September Is Sunday School Realignment Month

Our adult classes are made up of teachers and communities of people who love the Lord, encourage one another, and expect God to work in and through them each week. Whether you have never tried one of our adult classes or are thinking about trying another, we want you to know that September is a special month to make that happen!
