Our adult community welcomes adults, whether single, married, divorced or widowed. If you are looking for a Sunday morning study group, then adult community may just be the right fit for you.

The first few minutes are spent catching up on the past week and then we dive into the current study. Gary Blakeman and John Auld co-facilitate this interactive discussion of the Bible and how it relates to your life in today’s world. This is a safe place to voice your thoughts and hear what other people just like you are thinking. We engage with the Bible and various study materials throughout the year.

Messenger coffee and tasty treats are available for your enjoyment. We hope to meet you soon!
