Mission Statement: Enrich Faith, Enhance Life, Expand Learning, Embrace God's Mystery.

Adult Ministries hosts an array of classes and experiences in education, growth and development in Bible study, life application, spiritual formation and prayer, social justice, theology, book discussions, and other topics of interest. These opportunities may take the form of classes, prayer and meditation, experiential formats, retreats; they may be offered during the Sunday morning education hour, evening and daytime hours during the week, or on weekends. Some classes or groups may prefer or require advanced registration and or purchase of a book.
