Young adults are the “Next Generation” of this church. In Colossians 1:28, Paul states that his ministry goal is to “present everyone mature in Christ.” Similarly, our class goal is for us to mature and grow in our faith together, so that we as the “Next Generation” may be equipped to lead, serve, and minister within and outside our church.

Room 006 (Lower Level)
Ages: Parents of young families
Leader: Dan Hunt
Current Topic: The Book of Acts
We are a group of young families who strive to build strong family foundations rooted in Christ. We do this by meeting and sharing life together on Sunday mornings as well as connecting with each other throughout the week. Our desire is to develop authentic community among each other and anyone looking for a place to connect.
Room 020 (Lower Level)
Leader: Vince Caliendo
Current Topic: The New City Catechism
This Sunday School class offers a gathering point for individuals and families who cherish worshiping Christ together. We believe the high-energy nature of a room full of kids and parents is worth the necessary flexibility and distracted moments; what a beautiful, God-given mess it is! Our lessons are taught in a way that our 3-year-olds can understand while still being challenging and edifying for the adults. You can expect lots of time for conversation throughout the Bible-teaching material as well as socializing.

We want to grow a welcoming community of committed families that regularly attend, connect and share, provide spiritual growth, and develop future leaders for the class and church.

Our purpose is to stimulate and support growth in the Christian and each member’s walk with Christ. We chose a Bible verse as a foundation of our fellowship — Malachi 3:16: “Then those who feared the Lord spoke with one another. The Lord paid attention and heard them.” The class is a round-table discussion of our lesson with the teacher leading the discussion.
Room 132 - Church Lounge (Main Level)
Leader: Tom Allen and Woody Hartwell

We seek to encourage and energize people through in-depth Bible study, open discussion of a study book, supportive relationships, and prayer and praise.

Relationships are built through some large and small group social events.

The study of this rich Old Testament book deals with the sinful nation of Judah and God’s judgment—a demonstration of His infinite love by providing a message of Good News with the promise of a Savior. This study will dig deeply into God’s Word and message of salvation.
