Equipping Classes

Sundays at 8:30 am

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.


Summer Break | July 4–August 8

Equipping classes will not be meeting again until the 3rd quarter classes begin on August 15.
