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.

Weekly Studies

    Are you seeking answers to your big questions about the Bible? Join Rev. Dr. Domenic Nigrelli this summer for a four-week class exploring the connection between the Bible and science, what it means for the Bible to be the "Word of God," and how to make sense of difficult passages.

Don't miss this opportunity to explore your faith and gain a better understanding of one of the most-read and most-loved books in the world. Join us and satisfy your curiosity!

  • When You Pray Women's Summer Study

    Wednesdays beginning May 31, 12-1:15 p.m.

    Do you struggle with finding the right words to say when you pray? Are there times when you feel hesitant to share certain emotions with God? Do you sometimes realize at the end of a day that you haven't prayed at all? If so, you are not alone.

    This study provides an opportunity for women to come together to study prayers in the Bible that can inspire your own. You’ll learn that God welcomes your praise and lament, your thanksgiving and intercession. You’ll see examples of how to pray when you’re alone and when you’re gathered with others. Above all, you’ll notice there’s no one right way to pray. As you draw near to God through prayer, you’ll find your faith strengthened and your heart united to Christ.

  • Grief Care

    Thursdays beginning June 8, 12-1:15 p.m. (4 weeks)

    Suffering the death of someone we love is often shocking and almost always overwhelming. Our experience of grief in these last few years has been complicated by distance and isolation which has limited our outlets to process our experiences. 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. There is no cost, but we ask that you register to attend.

  • The Surpassing Value of Knowing Christ: A Study of Philippians

    Thursdays beginning July 13, 9:30-11 a.m., (5 weeks)
