Let everyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who wishes to take the water of life as a gift. –Revelation 22:17

Sunday Adult Classes

Are you thirsty?

If you are thirsty for answers to the twists and turns of life’s challenging journey, we invite and encourage all visitors and members to join a Sunday School class, study God’s Word and become a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ.
