Adult Ministries

9:30am -10:30am Every Sunday:

Our Sunday Bible Studies are held from 9:30am-10:30am every Sunday.

9:30am “God Talk” Room 117: We talk about God – His character and His promises – as He is revealed through the Bible and manifested in Jesus Christ. Led by Peggy Hoppes

9:30am “Seekers” Room 216:  Led by Lanne Brehmer.

9:30am “Logos” Room 118.  Led by Richard Wagner

9:35am and 10:45am “Parenting/Grandparenting” Room 215.  Led by Matt Olson

Song of Solomon Bible Study:

Sundays at 9:35am and 10:45am

ATTENTION! Parents and Grandparents:

Have you talked with your children* or grandchildren* about dating, love, romance & sex? If “yes,” good job! If “no,” this study will be a good place to get prepared.


ATTENTION! Young Adults married or  considering marriage:

Gain some profound and helpful insight from God’s Word on how it is meant to be.


This study, Song of Solomon, uses Pastor Tommy Nelson’s now-classic study. It’s more relevant today than ever before. Whether you are single, married, engaged or divorced, this teaching is an absolute must. There is never shame and guilt, but there is laughter, truth, forgiveness, practical guidelines and joy as you say like millions of others, “Wow, I wished I had heard this years ago.”

We meet at 9:35am & 10:45am in The Shepherds’ Cave: Room #214 (across the hall from its original spot).

January 5: We will give an introduction of this course using a trailer that hits on each of the studies.
January 12: The Art of Attraction
January 19: The Art of Dating
January 26: The Art of Courtship – Part I


*Note: A teenage version of this study, entitled “S.O.S. – Song of Solomon”, done by the same pastor, is scheduled for February & March High School class times. Parents & Grandparents, seeing this will give good insight on what the High School study on Song of Solomon will be like and hopefully will give extra incentive to get your young person to these important, life giving classes.
