    Living a Christian life does not come automatically.
    It comes through study, worship, and learning together.  
    Sunday school is a beginning for children and youth, and essential for growth for adults! 
    The lessons of Christian education make it possible for us to practice love
    and to live as children of God.



Meeting Sundays after worship, this class is open to all interested adults.  Studies average 4-6 weeks, and can be joined at any time.  Coming up next is an Advent Study titled "Because of Bethlehem: Love is Born, Hope is Here" by Max Lucado.  Please let Jean Hamilton know asap if you plan to attend, as books are limited.

Men's Group
