The class meets in the adult classroom in the Ransom Fellowship Hall behind the sanctuary. We meet from 9:45-10:45 a.m., before worship. The content of the class varies throughout the year.

In addition to the Sunday morning Fellowship Class, there is a Spiritual Nurture Group that meets the second Monday of the month at 7:00 pm in the Chapel Parlor. The group uses a practice called “Lectio Divina” to reflect on the scripture passages which will be used in worship the following Sunday. We also share insights and experiences to examine where God is at work in our lives. All are welcome!
