What are they?
Adult Communities are ongoing adult classes led by our tremendous teachers that meet on Sunday mornings during our two service times (9:00 & 10:40 AM). This is a great place to begin to connect with others and experience the power of in-depth Bible studies that speak directly to life’s issues.
How do I get started?
These classes are wide open for you. Pick a class that looks interesting and the hour that you want to attend and go for it! Make sure to let some people in the class know that it’s your first time being there, so they can welcome you. Grab an “Adult Communities” brochure in our church lobby or check below for the most recent listing of our Adult Communities.
