Equipping Classes

Equipping Classes are taking a break for the summer. Classes will resume on August 14 with the start of the third quarter.

Our equipping classes are an essential element in helping us fulfill our mission statement. They provide training for our church family to be more competent, committed, and contagious disciples of Jesus Christ as we know God, apply his truth, and help others.
