Join a small group via our Pathways program this Advent (the four weeks before Christmas) as we study When God Comes Down by James A. Harnish. This slim volume costs just $7.

Most studies will begin the week of November 16, following our Change the World Day, but schedules will vary. Modern Family (meets Sundays at 9:30 am) began its study on Sunday, November 2, 2014.

Group classes with rooms and start dates are listed below. Books are available in the church office during the week, outside on the patio following worship, and on the first night of class. We also encourage you to follow and contribute to our Advent Blog** which will be active November 30-December 25. On each of the Advent Sundays, Senior Pastor Dave Summers will preach a sermon on how to “Expect the Unexpected.” Download the Pathways booklet to see which of the classes below meet regularly. The NEW* classes are pastor led and meet on Monday, Wednesday or Thursday evenings.
