Christian education is a lifelong journey. Sunday mornings find our members and friends gathering for reflection and discussion centered on the Triune God, our faith lives, and our Christian outreach. Other groups meet during the week, offering a safe place to explore God’s word and share in Christian fellowship and concern.
