 Adult Classes  

Confessing the Faith – Led by Ben Hardesty (Downstairs Video Room) March 12- June 4

We’ll be using the Westminster Confession of Faith to guide us through the Bible’s teaching on salvation. We’ll start by looking at how Christ is our mediator, and then we’ll learn how it is that he calls us, justifies us, adopts us into his family, and sanctifies us. We’ll also look at what it means to have saving faith, how we are able to do good works, and how we can be assured of our salvation.


1 & 2 Peter – Led by Dan Sullivan  (Fellowship Hall) March 12 – April 23

The class will be on 1 Peter & possibly 2 Peter if we have time.  1 Peter; a letter that teaches those who persevere in faith while suffering persecution should be full of hope.  We will look at the author, time frame, occasion and what the message was to the 1st Century church and how to apply it to our lives in 2023.

3| Small Groups

12:45pm & 6pm Small Groups – The study is Gentle & Lowly by PCA Pastor, Dane Ortlund. Christians know what Jesus Christ has done, but who is he? What is his deepest heart for his people, weary and faltering on their journey toward heaven? Jesus said he is gentle and lowly in heart. This book reflects on these words, opening up a neglected yet central truth about who he is for sinners and suffers today. Choose one of the options listed below to attend.
