Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors.
20/30 Vision Church Parlor
This New Class is for college students, singles and those families with young children. This group explores many topics that pertain to their everyday life and explore how the scriptures shape their lives. This group also meets outside the Sunday School setting providing mission activities as well as social functions.
Crusaders Class Room 203
Another seniors class of singles and couples share topical discussions and fellowship. They are a receptive group and enjoy frequent social events.
Encouragers Class Room 204
Look for the classroom with a wall of crosses. Each family is represented by a different cross. Most of these young couples or singles are parents of children and youth. They discuss current events, needs, and life issues, using scriptural guidance. Outside of class, they enjoy doing mission activities. Go upstairs to room 204 and join them.
Friendship Class Wheeler House
This class has been together longer than any of our classes. Beginning in January of 2007 they began a new outreach by taking the class meeting to the Wheeler House and leading a Sunday school lesson there. This group has always shown genuine concern for their members and has stood together as leaders of this church.
Searchers Class Room 217
Originally for the “newly retired”, travelers, or “empty nesters,” this class has continued to grow each year because of their fellowship and hospitable attitude. Their study is formational and curriculum is varied, but very scriptural.
Seekers Class Room 223
“Life to Bible” studies brings this group of folks back each week to discuss life issues. Five class members teach the class, rotating each week. This group is active in mission and outreach and enjoy social gatherings several times a year.
Young Adults Class Room 209
The Connections Class is led by Rev. Don Yeager and meets in room 113A. These studies are strictly Biblical, sometimes with DVD, but always welcomes "all ages and stages." Come and visit, you might like us!
