Adult Education: New Classes

Adults, Young Adults

Adult education is an opportunity to grow in grace through thinking more deeply about faith and life.

This fall we’ll start a new series of Institute courses in addition to our ongoing adult education communities (FOCUS Communities). Classes last for 8-10 weeks, and are designed to help you think carefully and deeply about theology and Scripture and how they apply to all areas of life. Registration is required for courses and space is limited.
