Mini-Congregation Classes

These adult classes meet on Sunday mornings and provide a place to connect in community with a focus on fellowship, prayer and teaching of the Word. The classes seek to be a “mini” congregation amidst the larger church family and may meet for social events outside their Sunday morning gathering.
