FAITH & FRIENDS CLASS
Spiritual growth doesn't only happen in corporate worship, but often happens in less formal gatherings like small groups. The Faith and Family Sunday School class is a fellowship beyond Sunday morning made up of parents with children of all ages. For many of us just making it to church on Sunday morning is a feat. We are learning together what it means to be a Christian family and to share our joys and challenges in community. Class members and guest teachers lead studies and open discussions focusing on Biblical principles and/or the teachings of Christ. A variety of studies keeps things interesting and fun. This family of friends is a caring and nurturing group serving God and helping others. In addition to Sunday morning, we schedule times outside of the Sunday school hour for outreach and fellowship opportunities as a class. We strive to experience the purpose and power of Christ in our lives, dig deeper in our faith and grow closer to God. Even if you can’t make it on Sunday morning you can still be part of this group by sharing in our class emails, outreach projects and social gatherings.

GRACE PLACE
