NEW CLASSES BEGINNING AUG. 21 – 
We’re excited for these three new adult classes beginning Aug. 21 at 9:45am.

    2. Digging in the Old Testament and Finding Jesus – The fireworks display is always spectacular, but think back on the feelings of anticipation you have as you get ready for the big production–things in the past have given you the hope, expectation and excitement for what is to come. Get ready–let’s dig into the Old Testament and find Jesus.  Teacher: Joanne Lodge
    3. A Place to Stand – Explore the Bible and the Heidelberg Catechism to discover the unshakeable, unmovable character of God.  Teacher: Pastor Kent Landhuis
