Adult Education

Ministry for Adults: Growing as Disciples

The primary purpose of adult ministry at FBC is to help adults grow as disciples of Jesus. We are a wonderful mix of believers, seekers, and skeptics. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, there is a place for you. We believe that God is at work in all of us and that we are each evolving in our understanding and experience of the Creator. In response, we offer a wide variety of classes on Sunday mornings, at 10:00 a.m., and small groups at various times throughout the week. New groups are continually forming, so watch this website or contact the office manager for the latest opportunities.

10:00 a.m. Fall, Winter, and Spring Sunday Classes
