Adult Ministries

We encourage life-long spiritual growth for all ages, including adults. There are a number of ministries offered at Cedar Hills. Finding a spot that is right for you is a great step towards deepening your faith. 

Sunday Classes

Classes for adults (and all ages) are offered during the school year between services at 9:45 AM. These classes often meet with 6-12 weeks at a time, and you can join at any time or visit any Sunday. Information about current classes is always available in the Gathering Space.  To check out current class offerings or register, go here

CLASS #1 – BIBLE STUDY INTENSIVE with Joanne Lodge

Podcast Available Online – God used very miraculous and specific tactics to free His people from Babylonian captivity to go back to Israel.  They settled into the country and got busy building their homes, businesses and families and even erected an altar to God.  However, the surrounding culture invaded their lives and that culture felt good to them.  58 years after their initial return, God determined to shake up their passivity. 

The circumstances under which we live today has placed us in the same kind of jeopardy these Old Testament pilgrims faced.  Come to the study and learn the lessons of renewal, revival, covenant making, and wall building with these two men chosen of God for we today have much work to do, and need again to be guided by God’s word.Bring your Bible, an inquiring mind, and an open heart.

CLASS #2 – UNSHAKEABLE HOPE with GARY SAGER
“In a trembling, unsteady world, learn to gain stability, find peace, and trust in God.” – Max Lucado

This Bible study (by Max Lucado) will help you stand on the definitive declarations of our mighty and loving God who governs the world according to his great and precious promises.

There are things that seem unsteady in this life, but when we filter our problems through the promises of God, we can choose to be people of the promise. We can build our lives on the promises of God, not the circumstances of life.

The stories of the men and women in Scripture were different, but the theme was the same: they were People of the Promise. Like them, we can also build our lives on God’s promises, and trust Him to keep them. REGISTER

CLASS #3 – YOU BELONG (MEMBERSHIP CLASS) with PASTOR KENT
You are invited to make deeper connections with God and God’s family at Cedar Hills when you attend our membership class. You will discover that God heals brokenness and restores all he created through a community of people who love one another. Through a relationship with Jesus and His Church, we share hospitality, authenticity, forgiveness, and restoration which transforms us and our neighbors! REGISTER 

CLASS #4 – PARENTING TOGETHER

Parenting Together is a community of parents (of infant through elementary age kids) looking to do life together. Any parent is welcome at any time throughout the year. Our goal is to learn from and with each other to grow in the role God gave us in raising our kids. We cover a wide range of topics through in-class discussion. We meet every Sunday (while our kids are in Sunday school). REGISTER

Retiree’s Breakfast
