Larry Chadwick's Class continues in Room 10 and begins at 10:00 am: If you haven't been to SS Class in years then this class is for you. If SS Class has made you uncomfortable this class is for you. If you've felt too illiterate to participate in Bible discussions this class is for you. If you can't get to SS Class on time then this class is for you. If you like "hot drinks" at the start of your day then this class is for you. Why: Because church is only half of the blessing

Small Discussion Class: Each week this class focuses on a passage from Scripture for discussion. Facilitators rotate to encourage shared responsibility and a variety of leading styles.

Room 7: The Room 7 Class is currently studying the book of Matthew. The folks in Room 7 love a good discussion, lots of animated viewpoints, and fearless heartfelt personal testimonies. The Room 7 class also loves a great project, the kind that leave dirt under your fingernails and dried paint on your favorite t-shirt. 

Skip Farr's Class: This class studies the quarterly lesson study and is led by Skip Farr. Many in Skip's class have been attending this class for years, which is a testament to his upbeat and engaging teaching style. This class supports an ongoing Mission project to help provide Bibles to Christians in Gana.

Doreen Wurtz's Class: This is a small class that is dedicated to Bible study and sharing thought provoking discussions.

Yugoslavian SS Class: Mirko Ostojic facilitates this class serving our Czech and Eastern European members who enjoy sharing and studying together. This class meets September thru May only.

Merv Williams & Bob Kuntz Class: Merv and Bob co-facilitate this class which meets in the Sanctuary. 

Brian Gertz: Brian facilitates this class which also meets in the Sanctuary.
