Occasional special studies have included Women of the Bible, Gifts of the Spirit, and Creationism versus Evolution. We alternate teachers on a weekly basis which provides a variety of insights when coupled with class discussion.
As a class, numerous mission/outreach programs are supported, and we do a meal to raise funds for church projects. Social activities include a class picnic, fall or spring hike, and Christmas dinner.
Support is given to class members during family, health and/or physical issues by providing meals, assistance and both spiritual and mental uplifting which are important in meeting personal needs of all our class members.

Our class is conducted in an open discussion format! All ages are welcome. Meets in the lowest level near the children’s educational wing.
Faith Discovery Sunday School Class
Faith Discovery does just that, we discover faith. We use text such as the Upper Room to discuss everyday situations, problems and challenges and read scripture that provides solutions for the issue. We then provide our own experiences with the group to help deal with future situations. We show how to turn to the bible when we need help today. We’d very much like to have anyone come and join us. We’re not an age specific class and we want to hear from you. This class meets in the prayer room on the second level.

This group also plans social gatherings, and visits to shut-ins and nursing homes. Class meets on second floor around the corner from the elevator.

Generations in Faith Together Sunday School Class
The Generations In Faith Together class is comprised of saints of every age. We learn, pray and laugh together. This is a great group of caring individuals who are very active in many mission projects. We collect items throughout the year for disaster flood buckets, gifts, for college students each mouth, chidren who are in need of basic necessities and have done a fund raiser this year to help out a friend with medical expenses. We are always collecting items for our Open Door guests and serve them a meal one evening during our host week. We serve aVBS meal once during that week and are always looking for a way to be involved in mission. We also have picnics, go to plays and have field trips. We will be making apple butter in the fall and look forward to a time of fellowship. This is a “no-fear” class. That means that no one is ever called on to answer a question or to read. Everything is on a volunteer basis. Varied viewpoints and open minds are welcomed. At this time we are finishing up the New Testament study, it has only taken four years! We are currently looking at a topical study. This class meets on the second floor around the corner from the elevator. We try to start at 9:45 a.m. and discuss class business and catch-up with one another as we drink coffee. Then we move next door to the Fellowship Class at 10 a.m. to start our lesson.
