CHRISTIAN FORMATION GROUPS
Sunday School Classes meet at 9:45 AM every Sunday.
Nursery: Kindergarten and under.
Lower Elementary: 1st – 3rd grades.
Upper Elementary: 4th – 6th grades.
Inside Out (Teens): 7th – 12th grades.
Our name describes our mission. We are changing on the “inside” every time we learn more about scripture and discover what God wants us to know. As a result, his love shows on our “outsides”. We also take what we learn inside of our class and go outside of our “safe zone” to share Christ with all those we meet. Our focus is to give back because we know God has given us so much. This comes in many forms, but some examples have been organizing VBS, youth services, baking cookies for Kairos, or making dinner for those in need.
Young Adults: Ages 18 – 30.
Friendship Class: Adult.
We serve many missions throughout the year both locally and far-reaching. Some of these efforts include taking baskets to the homebound and others in the community at Christmas and Easter. Making and selling sub sandwiches to fund projects, supporting missionaries, donating when there is a need in the church or community, making school kits for children in the U.S. and other countries, and serving the church whenever there is a need. Class studies cover a variety of subjects from in-depth study of individual Books of the Bible to topical studies during the seasons of Lent and Advent. This class is one of prayer, fellowship, missions and serving Christ in the church community and world.
True Helpers Class: Adult.
We join together weekly to study the Bible and follow its teachings. When there is a need in the church, community, or world, we strive to meet the challenges with concern and love. Be it in prayer, hands on, or monetarily. In addition to our weekly studies, we meet every other month for fellowship and to share ideas and needs. We have a built-in communication lifeline between us that keeps us in touch physically and mentally for situations that need attention. Our studies of the Bible and our efforts to serve continue to remind us that we are the “True Helpers.” Therefore, we have opportunity “let us do good to all. Especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Galatians 6:10
