Sunday Space Group (Parlor)
Christian parents are committed to providing their children with a good faith foundation. But, often, it is not easy for parents to find the time and energy to focus on their own relationship with God. If this sounds familiar, Sunday morning is a good time to drop off your kids in the nursery or Testament Travels and join other parents for a time of discussion, learning and fellowship. Each week, there will be little to no preparation required and know that if you happen to nod off from lack of sleep, we’ll let you nap till the end of class! If you have any questions please email Rev. Donna McKee at .
Wesley 124 Group (W 124) All Ages
This is not your regular Sunday school class but a Sunday morning group that focuses on in-depth Bible and book studies based on the six elements of discipleship. Preparation is encouraged beforehand for each Sunday’s study, unless you are visiting. Studies last from 4 to 6 weeks, and there’s always a seat for those who wish to join us for a study that interests you.
