We exist to welcome people to faith; equip people with a faith that works in real life; and send us in service into the world in Jesus’ name. Through ongoing, open-group Bible studies, we hope to provide foundational discipleship and a lab environment to practice leadership and ministry skills. Every stage of discipleship matters to the development and maintenance of a mature faith and relationship with Jesus Christ.

* Short-term Studies: Classes that vary in topic and time. Classes tend to run 4-6 weeks and are topical in nature.
On-Going Classes
 
Disciple: Disciple Fast Track is an adaptation of the original, bestselling Disciple Bible Study. Ideal for busy people who want to fit an in-depth Bible study into their schedule while retaining the familiar Disciple format. This study helps readers deepen their understanding of Scripture and make connections between what they already know and what they are reading.
While identifying some needs in the world for which ministry is needed, invites participants to understand the scripture message and to respond. Classes meet for a total of 24 weeks, studying Genesis-Exodus and Luke–Acts for 12 sessions each.
 
 
Wesley Bible Study: The Wesley Adult Bible Study is a thoroughly Wesleyan-Arminian approach to biblical interpretation and Christian living, emphasizing the reality that we can become holy as God is holy. Practical application of biblical truth leading to life-transformation is the hallmark of the Wesley Adult Bible Curriculum.
