Core Classes

Sundays 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM 

Core Classes are weekly opportunities for you to grow more deeply in your relationship with Christ and in following Him onto mission. They are short, 6-week courses, for all age groups allowing you to attend multiple courses over the school year. Designed to be practical and informative, the goal of these courses is that they would be transformative opportunities, leading to a deeper walk with Jesus, a deeper knowledge of the faith, and a more effective witness for His kingdom.

Core Classes begin each week at 6:00pm at The Gathering in the Worship Center, a time of worship where all classes meet together to praise the Lord and pray. At 6:15pm, we will separate into our different classes held all over the church: auditorium, fellowship hall, college room, etc. Classes will finish at 7:00pm.

Core Classes are designed for youth, college students, adults, and senior adults. Children will have their own separate activities at the same time.

 We will have 4 sessions throughout the school year:

  • Session 1  I  August 18 - October 6, 2019
  • Session 2  I  October 20 - December 1, 2019
  • Session 3  I  January 5 - February 9, 2020
  • Session 4  I  February 23 - April 5, 2020

Several different topics will be offered each session and childcare is available in the children's building (sign-up on button below). You may join at any time but sign up and attendance at the beginning is encouraged.
