Adult Class Offerings

Taught by: Rev. Dr. Tony Collins


This course will look at the first letter that Paul wrote to the Corinthians. It is one of Paul’s greatest letters, dealing with many issues with how the church of Jesus Christ can be empowered to the work of the Kingdom. We will use the scripture as our primary text, along with some extra resources. This class will last for ten weeks.

Taught by: Rev Beth Sullivan

Ever wonder what makes Methodists different from other denominations? Do you wonder how or why we make decisions in the church? Why do we have so many committees? Come and learn more about the roots of Methodism and why we do the things we do.

Taught by: Elaine Edwards


This fast track study will take you through the entire Bible. Attendance during the 24 week study is important for you and the entire group. Elaine is an excellent teacher of Disciple. She facilitates great discussions that help us to see the overall theme of the story of God’s love for us. If you have never done a serious Bible study, this is a great place to start.

Taught by: Jim Lane and Friends


This Bible Study for Men is designed to help men come to a closer relationship with God. It also teaches us how to work together to be accountability partners. Emphasis will be placed on how to pray for change in our lives. 

Taught by: Kathy Nieman


Many of us have been victims of various types of computer problems. Some of them may have just been casual annoyances, but some may have been very expensive and threatening cases of identity theft. Kathy Nieman brings her extensive knowledge to help us know how to protect ourselves from these kinds of attacks. The good thing is that you don’t have to be a computer expert to learn what she has to share.
