Adult Christian Education
Christian education does not happen quickly. Christian education is not something we do once as children—then when we get older, we’ve simply got it. No, Christian education is a lifelong process of learning, believing, growing, and serving. Christian education is a never-ending process that is enabled in Christian community, as Christians continue to study, worship, fellowship, and serve together.
The lessons of Christian education make it possible for us to practice love and to live as children of God. How well we—children, youth, or adults—learn those lessons day by day will determine what kind of church we are Sunday by Sunday.
Adult Christian Education (ACE) Sunday morning Classes: All are welcome. Come as you are able. Class times 9:30am - 10:30am.

9:30 ACE class : Adult study during Sunday School hour. Join us in the Meditation Room Sundays at 9:30. Led by Janet McCarty For many, the Christian life feels like a long game of "Jesus Says": Jesus says pray; Jesus says give; Jesus says go to church. In Follow, an eight-session DVD Bible study, pastor and bestselling author Andy Stanley helps your small group discover that Jesus' invitation is an invitation to relationship. It begins with a simple request - follow me. Andy Stanley takes you on a journey through the Gospels as he traces Jesus' teaching on what it means to follow.
