Fellowship & Community

The Seekers Class meets Sundays at 8:45 a.m. September to May. A great small group for new and seasoned Christians. The group explores scripture with lessons relevant to everyday life. 

Starting Sunday, September 9th, the Seekers Class will be discussing Redeeming How We Talk. These days it seems everyone has an opinion on everything whether anyone is listening or not. All our technological advances promise connection, but bullying, isolation, and discord are more prevalent than ever. Could it be that we've lost our ability to talk to each other?  In Redeeming, Ken Wytsma and A.J. Swoboda have invited us to stop and reflect on the words we encounter and produce each day. Learn: the nature, purpose, and practice of Godly speech; what the digital age is doing to our words; and the power of silence, listening and hard conversation.

All are welcome!
