Church School

Special class for youth

Our pastors and Christian Formation leaders invite all youth and their parents to discuss the popular Netflix show "13 Reasons Why" on Sunday, Aug. 20.

Our discussion will offer a Christian response to the show which explores the suicide of a teenager.

Join us in the Shetler youth room at 9:30 am.

Children's and youth Church School classes return after Labor Day.

Many of our adult classes are on summer break, too, and have combined to form the opportunities below, which begin at 9:30 am.

If you're not sure where to go, enter through the Welcome Center at the corner of North Elm and Fisher Park Circle, and a greeter guide will be available to help.
