  • Which Adult Bible Study small group am I in? Where is it located? Check the list on the easel in the downstairs lobby. 
  • What if I'm a visitor or can't find my assigned small group? You may choose any group you like. Classes begin at 10:00 am every Sunday following the 9:45 am opening in the Fellowship Hall.
