Adult Discipleship Classes

"History of Christian Music" a 4-week class taught by Darren Jones on Feb 2, 16, 23, and March 1 during the 9:00 service in the purple room.


This class will be a look at Christian music through the centuries, with a focus on the church musical traditions of America. We'll listen to worship music ranging from chant to choirs, and from organ-led hymns to electric-guitar-accompanied solos. Whether your favorite is Hillsong or Handel, you'll learn more about the ways that Christians have worshiped God in song.


"Kings of Judah and Israel" a 4-week class taught by Darren Jones on March 8, 15, 22, and 29 during the 9:00 service in the purple room.


Ever felt lost during sermons when the pastor mentions Hezekiah, Josiah, or Jehoshaphat? Did you know that Ahaz and Ahab aren't the same person - in fact, they ruled in two separate kingdoms, over 100 years apart?" Come learn about the kings of Judah (Jesus' ancestors) and Israel (the breakaway kingdom that never got its act together).

Ash Wednesday

(service 2/26/20 @ 7:00pm)

The first Christians observed with great devotion the days of our Lord’s passion and resurrection, and it became the custom of the Church to prepare for them by a season of penitence and fasting. The season of Lent provided a time in which converts to the faith were prepared for Holy Baptism.  It was also a time when those who, because of notorious sins, had been separated from the body of the faithful were reconciled by penitence and forgiveness, and restored to the fellowship of the Church. Thereby, the whole congregation was put in mind of the message of pardon and absolution set forth in the Gospel of our Savior, and of the need which all Christians continually have to renew their repentance and faith.


I invite you, therefore, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent, by self‑examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self‑denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word.

~Patrick
