  • Adam Hamilton Study

    Begins December 1

    Exchange your doubt for courage this Advent and Christmas season. It's not too late! Join our 9:45 Adult Sunday School in Uptown Room 310 as they study Adam Hamilton's book, "Faithful - Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph. At times, it can be tempting just to walk away when we encounter circumstances that we would never have chosen for ourselves. Joseph provides us a great example of humbly obeying God even when we don't understand and faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides.
