The Adult Class
Come for one week. Come for all the weeks! This class is easy to attend and invite friends to. The content and speakers change each week, but a classroom facilitator keeps things moving along smoothly. Check back to see the weekly topics and updated descriptions. When you find a favorite presenter, be sure to see when they are next scheduled to speak.
All classes run on the Family Nite schedule: Wednesdays, 6:30PM-8:30PM. However, all presentations will end by 8:15PM so that, if you have elementary kids attending Kids Club, you can collect them at 8:15PM when Kids Club ends.
