Study opportunities designed to meet you where you are, connect you to others, and move you along your own faith journey
Through Foundations you can begin to equip yourself as you enter into a personal relationship with Christ. Gain knowledge and understanding of fundamental tools that will foster your growth and enrich your experience along the way.
Experience God's word through scripture and discover how God's story is intertwined with your own personal journey. Begin connecting what you know and the experiences you have had with the journey that we share. What does scripture tell us about who we are, about who God is and about our relationship with one another?
Voyages move you beyond the basic knowledge and understanding of the biblical text and allow you to journey deeper in your faith experience. Examine the word and tackle difficult questions. Look beyond your own experience and consider the religious practice of others. Challenge yourself with the text and discussion with others.
By providing access to experts in a variety of fields, guest lectures allow opportunities for personal growth.
Sunday School Groups
A variety of open, on-going groups, each committed to spiritual growth, mission and fellowship, that meet on Sunday mornings at the church.
You are encouraged to visit a number of groups and experience the unique personality that each one offers before choosing a group. Some groups are small, intimate gatherings, while others are larger and more formal. Some are led by the same gifted teacher each week, while others are facilitated by class members, guest speakers or clergy. Some groups are entirely based in Bible study, while others explore contemporary Christian topics.
