Wednesday evening at 8:00 pm. The format varies. Twice per month, the meeting is devoted to reading scripture passages and prayer. At the other meetings different topics are considered. For example, the Pastor has led a study of the early Church Fathers and provided an overview of cultural world views.
Sunday School classes for all ages are available, Sunday morning from 10:00-11:00 am (before the morning worship service).
The format of the children's classes varies, depending on the composition of the Sunday School. For example, classes began with an open session in which we explored a scriptural theme (e.g., Fruit of the Spirit, The Ten Commandments) and sang praises together. The children were then separated for small-group instruction. During the small-group time we used material published by Great Commissions (Orthodox Presbyterian Church). Children received worksheets and memory work to take home each week.
We strive to provide Biblical instruction which supports the task of parents in bringing up their children to love and serve the Lord.
The Sunday School class for High School students encourages them to discuss the Christian faith as it relates to their day to day lives. We have also used Great Commission material in this class as well as material developed by leaders of the group.
The adult class has studied through a book of the Bible (e.g., recent series included Joshua, Nehemiah and Daniel), reviewed contemporary issues from a Reformed perspective, or studied the Shorter Catechism.
Sunday School classes are held during the school year. No classes are held during the school vacation periods.
In addition there is an organized Sunday School class for infants during the morning service.
A fellowship lunch is held on the second Sunday of each month after the morning service. [In October, the luncheon is held on the first Sunday of the month.] A time of fellowship and Psalm singing is held after the evening service on the fourth Sunday of each month.
The youth meet regularly for Bible study, fellowship, and activities. The study is led by one of the young men.
Held about once a month, at 9:00 on Saturdays. Dates are announced in the Events drop-down menu.
