Sunday school- 9:45 a.m.

Sunday school is the foundational strategy in our local church for leading people to faith in Christ and discipling all in that faith. This occurs through weekly Bible study, fellowship, worship, prayer, and ministry. The three armed goal is discovering the Word together, fellowshipping together, and taking the Gospel to the community outside of the church together. The church family gathers to study God's Word in community on Sunday mornings at 9:45.  Studying together brings out aspects of God's Word that otherwise may have gone unnoticed!  There's also the fellowship aspect, as conversations, for some, happen more naturally during Sunday school than during the worship service.
