Believers (40+)

Our meetings start at 9:15 (so we can end on time for the choir members to get to rehearsal by 10:30).

C.H.R.I.S.T. (Multigenerational but most are 50s and 60s)

Christian Hearts Reborn in Spirit and Truth is open to all adults, married or single, all levels of faith. Our curriculum includes a variety of Bible study series where we dive into and explore the Bible, then discuss how it relates to issues we face every day in our lives. Some of the lessons are supported by short videos. What really makes our class “work” is the diversity of our group and the lively discussions we have each week. Our class has a team of leaders who facilitate these weekly discussions. Relationship building is a top priority for us, and we schedule sharing/fellowship time every 6 weeks. We would love to have you visit our class and share in our discussions!

Seekers (Ages: 50+)

The Seekers Class explores a wide range of topics based on the Bible and Bible related material, including books and DVD’s.  Teaching is shared by a team of class members supplemented by occasional guest teachers.  To encourage fellowship we have quarterly potluck brunches during class time, lunches, movies and dinners on a semi-regular basis and an annual Christmas Party.  We support mission work within and without the church through donations and volunteer work.  Though we come from different religious backgrounds, the Seekers are unified by our devotion to Jesus Christ.
