Our desire is to help make you a disciple of Christ. What is a disciple? It's someone who adheres to the teachings of Jesus Christ and lives his/her life according to them. But you can't be a disciple until you know what the Bible says. 

That's where our adult education ministry comes in. We have put together weekly classes and groups that approach the Bible from so many interesting directions, and all of them take you on a journey toward being a disciple of Christ. 

So 1.) decide to go deeper, 2.) browse our opportunities and 3.) pick a class or group that is catered to your style and preference for growing in your walk with Jesus Christ!
