Adult Spiritual Formation Opportunities

Adults meet for classes after the worship service.

Family Matters meets once a month to discuss issues related to parenting and maintaining a healthy family. Child care is offered during Family Matters. This class meets in the library.

The Contemporary Christian Concerns class meets every week, except on Sundays with diaconate meetings, to discuss topics which reflect the wide variety of our interests.  Recent conversations include the interaction of art and theology, Baptist identity, testimony about civil disobedience protesting the School of the Americas, and sharing our mission team's experience in Nicaragua.  This class meets in the parlor.       

Adult Bible Study meets in the parlor on Wednesday afternoons at 1 PM.


Adults are also encouraged to grow as disciples in hands-on ways, including teaching children and youth, volunteering in the FOCUS breakfast program or food pantry or participating in mission trips.  We help our members attend local, regional and national conferences like the summer gathering of the Baptist Peace Fellowship, the Wild Goose Festival, and Ecumenical Advocacy Days.
