Adult Small Groups & Studies
We offer a wide variety of Adult Sunday School Classes. It is our hope and prayer you will find a class who you can connect, study, share and fellowship with.
We begin new classes often. If you're interested in joining, leading or starting a class please email email@example.com.

The Nova-Fellowship class meets in the Church Parlor. We invite you to meet with us for fellowship, prayer, service, and song!
