In the beginning...
There had to be a beginning. That’s not a particularly earth shattering revelation. It’s not meant to be. But it does make you think. For every place you want to go, every thing you want to achieve, every one you want to meet—there has to be a beginning, a starting place. This is ours. It doesn’t matter to us why you’re starting. Maybe you grew up “churched” but life happened and you grew away. Maybe you didn’t and you’re curious. Maybe you’re active but questioning. Maybe you’re none of these things. Or maybe you’re a healthy mixture of them all. It doesn't matter to us why you’re starting—simply that you are. Our Intro Class class is just that. It’s the beginning.
Over the course of twelve lessons we’ll cover all the basics: from creation, to Jesus and what he’s done to save, how to read God’s Word, baptism, holy communion, faith, daily life and many of other topics to equip you for faith and life.
When is the Intro Class?
Classes typically meet on Wednesdays at 7:00pm and Sunday mornings from 9:40–10:30am between services. New sessions begin in January, June, and September. Free child care is provided during each class.

What are other saying about this class?
“The class helped expand our knowledge and understanding of the Bible. It brought us closer together and made our relationship better than ever. After we finished the class, our newborn Matthew, was baptized along with my husband Michael. We felt so blessed to have found such a wonderful church that brought our family together with Christ.”

“You will always make time for things that are most important. What is more important than hearing what God has to say? I work full time, have a husband and two kids who all have crazy schedules and I found that once I decided to go, everything fell into place.”
“There is always a reason not to … Commit to growing in your faith. It’s always the right time to do that.”
— Matt & Laura
