We have classes for all ages and they average nearly 30 children in each grade from Kindergarten through sixth, and around 40 in each grade from 7 through 12. We also have had classes for young adults and people over age 25. We have had to re-structure the ways in which our groups get together and we have with great success! We are meeting in small groups, limited in-person classes with safe restrictions in place and via Zoom.

Q7: Do you have any large annual projects?

Q10: What sets your church apart from others?
Each church has a “culture.” We’ve been following an initiative we’ve developed named “25 Ways to a Loving Culture.” We believe that when we follow these ways, we are demonstrating our commitment to the Great Commandment, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and all your soul, and with all your mind … [and] you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
