Adult Sunday School
The Adult Sunday School is a 40-minute lecture. One of our guiding verses is I Peter 3:15, “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.” A copy of their recent brochure can be found HERE.
Faith 20/20 is an interactive opportunity to learn. We continue with our twin goals of delivering thoughtful spiritual content (20 minutes) to be processed in intimate conversations (20 minutes). Each session is a bite-sized jump into deep topics with a side of getting to know some new people. A copy of their recent brochure can be found HERE.
