Financial Peace University

Did you know that 89% of the people in a typical American congregation don'e have a financial safety net?  Shocked? I was too.  But there's HOPE!  And that hope is Financial Peace University.  Through life-changing videos, online tools and resources, and group accountability, you will learn how to create and stick to a budget, save for emergencies, pay off debt, and plan for the future.  Just imagine the impact we could have on the community if we were all debt-free!


Classes will be held in a classroom setting or virtually online.  Keep your eyes open for the next class schedule!  Let's change our future for the better!

Women's Bible Study

Studies are held in Room #112 of the Adult Education wing.  These studies are led by Carol Nygaard and Pam Gardner, who are passionate about sharing Christ with the women in the church and the community.


We will post the next study here and in our weekly e-news when we are able to come back together in person.
