Join us each Sunday at 10:00am to for our Adult Study. Beginning January 23 and continuing until the beginning of Lent, we will be utiling a Bible study created by Milestone Ministries. This study follows the Revised Common Lectionary. Each week we will meet to read scripture and share out thoughts. We will continue utilizing this Bible study throughout the year along with a variety of other topical studies.


Lent Sunday School

Beginning Sunday March 6th at 10:00am, the Adult Sunday School class will begin discussing the daily devotional "The Journey to Jerusalem: A Story of Jesus' Last Days." In this imaginative retelling, author John Pritchard explores the Gospel of Luke by looking through the eyes of the disciple John. The Journey to Jerusalem follows Luke’s account from Luke 9:51, as Jesus “set his face to go to Jerusalem.” Perfect for individual or group study, The Journey to Jerusalem provides weekday readings for Lent, from Ash Wednesday to Good Friday, along with a poem for each Saturday. Questions for reflection and discussion are also included.

Please contact Brittany Jackson to request your copay of this devotional. You do not need to attend the class to request a devotional. You also do not need to read the devotional to attend the class.
