Classes and Studies

Rather than just providing information, our classes and programs create experiences that engage and transform our hearts and actions. Time together as a community nurtures us personally and encourages us to pour out the love of Christ to all.

We offer classes that focus on scripture, theology, and/or discipleship every Sunday morning at 10 a.m. You can join these classes in-person at our church or online through Zoom.

You can find a full list of classes, Bible studies, and small groups below.

January Focus

Sundays, January 9-30, 10 a.m., in person (S202) and via Zoom

Mental health is health, and to flourish and grow in a wholesome way, we must tend to our mind, body, and spirit. This means understanding our relationship with our bodies, thoughts and emotions, and with God. Led by professionals from Sun Counseling and Wellness, this four-week series will focus on tools for well-being through renewal and embrace of our whole selves.

Jan. 9: Values & Coping Skills with Sheba Surratt & Juliet Kuehnle

Living authentically means giving yourself permission to be human. This session will explore transparency, vulnerability, toxic positivity, boundary-setting and how to ask for help.

Jan. 23: Attunement To Our Whole Selves with Bailey Pitts and Hailey Knox
To thrive, we must be in tune with all aspects of ourselves, balancing mind, body and thoughts. This week will help create awareness of how we move, maintain and recharge our physical selves.

Jan. 30: Soul-Care: The Fruits of our Flourishing Soul with Sandra Boozer
