SUMMER ADULT BIBLE CLASSES
Whether you're new to the Bible or a long-time Christian who studies the Bible regularly, our adult Bible classes offer a welcoming environment to grow in knowledge, understanding and faith, through a variety of topics and formats.
Choose a class that interests you and jump in at any time (starting June 4). All classes meet on Sundays at 10:00am.
(Got kids? Bring 'em. We have classes at the same time for them as well.)
Why do we crave relationship? Why is justice fair? Why are so many people pursuing spirituality? And why is beauty so beautiful? In his book on which this class is based, N. T. Wright argues that each of these questions takes us into the mystery of who God is and what he wants from us. This video/discussion series will provide a fresh look to those who want to grow in understanding of their faith, as well as seekers and new Christians.

VBS For Adults: Great Stories of the Bible
If you attended a Vacation Bible School as a child, that is probably where you learned many of the great stories of the Bible: David and Goliath, Samson, Joshua and the battle of Jericho, Daniel in the lion’s den, Elijah and the priests of Baal, etc. In this summer series, we will look at each of these stories again, but from our perspective as adult Christians, to see the valuable lessons that God provides for us in each of these entertaining stories.

Onward: Engaging the Culture without Losing the Gospel
As the culture changes all around us, it is no longer possible to pretend that we are a Moral Majority. That may be bad news for America, but it can be good news for the church. What's needed now, in shifting times, is neither a doubling-down on the status quo nor a pullback into isolation. Instead, we need a church that speaks to social and political issues with a bigger vision in mind: that of the gospel of Jesus Christ. As Christianity seems increasingly strange, and even subversive, to our culture, come explore the opportunity we have to reclaim the freakishness of the gospel, which is what gives it its power in the first place. (Based on the book Onward by Russell Moore)

Love. But not the kind of love that stops at thoughts and feelings. Love that takes action. Love that does. In this study of the book by Bob Goff, we will look at stories taken from the author’s life and attitude that illustrate how each day can become a meaningful chance to make faith simple and real.
