join and how long they can be a part of it. So if you’ve never joined us for a class, there has never been a better time. Find a class where you can meet others, learn about important issues facing us today, and deepen your faith. If you have any questions about a class, or would like to teach in the future, contact Tom Barila.
A Study of Galatians
Led by David Carroll and David Skove

The Architectural Design of a Growing and Faith-Based Family
Hosted by Ginger James along with special guests
March 4 – April 29, Fellowship Hall
This interactive class will be addressing things that families have been asking about for years: How to balance family and work (and your faith) while raising children, how to grow a career and not lose your family, how to balance being a one income family without resenting the one who works and the one who doesn’t, single parenting concerns, stay at homes mom’s value, etc. Due to the unique format and purpose of the class, this is something couples across the generations could all benefit from, and collectively support each other in, as they break down the walls and start helping each other in faith and alongside one another.

Acts: The Sequel

Acts gives an accurate account of the birth, growth, and challenges of the Christian church. Acts is also the connecting link between Christ's life and the life of the church. An in-depth and expository study of God’s Word is at the center of every class. All are welcome.
Soul Repair: Rebuilding your Spiritual Life:
Led by Mary Damon
March 4 – May 27, 500 Forest Ave., Multipurpose Room
We are a diverse community seeking God’s healing and wholeness for the brokenness in our lives and families through safe, authentic Christian relationships. We would love for you to join us in this rich, deep encounter of the book Soul Repair: Rebuilding Your Spiritual Life. Do you fear that God is angry with you? Do you wonder if God is really FOR you? Deep down many of us believe that we are not good enough, and never will be good enough, to have a meaningful relationship with God. This is because we have been spiritually trained in ways that have left us with distorted and inadequate spiritualties and we are left with a toxic combination of fear and shame. If you find yourself living out a burdensome and unfulfilling spirituality, come and learn more about how to break out of the cycle.
