Class Layout
  • Class sessions meet roughly twice monthly from October to May, with time in between sessions for students to interact with their mentors, and with you, as parents, about what they are learning in class. 
  • On days when class is scheduled, the experience will include both class and worship, alternating between the 9:45 or 11:15 a.m. worship services. Worship attendance is part of the class commitment. 
  • There will be several outside of class opportunities for service, fellowship, and learning.
