Images of God

Scripture helps us know God better by giving us several images of what God is like: a rock, a shepherd, a father, and more. Each week, we’ll look at a different one of these images.

Adult classes meet in-person every Sunday at 9:35.

We also offer classes for children and teenagers. You can find out more information on our Children’s Ministry page and our Youth & Family page.
