Studies + Classes

We believe that authentic growth in the Christian faith happens in a community where we gather to study and learn what it means to live as disciples of Christ. Classes and studies vary in length from 4 to 34 weeks, depending on the specific study. Looking for a Sunday School class? We have a number of classes ranging in age, marital status, and discussion topics.

Wellness Classes

  • Grief Care

    Begins February 9, 2020 | 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. (4 weeks)

    Suffering the death of someone we love is often shocking and almost always overwhelming.  Our culture insists that we "bounce back", but our grief is important and speaking about it can bring healing. Join Rev. Casey Orr for this 4-week class where we will confront our grief, grow to understand it, and take steps toward healing with others on the journey.

One-time Workshops

  • Lenten Prayer Bead Workshop

    February 18, 6-7:30 p.m.

    You're invited to make a set of prayer beads to use during the Lenten season to help open your mind and heart more fully to God during this special season of the year. During the class, we'll learn about the 40 days of Lent, explore how prayer beads can aid us in our devotional times, and make a simple set of beads that we can use during our prayers. Light refreshments will be served. The workshop is $15 and will be led by Lisa Edge and Carol Bumbalough.

Topical Studies

Our Wednesday night Refuel study covers a variety of topics and series on practical discipleship. Each week has different speakers and panels discussing different topics.
