Our Sunday School classes meet Sunday mornings at 9:15 am. We have classes for adults, youth, and children, with the purpose to help participants grow and mature as disciples of Jesus Christ.
The Winter Quarter begins on Sunday, December 2.

Adult Sunday School
Each quarter we offer two classes: one is a study of a portion of scripture, the other is often a topical study of current interest in light of God’s word.
Our current classes are:
Let the Word of Christ Dwell in You Richly: The Psalms, Hymnody, and Singing
Paul charges the Colossians to let the word of Christ dwell in them richly. This follows a passage that addresses the comprehensive transforming power of the gospel in the Christian's life - putting to death what is earthly and putting on the virtues that characterize one who has been renewed by the work of Jesus. Paul proclaims that the word of Christ alone can produce this change, and he shows how this "dwelling" can happen. One of the central means Christ's words can work their way into the core of our identity is through "singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in [our] hearts to God." (Col. 3:16)
To help us achieve this end, we will explore the role of Psalms and hymns in the Christian life and the unique medium of singing that helps God's word to dwell within us. Over the quarter, we will address three separate but connected topics: 1) The Psalms, 2) How to find resources for singing the Psalms and hymns and strategies for using them, 3) How to develop a singing life individually, as a family, and as a congregation.
Developing musicianship is like woodworking. It is not reserved for the "gifted," but can be learned just like building a chair - with research, learning, making mistakes, and practice. Join us as we explore how to let the word of Christ dwell richly within us through this beautiful means.

War of Words: Getting to the Heart of Your Communication Struggles
We spend all day talking - from “Good morning!” to “Good night!” - we are constantly communicating. Our ability to communicate is one of the things that sets us apart from the rest of creation. We are made in the image of God - a God who creates everything by His Word. Scripture tells us over and over again that our words can give life, or bring death.
So why do we treat our words so flippantly? Or, even worse, why do we use them as tools to get what we want?
This is a class about communication. Not techniques, not “effective styles”, but about the God-given gift we have of speech, its purpose, how sin has distorted that purpose, and how Christ brings us, and our speech, back under His reign. “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks” (Luke 6:45). Complemented by Paul David Tripp’s book War of Words- join us as we learn together how God is changing our hearts to change our words to bring glory to Himself and redemption to the world.
