Welcome to Adult Ministries

As Christian adults, we go through many phases in our lives—finishing up college, developing a career, starting and nurturing a family, becoming an “empty-nester,” retiring... All of these events, and so many others, are more bearable, meaningful and joy-filled when we do not have to walk them alone.

Wherever you are in life, there are opportunities here to continue moving along your spiritual pathway.


Sunday School Class a place where people and churches can be transformed

Adult Sunday School Classes

  • Together in Prayer

RM 205 hosted by Together in Prayer class

Contact:  Linda Palermo

8:30-9:30 an ongoing Bible study

Together in Prayer class studies a new lesson each week as members take turns bringing a devotional or a portion of a book that has spoken to them in a special way.  An example of a class study,  Jer 29:11 "I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."  No matter what occurs in our lives, disabled children, sick children, husband with a disease, loss of a cousin, God is still with us and still has a plan for our life.  This class style allows people to stop in and visit at any time not have to worry about entering the middle of a book or a study.

  • Why? Making Sense of God's Will

by Adam Hamilton

RM 125 hosted by Crusaders class

Contact Ross Compton

9:45 – 10:45am Fall study

When the ground shakes, and a poor nation’s economy is destroyed; when the waters rise, washing away a community’s hopes and dreams; when a child suffers neglect and abuse; when violence tears apart nations; where is God? If God is all powerful, and if each one of us is a beloved child of God, then how can God allow tragedy and suffering to infest his creation?
This study will help one find insight into the age-old question of how to understand the will of God. Chapters include  1. Why Do the Innocent Suffer?  2. Why Do My Prayers Go Unanswered? 3. Why Can't I See God's Will for My Life?  4. Why God's Love Prevails
