Current and Upcoming Classes
Lenten Bible Study
Sundays @ 9:00am | February 21st - March 8th
Join us to take a closer look at the Lectionary readings for the Sundays of Lent beginning Sunday, February 21st at 9:00a.m.. Each week we’ll read and discuss the other lessons for that Sunday’s reading in the Old Testament, the Psalms, and the New Testament – and how they relate to the Gospel reading for that week.
Wednesdays @ 9:00am | February 17th - April 7th
If you are seeking a way to spend time with God and some fellow journeyers this Lent, consider being part of a lectio divina group, an ancient prayer practice that is a structured, reflective way of praying a brief portion of scripture and listening to what God is saying to you. We will do lectio divina as a group on Zoom. (Zoom access will be provided.)
Come and see what God has in store for you this Lenten season!

Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption
“Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption” is a book study led by Preston Rodriguez. The book was written by Bryan Stevenson, lawyer and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI). An unforgettable true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to end mass incarceration in America. This book study will have open and honest conversations about the events and themes of this book, as well as our role as a church to help fight injustice and inequality.
The mission of the Adult Faith Academy (AFA) is to foster lifelong learning about God, self, and all of creation, empowering Christians to effectively proclaim and serve Christ… locally and throughout the world. It is the vision of AFA to:
Present information that will touch the head, heart and actions of a diverse community of adult learners, in ways relevant to life today.
Inform, form and transform adults as they grow in their relationship with God and each other, living as examples of Jesus Christ.
Develop a deeper understanding of the Bible as we explore intellectually and spiritually challenging faith issues.
More sessions are being planned for the Fall. Specific session details will be forthcoming.
