Education For All Ages


We believe the Christian life is one of continuing conversation, learning, growth, and engagement with God and one another. Education is offered to encourage, nurture, and equip you to further that conversation. We understand that doubt and wrestling are part of the journey of faith, and seek to make safe space where life and faith can be honestly engaged.
