From September to May the Fellowship Class is our Sunday morning faith development program for adults.  Anyone college age and up is welcome to join us for a discussion based on scripture, books, current events or other relevant topics.  The class meets in the adult classroom in the Ransom Fellowship Hall behind the sanctuary.  We meet from 9:30-10:30 a.m., before worship.  The content of the class varies throughout the year.
