people_watching Note: Please contact each ABC to determine their meeting schedules during the Coronavirus response.
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.



Room 201 • 9:35 am

Teacher: Keith Sova

Journey is a ministry for post-college and career adults, early twenties through mid-thirties. We are a community seeking to glorify the name of Christ as we experience fellowship together and engage with the world around us through service projects and outreach activities.


Room 205 • 9:35 am

Leader: Jeremy Foco
Teacher: Tim Van Loh

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.

Crossroads is a community which seeks to live out “a fresh expression of an ancient faith.” Diverse in age and marital status, we are bound by our unified commitment to sound teaching, true community, and active service. This community was formerly called Kainos.


Room 204 • 9:35 am

Leader: Ken Howard
Teacher: Sam Telloyan

Rooted is a community of parents of young children. We are called to raise and train the next generation of image bearers. And we are committed to sincere relationships with one another as we “live a life worthy of the calling we have received” (Ephesians 4.1). This community was formerly called Kaleo.


Room 202 • 9:35 am

Leader: Ed Symanzik
Teacher: Doug Phillips

New Horizons is a life-related Bible study. Active class participation and great fellowship are key elements of this class. This is a multi-generational class of adults, which includes singles, parents of middle school children to college age students and retirees. Our class session begins with prayer for needs in our community and Pastor Phillips joins us for the teaching time.

Please note that you will need to fast forward to the point where the teaching starts.
