Sunday morning worship is a traditional worship service for ages 5 to adult starting at 10:30am. There will be a time of prayer, singing of hymns, reading from God's Word, anthems from the chancel choir, and a sermon by Rev. Ron Brown. Our fun nursery staff and volunteers are available take care of all children from newborn to 4 years old during the service.
Prior to our Sunday morning worship, we offer a wide variety of Sunday School classes to attend for all ages and interests. All Sunday School classes are held in our Sanctuary Building (beside the main worship center). Classes start at 9:15am and are finished before morning worship begins. Read below for a description of these classes, and click here for a map of our Sunday School rooms.
Our preschool and younger elementary children will begin learning what it means to love and obey Jesus, and what it means to serve God and others. They will find out that it is Jesus who calls us to belong to him and who leads us into service. In addition to the Bible lesson, there is a time of singing, crafts, and prayer.
During the Spring quarter, the older elementary children will be studying the Ten Commandments. They will look at a Bible story that illustrates a commandment, and will discover how that commandment applies to a concrete, everyday situation. The children will memorize shortened versions of the commandments, together with catechism questions and answers that explain their meaning. In addition to the Bible lesson, there is a time of scripture memory, crafts, and prayer.
Join us Sunday mornings and laugh with us, pray with us, and learn with us! Our Sunday school class is for middle and highschool (guys and gals). We are walking through the Old Testament and reflecting on how it points towards Jesus. We are currently going through 2 Samuel.
A mixed-adult discussion class led by Robert Croft using the ARP Adult Quarterly curriculum. This Winter quarterly lessons cover the Prison Epistles of Paul - Philippians, Colossians, Philemon, and Ephesians - focusing on Paul's encouragement to remain "Captive to the Gospel". (The 2018 Summer lessons will shift to studies from Psalms.) This class meets in the Lauren Merriam room downstairs adjacent to the Sanctuary. All are welcome to join.
Nevin Zimmerman leads the Chapel Class for adults and recently began a study of the Book of Jonah with lessons taught by Matt Teplicek. Weaved into the story of a prophet running from God and a big fish is the picture of God’s mercy and grace. God displays his sovereignty through nature and in the lives of the characters in this fascinating book.. If you think this is a book that is no longer relevant to how we as Christians relate to our society, then you need to come to this class which meets in the chapel located behind the sanctuary building.

While this class is teacher-led, there is always room for discussion and all are welcome to join and enjoy the warm fellowship of this group.
