The Mission of Christian Education is to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to prepare people for ministry and evangelism by teaching Christian principles, modeling Christ-like character, and providing an environment that encourages and nurtures Christian fellowship. A variety of classes are offered in the Fall and in the Spring for those wishing to have an indepth opportunity to study God's word, His will for your life and effective ways to grow in your spiritual life.

Young Adults’ Class
In this class adults from high school graduation through about age 35 gather to learn about Christianity and to share life experiences from a Christian perspective. You are welcome to join us at any time!
Our current topic (March 3 through April 21): “Pride. Lust. Gluttony. Greed. Envy. Sloth. Wrath. These are the "seven deadly sins" made popular by ancient theologians and contemporary movies. We've all dealt with these sins at one time or another—whether we realize it or not—and those of us who follow Jesus would like to stop dealing with them once and for all. In Seven Daily Sins by Jared Wilson we consider the sometimes surprising ways these sins occur in the modern world – even in our own lives – and how Christ's perfect sacrifice frees us to kill sin through repentance and to walk joyfully in newness of life.
Facilitators: Eric and Quinn Bradshaw
How does Mormonism differ from the Christian faith? In this accessible, informative book, former LDS members Bill McKeever and Eric Johnson compare the main points of Mormon theology to orthodox Christianity. You will gain a better understanding of what your Mormon neighbors and friends believe about God, man, scripture, salvation, and revelation and how these beliefs differ from those of Christianity. In the quest to understand their perspective, you will be able to better understand your own beliefs and how to reach out to them with the light of the Christian gospel.
