Sunday School

Sunday school is a great opportunity to connect with others in the church. The Christian life is never a solo journey. Christians need consistent encouragement from each other to persevere in faith and live lives characterized by love and obedience to Christ. We believe Sunday school is an excellent way to facilitate the mutual encouragement, care, and service that the Bible calls the local church body to practice toward one another. We offer Sunday school classes where we can come together and share, pray, fellowship and study the word of God in smaller groups.
