Fall Study Classes
Study Classes Can Change Your Life (Seriously!)
We have a whole slate of classes this fall that we think are worth signing up for! We are offering multiple ways for you to engage with the Bible more fruitfully, develop regular spiritual practices, and form authentic relationships with other Christians, both in person and through Zoom. Now, more than ever, we need to invest in our spiritual lives both individually and communally if our faith is going to continue to sustain and strengthen us.
