Then Jesus said ... “If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” - John 8:31-32

Learning Communities

We are pleased to offer short-term classes and seminars on a variety of subjects throughout the year. Topics may include spiritual formation, Bible study, theology, personal growth, parenting, marriage enrichment, and others as they arise.
These groups, formed by common interest, offer opportunities to meet new people in the church and community and often span generations, thus adding to the richness of the experience. 

Registrations and payments, if any, are online through Fellowship One.
