All Adult Bible Communities meet regularly on Sunday morning and take part in a variety of activities outside of their Sunday morning classes. For class times, see the list at the left.
Building on the tradition of Sunday School, Adult Bible Communities provide a place to belong as Christian fellowship is established upon biblical instruction. While we believe that corporate worship should be a priority for all believers, we also know that people desire to belong to a smaller group in which they can grow in their knowledge of the Bible and its application to everyday life. These groups are broadly based on age, stage in life, or shared commitments.

Crossroads • Room 205 • 9:35 am
Welcome to Crossroads! We’d love to have you join us. On a typical Sunday, we start at 9:35 a.m. with an informal icebreaker, prayer, or fellowship. The beginning of class varies from week to week, but our one constant is the study of Scripture from 9:55 to 10:35 where we dig deep and engage in round table conversations.
We are a diverse group at various crossroads in life. Some of us are single. Others married. Some don’t have children. Others do. Some are younger, while others of us are not as young as we once were. Certainly, our backgrounds and personal experiences vary widely. But, no matter the differences, we are bound together by our unified commitment to God’s Word, God’s people, and God’s service.
Please visit us and consider joining our community. We look forward to getting to know you better.
