Adult Ministry

Welcome to Adult Ministry! There are several opportunities for you to connect with others. Through Bible study, service, interest groups, there is something for everyone. Don’t see what you are looking for?  Consider forming/joining a group by contacting Connections Coordinator Kim Schaeferle or Director of Faith Formation Leann Thompson.


Join us for educational opportunities for all ages for 3 Monday nights in January.  All classes are at 6:15 or 7:30pm, with desserts, fellowships, and hot chocolate/coffee/decaf coffee in between. Classes will be announced in December.  In the meantime, feel free to peruse last year’s offerings.
