people_watchingAll Adult Bible Communities meet regularly on Sunday morning and take part in a variety of activities outside of their Sunday morning classes. For class times, see the list at the left.

Building on the tradition of Sunday School, Adult Bible Communities provide a place to belong as Christian fellowship is established upon biblical instruction. While we believe that corporate worship should be a priority for all believers, we also know that people desire to belong to a smaller group in which they can grow in their knowledge of the Bible and its application to everyday life. These groups are broadly based on age, stage in life, or shared commitments.
