Adult Sunday Communities Schedule Beginning March 26

Posted by Lindy Keffer on with 0 Comments

Our Adult Sunday Communities are designed to meet the various needs of our diverse body of believers. We have ongoing gatherings on Sundays to help us Prepare All Generations to Impact Lives for Christ.

These communities provide

  • Connections to Christian brothers and sisters who care for one another and challenge each other to pursue Jesus Christ in all of life.
  • Consistent series of Biblical study presented by gifted and trained teachers.
  • Opportunities for discussion, reflection and ministry involvement.

Looking For A Community?

The launch of our new Sunday morning schedule on March 26 will provide a great opportunity for communities to welcome new participants. Are you looking for a place to connect? Find a class in the listing below and join us!
