Adult Bible Electives (ADE) provide an opportunity to expand your understanding of the Bible. Classes are well-taught, practical, and varied. You’ll enjoy connecting with others around God’s Word each Sunday.
Every twelve weeks a new selection of outstanding electives are offered. Choose from topical studies that speak God’s Word into important areas of life or spend time focusing in on a specific book of the Bible.
Because we believe God uses His Word to transform lives, we place high value on sound teaching and practical application. Minds are renewed and hearts are made whole when biblical truths are embraced and lived out. We encourage you to take a look at the current list of electives being offered then choose the one that sparks your interest or speaks to an area of life you’d like to strengthen.
Generally, these classes focus on solid Biblical content, often working through books of the Bible and/or important matters of the faith such as doctrine, the attributes of God, and theology.
Descriptions of the current classes are listed below and are also available at the Welcome Desk in the North Commons.
