EQUIP Electives

EQUIP Adult Education classes meet on Sunday mornings (during services @ 10 & 11:30am), September thru May. Classes are always open and drop-ins are welcome. This is a great opportunity to build relationships with others as you grow in your personal spiritual journey with Christ.

The purpose of EQUIP is to provide people with the resources to understand the "what" and "why" of the Christian faith, and explore how we can live compelling lives in our culture. We seek to accomplish this by offering environments where people can find real answers to tough questions, and explore the biblical meaning of following Jesus as a disciple.
