The Seekers class is a fun-loving group of adult couples (kids from elementary to college) and singles that have a close bond with each other and provide support in good and difficult times. We chose the name “Seekers” as we are always seeking to learn more about God and to continue growing in the faith. Studies, led by rotating members, include books of the Bible, Word, seasonal studies, and current topics. Our upcoming studies include: Book of Genesis, Great Characters of the Bible, Advent study, and Separation of Church & State. The group “seeks” mission opportunities and is currently involved with Backpack Ministry, Helen Wright, Family Promise, Angel Tree, UMM/UMW and have been regulars at First Wednesday Fellowship Dinners.

The Well Class is an adult class of singles and couples of all ages. We are diverse in age, professions, ideas and where we are in our journey with Christ. The Well Class is not only a small group within our church; we are a family that cares for each other’s well-being. Our class time consists of prayer, sharing, study, and lively discussion of biblically-based lessons led by various members who provide robust discussions and much humor. We love to laugh! Outside of class we have various social gatherings, including an annual Christmas event that raises funds for local missions. We have participated in mission activities such as Habitat for Humanity, Family Promise, UMM/UMW, 1st Wednesday Night Dinners, and families in need.
The Reflections class is open to all adults. Our purpose is to learn from God’s Word how to live out our lives through understanding God’s ways and purposes through study of Scripture and biblically-related topics. Previous studies include Longing to Pray (J. Ellsworth Kalas).
