Core Values - Discipleship

In obedience to God's Word, we are dedicated to making disciples. The word disciple means learner -- a disciple is one who studies and accepts the teachings of Christ. Discipleship is evident first in belief and then in our action.

We transform the lives of our church members and the community through scheduled Christian Education classes, Sunday school and Vacation Bible School classes for all ages.

Institute of Christian Discipleship

"Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth." [2 Timothy 2:15 NKJV]

The Institute for Christian Discipleship directs our church wide Bible study offering classes for all ages, pre-kindergarten through adult. Classes are presented in two twelve-week semesters: Spring and Fall.

Each semester, classes are taught that cover the books of the Bible, prayer, theology, church history and special interest, which include: pastoral care, spiritual disciplines, women's and men’s studies, leadership training, institutional ministry, bereavement, etc.

Interim class sessions are available at various times between semesters.

Sunday School

The Mission of our Sunday School program is to provide the opportunity for youth and adults to acquire biblical knowledge and to enhance spiritual growth.

Our objectives include:

  • Defining the essentials of the Christian faith.
  • Helping Christians apply biblical lessons to their personal life.
  • Providing an atmosphere for fellowship, support and spiritual growth.
  • Helping Christians share their gifts, talents and interests with others.

The class curriculum includes special classes for new members to acquaint them with the basics of Christianity, church organization, polity and structure as well as a Family Enrichment Series.

The Family Enrichment Series offer courses in premarital counseling, Christian parenting, managing family finances, ministering to your mate, how to have a Christ centered relationship and various other topics designed to enhance interpersonal relationships.

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible Study is a program that combines Bible Study with fun. It is normally held during the middle of Summer when most Sunday School and Bible study classes are in recess and provides programs for all ages - nursery through adult.

Because we see Vacation Bible School as a time of learning and fun for students of all ages, the curriculum is both age and theme appropriate.
