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

Our Sunday School classes offer adults a wide selection of age groups, study topics, and learning styles. Most adult classes are mixture of single and married people. Study topics range from the Bible and Christian beliefs to personal growth issues, family relationships, and current social concerns.
