Sunday School



Melissa McClure and Doris Jelley continue leading us in exploring Max Lucado’s work: Unshakable Hope. Each week we unpack one of the twelve of the Bible’s most significant promises, equipping us to overcome difficult circumstances by keeping our focus on the hope found in the promises of Scripture rather than dwelling on the problems in front of us.


For every problem in life, God has given us a promise. Hope is hard to come by these days. Whether it’s heart disease or cancer, job failure or addiction, natural disasters or family disasters, mass murders or mental illness, there are so many reasons to be overwhelmed. In a world full of instability, we do not need more opinions or hunches; we need the definitive declarations of our mighty and loving God. Come join us in focusing on the hopes of Scripture and our shared interpretations of how those hopes infect our lives with possibility.


We have had an average of 15 people in Sunday School the past  months and look forward to you joining the discussion.


We have also enjoyed having several children in church in these summer months. It is a joy to have them share in the liturgy and the Children’s Time in worship.
