Here at The Peoples Church, Christian Education is kind of like a buffet —there are options for everyone. There are groups to discuss current events or local issues. There are groups that do book studies or study books of the bible. There are groups that knit together and others that do yoga together. There are other groups that serve the community in mentoring, serving at Edgewood and other mission organizations.
There is a smorgasbord of opportunities to grow in your faith through learning, conversation and service. We understand that people grow in their faith in different ways and our hope is that there is something on the buffet you like and will help you grow. And if you don’t know what you want to be a part of, that is another great thing about a buffet—you can try something and if it is not for you, skip it the next time and find your favorite dish.
We hope you find something to help you grow in your faith here at The Peoples Church. We want to see everyone deepen their discipleship and faith. May God bless you as you find your place in God’s work here.
