New Adult Sunday School Class: March 26, 2017

You are invited to join us on Sunday, March 26 at 9:00 a.m. when Rev. Lenzner will begin his new adult Sunday school class entitled:  Family Life.

Do you ever think that your home life and family relationships must be abnormal? Do you feel like a dysfunctional husband, wife, son, daughter or single person? It’s possible that these things may be true. But you might be surprised to discover that most of our family lives in this church are all in the same boat! We’re all struggling and fumbling through life and our family relationships in one way or another. Come join the Adult Sunday School class to receive a reminder that the power of the Gospel holds all of us together as Christian families and singles. In this Family Life series, Rev. Lenzner will lead us through an overview of what the Scriptures have to say about Christian home life and singleness. We’ll talk about marriage, parenting, sibling relationships, singleness, abuse, and more. 

Adult Sunday School: March 19, 2017

Join us this Sunday, March 19, for a special class on Church Unity taught by Rev. Brad Lenzner.

Did you know that URCNA is actively pursuing church unity with churches all around North America and the world? Come join Rev. Lenzner during the Adult Sunday school hour for a class entitled, “Our Work of Church Unity.”  In this class we will discuss the URCNA’s work of ecumenical relations and church unity with other federations and denominations. We’ll learn about the difference between spiritual and institutional unity. We’ll also study the URCNA’s work within the North American Presbyterian and Reformed Council (NAPARC) and our three phases of church unity.
