Proclaiming the True Gospel: Due to Mark Loewen being out of town, we invite all those who would typically attend this class to join Pastor Tim in the MPR for the Genesis Q&A Sunday School class.  
Broken Bread: How to Stop Using Food and Fear to Fill Spiritual Hunger: This women's Sunday School class will be taught by Brianna Batdorf in Classroom 4 as she teaches through this book. We will study a theology of food so that we can stop using food and fear to fuel our spiritual hunger. 
Genesis Q&A: This class will be formatted as a question and answer time where the questions that you have can be submitted on Sunday and discussed during Sunday School. There will be a QR code on your bulletin on Sunday Morning that you can scan and then submit your questions anonymously. After the service, during Sunday School we will sit down and dialogue through your questions together, diving deeper into God’s Word. Be sure to submit your questions on Sunday and join Pastor Tim after the service. (MPR)
