ADULT BIBLE FELLOWSHIP (Sunday School)
Adults enjoy age-appropriate, small classes that provide an opportunity for a challenging study and practical application of God's Word. Adult class divisions schedule periodic fellowship activities that encourage adults to form and sustain lasting friendships that are important at this stage of life.
The Adult Bible Fellowship Classes are Christ-centered in Biblical teaching and emphasis. The purpose is to strengthen the believer in his walk with the Lord and in their knowledge of the Word of God.
The classes focus on applying the truths as presented and learn about God for a daily consistent walk with Him. Handouts are made available in each class for study and review.
The challenge is to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus, (II Peter 2:2), be faithful, and to help strengthen and encourage others in their walk with the Lord.
Come and be a part of this fellowship with other believers around the Word of God.
