Adult Classes

The Friends in Faith class meets in room 2 in the lower level of the Education Wing. This group uses book studies or Bible Studies as their focus for adult education.

The Challengers class meets in room 10 in the upper level of the Education Wing. This group concentrates on short-term Bible based studies as their focus for adult education.

ARC (Adult Retreat Center)

The ARC is located on the west end of the lower level of the education wing. This is for adults who prefer time for quiet reading, Bible study or visiting with other parents during the Sunday School hour.
