Adult Groups & Discipleship

We have a variety of different groups for all adults at every life stage in your spiritual journey. From Small Groups, Sunday School Classes, Women’s Groups, and Men’s Groups – there is a place for you here! Scroll down to learn more about our adult opportunities. For more information, contact or visit our leadership page for the staff contact.

Sunday School

Adult Groups & Sunday School are an opportunity to gather for deep and meaningful conversations about scripture and topics of faith. It is also an opportunity to create relationships, get to know others in our church, and live out our faith in community as Jesus instructed us. The goal of all of these classes is empowering individuals to strengthen their spiritual gifts, extend care to those in need, and welcome and discuss new ideas in a safe setting. All are welcome.
