Equipping Classes

Equipping Classes meet on 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.

Equipping Class Break • December 18–January 1

Sunday, December 11, will be the last week of Equipping Classes before taking a break for the holiday season.

the Likeness of Christ

Teachers: Aaron Logan, Blake Boys, Andy Woodfield

The Story of the Old Testament, Genesis–Judges

Teachers: Brendan Tomassian & Jason Egli
